Breast Lift

Commonly known 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 contour. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a more youthful shape.

A breast lift is a great choice for women who desire to elevate the droopy (ptotic) breast. Ptotic breasts frequently occur because of:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Aging
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Heredity

Many women elect to receive breast implants (breast augmentation) at the same time as a breast lift to further enhance the size or shape of the breasts. A breast lift alone may not give you the look you ultimately desire. To learn more about how breast lift procedures work, watch this video.

A breast lift is a typically a good option if:

  • You are physically healthy and maintain a stable weight
  • You do not smoke
  • You have realistic expectations
  • You are doing the surgery for yourself, not anyone else

And, you have one or more of the following:

  • You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts sag, have lost shape and volume
  • Your breasts have a flatter, elongated shape or are pendulous
  • When unsupported, your nipples fall below the breast crease
  • Your nipples and areolas point downward
  • You have stretched skin and enlarged areolas
  • One breast is lower than the other
