Reasons to Do Breast Lift
In some women, particularly those who breast fed or lost some weight, the breasts may sag. This is because the inner tissues of the breast have atrophied (shrunk) making the skin too big for its contents. This condition is called in medical terms “ptosis”. A mild degree of ptosis can be treated by one of two techniques.
The first is removing a crescent shaped area of skin at the top of the areola (the dark circle around the nipple) and closing the gap by sutures. This will achieve 2-4 cm of lifting. This procedure suits women who are happy about the size of their breasts and just want their breasts lifted to achieve a normal shape. However, if an increase in size is also desired, breasts implants can both augment (enlarge) the breasts and lift them.
In the case of moderate ptosis, where more skin is removed, a larger area of skin has to be removed from around the navel to tuck the breasts’ skin from all directions. Implants may or may not be used, depending on the amount of breast tissue and the patient’s desire. In severe cases or “Grade 3”, a more radical removal of skin is involved.
