Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure to improve the appearance and aesthetics of the breasts. The breast lift surgery will address the drooping of a patient’s breasts. Breasts may drop for several reasons, including age, gravity, pregnancy, weight loss, and genetics, which causes the breast mounds to drop and look “saggy.” The breast mound will typically be found leaning over the breast crease and falling upon the upper abdomen. In addition, the nipple and areola complex will be observed pointing downward. The surgical procedure to correct breast sagging is a breast lift procedure but may be coupled with breast augmentation using breast implants.
How is Breast Lift Procedure Done?
A breast lift procedure helps raise breasts by removing excess breast skin. SurgiSculpt surgeons utilize an anchor incision in their breast lifts to allow for maximum removal of all skin redundancy. An anchor incision is generally made around the nipple and vertically down the breast to the inframammary crease.
Leaving the inframammary crease intact and unaltered is crucial to a breast lift procedure. After removing the skin, your surgeon can reshape the breast tissue to your desired shape. The nipples are lifted to a higher position, and the skin is tightened around the nipple as it is sutured together.
Our patients experience increased confidence after this surgery due to their new youthful physique. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient surgical suite (in-office) or hospital operating room.
SurgiSculpt surgeons perform this procedure with implants when patients desire increased volume and a lifted breast mound. If you are unhappy with your current appearance and want a more youthful breast appearance, contact us for a complimentary breast lift procedure consultation today!
