Is Breast Lift Surgery Right for Me?

If addressing sagging breasts is your primary objective, a breast lift may be an ideal solution. If your goal is to attain larger, fuller breasts, breast augmentation surgery may be a more appropriate choice. Depending on your unique goals, Dr. Barnsley may recommend combining your breast augmentation procedure with a mastopexy in order to enhance the size and shape of your breasts while eliminating sagging.

Typically, you may be a good candidate for breast lift surgery if you:

  • Would like to address sagging issues and restore a more youthful breast appearance
  • Have realistic expectations for the outcome of your mastopexy
  • Are in good overall health
  • Don’t smoke or are willing to avoid smoking before your surgery and throughout the duration of your recovery period

The best way to determine if a breast lift is right for you is to meet personally with Dr. Barnsley. During your initial consultation, he will evaluate your physical condition, answer your questions and thoroughly explain all of your treatment options.

Your Mastopexy Procedure

Your breast lift surgery will be a step-wise progression, specifically customized for you, based on your aesthetic goals and unique body type. Dr. Barnsley uses an anchor incision for breast lifts that circles around the areola. There is also a vertical scar coming down to the fold of the breast and a horizontal scar along the fold of the breast.

Once the incisions are performed, Dr. Barnsley can improve the appearance of your breasts by:

  • Removing excess skin and tightening the remaining skin
  • Reshaping the skin and breast mound
  • Repositioning the nipple and areola
