Breast Lift Techniques

The only way to accomplish a breast lift is through surgery. Breast lift techniques involve removal of skin, placing an implant, or both. The breast lift almost always involves raising the nipple. It reduces the size of the areola, the darker skin around the nipple. In planning a breast lift one must identify how much excess skin needs to be removed, and how much volume, if any, needs to be removed or added.
