What is Mastopexy?

Mastopexy is the medical name for a breast lift. A breast lift is a procedure in which excess skin is removed from your breasts and they are lifted into a firmer, more youthful position. Due to pregnancy and breast feeding, as well as age and the inevitable effects of gravity, your breasts may begin to sag over time. When you begin to feel uncomfortable with the appearance of your breasts or find your clothing options limited, Naples plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña can customize a breast lift procedure that will bring your upper body back into perfect symmetry with the rest of your frame.

Mastopexy with Augmentation

Many of the factors that can cause your breasts to sag can also cause them to lose volume. During your initial consultation, Dr. Peña will carefully assess your desires, as well as your entire frame and may suggest combining a breast lift with breast augmentation. When these procedures are combined, you can enjoy a much more defined and younger-looking profile. There is a procedure where the “Fallen” breast tissue below can be “brought up” and “tucked” under the upper breast tissue and acts as your own implant.

Both the breast lift and breast augmentation are popular choices for a mommy makeover, a procedure used to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy beauty. Dr. Peña will work with you closely to help you determine the procedure or combination of procedures that will best help you achieve your desired look.
