How can one regain the perkier breast profile from youth?
If you often gaze into the mirror and long for the perky and beautifully contoured breasts of your youth, you are not alone. The skin’s natural elasticity diminishes with age, and this, combined with gravity, causes your breasts to sag. Add pregnancies, nursing, and significant weight fluctuations to the mix, and you have every reason to expect your breasts to lose their shape and firmness.
In spite of that, you don’t have to settle for a less-than-ideal appearance. A breast lift in Atlanta at our plastic surgery center can help restore your breasts to the perkier appearance of your youth.
What are some benefits of a breast lift?
Benefits may include…
- Relief from mild to severe breast ptosis
- A more flattering nipple position
- Long-lasting results
- A more youthful appearance to the breasts overall
- Improved self-confidence in one’s image
- A better fit in swimwear, lingerie and tight-fitting clothing
- A natural-looking outcome
What determines candidacy for a breast lift?
Any woman, regardless of age, who is struggling with sagging, drooping breasts may benefit from our breast lift in Alpharetta. Only a private consultation with Dr. Klein will be able to give you a definitive answer whether this procedure is right for you. In general, the doctor suggests that patients adhere to the following guidelines.
- They are in good health, both physically and psychologically
- They are free from any major medical conditions that might interfere with treatment
- They are non-smokers
- They are realistic in their expectations for their results
Will my breast lift come with implants?
For some patients, we combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation to increase breast size and enhance the shape of the breasts. Combining these procedures can also increase firmness. A combination breast lift-breast augmentation procedure is particularly popular among Greater Atlanta women whose breasts have lost volume and have begun to sag because of childbearing and breastfeeding.
Whether a combination procedure is right for you will be discussed during your consultation. We’ll spend ample time with you to help you determine which treatment plan will provide you with the best results, based on your goals, expectations, and desired look.

What kind of incisions will I need?
Your breast lift will consist of an incision made in one of three locations, depending on the plan of care that we jointly determine is best for you.
- Around your areola
- Around your areola and downward
- Around your areola, downward, and along the crease beneath your breast
Regardless of the location chosen, we will be able to improve the contour and firmness of your breasts by reshaping the underlying tissue and trimming away excess skin.
Once your procedure is complete, we will provide you with a surgical bra or bandage to help with healing and to minimize swelling. You will be provided with more detailed care instructions at the time of your surgery. Breast lifts are performed as outpatient procedures under general anesthesia.
What can I expect from my surgery?
Our breast lift procedures are performed on an outpatient basis using general or local anesthesia. Most surgeries are completed in two to three hours, and you will be put under general anesthetic during the procedure. In some cases, where little skin needs to be removed, the breast lift procedure can be performed with a local anesthetic and a sedative.
