Breast Lift

Mastopexy, or breast lift surgery, can raise and reshape sagging breasts. Breast droop is a common condition for women, especially after weight fluctuations and aging. Surgery is the only way to significantly address this concern. The breast lfit procedure works by tightening and removing the loose tissue, while elevating the nipple and areola to a new position. In some cases, Dr. Levens may combine the breast lift with breast augmentation. (Courtesy of David J. Levens, M.D., F.A.C.S.)

Read Carefully Before Your Consultation

Decisions about implant type, size, incision, and pocket location will have a permanent effect on your breasts.
