Breast Uplift Surgery Overview
Mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to change and raise (lift) the breasts of a woman.
The surgery can involve changing the contour, elevation and size of the breasts for females who are unhappy with how they hang or sag.
Breast lift procedures' aim is to bring about a more aesthetically pleasing bust that is in proportion to their upper body so that they are correctly placed on the chest.
Various events in life can alter the way the breasts look and behave, including ageing, weight loss and having children.
The muscles and ligaments around the breasts can stretch and break down, causing the breasts to lose their youthful appearance and droop.
This, combined with natural gravity, can pull the breasts down causing permanent drooping or hanging boobs.
During a breast uplift, your surgeon may also remove excess skin and reshape breast tissue to raise the breasts up.
In addition, it is not uncommon to combine other surgical procedures with mastopexy such as augmentation (implants). Mastoplexy can also be applied during a breast reduction procedure to correct breasts that are oversized.
