Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure used to raise and reshape sagging breasts. Factors such as pregnancy, nursing, weight change; aging and gravity produce changes in the appearance of a woman’s breasts.
As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and begin to sag. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure by restoring the lift and shape of your breasts. In breast lift surgery, the nipples are repositioned and the areolas (the darker skin around the nipples) may be reduced in size. If your breasts are small or have lost volume after pregnancy, breast implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both firmness and size.
