Breast Lift

Procedure:
Raise and reshape sagging breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning remaining tissue and nipples.

Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, and the force of gravity take their toll on a woman's breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. Breastlift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts--at least, for a time. (No surgery can permanently delay the effects of gravity.) Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small or have lost volume -- for example, after pregnancy--breast implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both their firmness and their size.

One shortcoming of mastopexy alone is that it will not reliably restore fullness to the upper part of the breast. Fortunately, the addition of even a modest-sized breast implant to a breast lift will often achieve this, however. When the correct size implant is chosen to use with your breast lift, this can significantly increase the chance that you will achieve the breast shape that you desire. We routinely perform breast augmentation with lifting in one operation, and we will be happy to discuss options for changing your breast shape to help you achieve your goals.
