Breast Lift

The breast lift in Utah has become an increasingly popular surgery. The result of a breast lift can help eliminate the effects of pregnancy, gravity, and weight. Mastopexy, or breast lift, reshapes the skin and breast tissue to create a more youthful appearance. After years of child bearing, battles with weight, or the simple effects of gravity, the breast can become misshapen. The breast can lose its shape and volume or stretch marks form and the nipple position changes. This unfortunate sagging is referred to as ptosis. The degrees of ptosis vary based on the nipple’s location on the breast.

A breast lift procedure or mastopexy can restore your breast’s shape by modifying the skin and underlying breast tissue. Women with extreme ptosis may require a more comprehensive lift, known as the full inverted T. Whether or not this is the right procedure for you, Dr. Self, with his extensive experience, will help you decide what’s right for you.
