The sagginess of the breasts that occurs with age or due to considerable weight fluctuation is an imperfection of the breasts that can bother many women, especially after a certain age. Even teenage girls can be suffering from breast ptosis if they have overly large breasts. To get rid of the sagginess and to elevate the breasts to a normal position on the chest wall, the breast lift is recommended. The breast lift is also known as mastopexy in medical terms, and the procedure entails numerous benefits for the patient.

First, let’s see what happens when a breast lift is performed. The patient will be put under general anesthesia and the plastic surgeon will make incisions on the breasts according to the surgical plan that was discussed and agreed with the patient during the initial consultation. Once the incisions are made, the skin is detached from the glandular tissue, and this tissue is concentrated to a more elevated position. The skin is re-draped on the new re-centered glandular tissue, and the excess skin is removed. The incisions are sutured and the procedure is complete. 

Before scheduling their breast lift, many patients want to discuss the benefits of the procedure in detail. 

The main goal is to elevate the breasts on the chest wall. However, there are other multiple benefits, one of the most important is the aesthetic benefit. The breasts will look firmer, perkier and more alluring after the breast lift. Moreover, many patients choose to undergo this procedure after reaching a certain age for the rejuvenation benefits of mastopexy. What does this mean? In other words, the breasts will look more youthful, giving the patient an overall rejuvenated image. This is a major benefit for women who had multiple pregnancies or considerable weight fluctuations and have lost the beautiful shape and the perkiness of the breasts early in life. The breast lift allows for a rejuvenation of the breasts. 

After the procedure, the patient won’t have to suffer due to the empty appearance of the breasts. Breast ptosis often causes the breasts to look like empty bags with no upper pole fullness.

It is also important to mention that the shape and volume of the breasts won’t be significantly changed after the procedure, and for patients desiring an ampler transformation of the breasts, it is possible to combine the breast lift with a breast reduction and even breast implants. Make sure to discuss your aesthetic goals with the plastic surgeon during the pre-operative consultation. Nowadays, mastopexy with implants is a very popular procedure preferred by patients who want to get the benefits of both perky but also larger breasts all in one sitting.
