After pregnancy and nursing, the breasts not only lose their rounded, feminine shape, but they also begin to sag with the nipples hanging down over the breast crease. Aging and weight loss may also contribute to a significant shift in the breast profile. While completely natural, these cosmetic changes can be distressing and can limit wardrobe choices.

Luckily, cosmetic surgery offers an excellent solution for patients looking to contour their figures post-pregnancy. While many women are eager to pursue breast augmentation with implants, there are some that desire a more natural approach using only their own tissue. An auto-augmentation breast lift can not only elevate drooping breasts but can also replenish lost volume.

What is an auto-augmentation breast lift?

For patients who wish to combat breast ptosis without sacrificing breast size and without turning to breast implants, the auto-augmentation breast lift procedure is an excellent option. The procedure uses the woman’s excess breast tissue to reshape, enhance, and refine the breast mounds, resulting in a subtle increase in volume.

Auto-augmentation breast lift surgery requires a plastic surgeon with extensive expertise in this unique procedure. An experienced surgeon will be able to assess the breast tissue during a private consultation and determine if an auto-augmentation breast lift is viable. Dr. Rand recently published an article on the topic in the World's Best Plastic Surgery Journal and is able to apply his artistry and skill to achieve the natural breast augmentation with breast lift results image-conscious clients seek.

How is auto-augmentation breast lift surgery performed?

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia or light sleep sedation on an outpatient basis and takes roughly 2-4 hours to perform. Surgery typically begins with a lollipop incision encircling the areola and running down to the breast crease. A T-shaped, or anchor incision is also a possibility. The tissue in the lower part of the breast is prepared, as this is the material that will take the place of an implant. With its blood supply intact, the tissue is repositioned in the upper breast pole and is attached to the chest wall.

The surgeon then completes the breast lift portion of the surgery, relocating the areola complex to a more youthful, pleasing position. Excess skin is removed, and the incisions are closed with sutures.

What are the benefits?

  • Uses the patient’s own tissue to enhance the breast mounds
  • Minimizes complications and risks
  • Elevates sagging breasts while amplifying breast volume
  • Natural-looking, elegant results
  • Long-lasting outcome
  • Enhanced self-image
