Breast Lift Helps Restore Youthful Appearance
Breasts that were once firm and shapely may begin to sag due to aging, pregnancies, weight changes and other factors. A breast lift, or mastopexy, can help to restore firmer, shapelier breasts to improve a woman’s body contours and give her a more youthful appearance.
During breast lift procedures, breast shape is improved as they are lifted to a new, more upright position. Breast lifts are used to adjust the shape, symmetry and nipple placement of the breasts by removing excess skin, reshaping the breast tissue and tightening the remaining skin. These procedures often include breast augmentation to increase the size of the breasts as well.
Different types of breast lift procedures are used based on the degree of sagging and your breast size. The board certified plastic surgeons at Hedden & Gunn Plastic Surgery offer complimentary breast lift consultations where they can assess the degree of sagging and determine the type of breast lift procedure that will most benefit you and your goals.
Following a breast lift, patients will notice an immediate difference in breast shape and position. Your breast appearance may continue to change as swelling decreases, and final results may take up to a year. Over time, scars may fade to thin white lines.
