A mastopexy, more frequently called a breast lift, is a common surgical procedure women receive to enhance the appearance and shape of their breasts. In Seattle, the breast lift is not as well-known as the breast augmentation, which is a different type of surgery where the overall breast size is increased using implants. The breast lift in Seattle is a straightforward process where the existing skin, areolae (the darkened skin immediately surrounding the nipple), and breast tissue are altered to create symmetrical, firmer breasts with centered, well-proportioned nipples. A breast lift in Seattle is a typically a two- to three-hour procedure where you relax and sleep comfortably under general anesthesia. Excess, loose skin is removed, breast tissue is secured to sit higher on your chest, and the areolae are positioned to sit on fullest point of your breasts.

A breast lift for Seattle women means:

  • Your breasts will have a perkier, firmer appearance and feel
  • You’ll have a natural, even look
  • Your nipples will have a balanced shape with a forward or upward-facing position
Seattle women opt for a breast lift procedure for a number of reasons, including:
  • Emotional discomfort with the shape, look, or feel of their breasts
  • Loss of shape in their breasts due to pregnancy and/or breastfeeding
  • Considerable weight loss
  • Sagging, drooping, or asymmetrical appearance of their breasts
