A breast lift, otherwise known in medical terms as a “mastopexy”, is a surgery that lifts and tightens the breasts by removing excess skin and re positioning the breast tissue to support and reshape the breast into a more youthful contour and appearance.
Breasts often change shape and firmness with age. With more maturity, and often hormonal changes, breast can lose volume, firmness, perkiness, and skin elasticity. The most major contributors to breast ptosis a.k.a, “breast sag” are:
- Breast feeding
- Weight Fluctuation
Breast lift surgery is not only designed to significantly change the size of your breasts, neither by increasing or decreasing its size. If fuller looking breast are desired along with a breast lift, then breast implants should be considered as well. For the opposite: smaller, lifted breasts, a breast reduction/lift would likely be the appropriate surgery .
An ideal breast lift surgery patient would be someone who :
- has realistic expectations
- is healthy
- is stable in weight
- is NOT a smoker
- has breasts sag, lost shape and volume and is concerned about it
- has nipples that fall below the breast crease
- have nipples and areolas that point south
- have some sort of breast asymmetry that can be corrected or improved with a breast lift
