Over time a woman’s breasts can lose some of their fullness and firmness due to heredity, pregnancy, breast-feeding, changes in weight, and aging can also contribute to this problem. If you want to restore the shape of your breasts, a breast lift could be your answer. A breast lift is a surgical procedure that raises and firms the breast by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. The breast lift can also reduce the size of the areola (the pigmented skin around the nipple). A breast lift won’t make your breasts bigger, but it will take what nature gave you and point it in the right direction. If desired, it can often be combined with a breast augmentation.
The incision necessary for a breast lift can vary. One type of incision is around the areola. Another is made vertically down the breast from the areola to the breast crease. The third type of incision is made in the natural crease below the breast. Often a combination of these is necessary for optimal breast reshaping. Dr. Krummen will advise you on your options when you meet with her for your initial consultation.
