Breast Lift Surgery is also Known As Mastopexy.
Every year, thousands of women undergo successful breast-lift surgery, experience no major problems and are pleased with the results. A breast lift addresses sagging and uneven breasts, decreased breast volume, and drooping nipples and stretched areolas (the darker area surrounding the nipples), thus recreating a youthful shape and lift to your breasts. If there is too little or too much breast volume, a breast augmentation or breast reduction might be recommended in addition to a lift.
Women planning to have children are advised to postpone surgery, since pregnancy and nursing can counteract its effects by stretching the skin. However, a breast lift should not affect your ability to breast-feed.
Breast lifts are usually done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia, and last from 1-½ to 3-½ hours.
When to consider a Breast Lift
- Pregnancy, nursing, gravity, weight gain or loss, normal aging, and heredity have taken a toll on the shape of your breasts, resulting in sagging
- If your surgeon thinks that breast implants alone are unlikely to achieve the contour you desire
- If the tissue surrounding the nipple or areola has become stretched
