Do I Need a Breast Lift?
If you are dismayed with the appearance of your breasts, a breast lift may be the right surgical procedure to restore that perky, youthful profile. Patients who choose breast lift surgery are dealing with one or more of the following situations:
- Sagging, droopy, or pendulous breasts
- Loss of volume after breastfeeding
- Breasts that appear deflated or flat
- Breasts that lost volume due to weight loss
- Loss of firmness
- Downward facing areolas
- Breasts that have dropped to a lower position due to loss of skin elasticity
You Have Options: Breast Lift Surgery
During a breast lift procedure, excess skin is removed and breasts are tightened and lifted. A breast lift procedure does not change the size of the breasts; breast augmentation can be performed in conjunction with a breast lift in cases in which loss of breast volume has occurred, or when a patient wants larger breasts. Your Athenix plastic surgeon will carefully take measurements and discuss the various types of breast lift procedures to determine which approach will achieve the most attractive, balanced, and youthful look.
Transform Your Body and Restore a Youthful Breast Profile
Many women are dismayed at the saggy, droopy condition of their breasts, and choose to have a breast lift to restore a more youthful appearance. Each patient has unique goals, and is dealing with a specific condition that they want to resolve. Saggy breasts are common, and even have a clinical name: “breast ptosis.” There are varying degrees of the condition, each requiring a specific surgical treatment plan. A full evaluation of your breasts is necessary to determine which procedure will bring about the most attractive result for you. We offer a free consultation so you can find out about the technique that our medical professionals could employ in your case. If you are unhappy with the saggy appearance of your breasts and considering a breast lift, we are here to help.

Breast Lift with Breast Augmentation
Many women choose to have two procedures: a breast lift in conjunction with breast augmentation. A combination of the two procedures may be necessary for women with reduced breast volume, irregular or oddly-shaped breasts, or breasts that have become deflated in appearance after breastfeeding a baby. Others may only require a breast lift. Each treatment plan is customized for the patient, and we believe it is vital that the women we treat have realistic expectations about what can be achieved through breast lift surgery.
Mastopexy: Breast Lift Surgery
A breast lift, or “mastopexy” is a procedure that reverses the effects of time, gravity, weight loss, and breastfeeding takes on the bust. Young breasts sit high on the chest, and give a lovely, youthful profile. As time and gravity take their toll, the skin tissue that keeps the breasts elevated loses elasticity, causing the skin to stretch and the breasts to droop to a lower position on the chest. As breasts begin to sag, the breast tissue itself can change in shape from a perky, rounded appearance to a flattened, shrunken or deflated look.
A breast lift raises the breast back to their original youthful position. During the procedure, it may be necessary to change the position of the nipples so that they are located correctly. Our surgeons have advanced skills, and focus upon keeping scarring to a minimum. The type of incisions used to resolve sagging breasts will vary, based upon the current condition and location of the breasts and nipples.
