Many women find that as a result of pregnancy, breast feeding, or simply the ageing process, their breasts lose their youthful shape and firmness. A breast lift (Mastopexy) is the surgical procedure used to lift and reshape the breasts. A breast lift can also reduce the size of the areola, the skin surrounding the nipple.
There are many different techniques for breast lift surgery, but all aim to elevate the nipple, achieve adequate filling of the breast mound, and reduce excess breast skin. The exact approach used will depend on your breast shape and expectations, so your surgeon will work closely with you to determine which option will achieve the best possible results.
