About Breast Lift Surgery
A surgical breast lift is a cosmetic treatment that lifts and tightens the breasts by reducing excess skin and pulling tight the healthy tissue to produce a firmer, younger appearance. This cosmetic breast surgery is offered for women who have lost breast fullness and shape and who have breast sagging due to aging and gravity, as well as weight loss or pregnancy. Medical breakthroughs in breast lift surgery have made this aesthetic surgery so effective that new stats released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show around a 70% increase in demand since 2000. Dr. Mark Schoemann, a double board-certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeon in Encinitas, CA, offers this cosmetic breast surgery at Schoemann Plastic Surgery while prioritizing patient safety and comfort. By using the most advanced methods, Dr. Schoemann can tailor his technique to address the level of sag present as well as your desired aesthetic goal.
Many women visit Schoemann Plastic Surgery hoping to get implants only; however, after a physical exam, you may realize that a mastopexy could provide a better outcome. This is because of the severity of breast sagging that is present. Women whose breasts and nipples point down typically need a breast lift to correct skin irregularities and raise the breasts higher up on the chest wall. If your nipples point downward and your breasts look elongated, a mastopexy (breast lift) can improve their appearance. Women considering a breast lift need to be physically healthy and at a stable weight. While implants may be wanted, in so many cases a breast lift is all that is needed to add the fullness and shape that is desired.
