Mastopexy, more commonly referred to as a Breast Lift, is a procedure to lift the breasts by removing excess, sagging skin. This lift helps to restore youth and more fullness to the breasts. With age and particularly after life experiences such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss, the breasts can begin to sag and even lose mass. If you are unhappy with the current state of your breasts you may be a good candidate for a Breast Lift procedure. If lack of fullness and cleavage is also a concern, a combination Breast Lift/Breast Augmentation may be the best option.
The incision in a Breast Lift is almost always made around at least the areola. Some techniques may then go vertically down toward the crease of the breasts, and may curve around to the side or add a horizontal scar. The exact incision route varies depending on the patient’s individual wants and needs. In all cases, the areola and nipple remain connected to their original nerve and blood supply. The skin around the nipple and areola is excised and the nipple and areola are repositioned higher to correspond with the new position of the breasts.
