Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Breast Lift

If you feel self-conscious because your breasts have deflated and lost their shape, firmness or perky position, you might be a good candidate for a breast lift, also known as mastopexy.

Pregnancy, breast feeding, or shifts in body weight can cause the skin of your breasts to stretch or droop, losing their fullness. Some women are happy with a mastopexy alone. Others would like a bit more volume. If you are looking for more volume in the breasts, implants can be used at the time of mastopexy. If you have enough breast volume, a mastopexy alone can restore your chest back to natural looking, perky breasts.

Breast Lift Surgery

Before breast lift surgery, Dr. Wendel will evaluate your breasts to find the degree of lift needed. Once he has determined the number and length of incisions necessary, Dr. Wendel will perform the surgery in Nashville using anesthesia in a fully accredited surgical facility. Surgery is expected to take 1-2 hours and is an outpatient procedure.

Mastopexy surgery may involve minimal or several incisions that create flaps where the excess skin is removed. The nipple and areola is usually reduced and rotated to a higher location on the breast. Any breast asymmetry that you have can be corrected. Following the surgery, Dr. Wendel will go over breast lift recovery instructions with you, in order to minimize any discomfort.

Dr. Wendel may pair en bloc total capsulectomy with a breast lift or breast implant replacement to restore your breasts to a natural shape and appearance.
