Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

breast lift patient houston

Several things may cause the breasts to droop or sag, including pregnancy, weight change, and aging. Dr. Ciaravino can correct this through the breast lift or mastopexy.

With this procedure, Dr. Ciaravino reshapes the breast mound, raises the nipple, and tightens the skin to give a more youthful, perky appearance.

In many cases, he uses a breast implant, or breast augmentation, along with the breast lift in a combined procedure known as “augmentation mastopexy.” Using this technique, Dr. Ciaravino can give you the size and shape that you desire, and make dramatic improvement in the appearance of your breasts.

Candidates for the breast lift include women who have:

  • Low or elongated breasts
  • Nipples that point downward
  • Enlarged areolas
  • Stretched skin
  • One breast lower than the other

The mastopexy procedure is done in an outpatient setting under general anesthesia. Patients must refrain from smoking for at least one month before and after surgery. Because Dr. Ciaravino uses a special surgical technique, swelling and discomfort is  minimal, the recovery is rapid, and the scars are well concealed.
