Mastopexy (Breast Lift)

Aging causes loose skin and breast volume loss, both of which cause breasts to droop or sag. These changes are often intensified by childbirth and weight changes.

New statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show breast lifts have grown 70 percent since 2000, outpacing breast implants two-to-one.

What is breast lift surgery?

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift can reduce this, as well.

Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of breasts, nor does it round out the upper part of the breast.

If you want your breasts to look fuller, breast lift and breast augmentation surgery should be considered instead.
