Breast Lift Minneapolis

Breast-Lift-thumbIn an effort to turn back the clock, many women in St. Paul – Minneapolis are seeking consultations with Dr. Hoffman for breast lifts in an effort to get their youthful appearance back. A breast lift is a surgical procedure that can help achieve a younger breast profile by removing any excess skin in the breasts and repositions it to get a higher breast projection.

Breast Lift Candidates

The loosening and sagging of your breast tissues is a natural effect of aging and Dr. James A. Hoffman can easily reverse this through a breast lift. Other factors like pregnancy, breast feeding, and weight fluctuations may result to the sagging of your breasts. Sadly, no amount of exercise or diet can help remove the excess skin to achieve a more youthful breast contour. Patients in St. Paul, Minneapolis have the ability to visit Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Hoffman, who specializes in breast lifts and will be able to provide the perfect breast contour that you have been wishing for in just one procedure.

Breast Lift with Breast Augmentation

For women with smaller breasts and minimal sag, an augmentation procedure may be all that is necessary. By adding fullness and volume to the breast, the skin is filled out making the breast appear fuller and more youthful. Breast augmentation does not truly lift the breast. The biggest advantage of breast augmentation is that it avoids a visible scar.See Breast Enlargement

Periareolar Breast Lift With Implants

For women with intermediate ptosis (sag), where the nipple is still above the inframammary fold (the fold where the breast meets the chest), a nice option is the periareolar breast lift combined with implants. The major advantage of this procedure is that the scar is well hidden at the junction of the areola and breast skin. It avoids the vertical and inframammary fold scars seen in a typical breast lift.

In the past, the main disadvantage of this technique was the tendency for the areola to enlarge with time. Recent modifications in the technique, which I learned from Larry Schlesinger, M.D., Maui, Hawaii, have solved this problem. The use of a Gore-Tex suture avoids the tendency for the areola to enlarge.

Your Breast Lift will be performed in Dr. Hoffman’s surgery center located in Woodbury, MN, just outside of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
