Breast Lift And Augmentation Detroit, MI
A breast lift may be needed with a breast augmentation if the breast implant alone cannot fill the skin envelope. Ptosis is the medical term used to describe hanging or lose skin on the breast. A breast lift removes the excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue of the breast. The areola (circular skin around the nipple) is often made smaller at the time of the breast lift. This tissue can also stretch over time. Changes in the breast tissue can be the result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, aging, gravity, and heredity. These changes can cause a loss of upper pole fullness in the breast along with sagging skin. The augmentation restores the upper pole fullness and the lift removes the sagging skin.
The breast lift (also known as a mastopexy) procedure can be completed at the same time as your breast augmentation so that everything can be completed in one day.
Often a breast lift only is needed to achieve the desired result which is why a consultation with Dr. Michelle Hardaway is vital. Various options will be discussed at the time of your consultation.
