What is a mastopexy surgery? Plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, and Beverly Hills - Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian

With age, the female breasts begin to sag and the position of the areola and nipple begins to descend downwards relative to the inframammary crease.  These recognizable changes occur most often with weight loss, weight gain, pregnancy, and childbirth.  Many believe that breastfeeding can further enhance the rate of breast droopiness.  Given the changes that can occur on the breast with age, a procedure known as a breast lift or mastopexy can be performed to tighten the skin around the breast and reposition the nipple and areolar complex.  This creates a more attractive breast shape and lifts the breast to a more perky position. 


The technical term for a breast lift is known as a mastopexy and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian specializes in cosmetic breast surgery including mastopexy, mastopexy plus breast augmentation and breast augmentation.  The patients who are candidates for mastopexy include those that are healthy but have generalized droopiness and skin laxity of the breast.  Mastopexy is performed in our Los Angeles plastic surgery suite as an outpatient cosmetic surgical procedure.  If you have questions about mastopexy surgery or wish to understand the details of breast lift procedures, please schedule a consultation with cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Karamanoukian.  During your consultation, he will review your options for breast lift surgery and provide you with full details regarding your surgery.  Call our Los Angeles plastic surgery patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533.
