Pregnancy, weight loss, and the natural aging process can lead to stretched, sagging skin, a lack of shape, or a "deflated" appearance. If you aren't happy with the way your breasts look or feel, breast lift surgery with Dr. Thors may be a great option to restore a firmer, perkier breast contour that improves your proportions and lifts your self-confidence.
Breast lift surgery with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gunnar Thors can enhance your natural beauty and restore the youthful, confident appearance you desire. A breast lift can raise and reshape the profile of breasts that are sagging or have lost their fullness or tone, helping you to regain your figure after pregnancy or weight loss, or enjoy firmer, perkier breasts for perhaps the first time in your life.
A breast lift improves breast contours by removing excess skin and reshaping the remaining tissue. If you are bothered by sagging breast tissue, nipples that droop downward, or a loss of firmness, a breast lift can help you get perkier, more lifted breasts that better flatter your figure.

Breast lift surgery alone does not enlarge the breasts. If you want large, lifted breasts, Dr. Thors can combine a breast lift with breast augmentation.

If you have uncomfortably large breasts, and you are considering breast reduction surgery, Dr. Thors will perform a breast lift at the same time to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing breast shape possible.
Dr. Thors will determine the appropriate breast lift incision type for your needs based on the amount of tissue that needs to be removed. All breast lift incisions result in scars that can be easily concealed beneath a bra or swimsuit. Incision types Dr. Thors may use include:
