Mastopexy (Breast Lift)

Many woman inherit the tendency for drooping breast. Pregnancy, breast feeding, and aging can accentuate the droopiness or “breast ptosis” as we call it. The Breast Lifting  procedure (also called Mastopexy), elevates the breasts giving women a more youthful shape. Breast droop because there is too much skin. The lifting is accomplished by removing extra skin which requires leaving scars. These scars are well hidden beneath clothing and swim wear. The fine line scars for this procedure may be located around the areola only or extended towards the fold below the breasts.

This is a safe operation with a rapid recovery. It can be done under gentle sedation with local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Breast Lifting is sometimes done in conjunction with Breast Augmentation to give a woman more fullness in the upper part of the breast and to increase size.
