ARROYO PLASTIC SURGERY
Breast Lift Houston TX
Breast lift – also referred to as a mastopexy – is a cosmetic surgical procedure to address breasts that are sagging due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, or the natural aging process. Breasts that are sagging, “deflated” on the chest can negatively influence a woman’s confidence and sense of feminine beauty. While exercise and diet can lead to positive improvements in the shape of your body, they, unfortunately, do not restore the firmness and projection of breasts that have lost their structure due to elasticity. Plastic surgeons use this procedure to give women a perky breast appearance, leading to an overall more attractive and youthful appearance.

Breast Lift FAQ
Breast lift vs breast augmentation
Breast lift (mastopexy) entails removing excess skin and breast tissue in order to achieve a perkier, attractive appearance. In breast augmentation, plastic surgeons place implants under the chest muscle or breast tissue in order to improve the shape and volume of the female breasts. A breast lift is the perfect procedure choice for women who have sagging breasts, whereas an augmentation is designed for women who have small breasts. There are a good amount of patients that not only suffer from sagging breasts but would also like to add more volume to their breasts. For these women, there is also the option of doing both at the same time, effectively raising the breast while giving a fuller breast shape. During your initial breast lift West Houston, TX consultation with Dr. Arroyo, the surgeon will examine your breast appearance, listen to your concerns, and let you know which procedure option is best suited to your needs.
How bad is scarring after mastopexy?
Scarring is an inevitable consequence of any surgery where incisions are made into the skin. During this procedure, Dr. Arroyo utilizes advanced surgical methods to achieve the desired aesthetic results while minimizing the risk of scarring. The surgeon will also provide a comprehensive post-op scar management program to make sure that scars heal quicker and are as faded as possible. Keep in mind that it may take up to 18 months for your mastopexy scars to fade.
Does this include nipple repositioning?
Nipple repositioning is a common practice during a breast lift. The surgeon will rearrange the areola to move it higher up on the breast, improving appearance and proportionality to the new breast shape. Dr. Arroyo will be keen to discuss this – along with other procedure steps – during one of your pre-op consultations.
How long will results last?
The results of mastopexy can be permanent. However, keep in mind that the natural process of aging, significant weight loss or weight gain, gravity, and lifestyle factors can alter the outcome of this treatment and create the necessity for another procedure. In some cases, a phenomenon that is known as bottoming out (stretching of skin below the areola) may also create the necessity for a secondary procedure. Dr. Arroyo will recommend that you maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to get the best results out of your mastopexy.
