A mastopexy procedure, also known as a breast lift, is a surgical procedure that reshapes sagging breasts. The procedure can reduce size and/or elevate position in a manner that is closer to the patient’s ideals. If you are concerned about excessive sagging of the breasts or a stretched appearance of the nipples, the breast lift can be an ideal solution.
The mastopexy procedure is a surgery that primarily deals with breast sag, also known as breast ptosis. Breast ptosis is generally caused by gravity and becomes worse with aging. As the skin ages and becomes less elastic, the main suspensory ligaments of the breasts weaken. The mastopexy corrects this by surgically removing excess skin and reorienting the nipple-areola complex to a lifted position.
To learn more about mastopexy, consult with Dr. Carl Lentz,a board-certified plastic surgeon.
