Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

A breast lift is a cosmetic procedure typically performed for the purpose of lifting sagging, loose breasts that have lost volume and elasticity after child bearing or with age. The procedure will reshape the breasts to achieve a more youthful appearance. Stretched, excess skin is removed and the breasts are firmed and repositioned. A mastopexy can be performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation to give the breasts a fuller appearance.

This procedure is generally performed on women between the ages of 30-55 years of age. The recovery time for this surgery is from 2-4 weeks with sutures being removed after one week. In our practice, it is generally expected that patients will be finished having their children prior to undertaking this procedure.
