A Breast Lift is used to firm a saggy breast. The procedure, also called a Mastopexy, changes the shape, but not the volume of the breasts. San Francisco Breast Lift patients can have their Mastopexy combined with Breast Augmentation or Breast Reduction, if a change in breast volume is desirable.
Breast Lift with Breast Augmentation Before and After
When Breast Size is Good, Just Lift Them
The Breast Lift is primarily a Breast Shaping procedure. Larger breast can be left larger, and smaller breast can be left smaller, depending on what you are comfortable with. Larger breasts do tend to require more maintenance in most cases, and may be at higher risk for needing another Breast Lift in the future. It is important to seek a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, and be fully informed before any procedure.
Large Breast Lift Before and Afters
Below is an example of a Breast Lift for a patient with larger breasts. If desired, the breast could have been reduced at the same time.
Small Breast Lift Before and Afters
It is not always desirable to increase the size of small breasts during the mastopexy surgery. The bridge, as they say, is not burned however. If in the future a larger cup size is desired, a Breast Implant can be inserted in the future. There are certain cases when it is better to stage the Breast Lift and Breast AUgmentation, but most the time they can be performed at the same surgery.
Mastopexy Before and After – Side View
A breast lift not only raises the nipple up on the breast, but can raise the breast mound on the chest. This is best seen in the lateral (side) before and after pictures. My patient has a conveniently located skin lesion that makes this amount of elevation easy to see. The red spot (hemangioma) along side her breast is seen just in front of her arm, at the level of the elbow. After her Mastopexy, the breast is back on the chest, leaving the hemangioma on the abdomen, and well below the perky breasts.
