Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Breasts tend to droop as we age, thanks to gravity, childbirth, breastfeeding, or simply changes in weight over time. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to raise and reshape breasts that have sagged over time due to these conditions. The procedure raises the nipples to a more aesthetically pleasing level and effectively reshapes the breasts.
How is the Breast Lift or Mastopexy Performed?
Simply put, a mastopexy procedure removes extra skin, reshapes and elevates the breast mound, and places the nipple in a more aesthetically appealing position. Scars from the procedure can be around the areola-nipple complex, vertically down from the nipple, along with the bottom of the breast, or a combination of the above. If loss of volume is part of your story, a breast implant can be placed at the same time to fully rejuvenate your breasts. Compared to many other breast surgeries, breast lifts are truly an artistic endeavor and your choice of surgeon is critical.
