Breast Lift

Mastopexy or breast lift surgery refers to a group of elective surgical operations designed to lift or change the shape of a person's breasts. Mastopexy may involve repositioning the areola and nipple, as well as lifting the breast tissue and removing skin. Mastopexy may be performed alone, or in combination with placement of breast implants; when implants are used, the procedure is typically called breast augmentation. The change that a mastopexy affords to the position, shape and distribution of existing breast tissue is temporary, as the effects of gravity and aging continue, causing ptosis to recur over time.
