His practice is committed to providing body surgeries that help individuals look and feel their best. One treatment often considered by women is breast lift surgery.

How Does a Breast Lift Work?

A breast lift is a cosmetic procedure that involves making several small incisions around the breasts and then moving the nipples and surrounding tissue to create a more youthful-looking appearance. This surgery is commonly performed on women who have lost volume in their breasts after pregnancy or those whose breasts are sagging due to age and gravity. The procedure can also be used to correct asymmetries between one side of the body and another.

How Is the Procedure Performed?

During a breast lift, Dr. Thomas Wiener will make incisions either underneath your breasts or around your nipples so that he or she has full access to the tissue beneath them. Surgical techniques vary based on individual needs and preferences; however, our team will perform the procedure in such a way as to reduce any scarring that may remain afterward for the most natural appearance.

Is a Breast Lift the Same as Breast Augmentation?

No, a breast lift is different from breast augmentation, which involves using implants to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. A breast lift only addresses sagging or asymmetry issues in the appearance of the breasts. If you are looking for a noticeable change in both shape and size, then it may be best to schedule an appointment with Dr. Thomas Wiener to discuss your options and determine what procedure will best meet your needs.

Are There Any Risks Involved?

Like any other type of cosmetic surgery, there are certain risks that can come with having a breast lift. These include bleeding during recovery, infection at the incision site, scarring around the nipples or incisions, changes in nipple sensitivity, and potential complications with anesthesia. This is similar to many other surgical procedures that are performed on the body.
