In Denver, Colorado, breast lift surgery is chosen by women from Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, and the Denver area to elevate and reshape sagging breasts and to give a perkier, more youthful appearance. Sometimes, breast implants are placed during the same surgery to create more fullness than would result from a lift alone.
The need for a breast lift is usually the result of an inflation and deflation of breast volume due to pregnancy or significant weight loss. Sometimes, merely gravity and time can cause the need for a mastopexy. And in some cases, women develop with lower, relaxed breasts and can benefit from a lifting procedure.
A breast lift entails removal of the extra skin that is allowing the breasts to drop to a less attractive position. The breast tissue (parenchyma) with the arealae and nipples attached, are moved upward, and the lower pole tissues are tightened to hold the breasts up. Underlying breast parenchyma is sewn together in the lower pole to reinforce the lift prior to closure of the skin. Occasionally, women are candidates for the areolar lift that does not require the vertical scar down the front of the breasts. Ultimately, the best shape must be achieved using the minimal scarring to do so. Most women feel the scar is a small price to pay for a perkier breast position.
