Breast Lift Surgery At Our Madison, Wisconsin Practice

An effective breast enhancement procedure offered at our cosmetic surgery practice in Madison, Wisconsin, breast lift surgery helps to restore firmness to breasts that have begun to sag or droop. Over time, a woman’s breasts may begin to lose their original shape and elasticity for any number of reasons, including pregnancy, drastic changes in weight, and the natural effects of aging. Through breast lift surgery, Clifford King, M.D., Ph.D. can compensate for these effects by removing excess skin and tissue, tightening the remaining breast tissue, and repositioning the nipples. Dr. King performs breast lift surgery to help patients achieve their goals, creating a firmer, more youthful figure that is completely natural looking and balanced.

Breast Lift Procedures

At our Madison, Wisconsin practice, Clifford King, M.D., Ph.D. performs various breast lift procedures, depending on the needs of the patient. In standard breast lift surgery, an anchor-shaped incision is made to follow the natural contours of the breast. Excess skin is removed, and the areola and nipples are repositioned to a higher place on the breast. The breast is then reshaped by tightening remaining tissue. Stitches typically extend from below the nipple down to the breast’s lower crease.

Patients who have smaller breasts and minor sagging may be better suited to concentric mastopexy, a breast lift procedure that is less invasive, involves less skin removal, and only entails minimal incisions. During concentric mastopexy, two circular incisions are made around the areola and a “doughnut” shaped section of skin is removed. The remaining tissue is stretched and reattached to the areola, creating firmer breasts. Stitches for this procedure only involve the area around the areola.

Breast Lift Surgery Combined with Augmentation

If desired, Dr. King can combine breast lift surgery with breast augmentation at his Madison, Wisconsin practice. A breast lift performed in tandem with breast augmentation helps patients achieve a fuller, shapelier look by not only lifting the breasts but also increasing cup size.

This combination procedure is performed in the same way as a breast lift with the added step of implant insertion. After the incisions have been made, the breast implant will be placed under the pectoral muscle or the mammary gland and the remaining breast tissue will be reshaped around the implant to lift the breast. The results of breast lift surgery combined with augmentation last significantly longer than the results of a breast lift alone. Breast Implants are far less susceptible to gravity and the effects of aging.

Breast Lift Surgery to Correct Asymmetry

Slight asymmetry of the breasts is very common among women, but when the asymmetry is more pronounced it can affect your confidence. If one breast hangs lower than the other, a breast lift can help to correct this kind of asymmetry. At his Madison, Wisconsin practice, Dr. King has performed many breast lift procedures to correct asymmetry. A lift of the lower breast and the careful repositioning of its areola and nipple will bring the bustline gracefully back into balance.
