A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to lift sagging breasts in order to create a firmer breast and restore a more youthful appearance. There are a number of factors that contribute to sagging breasts, the most common is time and the aging process, gravity, weight fluctuations, or pregnancy. This is a very common procedure performed by Dr. Barber. In some cases, breast implants may also be placed at the time of the lift if breasts are small or if they have lost fullness due to repeated pregnancy or simply the aging process.
During the confidential consultation with Dr. Barber, he will discuss your specific surgical needs, implants where appicable, the potential risk of the surgery, and answer any questions that you have specific to your case.
