Breast Lift

As we age, gravity takes its toll on our bodies in various ways. Unfortunately for women, the delicate breast tissue does not hold up as well to the effects of aging and gravity as they might like. In addition, the hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can accelerate the breakdown of breast tissue, leaving the breasts sagging and droopy. Dr. Michael Bogdan performs mastopexy, also known as breast lift, for women from Fort Worth, Dallas, and Plano, TX, and other communities near Grapevine, who want to restore their breasts to a more youthful position.

Choosing Breast Lift

The surgery involves removing the excess, stretched skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. If increased volume is desired, then breast augmentation using saline or silicone gel implants can be performed for a more complete breast makeover. During your consultation, Dr. Bogdan will discuss various surgical options with you. For a brief overview of breast lift options, please visit the Which Breast Lift Is Right for Me? page.

Dr. Bogdan will determine how to approach your breast lift procedure based on the degree of sagging, or ptosis, which exists. Generally, the more the breast has descended, the more extensive the surgery will be. Typically, the procedure will utilize one of three techniques:

  • The concentric, or “doughnut” mastopexy removes a small circle of skin from around the areola (the more darkly pigmented skin surrounding the nipple). The nipple is moved to a higher position on the chest, while remaining attached to nerves and blood vessels. The remaining skin is reattached around the areola, resulting in a lifted, tightened breast. This method is appropriate for women with a small degree of sagging who require only a subtle lift.
  • The vertical or “lollipop” mastopexy utilizes an incision that encircles the areola, then descends vertically to form the namesake lollipop shape. The addition of the vertical incision allows for more skin and tissue to be removed from the lower part of the breast. This method allows for the correction of moderate sagging, and results in less residual scarring than the anchor-shaped incision. Please see this animated lollipop breast lift video for more information.
  • The anchor-shaped mastopexy utilizes the same incision as the vertical mastopexy, but adds a curved incision along the underside of the breast, resulting in the anchor-shape. This is the most commonly used incision for breast lift, as it corrects the greatest degree of ptosis. Through the more extensive incisions, more skin and breast tissue is removed, resulting in the greater degree of lifting and shaping that many breast lift patients require. Please see this animated anchor incision breast lift video for more information.

Keep in mind that a breast lift will not increase overall breast volume. It is primarily about reshaping the breasts. If you want to increase breast size, Dr. Bogdan can recommend a breast implant that is custom-sized to your cosmetic goals. If you need both a breast lift and augmentation, please read Dr. Bogdan’s philosophy on the Mastopexy/Augmentation procedure.
