As we age, our skin losses elasticity. As it related to female body, breasts tend to lose their shape and firmness, and may begin to sag. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure used to reshape and raise sagging breasts without altering the overall size.
Most woman who undergo the procedure report firmer, higher and more youthful looking breasts following the procedure, in addition to increased self confidence.
San Francisco plastic surgeon Dr. Shahin Javaheri can educate you about the breast lift procedure, and put together a surgical plan that will achieve your personal goals.
Occasionally a breast lift is combined with a breast augmentation for women who want to increase the size of their breasts, in addition to lifting and firming of the breasts.
The best candidates for mastopexy woman who are healthy yet suffering from sagging breasts due to natural aging, past pregnancies, or rapid weight fluctuations.
While it shouldn’t interfere with future pregnancies or feeding, the results of the surgery may be reversed if the same factors that led to the sagging are re-introduced.
