BREAST LIFT SURGERY | MASTOPEXY
Mastopexy, or breast lift surgery, restores a more youthful appearance to a woman’s breast. Breasts can lose their shape and firmness as a result of gravity, weight loss, pregnancy, nursing, all of which can cause them to sag. A breast lift will raise and reshape the breasts, slowing the effects of aging and gravity. This procedure can also reduce the size of the areola which is the darker skin surrounding the nipple if the patient desires. Breast lifts alone will only remove the sagging breast tissue and reposition the nipple. For this reason, breast lifts are commonly performed in conjunction with breast augmentation (implants) to increase the fullness in the upper pole of the breast and provide cleavage.
Who is a good candidate for breast lift surgery?
- Age 18 to 65
- Generally in good health
- Desire aesthetic enhancement of the breast
- Desires augmentation and/or lift of the breast
- Don’t mind scars around areola or vertical from areola to inframammary fold when breast lifts are performed
Breastfeeding after breast lift surgery.
Statistically, 30% of all women are unable to breast feed even if they have had no breast surgery. However, because some milk ducts are disrupted during the surgery you may not be able to breastfeed following any breast surgery. Some women successfully breastfeed after having the surgery but it is difficult to who will be able to. Most women delay breast lift surgery until childbearing is complete to avoid any potential breast feeding issues.
