What Can a Breast Lift Do for You? (Updated 2023)


Have you ever walked past a mirror and realized that your reflection doesn’t match the way you perceive yourself? Over time, our bodies change, and women face unique issues adjusting to breast changes caused by aging, pregnancy, or weight loss. As a woman, Dr. Renee Burke is extremely aware of how self-conscious a woman might feel if her image doesn’t reflect what she has seen in the past.

If your breasts no longer represent how you feel, a breast lift may be an option. Diet and exercise can solve many image problems, but it can’t help with:

  • Sagging breasts
  • Downward-pointing nipples
  • A “deflated appearance”

For these concerns, the best solution is a breast lift, or mastopexy. Here are just a few of the ways a breast lift from Dr. Burke can help you look and feel your best.

Correct Breast Asymmetry

Dr. Burke has performed countless surgeries—but her approach to each individual surgery is as unique as each of her patients. Regardless of the size or shape of a woman’s breasts, Dr. Burke strives to give her patients a balanced, symmetrical pair of breasts.

Asymmetry is more common than one might think. It is also extremely common for women who have had children and breastfed in the past. In some cases, achieving balance between breasts requires breast augmentation with an implant in one or both breasts in addition to a breast lift. Dr. Burke will thoroughly discuss your options with you during your consultation.

Firm and Reshape

During a breast lift procedure, your own tissues and muscles will be adapted to a new, more youthful shape. If you are concerned about sagging breasts or an excess of skin, this procedure would address both of those issues. Over time, gravity changes how our breasts look and feel, and a breast lift procedure is specifically performed to address these issues.

Most women are so pleased with how the breast lift procedure reshapes their breasts, they give it a 95% “worth it” rating on RealSelf. You can see some of our happy patients’ results in the before-and-after pictures below.
