Breast lift, or mastopexy, is one of the most popular procedures that I perform. The procedure lifts and reshapes the breasts to give them a more lifted, natural, and youthful appearance. The procedure is oftentimes combined with a breast augmentation to not only lift the breasts but also to enhance them or restore volume that they may have lost over time.
Throughout a woman’s lifetime, her breasts can change. Some of these changes can include decreased volume, loss of firmness and shape, stretching out of the areolas, and sagging of the nipple. These changes can occur for many reasons including pregnancies, weight gain or weight loss, or simply as a result of aging. A breast lift procedure can correct all of these issues and restore a more youthful, uplifted, and natural appearance to the breasts.
The scars from the breast lift procedure can be quite small and heal very well. The recovery from the procedure is very quick and patients are often back to their normal activities within a very short time. Patients in our practice find the breast lift procedure to be extremely rewarding because it not only lifts the breasts, but it also reshapes the breasts, restores symmetry to the breasts and the areolas, and gives the breasts a more youthful and natural appearance. Any volume lost over time can be restored when the breast lift procedure is combined with an augmentation (eg, breast implant). With all of the benefits from this one procedure, it is no wonder that breast lift surgery is one of the most popular procedures in our practice.
