What is a Breast Lift?
Mastopexy is a procedure where breasts are lifted. This procedure is done to reposition breast tissue and nipples to more appropriate location on the chest wall. Also there will be improvement in breast shape along with more fullness over the superior part of the breasts. Best candidates are women who are looking for improvement and not necessarily perfection. You should be physically healthy and realistic in your expectations.
Who is a Breast Lift Candidate?
Breast augmentation surgically enhances the size and shape of a woman’s breast. This procedure may be done to enhance the body contour of a woman who feels her breast size is too small, to correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy, or to balance a difference in breast size.
Now playing on the words, can you get a breast lift from augmentation? Yes and No. It depends on the severity of the ptosis or “droopiness” of the breast to begin with. Moderate to severe cases of ptosis will require breast lift as well as augmentation to reposition the breast tissue and nipple over the implant.
