Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia and South Jersey, Dr. Paul M. Glat, MD, FACS, performs breast lifts for patients desiring breast enhancement.
As women age, their breasts tend to sag or stretch. To minimize this trend and rejuvenate our patients’ appearance, Dr. Paul Glat offers breast lift procedures to patients in Philadelphia and the surrounding area.
Unlike breast augmentation, which involves the use of breast implants, a breast lift repositions and reshapes the breasts so that they appear perkier, firmer, and more youthful.* Because breast lift procedures involve refining the shape and appearance of a patient’s natural breasts without the use of augmentation, it is a popular choice for women who are happy with their cup size but would like to undo the effects of aging, weight gain (or loss), or pregnancy.
At the plastic surgery center of Dr. Paul M. Glat, our team has extensive experience with breast lift procedures. If you are interested in revitalizing your bust and turning back the clock, Dr. Glat can provide you with superb patient care.* To schedule a consultation with our team or to learn more about breast lift surgery, contact our Philadelphia-area cosmetic surgery practice today.
Two common techniques can be utilized in a breast lift procedure: anchor incision breast lift surgery and doughnut mastopexy (a peri-areolar breast lift procedure).
Anchor Incision Breast Lift
The most common methodology for breast lift surgery utilizes an anchor (or keyhole) incision which runs from the breast flap up and around the areola. Because of the placement and size of the incision, this technique can result in more visible scarring; however, the procedure has been proven safe and effective, as the size of the incision grants the surgeon superb access to the breast tissue. Once the incision has been made, excess skin and breast tissue is subtracted and the nipples are repositioned so that they appear higher on the breast. By removing excess breast tissue and repositioning the areola, drooping and sagging can be greatly minimized, resulting in firmer breasts with a more refined shape.*
With a doughnut mastopexy, a piece of circular tissue from around the areola is subtracted. Because the incision is made along the outer edge of the areola, there is no visible scarring on the front wall of the breast. The areola itself can be reshaped or reduced for a more attractive appearance.* After the incision has been made around the nipple, excess skin and fat tissue is taken out, and the surrounding tissue is pulled taut and reattached. This breast lift procedure has numerous benefits and is a popular choice among our Philadelphia-area patients. If you are considering breast lift surgery, we can discuss your goals with you in person and determine the most effective methodology to meet your needs. Rest assured, Dr. Glat and our team takes every precaution to ensure your health, comfort, and satisfaction.
The benefits of breast lift surgery are numerous; women often feel rejuvenated, finding that they have increased self-confidence and self-esteem.* As the impression you make on others is often based, at least in part, on your own self-image, the results of breast lift surgery can have a tremendous impact on your personal life. With renewed confidence, you’re more likely to smile and carry yourself with a pleasant disposition.* We stress to our patients that breast lift surgery brings about not only physical changes, but mental changes as well.
Women who would like to rewind the effects of pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss, or the aging process may be suitable candidates for breast lift surgery.* At our Philadelphia-area practice, we are happy to educate potential patients on the risks and benefits of this procedure so that they can determine whether breast lift surgery is for them. It is important that women considering breast lift surgery be of strong physical and mental health as a breast lift is an invasive procedure. As such, the recovery process can be both mentally and physically trying.
