A breast lift procedure also called mastopexy is a surgical procedure that lifts sagging breasts. During the procedure, the surgeon will raise breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support new breast contour.
The surgery is sought after by women who have sagging breasts (also called breast ptosis), or enlarged areola due to pregnancy, breast feeding, weight fluctuation, ageing or heredity.
It should be considered that a mastopexy will not significantly change the size of the breasts. If a patient wants to have a fuller or smaller look, it is recommended to have a breast augmentation (such as breast implant or fat injection procedures) or reduction in conjunction.
