Common Factors That Affect The Breast Line

The muscles and soft tissues of the breasts and chest are under constant strain. Some sources of stress are more obvious, such as the effects of breastfeeding on the nipple and areola. Other factors, such as sun damage to the skin, are more gradual, the effect increasing over time. Current health, family medical history, diet and exercise, and gravity are other common sources of physical distress, such as:

  • Repairing the shape and structure of stretched or enlarged nipples
  • Lifting and strengthening soft tissue and supporting muscles
  • Resizing and reshaping to optimize look, feel, symmetry, and function

Surgery can be a powerful restorative tool for a wide range of internal and external strain, imbalance, and damage. The benefits of each procedure can be significant. Our cosmetic surgeons take the time to explain the potential benefits of each type of treatment.

Breast Augmentation

This procedure involves the use of FDA-approved implants to enlarge and reshape the breast. Implants are either saline (sterile saltwater) or silicone based. The implant is placed behind either the breast tissue or the breast muscle. Our cosmetic surgeons can help you decide which type of implant may be more ideal for your specific needs and goals.

Breast Reduction

This procedure reduces breast size by removing excess tissue, such as fat cells and skin. It may also reduce pain and restore posture, both of which can be negatively affected by large or sagging breasts.

Breast Lift Procedures

Breast lift surgery, called mastopexy, can lift a sagging breast line by removing and tightening excess tissue. Breasts naturally lose elasticity over time—aging, pregnancy, breast feeding, weight fluctuation, and other factors can exacerbate loosening tissue. A breast life has many potential benefits, such as:

  • Increased support and a higher breast line
  • Restored balance and symmetry (when one breast hangs lower)
  • A reshaped, resized areola (often a result of breastfeeding)

Asymmetry Correction

As the body ages, the breast line may start to sage unevenly, resulting in an asymmetrical breast line. Asymmetry can affect how you look and feel and even how your clothes fit. Our surgeons use breast asymmetry correction surgery to restore balance and a mirrored appearance to your breasts. Your specific needs and cosmetic goals will determine which specific surgical techniques your surgeon uses.
