Over time, a woman’s breasts often lose their youthful shape and firmness along with skin elasticity. These changes can result from: Pregnancy,
Breastfeeding, Weight fluctuations, Aging, and Genetics. Mastopexy surgery involves removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape, raise, and firm the breast.
What breast lifts don’t do…
Mastopexy surgery will not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast. If you want fuller breasts, consider mastopexy combined with breast augmentation surgery. If you want smaller breasts, consider combining breast lift and breast reduction surgery.
