Breast ptosis is the medical term for sagging of the breasts and refers to when the loss of elasticity in the breast tissue causes the breasts to sag significantly enough to alter the areola and nipple locations relative to the breast crease. A breast lift, also known as mastoplexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue resulting in changing and modifying the size, contour, and elevation of the breasts.
Statistics from The American Society of Plastic Surgeons indicate that breast lift procedures have grown 70% since 2000, outpacing breast implants by more than 2-to-1. Dr. Farzad R. Nahai will perform a comprehensive analysis of your degree of breast ptosis during a consultation. Dr. Nahai will discuss the breast lift procedure in its entirety to better understand your expectations and aesthetic goals prior to surgery.
