Mastopexy, commonly referred to as breast lift, is performed to raise and reshape breasts to give them a firmer, rounder and youthful look. As women get older, their breasts tend to lose their elasticity and firmness. Also, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight gain or loss can accentuate this process. This sagging can settle in a woman's breasts in any age due to these circumstances. Patients mostly prefer having breast uplifting surgery if their breasts have started to sag, droop or nipples point downward. If they also like to increase the size of their breasts, they can sometimes have breast augmentation at the same time as breast lifting.
A significant amount of our patients that underwent breast uplifting surgery state that they feel more confident about their appearance and how they look in certain types of clothing.
