Breastfeeding, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and gravity can cause breasts to stretch and sag. Many patients are often self-conscious about sagging breasts or downward-pointing nipples, which may affect their body confidence.
For these patients, a breast lift may just be the solution to restoring their youthful breasts. At the Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brenman can use breast lift techniques to significantly improve the appearance of your breasts.
What is a Breast Lift (Mastopexy)?
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical approach that Dr. Brenman uses to address sagging breasts. With breast lift techniques, Dr. Brenman can lift the breasts and bring them to a perkier, more even position. By performing a mastopexy, Dr. Brenman may also help patients feel more confident about their new breast area and fit better into their clothes. This procedure takes about two to three hours to complete.
How Does a Breast Lift Work?
At the Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Brenman will create a customized treatment plan based on your specific needs and cosmetic goals. He will examine your breasts to determine the right surgical techniques to use during the procedure. Depending on your breast lift goals, he may carefully place incisions around the areolas. During the procedure, he may remove excess skin and tighten breast tissue to achieve your aesthetic goals.
What Can I Expect From a Breast Lift?
There are many benefits that patients may enjoy after a breast lift. After their mastopexy, patients may notice dramatic improvements, including higher, tighter, and more rounded breasts. Additionally, they may see visible nipples and a younger-looking chest appearance.
Additionally, you may have a larger breast size if you decide to pair your breast lift with a breast augmentation. Breast lifts may also eliminate any irritation you may feel under saggy breasts. With excess skin gone, you may experience some relief from the weight of sagging breasts.
The duration of your breast lift results may last a decade or more. Some may need another breast revision in a few years. However, the longevity of your results will depend on weight changes and how well you take care of your skin. Your results may also change with age.
You can maintain your results by keeping a stable weight with a diet and physical activity. Moreover, you may want to moisturize your breast area with collagen-boosting skincare products to prevent sagging and keep your breasts firm.

Who is a Candidate for a Breast Lift?
The best candidates for a breast lift are non-smokers in good health. Moreover, mastopexy candidates may wish to correct downward-facing nipples and saggy, asymmetrical breasts. Moreover, breast lifts may be a good option for patients who are ready for surgery with some downtime and who have realistic expectations about the procedure. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Brenman to find out if a breast lift is right for you.
