As women age, their breasts begin to lose their shape. Breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and loss of elasticity in the skin may cause the breasts to sag or elongate, causing self-consciousness or physical discomfort. A mastopexy, or breast lift, is a surgical procedure that elevates the breasts, removing excess skin to firm and rejuvenate the figure. Patients who have breast lift surgery regain the perky, youthful figures that age or life has changed.

Reasons for Choosing Breast Lift Surgery

woman breastfeedingChoosing cosmetic surgery is a deeply personal decision. Undergoing cosmetic procedures should always be about boosting your own self-confidence, not about succumbing to pressure or fitting another person’s ideal. You may be a good candidate for breast lift surgery if:

  • You are happy with the size of your breasts
  • You are unhappy that your breasts have begun to sag or lose their shape
  • Your breasts droop unevenly
  • When unsupported, your nipples fall beneath the crease of your breasts
  • The skin of your breasts is stretched or sagging
  • You are physically healthy

Breast Lift Consultation

Breast lift surgery uplifts and reshapes the breasts, restoring a more youthful appearance. During a breast lift consultation, Dr. Brantner and his patient discuss the surgical procedure and recovery, the desired aesthetic, and current health concerns that may affect the procedure. Some women may choose to have only a breast lift, while women who are unhappy with their breast size may choose to have breast implants or a breast reduction as well. Breast lift surgery firms and shapes the breasts, but it does not affect the size or fullness of the breasts. You should feel comfortable discussing any breast lift questions, preoperative stresses, or clarification of your desired results with Dr. Brantner during your consultation.
