Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Dr. Namnoum may recommend breast lift surgery, also known as a mastopexy, for women whose breasts have shifted downward in position due to the effects of pregnancy, age, heredity, or weight loss.

These factors commonly cause sagging breasts, stretched skin, and loss of breast volume. During a breast lift procedure, Dr. Namnoum tightens the supporting breast tissue and trims the excess skin around the breasts to give the breasts a more youthful and upward position. Often a mastopexy is combined with techniques to re-arrange the sagging glandular tissue. The shifting of sagging tissues from the lower portion of the breast to the upper results in enhanced central projection and upper pole filling. Fat transfer to the cleavage and upper portion of the breast through a combination of liposuction from the hips, abdomen, or thighs can refine the result and is often added.

Because of Dr. Namnoum’s expertise in breast surgery, he can utilize techniques to avoid the commonly used “anchor shaped” incision. This minimizes the scarring that can result from breast lift surgery.
