What is a breast lift procedure?

A breast lift procedure is perfect for women who have lost some or all of the perkiness and fullness in their bust. Various factors are attributed to this, including significant weight loss, pregnancy, or age. For a solution to these concerns, Dr. Apodaca and his staff are here to help. Most patients have found that a breast lift and/or reduction has improved their figures, raised self-esteem and had an overall positive impact on their lives.

There are some cases where a breast lift can not only provide an aesthetic transformation that can increase confidence, but it can also transform your health. In some cases, large breasts (natural and breast implants) are too big which can cause lower back and shoulder pain. A breast lift, also known as mastopexy raises the breasts to where they used to reside or have never been before! Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure that raises and firms the breasts. Excess skin is removed to tighten the surrounding tissue and to reshape and support the new breast contour. The internal breast tissue is usually reshaped as well. Your nipples can reach a higher level, point forward (instead of downward) and give you the figure you’ve always desired. Dr. Apodaca’s unique techniques minimize scarring and aim to ensure the best outcome and most natural looking results possible.

What are the different types of breast procedures available to me?

It’s natural to want an attractive bust line, but how do you choose the procedure that best fits your needs? Dr. Apodaca will personally customize a blend of procedures to ensure you get the results you want. Your personalized set of procedures will involve at least one of the following:
1) Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
2) Breast Augmentation (Implants)
3) Breast Reduction
4) Or all of the above
Given the various types of procedures available, Dr. Apodaca will discuss the ones most suitable for you following a breast examination. After your measurements are taken, you will discuss and determine what option is the best one for you.
