Mastopexy, or Breast Lift, aims to improve the shape of the breast, by elevating the nipple position and improving the projection and position of the breast on the chest wall by removing breast tissue and reshaping the breast.
With age, childbearing and weight changes, the ligaments which contribute to the youthful shape of the breast tend to stretch and elongate, allowing the breast to droop on the chest wall. This is called “breast ptosis” and the surgery is aimed at correcting this.
If there is enough breast tissue left, then it is possible to reshape it, remove excess skin and produce a higher, firmer breast. If there is little breast tissue, an implant can usually be placed during the lift procedure. A consultation will provide a range of effective options are possible to transform the look of your breasts, regardless of their current state.
