MASTOPEXY (BREAST LIFT)
You find it virtually impossible to wear strapless or spaghetti-strapped clothing. The strapless bra in your drawer just isn’t making a difference. You constantly have to put a jacket or vest over cute outfits because there is no way that you could consider going without a bra for support. Perhaps your breasts are not as full and perky as they used to be. Perhaps they don’t have the shape and contour that you desire. Many external factors such as age, gravity, fluctuations in weight, breastfeeding, pregnancy, and even genetics can cause us to be unhappy with the way our breasts look.
Many women spend a ton of money on undergarments that are meant to lift or support their breasts. Yet when they remove their bra they feel like everything just sags and droops. There is hope! A mastopexy is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and changes the shape/contour of the breasts. A breast lift can be paired with implant placement when necessary to create a fuller, more youthful looking bust. A mastopexy tightens the breast tissue and literally raises the breasts to a higher position in the chest wall.
The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis so you’ll be able to go home the same day. There is no need for a hospital stay. How do you know if a breast lift is right for you? Key indications are if your breasts have a long or flat shape (like a ball at the end of a tube sock), your nipples are lower than your the fold below your breast, you feel like your breasts sag, or your nipples point downward. As long as you are at a stable weight, do not have major medical problems, and have realistic expectations, then you are a candidate for a mastopexy.
Whether you schedule a consultation with our office or another plastic surgeon, always be sure that your surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is qualified to perform surgeries in accredited or state-licensed medical facilities.
