What Is Mastopexy?

A mastopexy is another name for a breast lift. If you are dissatisfied with the contour of your breasts, you might consider speaking with a plastic surgeon about having a mastopexy in Manhattan. Many women include a mastopexy as part of a mommy makeover, which may also include laser liposuction and a tummy tuck. For example, you could undergo laser liposuction on your hips and abdomen, along with a breast lift to improve skin laxity. Some women also choose to have breast augmentation along with a breast lift.

To perform a mastopexy, the plastic surgeon will make several small incisions. He or she removes excess skin from the area and reshapes the breast tissue. Sometimes, a surgeon may use liposuction under the arm area for visually pleasing results. Then, the surgeon repositions the areola and nipple. Some women may prefer to have the size of the areola reduced. The breast lift does not jeopardize a woman’s ability to breastfeed.
