BREAST LIFT (MASTOPEXY)
A breast lift is a procedure that raises your breasts on your chest wall by removing excess skin in order to restore a perkier and more youthful appearance.
Whether from the natural effects of aging, hormonal changes with breastfeeding or significant weight loss, breasts may develop an unflattering sagginess that can only be addressed by surgical intervention.
Depending on the size and shape of the breasts, together with the degree of sagging and amount of excess skin, Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. Pathak will determine an appropriate incisional approach, mindful of a patient’s concerns regarding scarring. This may include an incision around the areola and down to the breast crease in a lollipop shape, or in cases of more significant sagging an extension that incision is made along the inframammary fold crease in what is often referred to as “anchor shape” scar. An aesthetic approach to elevating the breast tissue helps in creating a breast shape that is optimal in proportions, with our surgeons being particularly adept at precisely positioning the nipple and resizing of the areola involved in this procedure.
Reconciling a patient’s breast (gland/fat) composition and desires for upper breast fullness placement of a small or moderately sized implant may be recommended at the time of your mastopexy to best restore or augment the superior pole of the breast. Schedule a consultation to determine your candidacy for this combined breast enhancement and rejuvenation option.
