A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a procedure that raises the breasts for a more youthful appearance. Breast sagging can happen at almost any age, especially after pregnancy and significant weight loss.

Often, a breast lift can be combined with either breast augmentation or breast reduction, depending on your goals. Breast augmentation changes the size and fullness of the breasts, and can be combined with a breast lift to help the breasts look perkier.

A breast lift improves the position and shape of the breasts for a more pleasing appearance.

Dr. Rankin can perform a breast lift in several different ways, depending on the extent of your breast laxity.

Dr. Rankin will work with you to find the best balance to minimize scarring and maximize aesthetics.

During the procedure, Dr. Rankin will remove any excess skin, tissue, and fat that makes your breasts sag. Dr. Rankin then repositions the areolas or nipples to create a more youthful breast appearance.

Good candidates for a breast lift or mastopexy are healthy nonsmokers with reasonable expectations. If you have sagging breasts that make you self-conscious, you are likely to be a good candidate.

Breast Lift often costs between $x and $y, but can vary depending on…

The length of your breast lift depends on the details of your procedure. Some breast lifts may require more time than others.

You can expect a breast lift to take a few hours. Dr. Rankin will give you a more accurate time when he discusses your procedure with you.
