BREAST LIFT: HOW TO DECIDE IF YOU NEED ONE?

A breast lift (or mastopexy) is a plastic surgery procedure that lifts and reshapes sagging breasts. Dr. Bivik Shah performs this safe and effective surgery to help patients achieve life-changing results.

If you have mild breast sag, you may only need breast augmentation with implants to fill and tighten your breasts. However, if you have moderate to severe breast sag, you may need a breast lift with or without implants to change the position of your nipple and areola and remove excess skin.

A breast lift with implants can give you more size, projection, and perkiness. A breast lift without implants can give you a more youthful shape without increasing your size.

BREAST LIFT: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

A breast lift (or mastopexy) is a safe and routine surgery that Dr. Bivik Shah performs to lift and reshape sagging breasts. However, like any surgery, it has some risks that you should be aware of.

Some possible risks of breast lift surgery are infection, bleeding, poor scarring, loss of sensation, or loss of nipple and areola. These are rare and can be prevented or treated by Dr. Shah and his team.

To find out if you have breast sag, try this simple test: Stand in front of a mirror and place a pencil under your breast crease. If your nipple and areola are below the pencil, you have breast sag. If they are above the pencil, you don’t.

If you are not sure if you need a breast lift, Dr. Shah will help you decide the best option for you. He will also tell you the cost of the surgery, which depends on the technique, the tissue removal, the anesthesia, and the time.
