Breast Lift Q & A
What is a breast lift?
A breast lift, medically known as a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that involves lifting your breasts up if they’re sagging or seem flattened. Though your breast lift surgery is entirely tailored to your specific needs, many breast lift surgeries involve:
- Removing excess skin
- Contouring your breasts
- Reshaping your areolas
A breast lift is beneficial for rejuvenating your overall figure and helping you achieve a more youthful appearance and perkier bustline.
Why do I need a breast lift?
One of the most common reasons to need a breast lift is feeling like your breasts are deflated or sagging after pregnancy and nursing. But even if you haven’t had children, you can still benefit from a breast lift. You may also want to consider a breast lift because of:
- Your genetic breast shape
- Weight fluctuations
- Gravity and aging
- Uncomfortable rubbing skin
A breast lift won’t significantly change the size or shape of your breasts, so if you want to enhance your breast size, Dr. Henderson might suggest pairing your personalized breast lift with a breast augmentation procedure. This can be particularly beneficial if your breasts vary dramatically in size.
Am I a good candidate for a breast lift?
The best way to know for certain if you’re a good candidate for a breast lift is to sit down and have a full evaluation with Dr. Henderson. This type of procedure might be right for you if:
- Your nipples and areolas point downward
- You’re in good overall health and don’t smoke
- Your breasts sag, have lost shape, or don’t have volume
- One breast is lower than the other
- Your breast skin is stretched
A breast lift is personalized to your specific needs and desired outcome. Just like each of your breasts is different, every breast lift procedure Dr. Henderson performs is unique. He takes the time to ensure your breast lift procedure provides you with the results you want that are suitable for your frame.
