Breast Lift

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure aimed at rejuvenating sagging breasts by removing excess skin and reshaping breast tissue to restore a firmer, more youthful appearance. The procedure involves lifting the breasts to a higher position on the chest wall and repositioning the nipples and areolas for a more aesthetically pleasing contour. Mastopexy does not significantly change breast size but can enhance symmetry and restore confidence. It's ideal for women experiencing sagging due to factors like pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, or aging. Breast lift surgery offers long-lasting results, revitalizing the breasts and enhancing overall body image.

Correct Breast Sagging

Correcting breast sagging involves a breast lift or mastopexy procedure. Excess skin is removed, and breast tissue is reshaped to elevate the breasts, restoring firmness and a youthful appearance. This surgical intervention addresses sagging caused by factors like pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging.

Enhance Breast Shape and Feel

A breast lift, often the preferred option for women seeking to enhance breast shape and feel, addresses pendulous, flattened, or elongated breasts by removing excess tissue and repositioning them. Our plastic surgeon in Denver, CO, has expertise in eliminating sagging and reshaping breast tissue into a more aesthetically pleasing contour. This transformative procedure corrects flabbiness and restores firmness, creating a fuller, more youthful appearance with enhanced tactile sensation.

Provide a Symmetrical Profile

Achieving a symmetrical breast profile is often challenging due to natural variations or changes from factors like nursing and aging. Our plastic surgeon can address asymmetry through breast lift surgery in Denver, restoring balance to the bust line. This procedure redefines contours, creating a more harmonious and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Call us to learn more.

Improve Nipple Position and Appearance

Beyond breast sagging, women often encounter alterations in their nipple-areolar complexes. Nipples may droop, point downward, or fall below the breast crease, while the areola may stretch and enlarge. Our plastic surgeon addresses these concerns by adjusting the nipple position and resizing the areolar complex during breast lift surgery. This corrective procedure restores a natural, aesthetically pleasing appearance, enhancing overall breast symmetry and contour for improved self-confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Good candidates for a breast lift are women who experience sagging or drooping breasts due to factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, or aging. Candidates should have good overall health and realistic expectations about the procedure's outcome.

During a breast lift procedure, incisions are made around the areola, down the breast, and possibly along the breast crease, depending on the extent of correction needed. Excess skin is removed, and the breast tissue is reshaped and lifted to create a youthful contour.

The results of a breast lift are immediately visible, although final results may take several weeks to fully manifest as swelling subsides and the breasts settle into their new shape. With proper care and maintenance, the results of a breast lift can be long-lasting, enhancing your confidence and self-image.

Recovery from a breast lift varies from patient to patient but generally involves some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the days following the surgery. Most patients can resume light activities within a few days and return to work within a week, although strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks.

The cost of a breast lift can vary depending on factors such as geographic location, surgeon's experience, facility fees, anesthesia fees, and any additional procedures performed concurrently with the breast lift. During your consultation, your surgeon will provide a detailed breakdown of the costs associated with your procedure and discuss financing options available to you.
