Breast lifts are becoming increasingly popular, as the amount of these procedures performed has increased 70% since 2000, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This is no surprise considering the rejuvenating effects of this surgery to restore and enhance the profile of the breasts, making them more youthful and uplifted. Dr. Ortiz, a board-certified Raleigh plastic surgeon, is thoroughly experienced in performing breast lift procedures and has helped countless women boost their self-confidence and improve their figure.
Many women tend to experience the sagging or drooping of their breasts over time, which is why the numbers of breast lifts are continually increasing. These changes can be the result of several different factors, such as aging, breastfeeding, weight loss, or genetics. Whatever the case may be, a breast lift, also referred to as a mastopexy, is the most effective way to reverse the sagging of the breasts and restore their youthfulness. During this one-day, outpatient procedure, Dr. Ortiz will raise and enhance your breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding skin and tissue, resulting in lifted, more youthful breasts. He will correct the sagging of the breasts, downward-pointing nipples, elongated or outstretched nipples, lack of breast firmness, and any other issues present, leaving you feeling more self-confident and youthful. Breast lifts are typically performed either alone or in conjunction with a breast augmentation. If you'd like to learn more, you can read our frequently asked questions.
