About this procedure

It seems any surgery related to the breast is typically referred to as breast surgery, breast augmentation, or a boob job. However, there are various surgeries, all which accomplish different things.

A breast lift is a surgical procedure known as a mastopexy, which corrects breasts that are drooping, and restores them to an attractive, natural position.

Drooping or sagging breasts are common, and frequently cause women to be self-critical. This drooping, or ptosis, can occur after childbearing, with the post-partum reduction of glandular tissue, and the relaxation of the suspensory ligaments of the breast. It can also occur following weight loss, and sometimes, it can simply be the result of a patient’s natural development.

Many associate a breast lift with either a breast augmentation, or a breast reduction, and may think the surgeries are synonymous. They aren’t.

While a breast reduction is required for patients with overly large breasts, when the volume is right a breast lift may simply require the removal of excess skin in order to provide a more desirable appearance. A woman may decide to have breast implants inserted at the same time as a breast lift (augmentation/mastopexy) when conditions are right.

At Fairbanks Plastic Surgery Center, we combine art and medical science to produce beautiful and natural looking breast lift results. We also maintain our own state-of-the-art operation room to help reduce the cost of breast lift surgery. We would be happy to meet with you to discuss these procedures and share with you our breast lift experience, and answer any questions you may have.

Things to Avoid in Breast Lift or Mastopexy

Certain “quickie” breast lift procedures characteristically result in unfavorable results, such as the widening, stretching, or puckering of your nipples, having your nipples end up in the wrong place, or receiving abnormally shaped breasts. These procedures should be avoided.

Your goal should be to achieve the most natural result possible.  Unfortunately, there are “breast-lift” procedures which can be done quickly, but fail to achieve a natural appearance.  If you have undergone a breast-lift or mastopexy, and achieved a less than desirable appearance, be sure to call the office and make an appointment to come in for an consultation/evaluation.  We may be able to help you.
