If you have ever stood in front of a mirror and wished that your breasts were firmer, more correctly positioned and more youthful looking, breast lift surgery may be a good option for you. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure by restoring breast shape that is often lost through childbearing, weight loss or natural aging.
In breast lift surgery, also called mastopexy, the breasts are raised, the nipples are repositioned and the areolas (the darker skin around the nipples) may be reduced in size. If you have lost breast volume over the years and you want to add more fullness, implants may be inserted during breast lift surgery to increase breast size, a combination surgery called augmentation-mastopexy.
The goal of breast reconstruction is to create a soft, natural-looking breast for a woman who must undergo breast removal due to cancer or other disease. Whether it is performed immediately following mastectomy or at a later time, breast reconstruction can dramatically improve a woman’s appearance, self-confidence and overall quality of life. Breast reconstruction is recognized as medically necessary by insurance companies including adjustment of the other breast for symmetry, when necessary. Depending on the needs and desires of the patient, the breast can be reconstructed from natural tissue (often using tissue from the lower abdomen ) or by using an implant technique. The best procedure and timing will be discussed with you by the providers during your consultation.
