Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy is a procedure designed to improve the appearance of sagging breasts. The goal of mastopexy surgery is to obtain a more youthful breast appearance with improved breast fullness, youthful shape and reduced sagging.
There are a variety of breast lift techniques available. Each breast lift procedure is customized for the individual patient. Breast lift surgery can also be combined with breast augmentation using implants. This combination results in a fuller breast shape, especially in the upper pole of the breast. Breast lift surgery can be combined with fat injections to the breast to enhance breast volume without the need for a breast implant.
How does the breast shape change with age?
Two major changes occur in the breasts following pregnancy as well as a consequence of the normal aging process. The first major change is loss of fullness in the upper portion of the breast. This is commonly seen after the pregnancy and breast-feeding, leaving the breasts deflated and flattened. The second change is related to sagging of the areola and nipple region in relation to the breast as a whole. So in general terms, an aging breast has both a deflated and a droopy appearance.
What can a breast lift achieve?
A breast lift procedure can restore a firm and youthful breast appearance. Breast lift surgery tightens the sagging breast tissues and redistributes breast volume in a more aesthetically pleasing way. The nipple and areola are lifted into a youthful position. If additional breast volume is desired, a breast lift can be combined with a breast augmentation using a silicone or saline breast implant. A body liposuction procedure can be combined with fat injections to the breast to improve breast volume and shaping without the use of an implant.
