Breast Lift

A breast lift surgery or a mastopexy is a surgical procedure that lifts the breasts. Sometimes the position of the nipples and the size of the areola may also be changed surgically. A breast lift will correct loose, sagging breasts.

Pregnancy, aging or breastfeeding can cause the breasts to loose their natural shape with decreased breast volume and stretched skin. Some women also choose to undergo breast augmentation at the same time when they are having a breast lift. Most breast lifts are cosmetic procedures, helping women increase their self confidence while restoring their breasts.

Patients can usually go home on the same day after a breast lift, thought some may be asked to stay back overnight for observation.
