Breast Lift

Mastopexy

As we age the breast gradually loses its shape, becoming droopy and loose as the skin loses elasticity. This is exacerbated by pregnancy, which further stretches the skin envelope of the breast. 

A breast lift procedure helps to reverse these changes – producing more youthful looking breasts by lifting and reshaping them, so that the breasts are sitting in a perkier position on the chest. In addition, the areolas are also being reduced to match the perkier and firmer new breasts. 

Depending on the degree of droopiness and skin excess, breast lift surgery can be performed either via a donut incision, a lollipop incision or that of an inverted T in the most severe cases. 

For those with minor sagging, breast augmentation can be the most effective technique, producing fuller and firmer breasts. Often the breast lift procedure is combined with the use of breast implants to provide more fullness than that of a conventional breast lift.
