Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

What is a Breast Lift?

There are many reasons that breasts may begin to lose their shape and firmness and require a Breast Lift procedure in order to re-create their former appearance: age, gravity, dramatic weight loss, or pregnancy and breast-feeding. Some patients also notice a decrease in size, or they were never quite happy with their breast size to begin with, therefore a breast augmentation with a lift may be the best solution for achieving the desired look.

The ideal candidate for the Breast Lift procedure may have breasts that are the size they desire, but have begun to sag or droop downwards, while the breasts may have lost their firmness and/ or the nipples and areolas have begun to point downwards. This candidate should be in good health with no illnesses that would negatively affect the body’s healing process after the procedure. Finally, most importantly, potential patients should have realistic expectations for the possible results the procedure will produce.

Breast Lift Consultation

The most important thing you should do once you have begun to seriously consider a Breast Lift Procedure for yourself is to set up a consultation with San Antonio based Dr. Eric Schaffer is a board certified plastic surgeon, who is one of the foremost authorities in the Southwest on innovative body contouring cosmetic procedures. With board certification from The American Board of Plastic Surgery, you can trust in Dr. Schaffer’s keen aesthetic eyes to give you the results you desire.

The next important step will be to set up a consultation appointment with Dr. Schaffer at his San Antonio office to make sure that he is the right fit for you and your expectations. Be prepared beforehand with a list of questions, as well as your medical history and lifestyle so that, Dr. Schaffer can provide you with all of the relevant information to the breast lift as well as your expected results. During this consultation Dr. Schaffer and you will begin to discuss the best plan of action for getting the results you are wishing for. As no two women are exactly alike, keep an open mind in order to consider your plastic surgeon’s advice.
