Breast Lift

Restoring Shape and Firmness

Beautiful breasts are possible with the help of a skilled cosmetic surgeon. A breast lift (mastopexy) lifts and reshapes the breasts, creating firmer, perkier, more proportional breasts for years to come. Weight loss or gain, pregnancy and breastfeeding, and even genetics can all contribute to sagging breasts and loss of fullness. Some women have had drooping breasts since they were teens. Whatever your situation, you deserve to look and feel your best.

The Aesthetic Surgery Institute is one of the most trusted cosmetic surgery practices for breast lift surgery in Houston. We’ve helped hundreds of women get the breasts they want, and we offer financing to help make breast lift surgery as accessible and affordable as possible.

Benefits of Breast Lift Surgery

It’s not uncommon for breasts to sag or droop over time. Breast lift surgery can help:

  • Raise the breasts and nipples to a more uplifted position on the chest
  • Eliminate excess skin and tighten up skin on and around breasts
  • Enhance the shape of the breasts
  • Improve breast symmetry
  • Improve how tops and swimsuits fit
  • Enhance self-confidence and body image

For women who have lost volume in the breasts, a mastopexy procedure can be combined with breast augmentation to improve fullness and restore breasts to their former size and contour.

Reasons to Consider

How to Tell if You Need a Breast Lift

You should always consult with an experienced cosmetic surgeon to determine whether a breast lift is right for you. However, there are some telltale signs that you may benefit from mastopexy. Ask yourself the following:

Do My Nipples Point Downward? This happens when the skin at the base of the breast becomes stretched and the weight of the breasts pulls the nipple downward. A breast lift can help raise the nipples to a more youthful-looking position on the chest.

Are My Breasts Asymmetrical or Misshapen? Some women are born with or develop asymmetrical breasts. One breast may be larger than the other—up to a full cup size—or sag or droop more than the other. Some women may also have tuberous breasts and want a rounder shape. Breast lift surgery can dramatically improve breast shape and symmetry.

Does My Nipple or Areola Sit Below the Crease Underneath My Breast? Slide a sheet of plain paper underneath your bare breast until one edge sits against the crease under your breast (inframammary fold). Observe whether your nipple sits below the top edge of the paper. If so, a breast lift can help lift the nipple/areola to its proper position above the crease.

How Breast Lift Surgery Works

During a breast lift procedure, the surgeon removes excess, stretched-out skin; reshapes the breast tissue; and raises the nipple and areola. This creates a firmer and more youthful breast contour. Some women also opt to have the size of their areolas reduced, which can give the breasts a more proportional look.

Surgery Techniques

There are several different surgical techniques to lift the breasts. Which procedure your surgeon decides is best will depend on your specific situation—your breast shape, fullness, and the expected results. A breast lift should only be performed by a highly trained cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Do, Aesthetic Surgery Institute’s double board certified surgeon.
