Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after breast lift surgeons in Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Wellington and Jupiter. His attention to detail and methodical technique create beautiful and natural results. A breast lift allows woman to enjoy perkier and more youthful breasts. A droopy breast results from a combination of factors; most common causes include weakened or stretched skin, replacement of gland tissue for fatty tissue, and fluctuations in breast size that reduce the volume of the breast. Breast lift surgery corrects droopy breasts by tightening the skin of the breast, repositioning of the gland tissue, and in some cases increasing breast volume by placement of an implant. Dr. Rueda uses a combination of all these techniques to give his patients a younger and fuller breast.


All types of breast lift surgery correct a droopy appearance by tightening the skin, increasing breast size with implants, repositioning the breast gland, or a combination of all the above. The more droopy the breast looks, the more likely it has excess skin and therefore needs larger incisions to correct its appearance. On the other hand, breasts that are not very droopy can be corrected by placement of an implant and a small hidden incision.

Dr. Rueda performs four types of breast lift techniques: Nipple lift, implant lift, lollipop lift, full breast lift. A lollipop lift is also known as a vertical mastopexy. A full breast lift is also known as a wise-pattern mastopexy. Their differences are highlighted below:

Minimize your Incisions

Patients who need breast lift frequently have excess skin that needs to be removed to tighten the breast. Dr. Rueda specializes on techniques that minimize the amount of incisions that need to be placed in the breast. However, its worth noting every patient is not an ideal candidate for these techniques and the decision needs to be tailored to every patient.

Durable Results

Although tightening the breast skin is an important step in breast lift surgery, relying on this tightening only can lead to recurrence of droop breasts very early. Dr. Rueda specializes on techniques that contour and mold the large breast prior to skin tightening. In this methods the result does not rely on skin that can easily stretch but rather on the internal breast tissue, therefore, leading to longer lasting results.
