Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who works routinely with women who are interested in improving the contours of their body and breasts. The breasts are a sign of femininity, and women who are unhappy with the appearance, size, and positioning of their breasts may feel self-conscious. This is why our team is pleased to provide the breast lift procedure to help restore confidence and a youthful appearance to the breasts.
How does a breast lift work?
A breast lift is different from breast augmentation. This procedure is tailored towards women who are experiencing problems such as sagging breasts. Due to breastfeeding, significant weight loss, or aging, many women will notice that the breasts will hang lower than they did before. With the breast lift procedure, Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee will strategically remove excess skin from the upper portion of the breast, which then allows her to reposition the breasts higher on the chest. This gives a youthful look that may have been lost over time. In some cases, she may also reposition the areola and nipples to ensure they are located in a more natural location after the breasts have been lifted. Incisions are made in areas where they can be easily disguised to allow for an “untouched” look after the surgery.
How is a breast lift different than breast augmentation?
During the breast lift, excess skin is removed and the nipple area repositioned. It does not address volume loss might also occur due to breastfeeding, significant weight loss, or aging. The breast augmentation procedure is more tailored for patients looking for larger breasts or those wanting to increase breast volume with implants. Some patients choose to have breast augmentation performed at the same time as a breast lift for more dramatic results.
