Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a type of breast surgery that addresses ptosis (sagging) of breast tissue. With breast lift surgery, Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can greatly improve the appearance of breasts that have begun to sag due to factors such as aging, genetics, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy and nursing.
If your breasts have lost their youthful appeal, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center or call 855-813-7077 to schedule a breast lift consultation with triple board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michal Eisemann. We help patients in and around Houston and from throughout the country.
The Breast Lift Procedure
There are four primary breast lift incisions:
- The crescent – made at the top of the areola, the crescent incision is ideal for minor ptosis
- The donut – also made in the dark skin of the areola, the donut incision extends around the nipple to address mild to moderate ptosis
- The lollipop – using the same circumferential incision as the donut, the lollipop incision extends from the areola down to the breast crease, making it better suited to correct moderate ptosis
- The anchor – for more pronounced ptosis, the anchor incision may be best. This incision in the same as the lollipop, but extends the length of the breast crease as well
Once the proper breast lift incision has been made, Dr. Eisemann will lift underlying tissue and remove unnecessary skin to produce a firmer and perkier appearance. The nipple may also be moved to a higher location to ensure natural-looking and highly attractive results.
Breast lift surgery is often combined with breast augmentation to address both ptosis and symmetry. Breast lift surgery can also be combined with breast reduction if you are experiencing significant sagging caused by overly large or heavy breasts.
