Breast Lift

Regain your youthful contour with a Breast Lift

Life’s changes such as pregnancy, weight fluctuations, the relentless pull of gravity, and aging tissues, can alter the shape and position of your breasts. If you find yourself dissatisfied with these changes, consider a breast lift offered by Dr. Benjamin Eskra at Eskra Plastic Surgery.

What Is A Breast Lift?

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to elevate and reshape sagging breasts, achieving a more youthful and uplifted breast contour. Over time, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging can impact the firmness and posture of the breasts. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a profile that is more uplifted and youthful.

The Process Of A Breast Lift

During a breast lift, a plastic surgeon removes excess skin, tightens the surrounding breast tissue, and repositions the nipples and areolas to a higher, more youthful level on the breasts. This procedure can also improve breast symmetry if one breast is lower or larger than the other. Breast lift surgery can be tailored to the individual needs and desires of the patient. It can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures, such as breast augmentation (to increase breast volume with implants) or breast reduction (to reduce breast size).

A Customized Approach

Every woman’s body and goals are unique, and Dr. Eskra provides a customized surgical plan tailored to each patient’s specific needs and desired outcomes. During the initial consultation, Dr. Eskra will evaluate your breast size and shape, the position of your areolas and nipples, and the degree of breast sagging to recommend the best approach for you.

Considerations & Recovery

When considering a breast lift, it’s essential to weigh the potential benefits against the possible risks and changes it may necessitate in your life. Lifestyle adjustments, such as quitting smoking, are critical as smoking can impair healing. If you’re planning a future pregnancy or significant weight changes, it might be wise to delay the surgery, since these can negate the effects of a lift by stretching the skin. It’s also important to remember that a breast lift cannot stop the natural aging process; while it can provide a more youthful breast contour, aging and gravity will eventually alter the breasts further. Additionally, having realistic expectations is key—a breast lift can boost your confidence and body image, but it isn’t a guarantee of perfection or a dramatic change. Risks such as permanent scarring, though typically fading over time, and potential changes in nipple or breast sensation, which can be temporary or permanent, must also be seriously contemplated. 

Who Is A Candidate For A Breast Lift?

  • Women who experience breast sagging (ptosis) and loss of volume
  • Those with nipples that point downward or fall below the breast crease
  • Individuals with stretched skin and enlarged areolas
  • Patients who are physically healthy and maintain a stable weight
  • Non-smokers or those willing to quit prior to surgery and throughout the recovery period
