Breast Lift

A breast lift or Mastopexy is a surgical procedure performed to change the shape of the breasts. By removing excess, stretched out skin, reshaping the breast tissue, and raising the nipple & areola into a more forward position

Stretched, large areolae can also be reduced during breast lift surgery, creating an overall better proportioned, natural looking breast.

A breast lift won't change the size of your breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller, consider breast lift and breast augmentation surgery.

If you want smaller breasts, consider combining breast lift and breast reduction surgery.

Breasts change with age. They often lose firmness. And they become less elastic, which means the skin doesn't snap back into place after being stretched.

There are many causes for these kinds of breast changes, including:

  • Pregnancy

  • Breastfeeding

  • Weight changes

  • Aging

  • Gravity

You might consider a breast lift if:

  • Your breasts sag — they've lost shape and volume, or they've gotten flatter and longer

  • Your nipples fall below your breast creases when your breasts aren't supported

  • Your nipples and areolae point downward

  • Your areolae have stretched out of proportion to your breasts

  • One of your breasts falls lower than the other
