What is a Breast Lift?
A Breast Lift (mastopexy) is a cosmetic surgery that enhances, re-contours, and elevates breasts that have begun to sag due to age, genetics, child-bearing, nursing, significant weight loss or gain, and gravity. Each woman is unique, and Dr. Papanicolaou may combine your procedure with breast augmentation to lift the patients’ breasts and help them achieve their aesthetic goals.
This treatment will tighten sagging tissue, and drooping breasts (breast ptosis), and remove excess skin for a more youthful position. Most women will also use this treatment to fix nipples that point downward for a more youthful appearance.
Please keep in mind that this treatment will not affect your breast size. If your breasts lack volume or firmness, inserting either a saline or silicone breast implant, can be done during the breast lift procedure, resulting in perkier, firm breasts. Dr. Papanicolaou uses the safest and newest techniques to deliver outstanding results with minimal scarring.
