Candidates for Breast Lift (#Mastopexy) surgery
are women who have #saggingbreasts due to past pregnancies, genetics, or aging.
Often times the sagging is too great to be treated by implants alone. Women
with asymmetric or enlarged nipples or areolae (pigmented areas around nipples)
also may be candidates for a breast lift or a modification of a lift.
#Asymmetric breast can be adjusted by adding or removing volume. One side can
be tightened more or less than another.
The women that are candidates for
woman who’s had
a pregnancy. Maybe her breasts have become either just deflated, or the skin
has been stretched from pregnancy, and or breastfeeding. And now is in a lower
position than she would like. So, by doing the breast lift, we can tighten the
breast, tighten the breast skin, and put it into a more youthful position.
other category is patients who have had weight loss, again, through either diet
or surgical procedure. And a lot of women, when they lose weight, their breasts
will lose weight, and they, again, may have some sagging of their breasts.
then there’s a third category, which are #DevelopmentalBreastProblems. I see young women that come to the office,
and the two breasts are very asymmetric. One breast is lower than the other.
There may be differences in size. Or there are certain conditions: one’s called
tuberous breast deformity, where the breast has a more unusual shape. It may be
very narrow at the base on the chest. The whole breast can be very narrow.
There are different variations of it. But basically, that’s a growth and development
problem that creates a lot of angst for a young woman.
