A breast lift is a popular plastic surgery procedure that can lift and reshape sagging or drooping breasts resulting from pregnancy, weight loss or aging. In conjunction with other procedures such as breast augmentation, a breast lift can give your breasts a firmer, more youthful positioning and appearance.
Dr. Shuster takes an individualized approach to each plastic surgery procedure. In the case of the breast lift, you may choose a breast lift with implants for a look with volume. Alternatively, the results from a breast lift without implants may achieve exactly what you are looking for.

The breast lift, medically known as mastopexy, has been an ideal solution for women who have lost breast volume due to pregnancies or weight loss. A mastopexy is also a common option for women who wish to combat the effects of gravity, at least temporarily, through cosmetic surgery.
Though the breast lift procedure is sometimes done in conjunction with breast augmentation to achieve increased breast size and projection, the origins of breast lift surgery are more consistent with breast reduction surgery to correct the sagging or ptosis that comes with the removal of breast tissue.
Just as every woman has different characteristics and reasons for wanting plastic surgery, there are a number of surgeries that can be performed.
Depending on your situation, Dr. Shuster will use either a concentric or a vertical technique for your breast lift.
The most noticeable result following a breast lift procedure is that your breasts will be fuller and appear shapelier. As with any surgery, however, scarring is a factor and will usually appear as faint lines where the incisions took place. For women who desire breast augmentation, a breast lift may also be performed to help achieve optimal results. Dr. Shuster can work with you to determine what degree or combination of procedures will best help you achieve the look you desire.
No breast lift, however, can keep your breasts firm and/or stationary forever. While breast lift surgery will make a noticeable difference in the appearance of your breasts, the factors which most likely led you to seek a breast lift (e.g., pregnancy, weight changes and gravity) may continue to be factors in future changes to your breasts.
Breast lift surgery requires a certain degree of consultation and discussion to determine not only the best procedure for you, but the degree to which your lifestyle can play in recovery and the ability to retain the effects of the procedure for as long as possible.
