Breast Lift Procedure
A breast lift—or mastopexy—restores lost shape, volume, or elasticity due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, drastic weight change, aging, or even heredity. Breast lifts provide the structure and support necessary to remedy an asymmetrical or “drooping” appearance. They can also help reduce enlarged or misshapen areolas that often occur from breastfeeding. By removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue, this procedure can help reshape and revitalize your breasts, your body, and your confidence.
A breast lift alone does not significantly change the size of the breast or fill out the upper part (upper pole) of the breast; this can be achieved through a simultaneous breast augmentation if necessary. One of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Oklahoma, a mastopexy procedure is relatively simple and involves minimal incisions.
You may be a good candidate for a breast lift if you:
- Are a non-smoker
- Have nipples & areolas that point downward and/or fall below the inframammory fold
- Have breasts that sag or have lost shape and volume
- Have breasts with a flat, elongated, or pendular shape
- Have one breast lower than the other
- Have stretched skin and enlarged areolas
Breast lift surgery can be performed with a variety of incision patters and techniques, all dependent upon factors such as skin quality and elasticity; breast size and shape; degree of breast sagging, and size and position of the areolas. In general, the breast tissue is lifted and reshaped to restore the ideal breast contour and firmness. The nipple and areola are repositioned to a more natural height and, if necessary, reshaped by excising perimeter skin. Excess breast skin is also removed to compensate for loss in elasticity.
The benefits and improvements of a breast lift are immediate. Post-surgical swelling will decrease and incision lines will fade, giving you a flawless, more beautiful shape that will restore your confidence.
