Reasons for Breast Lift Surgery
Choosing to have a breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a personal decision. You will have a consultation with our doctors to review your medical history, see breast lift before and after photos, and discuss your goals.
There are a number of factors that cause the breasts to sag and lose firmness, including:
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Significant fluctuations in weight
- Age and family history
If you have had negative changes to your areola because of changes to your breast, this can also be corrected during a mastopexy.
About Breast Lift Surgery
Mastopexy should be performed by an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon. Our doctors have over 20 years experience working with breast augmentation procedures including breast lift surgeries. They are skilled physicians with artistic touches to deliver their patients the best results possible.
Breast lift surgery is performed under anesthesia in an operatory setting. An incision on the breast will be made. The size and location of the incision will be determined by the size and shape of your breast as well as your desired results. Care will be taken to ensure the incision can be concealed beneath undergarments and bathing suits.
The breast tissue will be lifted and reshaped to improve the contour and firmness of the breast. The nipple may be repositioned and if necessary, the size of the areola can be reduced. Excess skin will be removed and the incision will be closed.
