What Is A Breast Lift And What Are The Benefits Of This Procedure?

A breast lift, medically known as a mastopexy, is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that is made to rejuvenate breasts that have a slightly saggy appearance and return them to a younger, more attractive position.

This popular surgical procedure removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue to make the breast contour younger. The lift can also reduce the size of the areola if it increases in size over time.

Some women feel very self-conscious about deflation in their breasts and want to lift them up to make them more natural. In most cases, a mastopexy procedure will also change the position of the nipple and the areolar position to improve the new appearance of the breast.

Add breast augmentation to your lift

Breast lift procedures alone are not designed to increase breast size. However, in most cases, this removes unnecessary skin,  making your breasts appear fuller and more shapely. 

Some women want to enlarge their breasts along with the removal. In some cases, a combination of breast augmentation and breast lift surgery can be performed to get the desired results.
