Breast Lifts

Breast Lift Surgery

Mastopexy, commonly known as a breast lift, is a surgical procedure that improves the breast liftshape and position of the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening surrounding tissue.

Loss of skin elasticity, gravity and other factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding ultimately affect the shape and firmness of your breasts. Patients who are generally satisfied with the size of their breasts can have a breast lift to raise and firm them, resulting in a more youthful breast contour.

Some patients may be unhappy that they have lost a significant amount of breast volume over time. In such cases, implants inserted in conjunction with a breast lift can increase breast size at the same time as the shape and position of the breasts are enhanced.
