Oftentimes women who were pregnant or who have lost a significant amount of weight may desire a breast augmentation. However, a breast augmentation may not necessarily be the best option for them.

While a breast implant can restore volume to the décolleté portion of your breast (the upper and inner portion of your breast) in most cases it does not correct the position of the nipple. Dr. Neaman states “There are various degrees of breast ptosis that may require different degrees of a mastopexy” Mastopexy, otherwise know as a breast lift, is the plastic surgery procedure used raising sagging breasts and restoring the nipple into a more appropriate position.

Techniques for the mastopexy vary from simple incisions around the nipple to incisions that involve inframammary fold. These incisions allow the surgeon to shape the breast which gives it a pleasing round and rejuvenated shape. Many times an implant is combined with a mastopexy to provide a lifted and fuller appearance to the breast.
