Breast Lift by Dr. Erick Sanchez at Sanchez Plastic Surgery in Baton Rouge, LA.

What is a Breast Lift?

Let's talk about breast lifts. I have patients from all different ages and sizes for breast lift. Breasts fall for different reasons. The suspension system in the breast stretches out when you're pregnant, and so after pregnancy your breasts tend to lose some volume and drop. And then as well as patients that gain and lose weight. These breasts stretch out. You lose weight and your breast tissue falls, so lots of different patients for lots of different reasons want their chest and their breasts back to a youthful position, and that's what a breast lift does for you. 

A breast lift in simplicity puts your breasts back on your chest. I have a lot of patients that come in and they say, "Oh, I want to go back to where I was when I was 20. I want to go back to 18." And sometimes that's possible in many ways, but a breast lift in itself is for we're gonna add some scars to your breast. There gonna be hidden. There gonna be on the bottom part of your breast, but we're gonna take your nipple areola complex and we're gonna put it back in the appropriate position. 

In addition to that we can add implants. So, some patients they want this higher rounded fuller breast, and to do that a breast lift will make your skin envelope tighter, and perkier, but in addition for a lot of patients we're going to end up adding an implant. And so, where you fit on that side of the spectrum I can take a look. We'll take some measurements. That's the whole thing understanding if you're a good candidate. If you have more questions about a breast lift procedure please give us a call.
