Many women think that in order to lift their breasts and restore them to their perkier, more alert days, they have to get implants as well. Fortunately, this just isn’t true. With a natural breast lift, patients can address sagging, limp breasts without increasing their cup size in the slightest. This is perfect for women seeking a less obvious change, or for those who are uncomfortable augmenting their breast size for any reason.

Here’s how a natural breast lift works:

  • Nipples will be moved up—A successful breast lift will involve relocating the nipples to a higher-up, perkier position. The surgeon will also ensure the nipples are placed symmetrically. This gives the breasts a more youthful look overall.
  • Areolas will be reduced—Reducing the size and width of the areolas can often deliver a more youthful appearance too, so depending on the size of yours, the surgeon may recommend this change as well.
  • Excess skin will be removed—With breast sagging also comes excess skin—especially if the patient has fluctuated in weight over the years or had a child (or multiple children). The surgeon will remove this loosely hanging skin, giving the breasts a tighter, tauter look and feel.

Every breast lift is different, and the exact strategy for improving appearance—including where incisions and sutures must be made—depends on the size, shape and level of sagging of the breasts, as well as the patient’s desired final look.
