Breast Lift in Kalamazoo at Parkway Plastic Surgery

Your breasts can lose their youthful shape and firmness over time for a variety of reasons. Some young women, because of heredity, may experience loose, sagging breast tissue, as well. Breast lifts can help improve self-image and confidence by creating firm, uplifted contours of your breasts.

Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. Factors such as pregnancy with nursing, weight change, aging, and gravity can produce changes in the appearance of the breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts can lose their shape and begin to sag.

If added volume is desired, breast implants can be inserted in conjunction with a breast lift to increase both firmness and size. Breasts of all sizes can be lifted, but the results may not last as long in women with heavy, large breasts. There are a variety of different surgical techniques used for the reshaping and lifting of the female breast.
