Breast Lift

Embark on a transformative journey, where the boundaries of beauty and redefined, and your confidence reaches unprecedented heights.

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, can address various issues and transform the appearance of your breasts. Whether it’s extreme droopiness, shapelessness, or a mild need for reshaping, our procedures can help. Weight loss, lactation, and gravity can all contribute to sagging breasts. Dr. Stephenson specializes in breast lifts in Atlanta and has successfully helped patients with a wide range of breast configurations.

During a breast lift, the amount and location of skin removal depend on the shape of your breasts. This is why some lift healed incisions only go around the areola, while others extend down to the bottom or across the bottom as well. While everyone wants to minimize incisions, the most crucial factor is selecting the technique that will create the most beautiful breast shape. Dr. Stephenson is highly skilled in using a variety of breast lift techniques to reshape stunning breasts during your breast lift in Atlanta.

Dr. Stephenson offers four types of breast lift procedures, each tailored to your unique needs and desires. During your consultation, he will discuss these techniques in detail, considering factors such as your anatomy and lifestyle.

  1. Donut lift: Also known as a circumareolar lift, is ideal for minimal breast sagging, this approach involves a hidden incision around the dark pigmentation of the areola.
  2. Lollipop lift: Also known as a circumvertical lift, is commonly performed technique includes an incision around the areola and down the breast vertically, providing elevation and reshaping.
  3. Anchor lift: Also known as a wise pattern lift, is designed for those with significant breast sagging, the anchor lift is the most comprehensive option. It involves incisions around the areola, vertically to the breast crease, and horizontally along the inframammary fold, allowing for thorough tissue excision and reshaping.
  4. Crescent lift: is a minimally invasive breast lift option that focuses on improving the position and symmetry of the nipple. With a small incision made around the top crescent of the nipple, this technique can provide a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing result.

Clients often ask if a breast implant alone could fill out and lift the breasts to avoid scars. While it’s understandable to be concerned about scars, substituting an implant for a necessary lift only worsens the problem. Implants cannot correct droopiness and can actually make it worse by adding weight. In some cases, a larger implant may be required to adequately fill a lax breast envelope, which may not align with your desires.

It’s important to acknowledge that not all patients will have ideal healed surgical incisions, regardless of the technique used. A breast lift involves a trade-off between shape and healed incisions and it’s a personal decision for each patient to make.
