Pregnancy, weight loss, and weight gain can make breasts sag or droop and lose their ideal shape. A breast lift, also known as a Mastopexy, raises and reshapes sagging breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning the breast tissue and nipple higher on the chest. For women whose breasts have lost firmness and elasticity, it is an effective procedure that results in a lifted, more youthful contour. We can make a variety of different incisions depending on the look you prefer and the results you desire.
We’ve put together a list of the top 3 reasons to have a breast lift:
1) To restore a better breast shape after pregnancy and breastfeeding
Pregnancy can often cause breasts to stretch and sag. A breast lift, with or without implants, can help reverse these common changes and restore a more youthful contour to the breast.
2) To improve the breast contour after significant weight loss
Significant weight loss can leave breasts looking empty and low on the chest. By removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding breast tissue, a breast lift can help proportion and restore the breasts’ shape. In women who have lost substantial weight, a breast implant may be needed to restore lost volume.
3) To achieve a more youthful breast shape
As we age, our skin and tissues lose elasticity. This can cause breasts to sag, and the nipple to migrate downward. A breast lift can remove the excess skin and tissue to lift the breast, as well as move the nipple to a higher position.
Some of our patients have had drooping breasts since their teens. Breast lift surgery can help them get the breast shape and fullness they have always wanted.
Breast lifts are often combined with other breast enhancement procedures. A breast lift does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast. If you want larger, fuller breasts, consider having breast augmentation surgery at the same time as a breast lift. If you want smaller breasts, you might want to combine a breast lift and breast reduction surgery.
