Breast Lift / Mastopexy
Performed by Dr. Elliott in Atlanta & Alpharetta GA
Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is performed by Dr. Franklyn Elliott at his Atlanta and Alpharetta, GA practice locations to address sagging breasts and restore them to a more youthful position. Women may experience breast sagging due to several factors including pregnancy, breast feeding, weight loss, aging and genetics.
During breast lift surgery, Dr. Elliott removes excess skin and tightens and reshapes the remaining breast tissue. It’s important to note that breast lift surgery does not change the size of one’s breasts; however, breast augmentation can be combined with a breast lift procedure to enhance volume and raise breasts. Breast lift surgery can also be part of mommy makeover surgery. Dr. Elliott will discuss with each patient realistic expectations for breast lift results to find the best technique for their unique needs. Below are FAQs about breast lift surgery and before and after photos performed by Dr. Elliott.
Am I a good candidate for breast lift surgery?
If you have lost shape and volume in your breasts and are in good health, you may be a good candidate for breast lift surgery. Individuals who have elongated breasts, downward pointed nipples, enlarged areolas and/or stretched skin may also benefit from breast lift surgery.
What kind of scars can I expect from breast lift surgery?
As with any surgical procedure, scarring can be expected. However, Dr. Elliott uses the most advanced techniques and progressive suturing to minimize breast surgery scarring. Post-operative scar treatment care is also important in healing and fading scars over time.
Will a breast lift change the size of my breasts?
Breast lift surgery will not change the size of your breasts. Breast lift surgery can, however, make breasts appear more firm and lifted. A breast lift can also adjust the position of the areolas and nipples.
