Common life events such as pregnancy and weight gain or weight loss can take a toll on the skin and tissues of your breast, stretching out the skin envelope and causing the nipple to fall. A breast lift or mastopexy is a surgical procedure to lift your nipple and breast tissue back to a higher, more youthful position on the chest wall.
A breast lift is exactly as it sounds. Excess, sagging skin is excised in order to tighten the breast envelope, giving your breasts the appearance of being in a bra even when they’re not. A breast lift does not add volume, and may decrease it slightly, but lifts the nipple and breast tissue back to its original position, creating a more youthful appearance.
Though similar in technique to a breast reduction, a breast lift does not greatly reduce the volume in your breasts. For patients with sagging breasts who also desire more volume, Dr. Bindewald can often combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation. The right procedure for you will depend entirely on your individual anatomy, lifestyle, and goals.
