Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

“Beauty is transient and changes with time.” – Aishwariya Rai Bachan

In the course of a woman’s life, her breasts change in size and volume. The suspensory ligaments that suspend the breasts high on the chest can become loose for multiple reasons and cause the sagging of the breasts. Sagging breasts can make women feel really unattractive and have negative impacts on their self-perception. Most female patients who come to Dr. Amiti Shah with sagging breasts have lost all hope of regaining their youthful body contour. She helps to restore their natural breast shapes by expertly performing a breast lift or a Mastopexy. Depending on the shape and size you are looking for and to ensure an aesthetically pleasing finish, Dr. Shah may suggest a full breast makeover by combining a breast lift with a breast augmentation procedure. She reminds her patients that it is your body and she is there to help you meet your goals.

What causes sagging of breasts?

In a young woman with large breasts, sagging occurs due to the weight of the breasts, which is disproportionate to the body type. In a middle-aged woman breast sagging is mostly due to post-pregnancy and breast-feeding changes that occur in the breast tissue. In a post-menopausal woman, besides gravity, the inelasticity of the stretched skin is also a factor causing looseness and sagging of breasts. The same also occurs with women who have lost a significant amount of weight, which affects the fatty tissues in the breasts causing the looseness and sagging appearance.

What is involved in a Mastopexy?

Mastopexy or breast lift is a surgery done for raising the sagging and loose breasts to give them a more youthful appearance. The excess skin is removed and the breast tissues tightened to reshape and give the breasts a firmer appearance. This surgery can be combined with a breast augmentation using silicone gel implants if the patient desires to add volume to her breasts. Sometimes the patient’s own breast tissue can be reassembled to give the extra volume needed for a fuller appearance.
