There are also techniques to lift the breasts which may be performed alone or along with breast augmentation, again, depending on your personal goals. Breast lift, or mastopexy, tighten a drooping breast by removing excess skin only. A very new technique uses an absorbable mesh to lift the breast like an “internal bra” but has a very limited clinical experience.
American Society of Plastic Surgeons statistics show breast lifts have grown 70% since 2000, outpacing breast implants 2-to-1.
A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted.
Breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from many things such as:
- Weight fluctuations
A breast lift surgery won’t:
Significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast.
Want your breasts to look fuller, consider breast lift and breast augmentation surgery.
Want smaller breasts, consider combining breast lift and breast reduction surgery.
