With age and changes after pregnancy and breast feeding, breast tissue and the breast skin may begin to droop. A mastopexy or breast lift is a surgical procedure designed to lift the breasts re-creating a perky, full breast. How far the breast drops will determine how the breast is lifted. If only a minor lift is needed then a smaller incision just above the areola (nipple) may be all that is necessary. However, if more lifting is needed then an incision around the areola and down the inferior aspect of the breast may be required. This procedure may be combined with a breast augmentation procedure if you desire to have larger as well as lifted breasts. To see pre- and postoperative pictures as well as discuss a mastopexy then call for an initial consultation with Dr. Sanderson.
