More commonly known as a breast lift; mastopexy is a surgical procedure that allows the breasts to be raised up and more firm. The process of a mastopexy involves removing some of the excess skin around the breasts and tightening the tissue surrounding the breast area to reshape and give the breasts a new contour.
Many women want a breast lift because over the course of time, the breasts can lose their firmness and nice shape. This happens when there is a loss of elasticity in the skin from things such as pregnancy, aging, weight loss and heredity issues.
Having a breast lift will rejuvenate a woman’s figure to be more uplifted and youthful.
Having a mastopexy is much more comfortable being done in a boutique atmosphere. Dr. Enrique Hanabergh Jr., M.D. offers an experience that will leave you with a great patient satisfaction.
