*Individual results may vary
Many patients develop drooping, or ptosis, of the breasts with time, gravity, or pregnancies. A mastopexy or breast lift procedure will raise the breast to a higher position on the chest improve shape, but not increase volume. A candidate for this procedure is someone that is happy with the volume of the breast and wants only lifting.
A breast lift is performed to elevate the nipple and areola to the correct position corresponding to the level of the breast fold. The amount or length of the lifts scars is dependant on how much drooping is present. Smaller amounts of drooping will need smaller amounts of scar to left the present into a better position. More drooping means more scar. We will do the least amount of scar we feel necessary to get the breast into proper position. Scars around the nipple or vertically extending to the breast fold will soften, flatten, mature and lighten over many months. Breast feeding is generally not affected by this procedure.
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for mastopexy is to schedule a consultation. During a consultation, the procedure is explained in detail and all of your questions are answered. You will learn what reasonable expectations are given your particular anatomy and desires.
