As a woman ages, her breasts may begin to lose their firmness and shape, and this can be further exacerbated by factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and gravity.
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to lift and reshape sagging breasts.
Breast lift surgery can help to restore a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance to the breasts by removing excess skin and tissue and repositioning the nipples to a more natural and higher location.
During the surgery, the surgeon will make incisions around the areola and down to the crease under the breast, creating a “lollipop” or “anchor” shape. Then, the underlying breast tissue will be lifted and reshaped to improve the overall contour and projection of the breasts. The nipple and areola will be repositioned and the excess skin will be removed.
