Mastopexy Procedures by a Trusted Connecticut-Based Plastic Surgeon
For a breast lift procedure that can provide a more perky appearance, our Connecticut based plastic surgeon provides the results—and the care—patients can count on. A breast lift raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the remaining skin for a more youthful appearance. Also known as a mastopexy, the procedure involves repositioning the nipple and its surrounding skin (the areola). Over time, the areola may stretch. Many women also decide to reduce its size during the breast lift.
While a breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a more uplifted and youthful profile, it does not correct for breast size. Many women combine a breast lift with breast augmentation, for more volume, or breast reduction, for less volume.
The procedure involves several small incisions in the breast to:
- Remove extra skin
- Reposition the areola and nipple, and
- Possibly reduce areola size
Natural aging can affect skin elasticity, stretching breast tissue. Weight changes, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and family history may also contribute to sagging breasts. For many, a breast lift can restore and renew firmness and shape.

Financing and Payment Plans
Because a breast lift is considered an elective procedure, health insurance does not cover the surgery. And the cost of the procedure can vary greatly from patient to patient, based on body type and desired results. We accept cash, check, and major credit cards. We have also worked with CareCredit for many years to provide the best financing services available.
