Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
A breast lift gives a more youthful appearance by raising the breasts. This is accomplished by removing any excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue in order to reshape the breast and provide contour.
Breast lift surgery will not round out the upper part of your breast or change its size, however it can provide your figure with a more youthful appearance by giving your breasts a more youthful shape, perkiness, and firmness. As you experience different changes in your life, breasts can sag and lose their elasticity and make you feel older than you actually are. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can take a toll on the appearance of your breasts, as can weight fluctuations, and aging.
Many women’s breasts will lose their shape or begin to sag and lose volume. You may want your nipple to be placed in a more pleasing position. Breasts can become more elongated or become pendulous. Sometimes one breast may hang lower than the other. Nipples and areolas can point downward instead of forward. If any of these have happened to you and you want to regain your youthful appearance, then a breast lift may be exactly what you need to get your figure back and feel better about yourself!
There are different types of incisions that can be done to get your desired result. Dr. Won can go over these different procedures with you so that you can make the best decision to achieve beautiful breasts again. Some incisions do result in having scars however these usually diminish greatly over 6-months to a year and become barely noticeable.
After having the procedure, you will see immediate results! Any post-surgery swelling will diminish over time and the results of your breast lift will improve over the next few months as you recover from your procedure.
Time and gravity can continue to affect your breasts, however maintaining your weight and a healthy lifestyle will help your breasts continue to look youthful.
It is important to understand that a breast lift should only be considered after you have had your children. The reason for this is that your breasts can change during pregnancy which can negate the positive effects that a breast lift can provide. Additionally, any significant weight loss (after pregnancy or otherwise) can also affect breast appearance.
Ultimately a breast lift focuses on breast position and contour. If you desire more volume in your breasts as well as a lift, then breast augmentation surgery can be done along with the breast lift. The American Association of Plastic Surgeons offers this video to help explain the results that can be achieved from having a breast lift:

Are you a Candidate for a Breast Lift?
Not everyone is a candidate for cosmetic surgery. If you are in the process of losing weight, it is best to wait until you have reached your goal weight before undergoing any kind of cosmetic procedure. Additionally, if you are still planning on having children, it is best to wait until you have had your child and recovered from the pregnancy. The reason for this is because weight fluctuations can affect the long-lasting benefits that are gained from having cosmetic surgery. Additionally, if you are currently a smoker, you will need to stop completely prior to undergoing any type of procedures since smoking can affect both the healing process and the results gained from a procedure. Also, it is important that you have a positive attitude and a realistic outlook about what surgery can do for you. An unhealthy lifestyle and poor overall health and fitness can wreak havoc on your appearance.
