A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. As a woman ages, the skin loses elasticity causing the breasts to lose their natural shape and firmness. Breast sagging (also known as “ptosis”) worsens when the breasts are stretched due to weight gain or pregnancy (note: many women experience significant changes with a second pregnancy, especially if the baby is breastfed). Our providers have helped many breast lift patients restore their figures with the mastopexy procedure. In select cases, a breast lift patient may also benefit from breast implants.
Goals Of A Breast Lift:
- Elevate the breasts due to sagging caused by aging & gravity.
- Firm the breasts if they have lost substance after pregnancy.
- Re-align the nipples if they point down or to the side.
- Restore the natural suppleness after weight loss.
