Breast sagging (ptosis) is an issue we are often called upon to resolve at the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston. Many women feel less confident when their breasts sag, appear deflated, or have fallen lower on the chest. These changes can have a profound effect on self-esteem, and can disrupt the overall harmony of a woman’s body. Women often realize that clothing doesn’t fit well and bras don’t do enough to accentuate their breasts.

Top breast lift surgeons in Houston: Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center

Fortunately, triple board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann is available to help you restore your breasts. He is among the most acclaimed breast surgeons practicing in the Houston area, and is triple board-certified – an accomplishment few plastic surgeons can claim. 

Along with the added skill of his son, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, a board-eligible plastic surgeon who is fellowship-trained and who has an exceptional talent for the art of breast surgery, your breasts can look youthful, perky, and will sit higher on the chest wall. The nipple structure may be moved to be centered on the reshaped, lifted breast mound.

What can a breast lift do for me?

A breast lift procedure can raise sagging breast tissue, restoring the sense of lift, vitality, and youth that your breasts possessed before aging, gravity, breastfeeding, or weight changes took a toll. In your initial consultation at our Houston plastic surgery office, Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann will carefully evaluate the degree of breast sagging (ptosis). They will discuss various breast surgery options with you and help you decide if a breast lift procedure is right for you.

Who is a candidate for a breast lift in Houston?

If you are unhappy with the way age, genetics, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or other factors have impacted the perkiness of your breasts, you may be an ideal breast lift candidate. We encourage you to call us at (281) 819-1764 to schedule a consultation and find out. During this consultation, Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann will listen to your concerns, evaluate your problem areas, and discuss candidacy requirements.

A good candidate for breast lift surgery is:

  • In generally good health
  • Prepared for a surgical procedure and recovery period
  • Prepared to follow pre- and post-operative instructions closely

Your plans for a future pregnancy will be discussed in your private consultation. Having children impacts breast tissue significantly and can undo the changes made with breast lift surgery. To avoid this, Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann may recommend you wait until you are satisfied with the size of your family before undergoing breast lift as part of a more comprehensive mommy makeover procedure. However, as with all aspects of your physical transformation, the decision will be based on your needs and desires.

Breast lift incision options

Breast lift surgery might be an option if you’re satisfied with the size of your breasts but simply want to achieve a higher, more lifted appearance.

There are four primary breast lift incision options offered by our Houston triple board-certified plastic surgeon and our fellowship-trained, board-eligible plastic surgeon to accomplish a perkier and more appealing look. The incision options are as follows

Crescent

The incision is in the shape of a crescent moon at the top of the nipple, an appropriate technique when nipple placement is of concern, but only a small amount of sagging exists.

Circumareolar

Also known as a Benelli incision, this breast lift incision is made around the nipple and is best for mild ptosis (sagging).

Lollipop

Also called a vertical scar mastopexy, this incision goes around the nipple and extends vertically to the breast crease. The lollipop breast lift incision is often the most effective for moderate cases of breast sagging (ptosis).

Anchor 

For more extreme cases of breast sagging, an anchor incision may be best. This option expands on the lollipop option to include an additional incision along the breast crease.

Each breast lift incision offers unique benefits, making each approach best suited for specific aesthetic problems. During your breast lift consultation at Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we will determine which surgical technique is ideally suited to produce the look you most desire.

Breast lift with implants in Houston

We often talk about choosing between a breast lift and a breast augmentation, but what’s the difference? In short, breast augmentation uses implants to enlarge your breasts, while a breast lift will raise and reshape rather than increase size. There are occasions where both the size and lack of lift are an issue. In these circumstances, Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann may suggest you combine the procedures to achieve a dramatic improvement in the overall appearance of your breasts.

Lift or augmentation: What’s right for you?

A breast lift is usually a good option for women who are satisfied with the size, but not the shape, of their breasts. In contrast, breast augmentation is generally appropriate if you are concerned about your breast size rather than with sagging. Breast augmentation is done with FDA-approved saline or silicone breast implants to enhance the size, symmetry, and profile of your breasts.

If you’re concerned with both sagging and size, combining procedures is likely your best option. This combination can resolve significant self-confidence issues by lifting your breasts and enhancing their size. It’s also an excellent option if you’re concerned about breast sagging in addition to symmetry, projection, cleavage, and other issues addressed through augmentation.

What is the procedure for a breast lift with augmentation?

With this option, our plastic surgeon will lift your breasts by making a series of small incisions, remove excess skin, lift the underlying breast tissue, and place implants (either saline or silicone) beneath the newly elevated breast tissue. The end result will be fuller, larger, and higher breasts, helping you achieve the body shape and figure you have long desired.
