Breast Lift Atlanta

Genetics & Lifestyle

Breast Lift surgery (mastopexy) lifts the breast to a higher, more youthful position. It reshapes a sagging breast & can dramatically affect the way your bra functions, how your clothing fits…how comfortable you are during daily activities & exercise.

Breast Lift Genetics and Lifestyle

A breast Lift is for the woman whose breasts droop too much. She’s inherited that tendency, lost a lot of weight, or is experiencing post pregnancy sagging. The breast may be asymmetrical in shape, the nipple no longer points upward or outward, balance is lost and the overall appearance is an “aged look.”

Breast Lift surgeries are one of the most common procedures we do today. Women are coming in droves to ask about safe, reliable options to help them look better and healthier. Mommies want their pre baby body shapes back again along with restored function and overall balance.

Breast Lift Overview

The breast lift surgery returns the breast to a more youthful shape and position. The nipple and areola are moved to a higher naturl point of projection. Underlying breast tissue is tightened and sagging breast skin is reduced. It’s possible to reduce the size of an enlarged areola. The result is perky, more youthful looking breasts. If more volume is needed, the breast can be augmented with a silicone or saline breast implant. Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift are commonly performed together to achieve the most desirable results.

Incisions are placed as follows, depending upon your needs:

  1. Around the Areola – called periareolar
  2. Vertically down from the areola to the breast crease – the Vertical approach
  3. Horizontally at the breast crease – the Inverted “T” or anchor incision approach

These specifics are determined during your personal consultation with Dr. Rudderman when he creates your personalized treatment plan. Determining factors include: degree of breast ptosis (sagging), skin elasticity and the amount of excess skin to be removed.

  • Dr. Rudderman and his staff made the experience easy and comfortable. They were realistic communicating surgery expectations, expected pain levels and down time from work. Nurses were informative and friendly and wait times minimal. I also liked the fact that Dr. Rudderman does all his own work and doesn't let other less experienced people do parts of the surgery the way other doctors may. I'm only one week out of the surgery, but I am very satisfied with the results so far.
