Breast Lift in Atlanta

You look in the mirror, and you don’t like what you see.

You look in the mirror, and you notice your breasts don’t look the same as they used to. They sit lower on your chest than they did a few years ago. Your favorite bra gives them the perkiness you like, but you want them to look full and supple even in less supportive bralettes or swimsuits. You want a more rounded shape with your nipples pointing forward. Perhaps you want your breasts to be larger as well. If this sounds familiar, you may be an ideal candidate for a breast lift or a combined lift and augmentation at our plastic surgery centers in Fayetteville and the Atlanta area.

At Advanced Aesthetics Plastic Surgery Center, we are experts when it comes to improving the shape of breasts. Our experienced board-certified plastic surgeons are knowledgeable and well-practiced in all of the latest surgical techniques for breast lifts and other breast enhancements, including the anchor, lollipop, donut and crescent lifts. We also commonly perform these lifts in combination with a breast augmentation using a silicone gel breast implant, for women who want to improve both the size and the shape of their breasts. If you want to enhance your natural breasts, our surgeons’ years of experience mean they can help you create breasts that perfectly complement your body. Let us guide you through the maze of choices to craft a treatment plan customized for you and your goals.

 What is a Breast Lift?

The main goal of a breast lift — also called a mastopexy — is to adjust the positioning of the breast tissue and nipple so that the entire breast sits higher and more forward-projecting position on the chest. This is accomplished through three major avenues. First, the nipple-areola complex can be elevated into a more aesthetic position so it points forward and not downward. Second, your surgeon can reduce the circumference of the areola to visually balance its size with your breast tissue and help your breasts look fuller. Finally, the breast skin and tissue itself is repositioned to create a pleasing lifted, round and symmetrical shape.

Breast lifts are exceptionally customizable procedures because there are several different approaches depending on the current shape and size of your breasts. Your surgeon can help you choose where to place your incision, decide whether you would benefit from implants and determine what kind of lift would be best for your lifestyle.

Is a Breast Lift in Atlanta Right for Me?

There are so many kinds of breast surgeries, it can be difficult to know which one is best for you and your goals. In particular, many women are unsure what their ideal option is between the choices of a breast lift or a breast augmentation — both surgeries claim to improve the shape and appearance of the breast. There are a few good ways to tell if you might be a good candidate for a breast lift instead of an augmentation, or if you might want to pursue a combined lift and augmentation surgery.

First, you should ask yourself if you are happy with the size of your breasts. If you do not want to make your breasts any bigger but you want to change their shape, then a breast lift without an augmentation is likely going to be right for your needs. Another good indicator is to look in the mirror and see if your nipples sit below your inframammary fold (the crease where your breast meets your chest wall). If this is the case, you will need a lift to reposition your breast tissue. You might also be a good candidate for a breast lift if your areolas are larger than you would like, if your breasts are splayed outwards or if your nipples point downwards.

If you have concerns that indicate you need a breast lift but you also want to increase the size of your breasts, it is very common for women to combine breast lifts with augmentations. This dual procedure often provides complete breast rejuvenation, giving breasts a better position as well as a more rounded, fuller shape. Breast implants can be used to restore volume to the upper half of the breast, a common concern with breast sagging because heavier breast tissue sinks to the bottom of the breasts and leaves them looking “deflated.” A breast lift and augmentation can fix these concerns in a single surgery session, saving you time and money.

Breast Lift Surgery & Recovery – Fayetteville, Atlanta, GA

When you choose a breast lift with Advanced Aesthetics Plastic Surgery, we ensure your comfort and safety every step of the way. We perform all of our surgeries in our state licensed and certified Surgi-Center, our newest and cutting-edge surgical facility in Fayetteville. Our breast lift procedures are usually performed usually under general anesthesia, though some patients choose to have local anesthesia instead based on personal or health preferences. Depending on whether you have decided on a lift or a combination lift and augmentation, your surgery can take about three or four hours. You will spend 30 to 60 minutes in our recovery room, and then your surgeon will clear you to return home to begin the healing process.

The procedure causes minimal discomfort thanks to the anesthesia and our surgeon’s pain management recommendations, but you will require some TLC at home for several days. We recommend taking about two weeks away from work or daily activities to ensure that your breasts are healing well. It takes a bit longer — about six weeks — before you can resume more strenuous activities like exercise. The six-week mark is also usually when our patients are ready to take follow-up photos and reveal their results.
