Women who have inherently large breasts often have a bigger problem with drooping, however women with breasts of any size can experience sagging as well.. Fluctuations in weight, the natural progression of age, as well as having children can be harsh on the breasts.
A breast lift (mastopexy) surgery is performed by repositioning the nipple higher on the chest wall, and removing excess skin to rejuvenate the appearance of the breasts. This surgery can help with sagging breasts caused by pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, age, gravity, or genetics. If the appearance of your breasts bothers you, a breast lift may be recommended by Dr. Arash Izadpanah to address these concerns.
Common surgeries performed with breast lifts
Breast lift surgery can be combined with other procedures to maximize results.
Dr. Arash Izadpanah will discuss all of your options in consultation to collaborate with you on the best surgical plan for your desired results.

Find out why breast surgery may not be for you
Dr. Arash Izadpanah will give you an honest assessment and let you know if you are a good candidate for breast lift surgery, but if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, are currently ill or have an infection, or if you have cancer or an abnormal mammogram, you will not be a good candidate for breast lift surgery.
What to consider for breast lift surgery
If you have determined that you may be a good candidate for a breast lift, then you will need to discuss with your surgeon what type of surgical technique will be used for your breast lift. You may also discuss whether or not you will combine other procedures with your breast lift.
It is important to understand that a breast lift will not last forever, and gravity and aging will continue to have effects even after surgery. How long your breast lift results will last can be dependent on genetics, lifestyle, activity levels, etc.
Breast lift surgery repositions the nipple on the chest to achieve a lifted look, but will not add volume to the top of the breasts. If you desire volume in the top of the breast, a breast lift with augmentation may be a recommendation for you.
Dr. Arash Izadpanahwill discuss all of your options during consultation, and will work with you to ensure you are on the same page to achieve your desired results. Our goal is for you to be completely satisfied and confident with your outcome. The entire process and experience is completely customized to each individual patient.
A popular plastic surgery combination
Combining breast lift surgery with breast augmentation (augmentation mastopexy surgery) is a first-rate option to restore breasts that have become sagging and deflated.
The breast augmentation and breast lift procedures together can be a great fit for women who:
This is a fantastic combination procedure to provide a youthful, full appearance to the breasts, increasing your breast volume while lifting them as well.
Breast lift surgery does not reduce the size of the breast, but skin is removed and this may give the appearance of a slightly smaller breast; adding an implant can help to maintain the previous size as closely as possible.
A breast lift will not add extra volume to the top of the breasts, so choosing a round breast implant can help to give that perky appearance you may be looking for.
Combining a breast lift with a breast augmentation (mastopexy augmentation) might be the perfect solution to your breast concerns, and custom recommendations will be discussed in your consultation with Dr. Arash.
