What Is a Breast Lift?
Over time, breasts tend to drop due to the forces of gravity. Many factors contribute to the development of breast sagging, also called ptosis. Genetics, lifestyle, weight fluctuations, skin elasticity, and pregnancy can all cause breast sagging, and most women have multiple factors that contribute to the problem. A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, is a surgical cosmetic procedure that addresses breast ptosis by removing excess skin, reshaping the breast tissues, and repositioning the breasts higher on the chest wall.

Dr. Bresnick uses several basic techniques to correct breast sagging:
Dr. Bresnick will evaluate your breasts and advise you of what technique will offer the best results in breast lifting. For many patients, a full-lift may be the best choice and allows dramatic shape improvements. This technique, which offers great results, allow the breast to be lifted, recontoured and reshaped. The nipple can be lifted 6 inches or more if necessary. The procedure does require several incisions, including one around the areola, a vertical incision from the bottom of the areola to the breast fold, and an incision in the breast crease. Patients having the full breast lift have been extremely happy with their breast shape improvement, and the breast incisions tend to fade nicely with time.
A breast lift on its own does not dramatically change breast size. Some patients will notice a slightly smaller cup size due to the skin that we remove. A breast lift alone is a great option if you want to stay at a similar breast size. If you want to lift and increase size, opt for a breast augmentation with lift.
