Is a Breast Lift procedure right for you?

Mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, is a surgical procedure that lifts the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. This procedure may also include re-positioning the nipple higher on the chest. In 2014, mastopexy was the third most popular cosmetic surgical procedure with approximately ninety-two thousand procedures in the United States according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Women’s breasts can change over time for many reasons including: pregnancy, breastfeeding, fluctuations in weight, aging, gravity, and heredity. A breast lift can correct sagging or uneven breasts and restore a more youthful shape and firmness. A breast lift can be done in combination with a breast augmentation in order to increase fullness or a breast reduction for smaller breasts.

Are you a good candidate for a breast lift? A breast lift may be right for you if you are dissatisfied with your sagging or uneven breasts. You must be in good health and maintain a stable weight. Another reason you may want to consider a breast lift is if your nipples fall below your breast crease or point downwards.

What happens during a breast lift surgical procedure? There are a variety of techniques and incision patterns for a breast lift procedure. The type that is right for you will depend on your breast size, shape, position of your areolas, degree of sagging, and skin elasticity. Incisions can be made around the areola, around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease, or around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease and horizontally across the breast crease. After the incisions are made, the surgeon may reshape the breast tissue to improve the breast contour, re-position the areola, and/or remove excess skin. Incision lines are permanent but will fade over time.
