Say Goodbye to Sagging Breasts with Breast Lift

Sagging breasts & breast lifts in the Bay AreaSagging breasts are the natural result of many different life events and health conditions. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, genetics, and aging may all cause breasts to sag.

Fortunately, a surgical procedure called breast lift, or mastopexy can return your breasts to a youthful, perky position. This surgery can also change areola size and, when needed, improve the contours of the breasts.

Here Dr. Ereso of Pearl-Ereso Plastic Surgery Center explains how a breast lift can help you achieve the breasts of your dreams.

What Does a Breast Lift Entail?

A breast lift elevates the nipple and sagging breast skin higher on the chest wall. This procedure can be effective on its own or in combination with breast augmentation.

The procedure begins with your surgeon placing you under general anesthesia. The surgeon will remove excess breast skin, reform the breast into the desired shape, and make sure that the nipple and areola are ideally positioned. If necessary, the surgeon will reduce the size of the areola.

What Benefits Can I Expect?

You can expect reshaped, repositioned breasts that look and feel natural. You’ll say goodbye to sagging breasts and stretched areolas and will enjoy many more years of perky, youthful breasts.

No breast surgery can be accomplished without a scar, but your surgeon will place the incision in a position that ensures the scar is concealed by most bras and bikini tops.

In the weeks following your surgery, you may notice that your breasts seem to sit too highly on your chest. That’s normal – your body needs time to heal – and you can expect your breasts to return to their natural shape after a few weeks or months.

Is a Breast Lift Right for Me?

As a general rule, breast lift is best suited to women who have sagging breasts and downward-pointing nipples and areolas. Likewise, if your areolas are stretched out in such a manner that they are out of proportion to each other (or if your nipples fall below your breast crease), a breast lift may be right for you. For the best results, it is important that you do not plan to have children after surgery.
