What Is a Breast Lift?
Breast lift surgery reshapes, tightens, lifts, and repositions breasts that are sagging, pendulous, or elongated. Factors such as time, aging, gravity, pregnancy, large fluctuations in weight, and breastfeeding can all contribute to breast sagging. Women with breast sagging, misshapen breasts, and downward-pointing nipples can all benefit from breast lift surgery. If desired, breast lift surgery can be combined with breast augmentation to further enhance breast shape and volume.
A breast lift is commonly performed in combination with additional breast surgeries, such as augmentation and reduction.

Achieved With Breast Lift Surgery
Breast sagging is commonly associated with aging. The effects of time and gravity weigh the breasts down, and they inevitably begin to sag over time. Breast lift surgery eliminates sagging and restores youthful perkiness, helping you to look and feel younger.
If the breast tissues become overly stretched, sagging breasts may look and feel loose and deflated. Breast lift surgery tightens the breasts so that they look and feel firmer, tighter, and more attractive.
As breast tissues stretch and sag, the breasts can develop a pendulous or elongated shape. Additionally, the areolas may become enlarged, and the nipples may begin to point downward. Breast lift surgery tightens the tissues to restore a rounder, more natural breast shape. The procedure also reduces areola size and repositions the nipples so that they point in a more youthful, upward direction.
Breasts that sag can negatively affect your overall body shape. With breast lift surgery, the shape of the breasts is enhanced and contributes to a more attractive and youthful body shape. The results of breast lift surgery will not only enhance your appearance but can also create a more flattering body shape both in and out of clothing.
Breast Lift Surgery Options
In most cases, Dr. Chin will make an incision that encircles the areola, goes vertically down to the breast crease, and extends along the breast crease. Dr. Chin will then move the nipples upward into a more attractive position and tighten the breast tissue and skin. He will then remove excess skin as necessary. Afterward, the breasts will be firmer, rounder, more lifted, and more youthful.
Breast Lift With Augmentation
Dr. Chin will perform traditional breast lift surgery but will also insert breast implants to enhance breast volume. This technique is often sought by women who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy and nursing and want to improve the breast shape. Dr. Chin will insert the implants through the same surgical incisions used to lift and tighten the breast tissues. Afterward, the breasts will be firmer, rounder, fuller, more lifted, and more youthful.
