Whether you have just lost a significant amount of weight, have had children, or just simply have suffered the ongoing effects of gravity, you might find that your breasts are not as perky or shapely as they used to be. This is a natural progression and is nothing to be concerned about, but some women may be interested in sculpting their physical appearance to be more in line with their personal preferences. At Schaffer Plastic Surgery, we can help you learn if a breast lift in Birmingham is right for you.
What is a Breast Lift?
Otherwise known as a mastopexy, a breast lift is a procedure performed by a plastic surgeon intended to shape your breasts into a more desirable shape. The process typically involves excess skin being removed, then breast tissue may be reshaped to elevate the breasts. It is not intended to change the size of your breasts; rather, it is a procedure intended to reshape and make your breasts more taut and supple. At Schaffer Plastic Surgery, we are also happy to discuss the option of combining the procedure with breast augmentation for enhanced size.
Who are the Best Candidates?
People who might consider a breast lift in Birmingham tend to be women whose breasts sag or may have lost their shape through aging or weight gain. Other common breast lift candidates stand to benefit from surgery focused on moving the nipples to above the breast crease and altering them so they no longer point downward.
Others still consider this procedure if their areolae are no longer in proportion to their breasts. Some women even consider this procedure in situations where one breast falls below the other. Whatever your reason, you can be sure that you will be welcome at Schaffer Plastic Surgery in Birmingham.

The surgery is fairly simple, and it all begins with a consultation here at Schaffer Plastic Surgery in Birmingham. If you are ready to enjoy a more youthful and vibrant look, contact us today to book your consultation for a breast lift!
