Breast Lift

Breast Lift

Having breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure to change the shape of your breasts. During a breast lift, excess skin is removed and breast tissue is reshaped to raise the breasts. During a breast lift, sagging breasts are raised and reshaped by removing excess skin and repositioning the remaining breast tissue and nipples when necessary.

Women with breasts that sag or have nipples that point downward can opt for a breast lift, which may help boost self-confidence. While a breast lift won’t change the size of your breasts significantly, it can generally be completed in combination with breast reduction or breast augmentation surgery.

Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and gravity can all cause your breasts to change and over time they simply lose their elasticity and firmness, causing them to sag. A breast lift can reduce this sagging and raise the position of your nipples and areolae, we can even reduce the size of each areola during the breast lift procedure in order to keep them in proportion with your newly shaped breasts.
