Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is a popular cosmetic procedure that firms, raises and reshapes sagging breasts. It is one of the many procedures offered at the Cosmetic Surgery Center at UMass Memorial Medical Center to improve your natural contours while honoring your unique characteristics.
Many women choose to have breast lift surgery at the same time they get breast implants, to enhance the firmness as well as the size and shape of the breast. Others, who are not concerned with size but lack of volume, have the procedure done alone.
Because breast lift surgery is more extensive than breast augmentation (implants) alone, it can leave more noticeable scars. The surgeon uses the skin above the nipple to reshape the breast from below. The goal is higher and firmer breasts. The results can be quite remarkable.
If you are considering the surgery for yourself, be sure to do your research. It is important that the physician you choose is a board-certified plastic surgeon you trust and who makes you feel most comfortable. It is best to have any surgery done at a medical center like UMass Memorial where you will find a trained staff of anesthesiologists, nurses and support team.
