Loss of skin elasticity, gravity and other factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding ultimately affect the shape and firmness of breasts. Patients satisfied with the size of their breasts can address these changes by undergoing a mastopexy, often referred to as a “breast lift“. A mastopexy can restore a youthful, perky appearance. Some patients, however, may be unhappy with the loss in volume, or breast size, that often accompanies sagging. In such cases, breast implants in conjunction with a breast lift can help deliver a little more fullness along with improved shape.

You may be a good candidate for mastopexy if you have one or more of the following conditions:

-breasts that are sagging
-breasts that lack firmness, or appear “deflated”
-nipples that are too low or point downward

Apart from addressing the above changes, breast asymmetries (size, shape, nipple position) can be corrected.

A breast lift (mastopexy) is usually performed only once breast development has ended, with some exceptions. While some women opt to have a breast lift after experiencing the changes associated with pregnancy and breast-feeding, many decide to undergo the procedure at a younger age. Since the milk ducts and nipples are left intact, breast lift surgery usually will not affect your ability to breast-feed. Dr. Schwarz will be able to discuss with you the type of breast lift you are best suited for and whether or not implants should be considered.
