As a woman ages, her skin loses some elasticity, causing the breast to sag under the pull of gravity.
Pregnancy can cause the breast to lose firmness and volume. A breast lift, or Mastopexy, is a procedure for safely lifting the sagging breast. In the procedure, excess skin is removed and the nipple raised to a higher position. The breast skin is reshaped and tailored to create a more youthful breast. For better results, your breast lift surgeon may recommend the use of saline breast implants along with the mastopexy procedure.
Even though this surgery does not affect future pregnancies or breast feeding, the results may not be as long lasting. Women who are planning pregnancies may wish to postpone this procedure. The surgery can be performed as an outpatient and takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete. Most patients can return to work within 4-5 days following surgery. After your procedure the physicians at The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery® may offer a visit to your home by a plastic surgery nurse, trained to assist in your recovery.
