A Breast Lift (also known as Mastopexy) is a mammoplasty procedure that surgically relocates the breasts to a higher location on the chest wall, removes excess loose skin, and thus tightens and reshapes the breast to make it firm and youthful looking.
Childbirth, age and significant weight loss can all take their toll on women’s bodies – in particular with breasts – for many women breast uplift surgery can offer a way to regain their body confidence. Breast uplift surgery can be combined with breast augmentation surgery to give you fuller breasts and correcting their position on the body. If you have found that your breasts have lost their fullness and are not as supported as you would like them to be, breast uplift surgery could be the solution.
THE PROCEDURE FOR BREAST UPLIFT SURGERY
Breast uplift surgery works by making an incision on each breast, the skin is then lifted and stitched in its new position and excess skin removed. The nipples will then be removed and repositioned to ensure that your newly positioned breasts look as natural as possible. If there is a lack of natural breast tissue and you are looking for a fuller effect, your surgeon may recommend that you combine the procedure with breast augmentation, which involves inserting breast implants to add fullness to the breasts.
