Mastopexy also known as breast lift is a surgical procedure to lift and reshape sagging breasts. Common reasons for a mastopexy include natural effects of aging, pregnancy, and weight loss. By trimming excess skin and tightening supporting tissue, breasts can be made to sit higher on the chest and be firmer to the touch. In addition, the nipple and areola can be repositioned or resized to further enhance breast appearance. Because mastopexy does not change breast size, it is often combined with breast augmentation or reduction.
Breast lift can offer a dramatic improvement in the shape and contour of the breasts, helping to restore a more youthful breast appearance that may have been lost with age, pregnancy or weight loss.
