What Does a Mastopexy Correct?
For many women, their breasts are essential to their overall beauty and confidence. But because of age, breastfeeding, and fluctuating weight, breasts and nipples can sag and droop. If you want to restore your breasts to their youthful and lifted position, a breast lift, or mastopexy, may solve your problem.
A mastopexy corrects sagging breasts and nipples
Mastopexy surgery addresses breast ptosis or sagging by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding breast tissue. Doing so restores the breasts' firm, perky appearance, creating a more shapely silhouette. A breast lift also reshapes the nipple to a more desirable position.
Mastopexy reshapes the breasts and enhances firmness
A breast lift reshapes your breasts for a more symmetrical and pleasing contour. While a breast lift doesn’t add volume but reshapes your natural tissue, Dr. Alizadeh can add implants for larger breast sizes and higher positions.
Your body produces less estrogen as you age, which is the hormone that helps breast tissue grow. The result is that your mammary glands get smaller, and fat may collect, making your breasts softer. A breast lift resolves this problem by removing excess tissue to improve elasticity and firmness.
Will my breasts sag after a breast lift?
A breast lift can correct moderate to heavy breast sagging, and the results are generally considered permanent, lasting approximately ten years. However, how long the breast lift will last depends on factors including:
- Whether you gain or lose weight
Remember that because a breast lift does not slow the aging process, your breasts will drop years after a breast lift because the aging process has continued. You can extend the length of your results by:
- Caring for your skin
- Avoiding a lift until you are done breastfeeding
- Avoiding sunbathing, which destroys skin elasticity
Doctor Alizadeh's Signature NaturaBra™
After years of experience doing traditional breast lifts, board-certified New York City plastic surgeon, Dr. Alizadeh, developed an upgraded procedure that minimizes scarring and maximizes results.
The NaturaBra™ surgical technique creates internal support using your tissue to create an inner bra, giving the breasts a more youthful and lifted appearance that lasts. This technique makes short incisions from each nipple to the breast crease and creates a triangular flap of skin on each breast. This flap, which remains attached to an essential blood supply, is then carefully rotated and placed inside the breast to form a natural inner bra that will support a woman's breasts for the rest of her life.
This inner bra, anchored to the rib cage for stability and longevity, resembles an internal support hammock for the breast and is the primary reason Dr. Alizadeh has achieved such positive, lasting outcomes. Dr. Alizadeh's NaturaBra™ technique also mitigates the need for an extra incision on the breast, which is why many of our satisfied patients call it the most natural and nearly scarless breast lift.
Dr. Alizadeh’s NaturaBra™ breast lift can restore the perky bounce of your breasts, allowing them to look younger and more attractive, and has several benefits and desirable results:
- Reduces the size of the areolas if they have become enlarged over time
- Creates a more shapely look
- It makes uneven breasts more proportionate
- Corrects drooping nipples
- Creates more cleavage
- Improves body proportions between breast and buttocks
- Allows clothing to fit better
- Creates more projected breasts
