A Breast lift, also known as a Mastopexy, raises the breast by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Drooping or sagging breast is a condition known as ptosis. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted.
is a breast lift right for me?
Many women experience a loss of elasticity from aging, weight fluctuations, pregnancy and breast-feeding. However, other women have not had these issues but have had a natural descent of nipple and breast position that would benefit from lifting. A breast lift can address this condition with remarkable results and help restore body confidence.
Breast lifts can also be performed in combination with breast augmentation or reduction to accomplish desired changes in overall fullness, size and shape.
common questions and concerns
What is the difference between a breast lift and a reduction? Breast lift should not be confused with breast reduction. While the goal of the latter is to make disproportionately large and heavy breasts smaller and lighter, the goal of breast lift surgery is simply to return breasts that have lost their youthful profile to a more flattering position on the chest.

what are my surgical options?
There are various breast lift techniques and incision types depending upon each individual patient. During the procedure, incisions are made to remove excess skin, the breasts are lifted and reshaped, and areolas are moved into a higher position to achieve a natural look. Once the reshaping is complete, the breasts are sutured.
Mastopexy in conjunction with a breast augmentation is a favorite surgery among moms. This combination is designed to result in a more youthful and perkier shape.
