A mastopexy procedure (or commonly referred to as a breast lift) is a surgical procedure in which a woman’s breasts are lifted and firmed to create a more balanced, youthful appearing breast. A breast lift is achieved by removing the extra skin that has caused sagging, as well as tightening the tissue that surrounds the breast to give new shape and support to the improved breast contour.
Though unavoidable, it is a natural fact that a woman’s breasts change over time. Many factors contribute to drooping, flat breasts. The most common reasons associated with the loss of fullness and skin elasticity are:
- Breast Feeding
- Weight Gain or Weight Loss
A breast lift procedure can help to restore or maintain the youthful body of one’s past. While it will not change the overall size of a woman’s breasts, it can rejuvenate one’s figure to create a breast profile that is younger and more uplifted than it has been in years.
To enhance the size or add fullness to the upper layer of breast tissue, a patient may want to consider a breast augmentation at the time of the breast lift.
