Do I Really Need a Lift?

A mastopexy or the more commonly used term is a breast lift, is performed to improve the appearance of breasts. Today there is so much talk of breast augmentation that many think that this is the only way to enhance your breasts. However, you can enhance the volume of your breasts with a breast augmentation, reverse sagging with a breast lift or mastopexy or have an augmentation/implants placed as well as a breast lift at the same time.

A mastopexy or breast lift can sound a little scary at first especially when most are apprehensive about scars.  A breast augmentation or placement of implants does not address sagging breasts that can occur after pregnancy, nursing, weight fluctuations, and gravity can all play a part in sagging of the breasts. A breast lift addresses sagging, droopy and at times can address asymmetries by rearranging natural breast tissue to give a more youthful appearance. A breast lift doesn’t give more fullness to the breasts, however adding a breast implant can help add fullness.

There are a couple of different ways a breast lift can be performed. One technique is by making an incision around the areola, as known as a peri areolar lift and lifting the areola to a more youthful appearance. This is only possible if a women’s breasts are only a little bit droopy. A breast implant can be placed at the same time as a peri areolar lift. Incisions are concealed along the edge of the areola.

Another technique is what’s called a wise pattern mastopexy. This is required when breasts are saggy and droopy. By using this technique of a wise pattern technique breasts are perkier and more youthful in appearance.
