Sarasota Style is our Altiora term for the way the ladies of Sarasota bring their special focus to health, beauty, and fashion in our unique locale. We coined this phrase about two years ago. Read on to see what we mean.

Sarasota Style:  Encouraging a Healthy Silhouette

Sarasota 2021 Style: As Age, You Might Notice Drooping in Your Bustline. You don't need to tolerate it.
Have you become aware of a sag in your Bustline? Breast Lift could revive your fine figure.

Part of our Sarasota Style focus is to meet the needs of our outdoorsy style, and activities like swimming, tennis, and carpooling our children to many different activities and events.  Our definition of Sarasota Style has always included four basic areas:

  • For our skin, Sarasota Style  means plenty of sunscreen. All over face and body.
  • Our faces crave, fillers, Botox and lifts that must look natural.
  • And for our bodies, that often means maintaining ageless tone and beauty.

Put those three characteristics together and you have the Sarasota  2021 lifestyle for health, timeless age and beauty.

Your Active Life and Sarasota Style

And thus, many of us mandate exercise, from age 17 to 78 mandate ourselves with good diet, and active schedules. So what is our fourth characteristic secret, you might ask?

  • The fourth characteristic is we keep our timeless beauty and energy flowing with a little help from a board-certified plastic surgeon, like our own Dr. Orlando Ciciloni.   His surgical procedures and non-invasive therapies refresh, rejuvenate and renew our Sarasota 2021 Style.

After all, this climate and locale requires us to keep fit for the sunshine activities we love. And that is why, in this blog, we now spotlight one of our most requested cosmetic procedures, the breast lift.

Hard Facts about the Breast Lifts

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that the number of breast lift procedures has grown 65 per cent in popularity since 2000.  In the year 2,000, plastic surgeons did 52,836 breast lifts, according to the latest statistics.  Then, despite the pandemic, doctors created 87,051 better busts with breast lifts in 2020. As an example of the growing trend, plastic surgeons did 110,280 of these procedures in 2019. To put it briefly, with this procedure you can turn back time and defy gravity to a certain extent.

Aging Gracefully in Sarasota Style

Sarasota 2021 Style: Control Your Self Perception The Way You Desire.
On the Beach or On the Job, You Never Have to Let Them See You Sag When You Have Opted For a Breast Lift.

No matter how much you diet and exercise, aging will still cause  breasts to begin to sag.

1.  The Bad News:  Natural Sag

The sagging of breasts as they age is totally normal and a natural part of aging.  This is true for everyone whether they have the Sarasota 2021 Style in mind or not.

2.  About Aging and the Fashion Figure

It’s also why that cute fall cocktail dress you got 2 years ago still fits.  However, it fits in an entirely different way. You simply do not look as “perky” as you did previously. Suddenly, you realize your Sarasota Style silhouette is not quite up to your standards. “As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag.”

3.  Good News:  The Breast Lift Procedure

“A breast lift is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts–at least, for a time.”

 The Breast Lift or Mastopexy:  Is It Right for You?

Plastic Surgeons have designed this procedure, also called mastopexy, to counteract sagging caused by several forces of nature:

1.   Got Milk?

Obviously, pregnancy and nursing childbearing will change the shape of the bosom. However, that change need not last forever. Still, we “caution” you to understand this fact.  If “your breasts are small or they have lost volume” (after pregnancy for example), “breast implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both their firmness and their size.” Depending on your individual interpretation of Sarasota 2021 Style, you might or might not take this option. Read on to discover more about your goals and your options

2.   Got Birthdays?

We cannot fight the force of gravity against our  physique forever.  However, the rejuvenating process of the breast lift can certainly delay the effects of gravity and several decades of age. Therefore, we counsel our patients to keep in mind that no surgery can ever permanently repel the effects of gravity.

 More Forces of Nature Leveraged Against the Bustline

 3.   Got Diets?

Have you been yo-yo dieting over the years? Several medium or large gains or losses can contribute to a sagging bustline.  Our diets determine much about the shapes of our bodies. However, a breast lift helps re-sculpt and tighten the skin around the breasts. Additionally, after you achieve your weight goals, and get your Sarasota 2021 Style Breast Lift, then the secret to maintaining your look  pivots on your healthy diet and active lifestyle. However, remember no number of procedures can fight gravity forever.

Details Behind Bustline Beauty:  The Breast Lift Procedure

Know What a Breast-Lift Won’t Do. It Is Not a Volume Enhancing Procedure. Simply put, the breast lift is the surgical way to relocate breasts into to a higher, more youthful position. Let’s look at three important points.


When you see the “sag,” your looking at the result of overstretched skin. “The breast lift surgery removes the excess skin and tightens underlying breast tissue.” Consequently, the breast is supported in a higher, more youthful position.”


Your surgeon will remove or tighten excess skin. Then, he will rejuvenate the appearance of that most feminine of characteristics, your breast. Although he accomplishes these goals, he does not address the issue of volume.


An interesting detail concerning this special procedure is that some women dislike the natural enlargement of their areolae. Of course, this happens because of stretching and sagging. Now, a breast lift will reduce the size of these pigmented areas around the nipples. Certainly, this is an intimate aesthetic fact that delights most of our breast lift patients.

Know the Facts about Volume: What a Breast Lift Won’t Do

Please understand that breast lift surgery is not meant change the size of your breasts.  However, it will give a uplifted, more youthful or athletic appearance.


Fuller breasts can only be achieved with breast augmentation surgery. If you want a more lifted, youthful, “perky,” silhouette with less sagging or slippage, this procedure is a great choice.


In all honesty, this procedure is not meant to either increase or decrease the actual size of your breast. It will not plump up the upper part of your breasts.

Breast Truth:  Will Your Sarasota 2021 Sarasota Style Goals Demand a Combo Procedure?

  • However, if you wish to increase the size of your breasts, then a breast augmentation sometimes combines well with this surgery.
  • Likewise, the breast lift combines well with breast reduction surgery if you desire smaller breasts.
