Breast Lift with Removal and Replacement of Breast Implant

It is common for many patients who have breast implants for quite sometime to want to either change their implant size or to undergo a breast lift procedure.

The medical term for a breast that sags or droops is ptosis. A ptotic breast is one where the nipple areola complex lies below the level of the breast crease.

When the nipple areola complex lies below the breast crease then a lift procedure is often needed to make the breast appear more youthful. The most common type of incision pattern used to lift the breast is called a T-lift or T-lift mastopexy.

At the same time of the T-lift mastopexy, an implant of similar size or larger or smaller size can be placed to change the volume of the breast. This procedure is called a mastopexy-augmentation.

The mastopexy-augmentation procedure is a powerful procedure to change the shape and volume of the breast.
