As we grow and our bodies change, breasts often lose firmness and begin to sag. For those who want to have their breasts lifted but don’t feel the need for an implant may want to consider a breast lift or mastopexy. A breast lift tightens the skin, uplifts the breasts to their former position on the chest and gives the nipples and areolas a restored appearance.
During a mastopexy or breast lift procedure our trained plastic surgeon 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 and more voluptuous. Our plastic surgery specialist also ensures that the nipples are adjusted to look visually appealing and ensuring a perky appearance.
When having a breast lift without breast augmentation, it is important to remember that the lift may cause cup size to decrease slightly so if you are looking to increase size or maintain current size, breast augmentation may be necessary. When choosing your procedure, discuss your desired results with your surgeon so you know what will be best for you.
When choosing a breast lift without breast augmentation, patients often contribute their choice to wanting to reduce the size which pairs the lift with a breast reduction. Depending on when the procedure is done, this may keep patients from having to replace implants or have another surgery. However, results of breast lifts or mastopexy vary depending on age, genetics, skin elasticity and more.
