Breast LiftYou don't have to change your size, just your happiness.
Finding a balance.
Many of our breast lift patients come to us after having their last child; giving birth to children can change your figure in ways you never expected. Other patients experience loss of fullness and drooping as a result of aging, or following significant weight loss. If the balance you’re looking at has changed, breast lift (mastopexy) may be the procedure to look into.
For many women the size, shape, or contour of their breasts does not fit their self image. Women experience increased breast skin laxity, drooping (ptotic) breasts, and loss of upper breast fullness following pregnancy and breast feeding, with aging and the force of gravity, or after significant weight loss. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to elevate and reshape the breast to produce a youthful appearance. The major focus of a breast lift is to lift the nipple-areolar complex and centralize it over the breast mound, reduce the size of the areola, and shape the breast by reducing and tightening the breast skin with little or no change in breast volume.
A breast lift may be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation if the breasts are small or have lost volume. The aesthetic concerns in breast lift surgery are more demanding than in breast reduction surgery, with more importance being placed on issues related to scar length and breast shape. The best results are usually achieved in women with small, sagging breasts. Breasts of any size can be lifted, but the results may not last as long in heavy breasts.
A Breast Augmentation can help restore lost volume.
Breast Augmentation with Silicone Gel Implants & Breast Lift
This 39 yo woman (5´7″ | 154 lbs) was unhappy with the loss of breast fullness and drooping she experienced following two pregnancies, breast feeding, and weight loss. She has two children which she nursed for one year, and she lost 40 pounds in the year prior to surgery. Her pre-operative breast size was a C-cup. Examination demonstrated moderate breast skin laxity and volume loss with grade III ptosis. Three month post-operative photographs show the results following a bilateral dual plane-I, subpectoral breast augmentation with Natrelle moderate profile, smooth, round 371cc silicone gel-filled implants; and a Wise pattern breast lift was performed for additional shaping. Post-operative bra size is a full D-cup.

Breast Lift with a small Breast Reduction
29 year old woman (5’5″ | 125 lbs) who had breast asymmetry; the right breast was smaller than the left breast. Her pre-operative breast size was a 36-C cup. She has two children, but did not breast-feed. She was unhappy with the difference between her right and left breast, as well as the drooping shape, but did not want to significantly change her current breast size. The right breast was mildly smaller than the left; 53gr of breast tissue was removed from the right breast, and 109gr of breast tissue was removed form the left breast, followed by a Wise pattern breast lift. Photographs taken three and one-half months after surgery show the result of a symetrical post-operative 36B/C-cup size.
