A breast lift, also known as mastopexy raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast profile.
New statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show breast lifts have grown 70% since 2000, outpacing breast implants 2-to-1.
In some cases, the areola becomes enlarged and a breast lift will reduce this as well. A breast lift can restore your breasts to a more youthful and uplifted figure.
A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:
- Weight fluctuations
What breast lift surgery won’t do
Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast.
If you want your breasts to look fuller, consider breast lift with breast augmentation surgery.
If you want smaller breasts, consider combining breast lift and breast reduction surgery.
