As time passes, pregnancy, nursing, excessive weight loss and gravity have adverse effects on women's breasts causing them to lose their elasticity, firmness, and shape. A breast lift is a procedure that corrects this condition using a combination of removing excess breast tissue and tightening the remaining skin. If desired, implants may be used to restore breasts to their natural shape and size.
The best candidates for a breast lift (Mastopexy) are healthy, emotionally stable women who are realistic about the result they would like to achieve. A breast lift can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence. The best results are achieved on women with small, sagging breasts due to loss of skin elasticity secondary to pregnancy and / or nursing, or weight loss. Those who plan to have more children may want to postpone surgery as the process of pregnancy and breast-feeding may change the final result of the surgery.
Possible complications of the surgery include bleeding and infection which may cause scars to widen, (poor healing and wider scars are common in smokers). The procedure can also leave you with differently positioned nipples or a change in feeling in the nipple or breast.
