Mastopexy (sometimes referred to as a “breast lift”) is the art of sculpting the breasts to create a more youthful appearance. Breast lift surgery firms up and raises the breasts by tightening tissue that surrounds the breast and by removing excess skin producing a youthful contour and firmness. Weight loss or gain, gravity, breastfeeding and pregnancy as well as heredity can often cause a droopy, soft, flat looking breast. Dr. Terri Halperin specializes in helping woman get back the look and feel they once had in her state of the art cosmetic surgery center in Boston.
Is a Breast Lift Right for Me?
Dr. Halperin will help you determine the right procedure for you. If you are in good health, maintain a stable weight, and have realistic expectations, you may be a good candidate. Woman who are bothered that their nipples point down or that their breasts are “droopy” should set up an appointment to decide if this type of procedure is right for them.
While a breast lift may give you the appearance of a fuller chest, it will not increase the size of your breasts. If you desire a larger cup size, breast augmentation along with a breast lift should be considered. Dr. Halperin can help you to decide if a breast lift will be right for you, or if a combination of breast lift and breast augmentation will better fit your needs.
