Breast lifts, technically known as mastopexies, are a sophisticated cosmetic surgery that can correct extreme sagging and misalignment of the breasts. However, each procedure can vary from patient to patient. There are a lot of factors to consider such as age, body type, skin elasticity and the patient’s goals.
Knowing some basics about the various available techniques will help you understand and communicate your goals. The first step that a board-certified, experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Carl Lentz will take is to evaluate your specific situation. Conservative, limited surgery is usually ideal since it leaves minimal scarring. The degree of lift will take into account the type of pedicle that would be most appropriate. A pedicle – superior, inferior and medial – is tissue that will deliver blood and oxygen to the reformed breast.
