The Best Breast Lift Surgery In Tampa: The Solomon Cosmetic Center
We understand that the effects of age and having children can cause breasts to appear deflated requiring push-up bras to give the appearance of upper chest fullness.
A breast lift surgery raises the nipple position and the position of the breast on the chest. It also improves upper chest fullness and the appearance in and out of clothes.
The scar is minimal, and if additional fullness is needed or desired, a silicone gel or saline breast implant can refine the look of the breast.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR BREAST LIFT SURGERY?
Breast lift surgery may be a good option for you if your breasts sag with stretched skin, have lost shape and volume due to pregnancy, age, or weight. Breast lift surgery may also be right for you if your nipples and areolas point downward, your nipples and areolas fall below the breast crease, or your breasts have a flat, elongated shape. Finally, breast lift surgery can address issues such as one breast being firmer, larger, or positioned differently. Ideal candidates are in good health and maintain a stable weight.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A BREAST LIFT PROCEDURE
While the technique of the breast lift procedure will vary due to the specific plan created for you by Dr. George Solomon, the incisions will be easily concealable by clothing. During the procedure, excess skin will be removed while the areola and nipple will be shifted to a higher position. Areolas that have been stretched over time can be reduced in size. Typically, the areola and nipple are left connected to the underlying tissue, leaving the milk glands unaffected and allowing for breastfeeding. To restore fullness, any excess tissue previously located above the areola can be used to reshape the breast.
During a breast lift procedure, Dr. Solomon makes an incision around the areola, the dark-pigmented area around the nipple, down to the crease of the breast. Excess skin is removed. Dr. Solomon then tightens the remaining skin and reshapes the breasts, relocating the nipples to a higher position. Breasts will then be much smoother and more youthful in appearance.

What Happens During A Breast Lift Surgery?
The cosmetic surgery in Tampa for a breast lift procedure varies depending on your specific needs. Dr. George Solomon creates a specific treatment plan for each patient. He will use incisions that are easily concealable by clothing.
During the Tampa breast lift, excess skin will be removed while the areola and nipple will be shifted to a higher position. Areolas that have been stretched over time can be reduced in size. Typically, the areola and nipple are left connected to the underlying tissue, leaving the milk glands unaffected and allowing for breastfeeding. To restore fullness, any excess tissue previously located above the areola can be used to reshape the breast.
Different Types of Breast Lift Surgeries in Tampa
The Wise Pattern or “Anchor” Lift: Cosmetic Surgery In Tampa To Correct Extensive Sagging and Reshaping the Breast
The wise pattern breast lift is the most common lift that Dr. Solomon does. When a patient has extensive sagging a wise pattern lift tends to give the best long-term results.
This lift allows Dr. Solomon to remove excess skin and sagging tissue giving you a higher nipple and perkier breast.
This breast lift technique involves 3 incisions: one around the edge of the areola, an incision vertically from the bottom of the areola to the breast crease, and one along the inframammary fold, hidden in the breast crease.
These incisions allow Dr. Solomon to reduce the nipple, and crease length while raising the nipple and narrowing the breast. Don’t freak out, with proper aftercare, scars fade quite nicely over time.
Vertical or “Lollipop” Breast Lift: Corrects Moderate Sagging
The vertical lollipop cosmetic surgery in Tampa is a breast lift technique that’s very similar to a wise pattern lift but does not have the incision at the crease of the breast.
A lollipop breast lift involves 2 incisions: one around the edge of the areola, and one running vertically from the bottom of the areola to the inframammary fold, creating a “lollipop” shape. This lift is good for patients who do not have a lot of extra skin from nipple to crease.
Periareolar or “Donut” Breast Lift: Corrects Mild Sagging
Patients who are experiencing mild sagging can greatly benefit from cosmetic surgery in Tampa through the Periareolar or Donut breast lift.
The incision for this breast lift runs around the edge of the areola, and like the crescent lift, it is commonly performed in conjunction with breast augmentation. This lift is not right for women who have more extreme sagging or large areolas.
Crescent Tampa Breast Lift: For The Smallest Lift/ Minimal scarring
Dr. Solomon performs a crescent breast lift on patients who are getting breast augmentation and have nipples that are just a little low.
This breast lift involves a small incision running halfway around the top half of the areola along the edge.
Dr. Solomon then removes a small crescent-shaped piece of skin above the areola to bring the nipple/areola up about 2-3 centimeters. A unilateral crescent breast lift is very common when a patient has one nipple that is a little lower than the other. A crescent lift can be done at the same time as a breast augmentation or at a later date as an in-office procedure.
Breast Lift Surgery After Care and Treatment
After cosmetic surgery in Tampa, you are likely to experience swelling, discoloration, and tightness around the treated areas. You may also experience numbness in the nipple and areola areas.
Surgical drains inserted during the Tampa breast lift procedure will be removed a few days after the cosmetic surgery in Tampa. You will need to wear a special support bra for a few weeks after the surgery and sleep on your back.
Most patients return to work within a week and can resume normal activities including light exercise after several weeks.
Aside from a large shift in weight or pregnancy, the results of your procedure should remain stable. However, the natural aging process will continue to change the shape and size of your breasts over time.
Dr. Solomon and the entire Solomon Cosmetic Center staff in Tampa can help as you recover from your Tampa breast lift procedure quickly.

I recently made the decision to have a Mastopexy, or breast lift. I put the decision off a long time due to my skin complexion and scarring. My skin is SUPER sensitive to everything and I just knew the scars would be horrible. Due to losing slightly over 20 lbs., it became apparent that I needed to have this procedure more than I was concerned about the scarring. I am post surgery 2 weeks, and am truly amazed at my results. The scarring is not what I thought it was going to be. Dr Solomon was able to lift my breast 5″ from where they were! He took time and care when it came to my worries of the scarring and having sensitive skin. My worries related to any issues I had were gone, and I was comfortable. I took the local anesthetic option, was given a light sedative to relax me and felt no pain during the procedure. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr Solomon and his staff to anyone wanting/needing to undergo a cosmetic procedure. He and his staff take pride and joy in making your decision the BEST decision!
