Breast Lift

What is breast lift?


Commonly referred to as a breast lift or boob lift, mastopexy surgery raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour.

Enhancing your appearance with a breast lift

A woman's breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:

 

  • Pregnancy

  • Breastfeeding

  • Weight fluctuations

  • Aging

  • Gravity

  • Heredity

 

Breast lift procedure steps
What happens during breast lift surgery? Your mastopexy surgery can be achieved through a variety of incision patterns and techniques. The appropriate technique for you will be determined based on:

 

  • Breast size and shape

  • The size and position of your areolas

  • The degree of breast sagging

  • Skin quality and elasticity as well as the amount of extra skin


There are three common incision patterns:

 

1- Around the areola and vertically down from the areola to the breast crease

2- Around the areola

3- Around the areola, vertically down from the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease
