Breast Lift Q & A

What is a breast lift?

A breast lift is a surgical technique Dr. Giuffrida uses following the removal of breast implants. The goal of surgery is to restructure your breasts using fat transfers and skin removal to restore the position and fullness of your breasts.

Dr. Giuffrida also offers breast reduction surgery to decrease the size of your natural breasts while still maintaining their volume and overall appearance.

Why should I consider a breast lift after implant removal?

After the removal of your implants, your breasts lose their firmness and leave you with sagging, excess skin. To address these issues, Dr. Giuffrida at Turner Medical Arts performs a breast lift procedure, removing extra skin and lifting breasts into a higher position.

In addition to your breast lift, you may also consider other breast augmentation procedures to improve the look of your breasts. Dr. Giuffrida can reconstruct your breasts with fat transfers, adding natural volume to improve breast size and shape.

To determine if a breast lift or augmentation procedure is right for you, Dr. Giuffrida reviews your medical background and your expectations for surgery. He is highly skilled in resculpting the breasts after implant removal to prevent disfigurement and increase your satisfaction with the results.

What happens during a breast lift?

Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Giuffrida uses a number of surgical techniques to enhance the appearance of your breasts. If you have implants, he starts by carefully removing them without damaging surrounding breast tissue or the implants.

Following the implant removal, Dr. Giuffrida can augment your breasts using fat transfer techniques. Fat transfers involve the removal of unwanted fat from your flanks or abdomen and reinjecting it into your breasts. This provides added volume to your breasts that looks and feels natural.

For some women, sagging breast tissue can interfere with the overall appearance and contours of the breasts. In this case, Dr. Giuffrida can remove excess skin and position the breasts higher up on the chest.
