Time, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations can bring unwanted changes to the breasts. Loss of volume and skin elasticity can cause the breasts to droop and sag and the nipples to point downward or be stretched and enlarged.

Our skilled breast surgeons at Arizona Aesthetic Associates Plastic Surgery perform breast lift procedures at our private plastic surgery clinics in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Gilbert Arizona. A breast lift can restore your breasts to a higher position on the chest. A breast lift can also reduce the size of your areola and raise the position of the areola.

If you are interested in a breast lift in Scottsdale, our doctors are available to meet with you and go over your options and the procedure.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?

You may be a good candidate for a breast lift in Phoenix if you have droopy breasts after pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, or aging.

Women who choose to have breast lift surgery often do so to correct:

  • Sagging, elongated breasts
  • Flattened, deflated breast appearance
  • Enlarged areolas
  • Nipples that have fallen in position
  • Asymmetrical or oddly shaped breasts

Certain considerations should be discussed with our skilled plastic surgeon to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.

Breast lift surgery may be recommended for you if you:

  • Are unhappy with the sagging appearance of your breasts: Breast lift surgery can restore a more attractive, youthful breast appearance and enhance the overall silhouette
  • Are satisfied with your breast size but are not satisfied with your breast shape: While a breast lift can lift and reshape the breasts, a breast lift will not increase the size of your breasts.
  • Are unhappy with the size and position of your areolas
  • Are unhappy with the shape of symmetry of your breasts

Surgical Techniques in Breast Lift Surgery

A breast lift can be performed with a range of incision techniques, based upon the patient’s unique breast shape and the desired goal. The technique your surgeon recommends for you will depend on your existing breast tissue, the quantity of excess skin, and your aesthetic goals. Our knowledgeable breast surgeon will tailor a surgical plan to achieve optimal results with the least possible visible scarring.

Regardless of which of the surgical techniques below are deemed right for you, just know that the doctors at Arizona Aesthetic Associates produce arguably the best breast lift in Phoenix.

Breast lift surgical techniques include:

  • Crescent Lift: This technique causes minimal scarring and is used to correct minimal sagging. It involves a small incision running halfway around the top edge of the areola. A crescent lift may be performed when a breast lift is combined with breast augmentation. A crescent lift is only designed to lift the top part of the areola a few millimeters.
  • Donut Lift: In a peri-areolar or donut lift, the surgeon makes a circular incision around the edge of the areola. This technique leaves only a single scar tracing the edge of the areola. It is used to correct mild sagging and to reduce areola size and is commonly performed in combination with breast augmentation.
  • Lollipop Lift: As the name implies, the lollipop lift involves a circular incision around the edge of the areola and a vertical incision running from the bottom of the areola to the fold underneath the breast. It is used to correct moderate to severe sagging and for more extensive breast reshaping. The lollipop or vertical breast lift is one of the most common breast lift techniques.
  • Anchor Lift: The inverted T or anchor lift allows for dramatic reshaping and correction of significant sagging. It involves three incisions: around the edge of the areola; running vertically from the bottom of the areola to the breast fold; and running horizontally along the breast crease. This technique can be used for women with significant breast reduction and breast lift needs.

Combining Breast Lift with Breast Augmentation Surgery

In some cases, lifting the breasts may not be enough to achieve your cosmetic goals. If your breasts have lost volume and look deflated after pregnancy, weight loss, or aging, you may need breast augmentation with implants or with fat transfer along with your surgical breast lift.

This combination procedure can not only lift the breasts but also restore the volume and the natural curve to the upper breast and place the nipple in a more youthful position.

Benefits of a Breast Lift

For women who want to fight back against the effects of aging, regain their body after pregnancy and childbirth, or regain their breast shape after significant weight loss, breast lift surgery can produce significant improvement.

Benefits of this procedure include breast that look and feel firmer and more youthful. In many cases, our Phoenix breast lift can make the breasts appear fuller without augmentation.

A breast lift can improve a woman’s self-confidence when droopy breasts caused by pregnancy, nursing, or aging have caused her to feel insecure.

Our board-certified plastic surgeons at Arizona Aesthetic Associates Plastic Surgery have extensive training and experience in surgical procedures for breast enhancement, including breast lift, with or without augmentation.*

Schedule a consultation at our Phoenix, Scottsdale, or Gilbert clinic to speak with us to discuss creating a more beautiful, youthful, aesthetically pleasing breast shape.
