Woman’s breasts change over time due to numerous factors causing many women to become dissatisfied with their breasts’ shape and firmness. Breasts can gradually become saggy and lose skin elasticity from pregnancy, extreme weight gain or loss, age, and heredity.
As a board certified plastic surgeon with over 25 years experience specializing in breast procedures, Dr. Franklyn Elliott finds that many patients who are discouraged by droopy breasts and lax skin may benefit from breast lift surgery. Mastopexy, more commonly known as breast lift surgery, remedies these unwanted effects by raising the position of sagging breasts. Dr. Elliott then removes excess skin and tightens remaining tissue while reshaping the breasts based on your individual case.
Breast lift surgery can also be combined with other breast procedures including breast augmentation and breast reduction. For patients looking to lift breasts and increase volume, breast implants can used in conjunction with breast lift surgery. For patients looking to decrease sagginess and volume, Dr. Elliott may perform a breast reduction surgery at the same time as lift.
Breast lift surgery is also a common choice for mommy makeover procedures. Pregnancy can alter multiple areas of the body including breasts, abdomen and unwanted fat pockets. Patients may opt to have a breast procedure in combination with other cosmetic treatments such as tummy tuck or liposuction.
