breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries. Whether you need a lift because of age, genetics or the effects of past pregnancies or nursing, a lift can give you a firmer and more youthful contour to your breasts.

The procedure raises and firms up the breast by lifting and removing excess skin and tissue. What Dr. Eichenberg does in a breast lift is adjust the height of the entire nipple areola area, which then shifts the mammary gland. A breast lift can be performed in conjunction with other breast procedures such as an augmentation or reduction.

A good candidate for a Temecula breast lift is someone who has one or more of the following conditions:

  • Pendulous breasts, but of an acceptable size
  • Insufficient tissue in the breasts or lacking firmness
  • Areolas or nipples that point downward

One of the things to consider before you have a breast lift is whether or not you are done having children. As any woman who has had children knows, your breasts can change dramatically during pregnancy and after nursing. If you become pregnant after your lift the beneficial effect of the surgery will be diminished and you may require a second breast lift.

Another factor to consider is your body weight. If you are thinking about losing weight, you should consider waiting to have a breast lift until you are at your ideal body weight. Breast tissue tends to sag after weight loss and you might be faced with having another breast lift.

A breast lift is primarily done for aesthetics. A woman who has had several children or just genetically has breasts that sag is looking to create a more youthful contour with perky, firm and symmetrical breast. A breast lift is a long lasting but not permanent surgical correction.
