Mastopexy, more commonly referred to as a Breast Lift, is a procedure to lift the breasts by removing excess, sagging skin. This lift helps to restore youth and even firmness to the breasts. With age and particularly after life experiences such as pregnancy and nursing or changes in weight, the breasts can begin to sag and can even lose mass. If you are unhappy with the current state of your breasts, you may be a good candidate for a Breast Lift procedure. If breast mass loss is also a concern, a combination Breast Lift/Breast Augmentation may be the best option.
The incision in a Breast Lift is generally made around the areola and then down vertically toward the crease of the breasts. The exact incision route varies depending on the patient’s individual wants and needs. In nearly all cases the areola and nipple remain intact to their original nerve and blood supply as the skin around the areola is excised and often the areola is repositioned higher to correspond with the new position of the breasts. The next step, if you are considering a Breast Lift, is schedule a consultation. Contact our office today to schedule yours.
