Breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure to improve the appearance and aesthetics of the breasts. This procedure can address the drooping of a patient’s breasts. Breasts may drop for several reasons including age, gravity, pregnancy, and genetics, which causes the breast mounds to drop and look “saggy”.
How is Breast Lift Procedure Done?
A breast lift procedure helps raise breasts by removing excess skin. Dr. Mowlavi utilizes an anchor incision in his breast lifts at the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute to allow for maximal lift and a safe, stable result. An anchor incision is generally made around the nipple and vertically down the breast to the inframammary crease.
Leaving the inframammary crease intact is crucial to a breast lift procedure. After the skin is removed, he is able to reshape the breast tissue to your desired shape. The nipples are then secured in a higher position and the skin is tightened as it is sutured back together.
Following this surgery, our patients experience increased confidence due to their new youthful physique. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia either in an outpatient surgical suite (in-office) or in a hospital operating room. A nonsurgical breast lift or a breast lift without an implant will leave the breasts in a more appealing position on the chest and still look natural as it is the patient’s own breast tissue.
Dr. Mowlavi also performs this procedure with implants if his patient desires increased volume as well as a lifted shape. If you are unhappy with your current appearance and want to have a more youthful look, contact us for a complimentary breast lift procedure consultation today!
