What is the Breast Lift Procedure?

  • Size and shape of the breast

  • Position and size of the areolas

  • Degree of breast sagging

  • Skin elasticity, quality and amount of extra skin

Breast lift surgery procedure involves the following steps:


Medications are administered to the patient. Either an intravenous sedation or general anesthesia is given to ease any discomfort.


Commonly there are three kinds of incision patterns and it includes:

  • Around the areola

  • Around the areola and down vertically to the breast crease from the areola

  • Around the areola, down vertically to the breast crease and along the breast crease horizontally

Reshaping Your Breasts

After the incision is made by your plastic surgeon:

  • The underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaping is done in order to improve the form and firmness of the breast.

  • To give a natural and perky look the nipple and areola are repositioned.

  • If required, excising skin at the perimeter reduces the enlarged areolas.

  • To compensate for loss of elasticity excess breast skin is removed.

  • Sometimes for breast uplift even breast implants can be used.

Closing the Incisions

Once the breasts are reshaped the incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue. The incision on the skin is closed with sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tapes.
