Mastopexy (Breast lift) is an operation that improves the shape and position of the breast on the chest wall.
With age, pregnancy, breast feeding, weight change and the forces of gravity, come the stretching of the breast skin and ligaments, resulting in sagging or drooping. Simply put, over a woman’s lifetime, breasts lose their shape and firmness.
Mastopexy aims to restore the breast to a more youthful appearance.
If a woman’s breasts are small, or have lost significant volume after breast feeding or weight loss, mastopexy can be combined with the use of breast implants to increase the shape, firmness and size of breasts. This procedure is known as augmentation mastopexy.
Scar placement will vary according to the mastopexy technique used.
