A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgery to restore saggy breasts. With the passage of time, women discover that their breasts lose that beautiful, youthful perkiness and fullness. Even some young women may have naturally droopy breasts.
What is a Breast Lift Like to Experience?
Before your breast lift, you will undergo a comprehensive physical and medical examination to determine if the surgery is right for you. Dr. Sofonio will also ask you questions about your expectations from the surgery. Based on the outcome of his examination, he will decide on the best way to proceed with your breast lift surgery.
During the procedure, you will be under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Breast lift surgery, when under the care of Dr. Sofonio, is 100 percent customized. The technique Dr. Sofonio chooses depends on the degree of sagging, your breast shape and size, position and size of the areolas, and your level of skin elasticity.
He will make an incision to allow him to reshape and lift underlying tissue to improve the shape of the breasts. Excess skin is removed to allow your breasts to be restored to a more youthful, elevated position on the chest wall. For many women, the nipple structure is relocated to be centered on the newly reshaped breast mound. This technique adds to the beauty of the final result.
