What is a Breast Lift?
Lifting breasts and restoring youthful fullness is a common procedure because of changes that occur with aging and after pregnancy.
Breast shape is complex, but the breast skin surface area to breast gland volume relationship greatly influence breast appearance. If pregnancy, nursing, weight loss, and/or aging have deflated, loosened, or lowered your breasts to a sagging position, mastopexy (breast lift) elevates them higher on the chest and fills them to a naturally round shape. Implants can be added to increase size and fullness. Areola size and nipple size can be adjusted if desired. Inverted nipples may be everted.
Breast Lift (mastopexy: masto=breast, pexy=lift, stabilize) surgery lifts sagging breasts to a more youthful position, higher on your chest. The procedure rounds and re-shapes your breast for more fullness and projection. Some women believe they naturally have “floppy” or “sagging” breasts, but most experience this change after nursing children and/or losing weight. If you want breasts that look like they do in your bra, but you don’t want to have to wear a bra, then breast lift may be for you. Breast lift is a well established common procedure, is safe, and offers consistently good results. If your breasts have settled down over the bottom of your ribs and are widening your waist, they may be creating a heavy appearance. Breast lift may be particularly beneficial not only for position of your breasts, but also by restoring your feminine “hourglass” shape.
