Breast Lift

Breast Lift, Myrtle Beach SC

During a breast lift procedure, loose, excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is tightened. As a result, the overall shape of the breasts is improved, and they are lifted to a new, more upright position. Your physician will assess the degree of ptosis or sagging, of your breasts, to determine the procedure that is best for you. There are generally three degrees of ptosis classified as minor, moderate, and severe, which are determined by the position of the areola relative to the inframammary fold and the sternum. In general, minor ptosis exists if the areola lies at the inframammary fold. If the areola lies approximately one to two centimeters below the inframammary fold, the breasts have moderate ptosis, whereas the areola may lie two to three centimeters below the inframammary fold and rotate downward in cases of severe breast ptosis. There are four basic breast lift techniques known as the periareolar, circumareolar, vertical, and anchor technique, used to correct increasing ptosis, respectively.
