Breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty, and breast lift, or mastopexy, are procedures used to treat sagging, misshapen or uneven breasts. The medical experts at the Soderstrom Skin Institute take numerous physiological factors into consideration when assisting patients during their decision to get reconstructive breast surgery. Both procedures can help women restore their feminine figures as well as provide a more positive self-image.
Common reasons for breast lift and breast reductions:
- Pregnancy alters the body changing breast size and leaving breasts with sagging appearance.
- Weight loss or gain changes breast size and leaves breasts with sagging appearance.
- Larger than average breasts that are painful or sagging.
How does it work?
During both procedures excess fat, tissue and skin are removed to reposition the breast. The nipple is reposition in relation to the new position of the breast. In certain individuals with smaller, sagging breasts, breast augmentation is used in addition to a breast lift.
All surgical procedures require an initial consultation appointment. For more information or to schedule your appointment please call Soderstrom Skin Institute at 1-888-970-7546.
