Breast Lift or Surgery Mastopexy (boob lift / breast lift / breast uplift/ plastic surgery for breasts)
This procedure is often referred to as a breast lift or boob lift. A Mastopexy procedure firms and lifts the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the tissue surrounding the breasts to reshape and support the new breast contour.
Enhancing your appearance with a breast lift
Unfortunately a woman’s breasts can change shape over time, losing their youthful firmness. The changes and loss of skin elasticity often results from:
Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged and a breast lift will reduce the size of the areola.
What a lift will not do for you
Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast. If you want your breasts to look fuller, consider breast lift and augmentation surgery. If you want smaller breasts, consider combining breast lift and reduction surgery.
Is a lift the right procedure for me?
Breast lift surgery is an individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to please anyone else.
A lift is a good option for you if:
– You are physically healthy and maintain a stable weight
– You do not smoke
– Your expectations are realistic
– Your breasts sag, have lost shape and volume
– Your breasts have an elongated shape or are pendulous
– When unsupported your nipples fall below the breast crease
– Your areolas and nipples point downward
– You have enlarged areolas and stretched skin
– One breast is lower than the other breast
A lift can certainly help the way we feel about ourselves, it can give a feeling of self-confidence and help us feel more feminine. Sagging breasts mean that you don’t want to found without your bra, ever! and that certainly undermines femininity and self-confidence. As with all surgeries, undergoing a lift must be carefully considered and your clinic must be carefully chosen.
