Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

What is a breast lift?

A breast lift, also known as breast lift surgery or a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that restores uneven and/or sagging breasts, making them firmer and perkier. The procedure is also able to address stretched areolas (the darker areas around the nipples) as well as plump up decreased breast volume. It can be performed at the same time as breast augmentation or a breast reduction if the breasts have either too little or too much volume.

The surgery involves removing the stretched, excess skin, raising the nipple and areola to a forward-facing position, and reshaping the breast tissue. This offers a more youthful contour (shape) to the breast.

Every year, thousands of women undergo breast lift surgeries. When performed by qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon, most women are pleased with the results, feeling as though their feminine proportions and confidence have been restored.
