Breast Lift in Sarasota

Print This PageEmail this Page

Our doctors are renowned for their delicate touch and aesthetic eye for balance and symmetry. This artistic sensibility is critical to all successful plastic surgery. A breast lift at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center can give you an enhanced silhouette and firmer, younger looking breasts. The experience and training of our board-certified plastic surgeons is a huge asset in a patient's quest for a natural result.

Technically called mastopexy, a breast lift gently lifts and reshapes the breasts. There is a wide variability in breast size and shape among women. Women tend to lose support of the breast tissue from age, childbirth, changes in weight or other causes. The procedure is designed to lift the breast tissue and reposition the nipple in a more aesthetically pleasing position. When combined with breast enlargement (augmentation mastopexy) the breasts are not only lifted and reshaped, but also enlarged.

There are several different types of breast lifts. A mini-lift or periareolar breast lift may be appropriate for a woman with a small amount of breast sagging. Other women with more significant sagging may require a full breast lift.

During your consultation, your surgeon will determine if a breast lift is necessary and recommend the appropriate procedure for you. He will describe the surgery, as well as its benefits and risks.

Are You a Good Candidate?

To be a good candidate for any plastic surgery, you must have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for you. It's important to understand that breast lift can enhance your appearance and self-confidence but, like all plastic surgery, it is not going to solve underlying emotional issues you may have. Always think carefully about your expectations and discuss any concerns you have with your surgeon.
