Breast Lift, Or Mastopexy, Is A Surgical Procedure To Lift The Breasts
Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to lift the breasts. Good candidates for a breast lift are women who, for a variety of reasons such as gravity, aging, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, have experienced a sagging of the breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts tend to elongate and lose their more youthful form.
As the breasts begin to sag, they may also lose some of their size that they previously had. Because of this, Dr. Palmer may recommend that you consider breast augmentation at the same time as your cosmetic surgery breast lift. This can easily be accomplished at the same surgery and through the same incisions. Adding a breast implant simultaneously while lifting the breast can often improve fullness in the upper part of the breast and add cleavage.
