Many women in Louisiana consider a breast lift procedure to restore a more youthful form and shape. It's no secret that gravity, not to mention pregnancy and weight fluctuations, can take a toll on a woman's breast appearance. Thankfully, breast lift surgery can step in to reverse a sagging look.
Breast lifts elevate the breasts while creating a more flattering breast contour. To learn more about this procedure, request a consultation at The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery or call our office at (318) 562-1433. Conveniently located in Shreveport, we serve patients from Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas, and offer a complete array of cosmetic surgery and skin care treatments through Jade MediSpa.
Breast lift patients often fall into two main groups: mothers who don't like the look of their breasts after childbirth and breastfeeding, and women in their 40s or 50s who feel gravity has caused their breasts to sag. A breast lift addresses breast position and shape but will not enhance breast volume - for that, a woman may need to consider breast augmentation using an adjustable gel breast implant in Louisiana. Breast lift also will not substantially decrease breast volume, and many women find they need a breast reduction to achieve both their ideal breast size and position.
This is a nice example of how dramatically someone's skin can tighten up after SAFE Liposuction if their skin quality is good.

I’m always getting asked about my techniques- here ya go: This patient came to see me with huge, low, wide, loose breasts without any upper breast fullness. She actually had very pretty breasts in the past, but childbearing, weight changes, and time, caused them to drop and sag. Breasts like these are traditionally thought of as difficult to lift and manage, and definitely difficult to achieve legitimate upper breast fullness in. The vast majority of plastic surgeons in the U.S. use a very old (inferior pedicle) technique that results in huge (anchor) scars, a boxy appearance, and worst of all, still keeps the breasts low on the chest. Unfortunately, even the best surgeons are hamstrung by their choice of this technique. That operation never made a lot of sense to me so I abandoned it over 18 years ago, in favor of a far superior (pun intended) short scar technique that allows me to create high, full, rounded, beautiful breasts that have 70% shorter scars, have much better healing, and hold up much better over time. Why don’t all surgeons use this technique? It has a very steep learning curve, is difficult to teach, requires a high degree of precision, and until SAFELipo and Breast Tissue Equalization were developed, it was difficult to manage the bottom skin of the breast perfectly. Nowadays, it’s hard to justify performing a “lift” on a patient that results in breasts that are still low and sagging, yet we see it around here every day... Hopefully not from any of our own patients!
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
During your consultation, you should discuss your medical history in detail with your surgeon and tell us more about what you hope to accomplish through surgery. In some cases, your surgeon may recommend a short-scar breast lift with implants in order to achieve the results you want.
A breast lift is usually performed under general anesthesia. We use the short scar breast lift technique exclusively (also called the vertical or lollipop lift), where the incision is made around the areola and then straight down to the breast crease. This technique, which requires an especially skilled surgeon, elimates the scar that runs along the breast crease and provides a more enhanced breast shape over the traditional anchor-shaped incision.
Most women are pleased with the results of their breast lift from The Wall Center. The procedure lifts the breasts higher on the chest, even without the support of a bra, in a very natural-looking way.
