Breasts sag for various reasons such as aging, childbirth, changes in weight or a genetic predisposition. There may be a decrease in the volume of the breast, stretching of the skin, as well as an overall loss of shape. A Mastopexy or Breast Lift is a procedure that can restore and enhance the natural beauty of the breast. It tightens the skin, uplifts the breasts to their former position on the chest and gives the nipples and areolas (the darker skin surrounding the nipples) a more youthful, more attractive appearance.
During a mastopexy or breast lift procedure one of our trained plastic surgeons uplifts the breast and removes excess skin. Once the breast is lifted, the surgeon skillfully places the remaining skin into its proper position. At the end of the procedure, breasts are firmer, more voluptuous and more alluring. Our plastic surgery specialist also ensures that the nipples are adjusted to look visually appealing, ensuring a perky, youthful appearance.
On occasion, a breast “lift” may simply be a breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, which only involves adding more volume. When an actual repositioning of the breasts is required, a proper breast lift will enhance the shape and pertness.
Ohio Plastic Surgery Specialists can also offer a procedure for a simultaneous Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation. This procedure increases the size and fullness of the breasts as well as improves firmness.
