Beautiful breasts comprise of three characteristics. These characteristics include size, shape and position. Women considering a breast lift procedure or a mastopexy may want their breast restored to its younger, firmer and perkier position. Having a more lifted breast will improve one’s aesthetic appearance and improve one’s bra and swimsuit fittings experience. A breast lift procedure involves removing excessive and stretched skin, reshaping the breast tissue and raising and repositioning the nipple and areola, placing it in a higher and centered position. A personal and thorough consultation with a cosmetic plastic surgeon specializing breast surgery will help you make the decision if a breast lift is right for you. Some of the reasons one would consider a breast lift procedure or mastopexy would include:
- Your nipples are too pointing downward. Sagging skin and breast tissue can pull on the nipples and drawing it downward. A breast lift procedure will lift and reposition the nipples placing them in a more youthful position.
- You nipples are sitting below the crease under your breasts. When there is significant amount of sagging and drooping, your nipple and areola may sit under the inframammary fold.
- You are unhappy with your breast size. A breast lift procedure will not change your breast is size significantly. A combination of a breast lift along with a breast augmentation procedure or a breast reduction procedure may be required to achieve the desired size.
- Your breasts are asymmetrical or have uneven shape. A breast lift procedure will shape the breast tissue and lift to create a more symmetry giving it a more natural look.
There are a variety of techniques used for the breast lift procedure and these techniques used will depend on the patient’s anatomy, pre-existing breast tissue, shape and the amount of skin to be lifted and removed. These techniques will offer different size or length of scars. The patient’s personal aesthetic goals will also be considered when your cosmetic plastic surgeon is recommending the type of technique used to lift your breasts. It is not uncommon for your plastic surgeon to recommend a breast lift with a breast augmentation procedure or a breast lift with a breast reduction procedure.
