Ft. Lauderdale Breast Lift
Breast Lift (Mastopexy) removes excess stretched skin, reshapes the breasts and lifts the nipples to a higher position. There are many reasons for having a breast lift. Women find as they mature the forces of gravity take over; or after pregnancy, breasts begin to droop, sag and lose shape. The medical terms for this sagging condition is "ptosis." Or perhaps the upper portions of your breasts have simply lost their fullness and projection. The goal of a breast lift is to make your breasts look perkier, fuller and more youthful.

Breast Lift Approaches
Our surgical team takes one of several approaches during breast lift surgery. The "anchor lift" involves an incision that goes around the areola, extends from the bottom of the areola down to the breast crease and horizontally beneath the breast. The "lollipop lift" requires an incision around the areola running vertically down the breast. The "donut lift" (or "Benelli lift") involves an incision around the perimeter of the areola. Each approach can create beautiful results, and the surgeon can help you decide which method will best benefit your desires and needs.
Combination Breast Lift/Breast Augmentation
It is important to understand that a breast lift by itself does not enlarge the breasts. If you desire or need enlargement, you might opt for breast augmentation conducted at the same time as your breast lift. Breast enlargement is particularly helpful in filling out the upper portions of your breasts. Combination breast lift / augmentation is popular among new mothers who feel their breasts have "deflated" after pregnancy or breastfeeding. It's also a great option for women who have lost significant amounts of weight through weight loss surgery and are left with saggy skin and not a lot of breast tissue. If you feel you will benefit from an enlargement and a lift, discuss both options fully with your Fort Lauderdale cosmetic surgeon.
Breast Lift Benefits and Risks
As with any surgery, it's critical to look at all factors, including the risks and benefits, before making a decision. Patients who are informed and have reasonable expectations of surgery are often the happiest with the outcomes.
Benefits include a younger-looking figure and more confidence in social and professional settings. Risks include anesthesia-related complications, infection, abnormal scarring and loss of sensation in the nipples or breasts. Though our surgeons are board-certified and very experienced, surgery has inherent risks that the patient should understand completely before scheduling their breast lift.
