A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that raises and reshapes sagging breasts. Over time, factors such as age, genetics, pregnancy, weight changes, and gravity can cause breasts to lose their firmness and shape. A breast lift can help restore a more youthful and perky appearance.

During the procedure, excess skin is removed, breast tissue is reshaped, and the nipple and areola are repositioned to a higher, more forward location. In some cases, the areola size can also be reduced. The goal is to give the breasts a firmer, uplifted contour.

It’s worth noting that a breast lift does not significantly change the size of the breasts. If you want larger or smaller breasts, you might consider combining a breast lift with either breast augmentation (implants) or breast reduction surgery.

As with any surgical procedure, a breast lift carries potential risks, such as scarring, infection, changes in nipple or breast sensation, and anesthesia risks. It’s important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to understand the procedure’s benefits and risks.
