About breast lift (mastopexy)…
A breast lift (mastopexy) is a surgical procedure to raise drooping breasts and reduce the size of an enlarged areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. In most cases, the procedure is done in conjunction with saline or silicone-gel filled implants to add firmness and projection to the breasts. Without the insertion of an implant to add fullness, the breast can still droop; it merely does so higher on the chest. Likewise, attempting to correct a significantly sagging breast using an implant alone, without removing breast skin or elevating the nipple, would be like putting a ball in a sock.
Breast life surgery is most often considered by women in their late 30s to early 50s who desire firmer, shapelier and more youthful looking breasts. The ideal candidate is a woman who wants the operation for herself to counter the affects that pregnancy, nursing, weight fluctuation, gravity and/or natural aging have had on the appearance of her breast. A women’s self esteem is often a large factor considered when choosing any cosmetic procedure.
