Why might a woman need a breast lift?

Time takes a toll on the body and skin.  More than most areas of the body, the breasts are subject to many stresses in a women’s life.  Breast feeding, collagen loss in the skin with aging, and weight gain change the shape and firmness of the breasts over time.  A breast lift turns back the clock to a more youthful figure.  


What is a breast lift?

A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, can reverse the problem of sagging breasts by reshaping the breast tissue, tightening the skin, and elevating them to a more youthful position.  If desired, the size of the areola can also be reduced during the same procedure.  


What are the benefits of a breast lift?

A breast lift can restore the breasts to a firmer and more aesthetically pleasing shape.  The benefits of this procedure are not limited to the breasts alone; it improves the overall figure of a woman’s body.  The more youthful and uplifted breasts help to bring the rest of the body into proportion.  


What does a breast lift not do?

A breast lift does not significantly reduce the size of the breasts like a breast reduction.  For women that want to increase the size of the breasts or develop cleavage should consider breast augmentation.  No plastic surgery procedure should be considered a weight loss procedure or a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle.
