Why Choose a Breast Lift?
Your body endures many changes throughout the course of your life and all the experiences you have. Breasts are susceptible to hormonal changes of puberty and pregnancy, weight gain and loss, and the normal pull of gravity as we age. These factors, combined with the decreased skin elasticity, cause the breasts to droop and lose their firmness and supple shape.
A breast lift, alternately known as a mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to raise and reshape your breasts to correct sagging. Surgeons can also reduce the size of the areola or raise the nipples. You may also have a breast augmentation procedure performed in conjunction with your breast lift surgery to achieve greater volume and firmness.
Who Can Get a Breast Lift?
A mastopexy is appropriate for any size breast and anyone who wants to improve their breast shape. Optimal candidates for breast lift surgery are healthy women who are emotionally-stable and have realistic expectations concerning the potential results of the procedure. Most importantly, you should go through the breast lift procedure because you want to, not because someone else wants you to.

When Should You Get a Breast Lift?
Breast lifts will not interfere with nursing or future pregnancies, but women expecting more children in the future might consider postponing a mastopexy. Pregnancy often results in stretched breasts that can offset the outcome of a previous breast lift procedure.
Will There be Scarring?
Surgeons remove excess skin based on how much a patient’s breasts droop. There are incisions, and therefore potential scarring. But scars fade within six to 12 months and are often made in inconspicuous areas, but predicting their appearance can be difficult. If you’re worried about scarring in lieu of sagging breasts, consult with one of our trained doctors to work out the details of your procedure to ensure that you are pleased and confident in your appearance.
