Breast Lift Surgery
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a cosmetic breast surgery that can reshape and lift the breast skin and tissue. There are many reasons a woman may want a breast lift to transform the breast area and create firmer, perkier breasts. At Maia Plastic Surgery, breast lift surgery is one of the many cosmetic breast procedures we offer at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA, either on its own or in combination with other breast changes.
The skin, muscles, fat and other tissues that form the breast are prone to sagging and stretching. The weight of the mammary glands, fat and tissue can stretch the skin over time, resulting in sagging breasts. There are some factors that can contribute to droopy breasts. These include:
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Weight gain, then loss
- Breast implants
- Aging skin and gravity
- Removal or downsizing of breast implants
Some women have natural breasts that are less perky than they would prefer, even at a young age. For others, aging, pregnancy, downsizing breast implants or other factors cause sagging skin and droopy breasts. A mastopexy, or breast lift, can remove excess skin and elevate the breast tissue to create firmer, perkier breasts that are well-formed and attractive.
Is Mastopexy the Right Choice for you?
If you are having breast implants downsized or removed, Dr. Maia can discuss the option of combining a mastopexy with your implant revision surgery. Due to the smaller size, many women experience drooping breasts when removing or downsizing implants. A breast lift can also be performed with a breast augmentation if there is ptosis, or sagging breast tissue.
For natural breasts, if your breasts have sagged due to weight gain/loss, pregnancy or breastfeeding, a breast lift can restore firmer, more youthful breasts. A breast lift can also be used to create firmer, rounder breasts if you genetically have droopy breasts. Excess skin can be removed, and the tissue lifted for improved appearance and shape.
Do you want firmer, lifted breasts? A mastopexy, or breast lift surgery, may be the solution.
