Breast Lift

Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy)

A breast lift is performed to correct sagging breasts with low nipples and to increase firmness without reducing the size. The operation involves a rearrangement of the soft tissues, repositioning the nipple, and increasing firmness by tightening the skin covering. In some cases, this procedure may be combined with the use of an implant to enlarge the breast when readjustment of the normal tissue alone will not suffice.
