Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
A breast lift (mastopexy) is a surgical procedure that can often be an ideal solution for women who are experiencing an accumulation of excess, inelastic skin in the breasts, giving them a sagging appearance. As we age, factors such as gravity, weight changes, pregnancy and breast-feeding can affect the shape of the breasts. Natural development can also be a factor. Dr. Timothy Best can perform breast lift surgery to eliminate excess skin and tighten the remainder, giving the breasts a revitalized, more youthful appearance.
Breast Lift Treatment
Over time, the loss of elasticity within the skin can cause the breasts to lose their shape and firmness, causing them to droop or sag. Breast lift surgery removes excess breast skin and raises, reshapes and firms the breasts. The nipples are repositioned to a more elevated position, and the pigmented areola is reduced in size if necessary. If an increase in breast size is also desired, breast implants can also be placed – sometimes within the same surgery, sometimes requiring a 2 stage surgery to achieve the best results. Similarly, breast size can be reduced at the time of a mastopexy if that is required. Either way, no additional incisions or additional scarring results from combination of the two procedures.
Breast lift surgery can be performed as a day-procedure – most patients are able to return home on the same day of the treatment. The recovery process will vary with each patient; however, there will be some downtime necessary after breast lift surgery. Dr. Best will explain all aspects of the procedure to you and answer any questions you may have.
Breast lift surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgical breast enhancement procedures, and has helped women across the globe rejuvenate their breasts and restore confidence in their appearance.
