During the surgery, excess skin is removed from the breasts and the nipples are raised to a higher position to accommodate the change and make the breasts appear natural and also more youthful in their appearance. Some patients may combine breast augmentation and breast lift for optimal results. Dr. Fortes will determine if both procedures are right for you.
If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, you will want to postpone a breast lift.
The mastopexy procedure is generally performed as outpatient surgery and lasts two to three hours. Most patients can return to work four to five days after surgery. Dr. Fortes will discuss with you all risks and any concerns you may have about the surgery.

Reviews & Testimonials
"I was nervous when I first started my journey and looking for the right physician. Dr. Fortes made me feel so comfortable and I trusted him from the beginning. I had an anchor lift, reduction, and a small implant placed higher to keep my breast perky so to speak. He listens to his patients and I have incredible results. I cannot thank you enough!"
