Are you feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your breasts? Here’s how a mastopexy can help you achieve the figure you’ve always wanted.

For women who are looking to improve the position, size, and shape of their breasts, breast implants are often the first solution they think of. However, in recent years, the unique benefits of a mastopexy, more commonly referred to as a breast lift, are being increasingly recognized.

Some of the great benefits of a mastopexy include:

  • Improved shape, projection, and symmetry of breasts
  • Better fit of clothes and improved confidence
  • There will only be light scarring
  • Results can last for many years

If you are tired of feeling self-conscious about the shape and position of your breasts, and you want to take charge of your appearance, then you should talk to your plastic surgeon about whether a mastopexy is right for you.

When performed by a board-certified surgeon, a mastopexy is a safe and effective way of enhancing your body shape and helping you achieve all your aesthetic goals.

Want to know if a breast lift is right for you?


What Can A Mastopexy Achieve?

A breast lift can benefit patients who are concerned about loose skin around the breasts, sagging, or even nipple ptosis, all of which are conditions that are commonly associated with factors.

These factors include:

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Lifestyle habits (eg. smoking)
  • Pregnancy (especially multiple pregnancies)
  • Significant weight gain or loss

Depending on your concerns or goals, a breast lift can be tailored and performed to achieve several things, including:

  • Correctly positioning the nipple-areola (lifting a nipple that is too low)
  • Removing excess skin, resulting in improved breast position on the chest wall
  • Lifting and shaping the breast tissue itself for an enhanced appearance


What a Breast Lift Can Do For You

A mastopexy is often referred to as a breast lift for good reason: after the procedure, your breasts will sit higher. The result is especially beneficial for mothers who have experienced changes in their breasts due to pregnancy and childbirth. 

After surgery:

  • Your breasts will also be firmer
  • You can enjoy a more youthful appearance
  • Your bra and clothes will fit better
  • You can enjoy a more pleasing appearance

What a Breast Lift Cannot Do

While to many people, a breast lift is synonymous with a breast augmentation, the truth is that these two cosmetic procedures are performed for very different reasons. When debating whether a breast lift is right for you, it’s important to keep in mind that a breast lift cannot add volume to your breasts or increase your breast size.

Should I Get Implants With My Mastopexy?

If you wish to have larger breasts, you may want to consider getting implants in addition to your breast lift, because a mastopexy alone cannot achieve an increase in cup size.

In fact, many women do opt to have a breast augmentation mastopexy to: 

  • Offset the loss of tissue or volume, as well as the redistribution of fat that can happen due to age or pregnancy.
  • Correct any resultant sagging from age, genetics, or pregnancy.

Depending on your body type and aesthetic goals, your plastic surgeon may recommend getting implants along with your mastopexy, and these two surgeries can be performed simultaneously.
