A woman's breasts help define her femininity, and with the vast differences in shape, size, and appearance, breasts further help to define her individual body image. Therefore, changes to the breasts over time can be dissatisfying and prompt women to feel as if they are losing some of their femininity and youthful vitality. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Zoran Potparic performs mastopexy, often called breast lift surgery, in Fort Lauderdale to help his patients have firmer, shapelier breasts.

Over time, breasts that were once firm and shapely often may begin to sag and droop, giving them a loose or heavy appearance. The breasts undergo these changes in response to various factors, including:
Breast lift surgery is used to correct sagging breasts. A breast lift may be performed by itself or in conjunction with breast augmentation with breast implants. Dr. Potparic will determine whether you need a lift alone or in combination with augmentation during your consultation.
Plastic surgeons generally identify the following three different conditions that most people would label as "sagging breasts:"
Ptosis is usually the only condition that warrants a breast lift; the insertion of breast implants alone can restore youthful fullness to the breast in most cases of Empty Sac Syndrome and pseudoptosis.
Donut mastopexy, also called a circumareolar breast lift, corrects mild sagging (ptosis). Dr. Potparic will remove a donut-shaped piece of tissue and skin from around the areola and tighten the remaining tissue with the areola in a higher position.
Vertical mastopexy, also called a lollipop breast lift, provides more lift than its counterpart. A donut-shaped piece of tissue around the areola is removed, as is an ellipse of skin below the areola. The incisions are closed with a lollipop-shape pattern.
Anchor-shaped incision is effective for correcting large, saggy breasts. Dr. Potparic will make an anchor-shaped incision that starts around the areola and travels to the bottom of the breast, where it meets the ribcage. He then removes a crescent-shaped piece of skin right above where the breast meets the rib cage, and then repositions the nipple so that it sits higher on the breast in a more youthful position.

Fat tissue transfer has become a predictable means of enlarging breast volume, with fat grafts placed in the muscle and fat layer, but avoiding the breast gland itself. This creates a fuller and perkier breast with an upper slope and cleavage. The necessary fat is harvested via liposuction from the abdomen, thighs, or any other area with excessive deposits. Fat and stem cells are separated from blood and fluids and injected into designated areas using small cannulas, resulting in no visible scars on the breasts or donor sites.
Building and shaping a breast mound is a very time-consuming process, but meticulous technique and "artistic" shaping are the keys to success in this breast lift procedure. An additional fat grafting procedure is usually needed in five to six months later.
