Breast Lift - Mastopexy

Breast Lift Procedure at Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center of El Paso

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, and gravity take their toll on a woman's breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. The number of women receiving breast lift surgery has grown by almost 90% since 2000, and in fact, that number surpasses the growth of augmentations in that time frame. More and more women are saying “I want my breasts back.” Rather than increasing or decreasing the size of their breasts, they simply desire a more youthful shape that undoes the effects of age and other contributing factors.

Is a Breast Lift the Right Procedure for Me?

Many women opt for a breast lift as a result of sagging breasts after having children in order to restore the shape of their breasts. Other good candidates include women whose nipples fall below the breast crease or who are dealing with back pain as a result of large breasts. Some women also get breast lifts because their breasts prevent them from physical activity such as running or weight lifting. It’s important to note that women can get breast lifts at an age after the breasts are fully developed. This procedure can take place before or after pregnancy and it doesn’t affect the ability to breastfeed. Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small or have lost volume--for example, after pregnancy--breast implants inserted in conjunction with the breast lift, or mastopexy, can increase both their firmness and their size.

What Does a Breast Lift Procedure Entail?

During the breast lift procedure, the surgeon reshapes the breast tissue and removes excess skin in order to set the breast at a higher position. The nipple is also placed at a higher position on the chest wall and the skin of the breast is is tightened to lift the breast into a more perky position. The surgeon can also resize the areola in order to produce natural looking result. An augmentation can also be combined with this procedure in order to also increase breast size. While each plan of care is individualized, breast lifts are usually done in a few hours and do not require an overnight stay. Patients can expect to take it easy for a few days after surgery, but recovery time is fairly minimal. Your surgeon will go over your care plan and discuss any possible limitations following the procedure.
