Know Your Breast Lift Procedure Options

For some women with ample breast tissue, over time they tend to have something known as “ptosis” or droopiness due to gravity, heredity, severe weight gain or loss, or childbirth and breastfeeding.

Fortunately,  Dr. Millard and Dr. Franco-Webb perform various types of breast lift surgeries to help women return to a more desired shape and breast position.


How Does a Breast Lift Procedure Work?


A full breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure which reverses the effects of gravity by raising and tightening sagging breasts. This procedure allows your surgeon to remove excess skin and tissue which allows for a precise position of your breasts.

This incision is permanent, however it will become less noticeable over time.

A breast lift can also be performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation for fuller, younger looking breasts.

Pioneers in Breast Surgery

Dr. Millard is the only surgeons offering the VASER® Breast lift, which is ideal for women who have some ptosis (droopiness) but don’t need a full mastopexy. By utilizing VASER® technology during the procedure, the surgeons can contract your breast tissue, providing more of a lift than a breast implant alone would. Your surgeon will determine if you are a candidate for this procedure at your consultation.
