What is a Breast Lift?
For many women, time has taken a toll on the youthful appearance of their breasts. Perhaps their breasts are not as firm as they once were or seem to be drooping or sagging.
Women unhappy with their breasts commonly complain about:
- Having flat, elongated or pendulous breasts
- Nipples that fall below your breast crease
- Nipples and areolas that point downward
- Stretched skin and enlarged areolas
- One breast hangs lower than the other
A breast lift, also known as "mastopexy," is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess skin and tightens surrounding tissue, effectively raising the breasts for better shape, support and firmness without the use of a breast implant.
A breast lift will also reduce areola size, contributing to a rejuvenated, youthful and uplifted appearance.

Why Do Breasts Sag Over Time?
Many issues affect breast tissue firmness including:
- Loss of the skin's elasticity
- Weight gain and loss
A breast lift will not change breast size or fill out the upper portion of your breasts. Breast augmentation is the best procedure to accomplish these goals.
Both the breast lift and breast augmentation are safe and effective cosmetic surgery procedures available at the Denver, Colorado offices of quadruple board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. plastic surgeon David Broadway.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If the shape or size of your breasts concerns you, a breast lift may be a good option.
To qualify for a breast lift, Dr. Broadway will want you to:
- Be in good overall health
- Have realistic expectations
- Be a non-smoker
- Maintain a healthy weight
A variety of breast incision patterns and techniques are used in the breast lift procedure. However, the most appropriate breast lift technique for you is determined based upon:
- The size and shape of your breasts
- The position and size of the areolas
- How much breast sagging is present
- The quality and elasticity of your skin
- How much extra skin is present
