Breast Lift and Breast Reduction

Breast Lift and Breast Reduction

Breast Lift

Over the years, the breast skin loses elasticity and the breasts begin to sag, losing their shape and firmness. Breast lift or mastopexy is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. If the breasts are small or have lost volume through weight loss or pregnancy, implants may be inserted in conjunction with mastopexy to restore the firmness and size of the breasts.

Breast implants alone will impart or give a "lifted" look to the breasts so that many women may not require a breast lift. Often, if a woman is willing to have a larger breast size, then the use of larger breast implants will avoid the need for a traditional breast lift and still give the desired result. The use of implants is always desired and preferred to a traditional breast lift to avoid the additional scars associated with a traditional breast lift. As always, your individual situation must be assessed and if there is severe breast sagging then a breast lift would be required. Call for your immediate consultation in our Philadelphia or New Jersey office.

Breast Reduction

Women with large, pendulous breasts may experience back pain, skin irritation, postural problems and even breathing difficulties. Exercise may be difficult. Large breasts can make a woman or a teenage girl feel extremely self-conscious. Breast reduction is a procedure to reduce, lift and reshape the breasts to a smaller, firmer and more proportionate size. Dr. Lo is proficient in several breast reduction techniques, including the 'no-vertical scar' method, which has a smaller incision than the traditional technique. Visit our Philadelphia or New Jersey office and ask Dr. Lo about the suitability of this breast reduction technique for you.
