A mastopexy or breast lift operation is designed to improve the
shape and position of the breast without reducing their size. It is used for
breasts which sag or droop (ptosis). Sagging of the breasts may occur with
normal development for some women, or as part of the aging process. Pregnancy,
breast-feeding and weight loss are other conditions which increase breast
ptosis. Some patients will have a better shape to their breast such as
increased superior fullness if an implant is used at the time of mastopexy. The
procedure can also be combined with a minor breast reduction to reduce the
breast width if desired. The surgery will create an elevated, more youthful
breast contour. Also, the procedure will create nipple and areolae of the
desired size and at the correct height.
I prefer to use a #shortscar technique, #LollipopScar or #DonutLift” rather than the majority of surgeons in the United States that use an anchor pattern lift which involve more significant scarring.
