The Benefit of a Breast Lift

All women’s breasts change over time: from pregnancy and breast feeding, to weight fluctuations, to gravity and aging. By nature, over time breasts tend to lose their youthful shape and firmness although even very young women may experience loose, sagging breasts simply from heredity.

Breast lift surgery helps restore the firmness and youthful shape of a woman’s breasts by removing excess skin and by tightening the surrounding tissue. A breast lift may also reduce the size of the areola (the pigmented skin surrounding the nipple) if it has become enlarged over time.

Breast Lift Basics

The medical term for a breast lift is mastopexy. The goal of the procedure is to uplift and improve the shape of a female breast, while also giving the breast greater firmness. For women who want to increase the size of their breasts, implants may be inserted at the time of breast lift surgery.

San Francisco patients often request that their breast lift be paired with a tummy tuck or liposuction. Generally speaking, the Breast Lift procedure is useful to any woman who could describe these conditions:

  • Breasts which sag, even though they are proportionate to her body frame.
  • Breasts that have a flat, elongated shape and nipples that point downward.
  • Breasts which fall below the breast crease when unsupported.
  • Breasts which have lost their firmness, apparent in the reduced elasticity of their skin.
  • Breasts that are asymmetrical, where one hangs lower than the other.
