As we age, our body gradually sags, and the breasts can be affected as well. Fortunately, a breast lift (or mastopexy) can restore your breasts’ an attractive and youthful shape.
The goal of a breast lift is to move the nipple and breast tissue to a higher level on your chest so that the nipple will lie at the desired level above the breast fold. The skin below the nipple may be tightened or removed to achieve a more youthful shape.
Depending on your breasts, a breast lift can be done with or without a saline or silicone breast implant for breast enlargement or augmentation. Sometimes, a proper lift may be achieved with placement of an implant alone.
There are many types and approaches to achieve a proper breast lift. The right one for you can be identified at a consultation with Dr. Cho.
