Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
A breast lift is performed to elevate and restore a more youthful look and shape to the breast. With aging and gravity, breast tissue may lose elasticity and begin to sag. Breasts may also droop with pregnancy as well as weight loss. Often the nipple can drop to below the natural breast crease or point downward and it can be repositioned with this procedure.
If you are looking to lift the breast as well as increase breast volume, an augmentation can be performed at the same time. The type of approach and incision of the breast lift is individualized to each patient.
Factors such as skin quality, degree of breast ptosis, the desired final breast volume are important to consider which will be discussed in depth during preoperative consultation.
