Women who have lost lift and volume from their breasts due to age, pregnancy, and other changes to the body may desire a more youthful look. In a situation such as this, Dr. Thomas Wiener and his team in Houston, Texas may recommend procedures such as the breast lift. Also known as a mastopexy, the breast lift can restore elevation and shape to the female breast when breast ptosis occurs.
What is breast ptosis?
Breast ptosis is the medical term for breasts that appear deflated, soft, or sagging. This can be due to a variety of different issues, including:
- Weight fluctuations
When breast ptosis occurs, many women feel self-conscious about their appearance and want to seek a cosmetic procedure that restores their youthful appearance and confidence. This is achieved with a breast lift procedure.
What does the breast lift accomplish?
The breast lift is customized based on the patient’s current situation and their desires. In many instances, the breasts are elevated higher up on the chest to achieve a more youthful position. The nipple and areola are resized or repositioned to ensure they are in the most natural position. Excess breast skin and tissue may be removed, and for some patients, the placement of implants is beneficial in restoring the volume and shape women once had. Breast augmentation with implants is the only way to restore volume and improve or enhance the shape, and is commonly performed in conjunction with the breast lift procedure.
Who is a candidate for the breast lift procedure?
Adult women who are dealing with sagging or drooping breasts with lost volume will find that the breast lift procedure is appropriate for achieving their desired appearance. Dr. Thomas Wiener will evaluate a patient in his office to determine if they are a good fit for this or other breast enhancement procedures available at his facility.
