If your breasts have lost volume after pregnancy or weight loss or as a result of the natural aging process, you may be disappointed by a frustratingly flat, droopy look. Dr. Holley helps Kalamazoo and Battle Creek, Michigan women like you reverse these negative characteristics by lifting and reshaping the breast mound and creating a younger, more “perky” look that enhances your appearance and self-confidence.

Our plastic surgery patients trust the high-quality results and compassionate, understanding approach of Dr. Scott Holley and the West Michigan Plastic Surgery Team.
Dr. Holley understands that each breast lift patient has different goals and deserves to be treated as a unique individual with a valuable perspective. In your consultation at West Michigan Plastic Surgery, you will meet with your surgeon, personally, to explore goals for your breast lift and learn more about whether this surgery would be an effective option for you. Many women who have lost volume, in addition to having sagging breast tissue, choose to combine a breast lift with breast augmentation–often visiting from Kalamazoo, MI and across the southwestern portion of the state. This combination procedure can give them a fully transformed, more attractive breast appearance.
Dr. Scott Holley takes the time to craft each procedure according to the patient’s needs. During your consultation, he is happy to explain the different approaches and help you select a surgical plan tailored to your desired outcome. While all of our breast lift patients want to restore a more natural, attractive, and comfortable shape to their breasts, some have additional concerns such as disproportionate breast volume or severely downward-pointing nipples,
which your surgeon can address in more detail. Many women who visit us for liposuction can safely combine it with a breast lift for a more comprehensive improvement. Our breast lift photo gallery helps you see the kind of results that are possible.
At West Michigan Plastic Surgery, we offer three basic approaches to breast lift surgery:
Circumareolar: Also referred to as a donut or a Benelli mastopexy, this approach corrects mild breast sagging for women with smaller breasts by removing excess tissue and skin through a circular incision around the areola.
Lollipop: Using this technique, the surgeon corrects moderately sagging breasts by removing excess breast skin through an incision that encircles the areola and runs vertically toward the breast crease. He then repositions the nipple and areola on the breast mound.
Anchor: For breasts that sag severely, this approach allows the surgeon to remove excess skin and fat by means of an incision around the areola, below the breast, and along the breast crease.
Before your procedure, Dr. Holley and our helpful, friendly staff will make sure you understand what to expect from your procedure and how to plan for a healthy recovery. After your surgery, you will have follow-up meetings to ensure that you are recovering comfortably.
Patients can expect to resume normal activities within a week and strenuous activities within a month. Scars should flatten and fade over the next several months.
