A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, raises the position of the breasts and can be carried out in conjunction with breast enlargement surgery.
This surgery is chosen by women who are happy with the overall size of their breasts, but are unhappy with the loss of fullness. Moderately sagging breasts can be corrected with a breast lift without the need for breast implants. A breast lift can:
Re-shape sagging breasts
Improve their contour
Raise the position of downward-pointing nipples
Further increase firmness
Breast lift surgery removes excess skin to raise the nipple and tighten the breast tissue. There are different types of breast lift available and we will choose the one best suited to your needs. This will depend on the shape and size of your breasts and the current position of your nipple/areola.
Similar to a breast reduction, a breast lift requires a number of incisions in the breast, tightening the skin. There is moderate scarring, however when the recovery period is over, your breasts will sit higher.
It is important to note that a breast lift does not significantly change the size of your breasts or give your breasts a rounder shape. If you would like your breasts to look fuller or smaller, you might need to consider either breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery.
