Breast Lift

Many women notice that after weight loss, pregnancy, or simply with the passing of time, their breasts have changed. These changes may include sagging, loss of volume, and increased nipple size. These changes often have a negative impact on a woman’s self-esteem.

Breast Lift/Mastopexy restores a more youthful appearance to sagging breasts. While it does not increase the breast size, a breast lift does reshape and reposition the breast by tightening the existing tissue. In addition, a breast lift will reposition the nipple in a more aesthetically pleasing location; reclaiming some of what gravity and/or pregnancy has altered.

A breast lift may be coupled with a Breast Augmentation or fat grafting if greater volume is a part of your goal. Some women choose to have other procedures in combination with their breast lift. Common procedures to combine with a breast lift include breast augmentation, liposuction, and abdominoplasty.
