At the practice of Dr. Derek Steinbacher, he sees many men and women from the Guilford, Connecticut, area who are considering cosmetic surgeries to improve their appearance. Many women who have lost significant weight and/or have had children and breastfed. These scenarios can lead to stretched or “extra” skin compared to the amount of remaining breast volume. The breasts fall and sag and these women may look for a way to address them. Dr. Derek Steinbacher can talk to you about how to fix sagging breasts by combining a breast lift and breast augmentation with implants. (or using your own fat – for fat grafting).
The breast lift procedure is designed to help lift the breasts higher on the chest. This is done when women experience volume loss in the breasts and often have stretched skin, causing the breasts to sag and, in some cases, the nipples to point downward. By removing excess skin from the breast, and tightening the skin, Dr. Derek Steinbacher can bring the breasts up higher and ensure proper position and projection. At the same time the areola may be made smaller and the position and projection of the nipples and areola improved.
Many women who undergo a breast lift consider breast augmentation as well. By bringing the breasts higher up on the chest, women might notice some deflating of the breasts caused by volume loss. To address this at the same time, Dr. Derek Steinbacher may recommend the placement of breast implants to restore volume and increase size if patients desire. This can not only fix sagging breasts but breasts that have lost their volume from weight fluctuations and breastfeeding. A small amount of volume is needed to create more cleavage.
Another option at times is to use the patient own fat to restore some volume. For fat grafting we liposuction other areas – belly or flanks, and that fat is redistributed into the lifted breasts.
