A breast lift, or mastopexy surgery, is designed to elevate and reshape breasts that have sagged or lost their shape or volume due to:
• Pregnancy or breastfeeding
• Weight changes
• Natural aging or genetics
According to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast lifts procedures have emerged as one of the premier breast augmentation procedures, outpacing breast implant procedures 2 to 1.
There are several techniques available for breast lift surgery depending on the degree of sagging that has occurred.
Dr. Lorenc’s surgical objective during a breast lift is to achieve a more youthful, lifted appearance to the breasts.
Who is an ideal candidate?
You may consider a breast lift surgery if you are bothered by sagging in your breasts or feel that they have lost their natural shape and volume. Breast lift surgery can also help improve the appearance of the nipples and areolas, which may have changed due to pregnancy and breastfeeding or natural aging.
A breast lift is often considered alongside breast augmentation surgery for women who wish to achieve larger breasts as well.
Other considerations that should be weighed when determining if a breast lift is right for you include:
• Your health: No underlying health conditions that may make healing more difficult
• Your expectations: Individuals should approach a breast lift with positive and realistic expectations
