A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a plastic surgery that raises the position of the breasts for a more youthful appearance. By tightening the surrounding area and removing excess skin, breasts that sag or point downwards are lifted and reshaped. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Huntington Plastic Surgery Institute are specialists in creating flattering outcomes that delight patients and help them to look and feel their very best.
What Does a Breast Lift Do?
Breasts naturally change over time due to a loss of elasticity in the skin caused by aging, weight changes, pregnancy, and lactation – not to mention gravity. These changes can result in a less flattering overall physique and silhouette. A breast lift raises the vertical projection of the breasts, providing a more youthful look and renewed self-esteem.
More specifically, a breast lift improves the vertical position and to some degree, the shape of a patient’s breasts by correcting sagging and downward projection of the nipples. A breast lift, however, may somewhat reduce a patient’s cup size and does not significantly alter the horizontal projection of the patient’s breasts when not combined with a breast augmentation. Plastic surgeons can also reduce the size of enlarged areolas during the procedure.
