Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Many women seek mastopexy (breast lift) because pregnancy, nursing and the effects of gravity have left them with stretched skin and less volume in their breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. Mastopexy is a procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts, and can also reduce the size of the areola. Breast of any size can be lifted, but the results may not last as long in heavy breasts.
