Before consulting with a doctor for what is right for you, you likely have a few questions. This page provides general information in regards to a standard breast lift procedure.

In some cases, the combination of a breast lift and augmentation may be desired as some women do experience a loss in size following children or weight loss. So, when you are ready to talk specifics with your doctor, please feel free to reach out to our Fort Collins, Colorado Plastic Surgery Center at your convenience.
What Is a Breast Lift And What Does it Do?
Over time, either due to genetics, a change in weight child birth or hormones, the shape of your breasts will change. The skin around your breasts will lose its elasticity, which causes the breasts to droop or sag. A breast lift is designed to restore the youthful look to your breasts. During an in person consultation, your doctor will be able to assess your body size and frame in order to identify what the natural contour of your breasts should be. At this time, the doctor will go over what the likely cup size of your breasts will be after the procedure.
Combining Breast Procedures
It is possible for you to drop a cup size following a breast lift. Correcting the sag in your breasts will tighten the skin, causing this potential size shift. If you would like to increase the size of your breasts at all, your doctor will likely recommend the combination of a breast lift and augmentation.
What Takes Place During a Breast Lift
In general, in order to perform a breast lift a small incision is made around the breast. There are three different incision options. The best option may be dependent on if you decide on an enlargement as well. These incision options are:
- Peri-Areola - an oval incision around the nipple
- Lollipop - identical to a peri-areola only an additional incision is made down the fold of the breast
- Inverted-T - Similar to a lillipop, only the incision made down the fold is continued further down.
