Commonly referred to as a breast lift, mastopexy surgery raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast shape. Breast lift surgery is a highly individualized procedure. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is youthful and uplifted.
A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can be caused by: pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, aging, gravity, and heredity. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well.
A breast lift is a good option for you if: you are physically healthy, maintain a stable weight, and have realistic expectations. If you are bothered by the feeling that your breasts sag, your breasts have lost shape and volume, have a flatter/elongated shape or are pendulous, your nipples and areolas point downward, you have stretched skin and enlarged areolas, one breast is lower than the other, or when unsupported, your nipples fall below the breast crease; mastopexy may be right for you.
