What are the goals of cosmetic breast lift surgery (mastopexy)?


Breast lifts are often requested by adult woman who have noticed a gradual descent of the breast with age, breastfeeding, pregnancy, and childbirth.  The procedure is normally performed as an outpatient cosmetic surgery in an accredited operating room under general anesthesia.


The goals of mastopexy and breast lift surgery are to reposition the nipple and areola and tighten the breast skin.  The patients who have lost significant volume in the breast may also benefit from additional breast augmentation surgery to increase the volume and size of the breast during mastopexy.  Most patients will benefit from these outpatient cosmetic breast surgery procedures that can redefine a more youthful shape to the breast.  Dr. Karamanoukian is a firm advocate of cosmetic breast surgery for patients who have lost significant breast volume, or and had a gradual sagginess of the breast.  Our plastic surgery office is equipped with the latest state of the art equipment for cosmetic plastic surgery. 


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian performs mastopexy surgery using the least and uses smallest possible incision.  If you are concerned about surgical scars during your mastopexy, Dr. Karamanoukian can advise you of the specific risks for scar formation with breast lift surgery.  Please call our office at 310-998-5533 to schedule your comprehensive consultation for mastopexy surgery.
