With time, gravity, and aging takes a toll on our bodies in various ways. Unfortunately for women, the breast does not hold up as well to the effects of aging, gravity, and pregnancy as you might like. The additional hormone changes that occur with pregnancy can accelerate the breakdown of breast support structures, resulting in droopy, sagging breasts (ptosis). However, there are numerous breast procedures to address this.
Our breast lift procedures (mastopexy) in Fort Worth are designed to restore breasts to a more youthful position. The surgery involves removing excess loose skin, rearranging the breast tissue into a more aesthetic shape, and moving the nipple up higher onto the center of the reshaped breast. In some cases, an implant may be combined with a breast lift, particularly when the woman wants more fullness in the upper breast or overall larger breasts.
Benefits of Breast Lift Surgery include the following:
- Improving symmetry between the breasts
- Reducing large areolas (pigmented skin around the nipple)
- Restoring a firm, sculpted, more youthful breast shape
- Improved self-confidence
