Breast Lift Surgery or Mastoplexy
Do you have sagging breasts or are you unhappy with their shape? A breast lift may be your answer….
Patients who are happy with the volume of the breasts but not the shape may benefit from a breast lift.
Is a Breast Lift Right for You?
If you have sagging breasts and a loss of fullness – particularly in the top part of your breasts – you are most likely an excellent candidate for a breast lift. Many women opt for this procedure alone, particularly those patients with firm skin and minimal sagging.
The Breast Lift Procedure
Several surgical techniques are used during a breast lift. What the surgeon chooses depends upon the degree of correction required to restore the breasts to their former placement above the rib cage.
Each technique involves reshaping and lifting breast tissue by removing excess skin from around the nipple or from the bottom of the breast. Sometimes the areola is repositioned for a more pleasing appearance.
Why have a breast lift?
Breast lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to:
- reshape sagging breasts and improve contour
- increase firmness by removing excess skin
- increase the volume of breasts in combination with breast augmentation
- raise the position of downward pointing nipples
- reduce the size of the areolas
