Aging, childbirth, and breast-feeding can have an undesired effect on the size and shape of your breasts. A breast lift procedure is designed to restore a more youthful contour and lift breast tissues.
A breast lift procedure does not address lost volume in the breasts; for this reason Dr Sproule may recommend saline or cohesive gel breast implants to be inserted at the same time as your breast lift surgery.
A breast lift surgery may be performed in a few different ways depending on placement of the incisions. The most common breast lift technique requires 3 incisions: one around the areola, one placed vertically from the bottom edge of the nipple to the crease under the breast and the third along the natural curve of the breast crease. Dr Sproule will help his patients decide which incisions are most appropriate.
Once the excess skin is removed, the nipple will be repositioned, the skin previously located above the nipple is pulled down and a new incision will be made to mark the new position for the nipple.
