Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy) is a procedure to rejuvenate breasts which have developed sagging and stretching over time. Lifts can remove excess skin, lift your areolas, and restore breasts to a higher position. Breast lifts can be performed alone or in tandem with breast augmentation with implants or fat grafting. The goal is to restore youthful, round, and perky breasts with the areola at the center of the breast or slightly upturned (45/55 ratio). At the time of your consultation, Dr. Li will analyze your breasts in detail and discuss whether Breast Lift Surgery is a good option for you.

 

Based on the degree of sagging and stretch, different types of lifts may be required to rejuvenate the breasts. Lesser degrees of sagging/stretch can be treated with a circular lift, with scars hidden around the areola ("donut lift"). With more sagging, the addition of a vertical scar (“lollipop lift”) or vertical and horizontal scars underneath the breast (“anchor/T-shaped lift") may be required, as well as internal re-suspension of the breast.
