What is a breast lift? January 25, 2023 Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, removes excess and sagging tissue from the breasts. This tissue usually develops as a result of massive weight loss, breastfeeding, or even the effects of gravity over time. As a mother of five, Dr. Cara Downey understands these aesthetic concerns’ impact on the body. Her goal as one of the leading plastic surgeons in Houston is to restore her patient’s breasts and nipple projection for a more youthful, natural-looking profile. Dr. Downey’s and Dr. Bullocks’ attention to detail and exceptional patient care has allowed them to perform more than 100 successful breast lift procedures at Heights Plastic Surgery.
