Breast Lift Surgery Details
Each breast lift procedure at Beautify at AMS is painstakingly customized to address the physical, emotional, and lifestyle needs of each unique patient. The procedure is performed with the patient under general anesthesia, takes 2-3 hours if being done on its own (without additional procedures).
There are different types of incisions that can be used for a breast lift: circumareolar, lollipop, or anchor. The type of incision used for your surgery will depend on your specific condition, breast tissue, genetics, weight and hormonal fluctuations, and your desired results. During your consultation, you will be told in detail about the type of incision that will be used in your procedure.
Once the incision has been made, your surgeon will remove the excess, stretched-out breast skin. After this, the breast tissue will be lifted to a higher position on the chest and the breast tissue will be contoured. Some patients may also need an areola reduction or re-centering, which can be performed without detaching the nipple. Once these steps are complete, your surgeon will close the incisions.
