Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Online 3d simulations by Crisalix

As a woman ages and goes through pregnancies, her breasts can gradually lose youthful elasticity, causing them to sag or appear deflated. In some cases, the areolas can become enlarged, and the nipples can droop downward. Patients who want to restore their breasts to a perkier and more attractive condition may consider breast lift surgery. This procedure involves removing excess skin, reposition the natural breast tissue, and address cosmetic nipple-areolar complex concerns. Dr. Hotchandani at Hotchandani Laser, Vein, and Cosmetic Surgery performs this procedure to give patients the beautiful breasts and improved confidence they desire.

Ideal Candidates for Breast Lift

As a long-standing member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Hotchandani possesses a comprehensive knowledge of the human form and aesthetics. During the initial consultation appointment, he will evaluate your needs and goals to create a personalized surgical plan for you. Ideally, breast lift candidates should be in good health and can relate to one or more of the following:

  • Sagging breasts (ptosis)
  • Breast volume loss
  • Pendulous breasts
  • Breasts that lack firmness
  • Stretched areolas
  • Downward-facing nipples
Breast Lift Procedure

A breast lift is an outpatient surgery that is performed using general anesthesia at our facility in Green Bay, WI. It can take one to three hours to complete. Patients must make arrangements ahead of time for a friend or family member to transport them to and from their appointment. It is also recommended to have someone there to help during the first 24 hours after the procedure.

The breast lift techniques used will depend on the amount of correction needed. Usually, incisions are placed around the areolas and sometimes down the lower breast pole to the fold. Through these incisions, excess tissue is carefully removed, and the nipple-areolar complex can be adjusted. When possible, Dr. Hotchandani places all incisions in locations that can be concealed with undergarments.
