Breast Lift

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin around the breast and tightens the tissue, effectively lifting the breast and giving it a firmer feel. Over time a woman’s breasts lose their youthful firmness and shapely appearance; decreased skin elasticity causes the breasts to droop and sag.  The areola may become enlarged as well. Aging, gravity and genetics are the primary causes of these changes, but pregnancy and weight fluctuation are also contributing factors. Fortunately, breast lift surgery performed by Dr. Stoker can reverse much of the unwanted sagging and restore a more youthful, “perky” appearance to the breasts.

Breast Lift: What it is NOT

A breast lift does not change the size of your breasts significantly nor will it round out the breast the way breast augmentation would. However, you can combine the breast lift and breast augmentation procedures if you want your breasts to be both lifted and fuller. Conversely, if you feel your breasts are too large – which is common in cases of drooping or pendulous breasts -you might consider doing a breast lift in tandem with breast reduction surgery.  It is important to remember that breast lift surgery, as with any cosmetic procedure, is a highly personal choice, and the decision to have it should be yours alone not for the benefit of someone else.

Breast Lift-The ideal candidate

You are an ideal candidate for a breast lift procedure if you are:

  • A non- smoker
  • Physically healthy
  • At a relatively stable (non-fluctuating) weight.
  • Unhappy with your breasts because they sag and have lost their shape and volume or one breast is lower than the other
  • Experiencing problems with pendulous breasts or downward-pointing nipples
