Approaches to Breast Lifts
So your breast size is fine, but aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight change or plain old gravity has taken a toll. They’re just not as firm and pert as before. You could use a lift. Mastopexy surgery raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and re-positioning the surrounding tissue and nipples.
Dr. Adams has a wide range of experience with all types of breast lift techniques, enabling him to customize his approach based on your unique characteristics and desires. There are several types of breast lifts, which differ in the placement and type of incision. During the consultation, Dr. Adams will help you to determine which type of breast lift is right for you.
During the procedure, he will lift the breast tissue, removing excess skin so that your breasts are perkier and sit higher on your chest. The goal of Mastopexy is to lift the breasts to an elevated position and give them a younger and firmer appearance. A breast lift can also reduce the size of the areola, which can spread over time. The overall effect of the surgery is to reshape the breast, enhancing the contour and restoring a healthy, vigorous appearance. Breast lifts can:
- Elevate the position of your breasts
- Reposition the nipple and areola to a higher point on the breast
- Result in breasts that look and feel firmer and younger
Breast Lift and Augmentation
Frequently, women choose to combine a breast lift with breast augmentation, which increases the size of their breasts. The result of this combined procedure is a younger-looking silhouette, with breasts that are both fuller and perkier. Many patients find this technique to be the ideal way to enhance both the shape and size of their breasts in a single surgical session.
Many women find that childbirth, breastfeeding, gravity, aging and weight loss dramatically affect both the shape and positioning of their breasts. If your breasts have begun to sag, a breast lift may be right for you. Many women seeking this procedure complain that they feel like there is too much breast skin for the volume of breast tissue. If your breasts have begun to point downward rather than outward, or you feel self-conscious about how your breasts look when you’re not wearing a bra, a breast lift can restore your confidence.
