Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted.
A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful appearance. As a result, a breast lift can help to remedy the effect pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, gravity, weight fluctuations and heredity has on the body. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well.
During your initial consultation, your doctor will discuss what the surgical procedure entails and instructions on management post operatively. He will discuss proper care of the surgical site as well as recommendations on further care in order to have the best possible results.
