Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

A woman's breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight fluctuations, aging, gravity, and heredity.

Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is youthful and uplifted.

Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast. If you want your breasts to look fuller or smaller, you might want to consider either breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery.

A breast lift is a good option for you if your are bothered by the feeling that your breasts sag, have lost shape and volume, your breasts have a flatter, elongated shape or are pendulous, when unsupported, your nipples fall below the breast crease, your nipples and areolas point downward, you have stretched skin and enlarged areolas, or one breast is lower than the other.
