Breasts often change their shape and firmness over time. They become droopy due to multiple factors including
- Weight Change
Breast Lift or Mastopexy is a procedure in which a new breast contour is created by tightening the breast tissue and removing the excess skin. In the process the areola is repositioned and resized to a new aesthetically pleasing position. Minimal droopiness may be corrected with implants alone. Following the trend, Breast lift is one of the common plastic Surgery procedures performed by Dr. Sofer at the Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield in Connecticut and in New York.
Breast Lift - Dr. Sofer's approach
In Dr. Sofer's view, There is no "One formula" to correct all breasts. Aesthetically pleasing breasts are a balancing act between volume, the skin envelope and the position of the areola. Once a volume is in place, the skin envelope and the areola repositioning will follow. The consultation is the key to discuss your desired goal specifically in terms of volume and upper pole fullness as that will be the determining factor of the surgical design strategy. Dr. Sofer may suggest addition of implants or removing of breast tissue in order to achieve your desired outcome.
