Lifting, reshaping, and recontouring the breasts is an all-too-common procedure for women who have experienced sagging, stretching, or deflating in their breasts and have developed a lack of confidence due to the effects of aging, gravity, genetics, and pregnancy/breastfeeding. Dr. Jason Emer and his expert plastic surgeons are highly experienced with mastopexy (Breast Lift) procedures, which can restore youthful shape to the breasts by removing excess skin and simultaneously tightening the surrounding tissue. The type of incision required (circumareolar, “lollipop” or “anchor”) and the lifespan of the lift depends on each patient’s condition, breast tissue, genetics, weight and hormonal fluctuations, and desired results. Each procedure is carefully strategized and customized to address the physical, emotional and lifestyle needs of our patients.
Breast lift surgeries are often performed in conjunction with complementary cosmetic procedures, such as a Tummy Tuck, which reduces sagging and laxity in the abdomen; a natural breast augmentation, which uses fat grafting to provide minimal additional volume; breast implant augmentation, for women seeking more significant improvement in volume and shape; and tissue removal, which can improve asymmetrical breasts and assist with minor breast reductions. Breast lift patients may also undergo an areola reduction or recentering, which, like the aforementioned techniques, can be performed without detaching the nipple.
For patients who wish to avoid surgical intervention and minimize recovery time, non-surgical body contouring specialist Dr. Jason Emer can perform non-surgical breast lifts using both radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound energy devices—such as the BTL Exilis Ultra, Venus Legacy, InMode Forma/Contoura, and Ultherapy—to tighten the skin in the desired area, stimulate collagen production, and produce a long-term lift.
