Breast Lift – Mastopexy
Dr. Park’s Approach:
“A Breast Lift is a great procedure to reverse the effects of aging and child bearing on the breasts. Some younger women who haven’t had children but who naturally have excess skin and sagging of their breast tissue often can benefit from this procedure as well.
I believe that the most effective techniques reshape the breast in addition to removing skin and re-positioning the nipple to a higher position. I favor vertical techniques which create scars around the nipple and vertically down from the nipple to the fold under the breast. It is sometimes necessary to remove additional skin at the bottom of the breast which will result in a horizontal scar under the breast.
The transformation from a sagging, drooping breast to a higher, tighter, more youthful appearing breast is dramatic. Although the scars are significant, they are usually considered a great trade-off for such improvement in shape.”
What is Breast Lift surgery?
A Breast Lift, also known as Mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. New statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show Breast Lifts have grown 70% since 2000, outpacing breast implants 2-to-1.
Sometimes the Areola becomes enlarged over time, and a Breast Lift will reduce this as well.
A Breast Lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted.
A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:
- Weight fluctuations
What Breast Lift surgery won’t do:
Breast Lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast.
If you want your breasts to look fuller, consider Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation surgery.
If you want smaller breasts, consider combining Breast Lift and Breast Reduction surgery.
