If you are looking to improve the position, contour or overall appearance of your breasts, a mastopexy, commonly known as a breast lift, may be your solution. A breast lift is ideal if you’re breasts have lost the youthful elasticity from weight loss or gain, pregnancy, age or genetics.
This page gives you some basic information about breast lift surgery, but it cannot answer specific questions or make individualized recommendations. For more detailed information customized to your situation, please call (970) 624-7979 to schedule a complimentary consultation with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Denis Gonyon. Our AAAASF certified surgical facility at the intersection of I-25 and US 34 serves patients from Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, Northern Colorado and beyond.
What Does a Breast Lift Procedure Do?
The purpose of a breast lift is to lift the breast to help restore a more youthful, uplifting appearance to your breasts. By assessing your frame, body size and your natural contours, Dr. Gonyon will determine the extent of the breast lift you need.
If volume, as well as lift, is what you desire, Dr. Gonyon may recommend combining a breast lift with breast augmentation. When combined, a breast lift and augmentation can restore size, shape and contour to your upper body in a single surgery.
What Happens During a Breast Lift?
A breast lift procedure is performed by making incisions on and around your breasts depending on the type of mastopexy. There are three options for a breast lift depending on the incisions made:
- Peri-Areolar, an oval incision is made around the nipple
- Lollipop, same as a peri-areolar lift with an oval incision made around the nipple and a vertical incision down to the fold of the breast, and
- Inverted-T or Anchor, the same as a lollipop lift, yet the incision is continued along the fold of the breast.
Once the incisions have been made, Dr. Gonyon can tighten the skin around the nipple to enhance placement for a more youthful position, and then if necessary, will tighten any excess skin to create a better hold for the breast tissue, thus creating the lift you desire.
