As women’s bodies change due to pregnancy or the natural process of aging, their breasts can lose volume, firmness, and skin can become less elastic. During a breast lift (mastopexy), excess skin is removed and the underlying tissue is repositioned to raise the breasts. Lifting the breasts can give them a more youthful appearance and renew a woman’s confidence. The treatment may be ideal after pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss. It can also complement the contour of breast implants to restore a youthful look.
Women may be good candidates for breast lifts if they are physically healthy and maintain their weight, do not smoke, and are unhappy that their breasts have lost shape and volume. Women may also consider treatment when they have downward pointing areolas and nipples, enlarged areolas, one breast that is lower than the other breast, or deflated breasts. Consultations for breast lifts being considered in conjunction with augmentation should be scheduled at the Quincy office where Dr. Broderick can utilize the Mentor sizing system to help determine the increase in breast volume a patient desires. The patient should bring a sports bra and tight fitting t-shirt to the initial consultation.
Average cost: $4,000-$8,000
