fullness and contour changes
Breast fullness and contour changes as a woman ages. It’s just a fact of life that most women are often faced with. Child bearing and the affects of gravity take their toll on a woman’s breasts, and can result in drooping or sagging breasts, that have become lacking in volume and cleavage.
If your breasts are just not what they used to be, you might consider having your breasts lifted and contoured back to their former, more youthful appearance. A breast lift procedure by the skilled Dr. Yi at Villages Institute of Plastic Surgery can turn back time by raising and sculpting your breasts. Consultations are free and you can even see the results of your breast lift procedure “before surgery” with our plastic surgery virtual imaging!

Breast lift surgery is a surgical procedure that raises the breasts and re-positions the nipples. Often the surgeon will use breast implants and possibly liposuction to replace lost volume and sculpt the breast to a more youthful and perky appearance. The following is a general description of the breast lift procedure. However, each patient has unique needs and as a result, the procedure is adjusted to accommodate those needs. During the procedure, the surgeon will make an incision around the areola, (leaving the nerves and blood vessels attached in most cases). Two other incisions are made from the base of the areola downward to the fold area of the breast where the breast meets the abdomen. And lastly, an incision is made along the fold of the breast, again where the breast meets the abdomen.
The excess skin between the two downward incisions is completely removed, and excess fat and glands are carefully removed from the breast using liposuction. During this part of the procedure, the surgeon will reshape and contour the breasts, and possibly use breast implants. In the final stages of the procedure, the surgeon sutures the areola and nipple in it’s new higher position, draws the bottom of the breast together with what now appears as a single incision, and closes the incision in the fold of the breast to complete the procedure.

youthful looking breasts
While breast lift surgery can result in an improved level of confidence and much more youthful looking breasts, there are certain circumstances, limitations and risks associated to the procedure that anyone who is considering this procedure should be aware of. This procedure will result in permanent scars around the areola, in a straight line down from the base of the areola to the fold where the breast meets the abdomen, and in the fold along the base of the breasts. However, these scars will be hidden by a bra or bathing suit. Patients may experience issues with breast feeding and may also loose some feeling or sensitivity in certain areas of their breasts. Most often, the areola is not completely detached from the breasts during this procedure in order to prevent numbness. Patients usually retain full feeling in their breasts. However, in certain cases, it may be necessary to remove the areola and nipple so they may be moved to a more natural position. If the patient elects to have their nipples and areolas detached, the patient will loose feeling and sensitivity in the areola and nipple, and will not be able to breast feed.
