Many women may not desire to change their breasts size (reduce or enhance). However, they may be unhappy with their sagging and droopy breasts. As women get older the breast tend to lose elasticity and firmness. Other reasons such as pregnancy, breast feeding and weight fluctuation may accelerate the process.

Mastopexy or breast lift is a surgery that aims to treat breast sagginess and improve their shape and firmness. The procedure involves removing excess skin, and repositioning the areoles to get a more youthful appearance.

How is breast lift surgery done ?

The surgeon will perform with general anesthesia. He will first determine the new position of the areoles that suites the new breast shape. Then he will make incisions around the nipples and extend it downward to the breast creases.

After removing excess skin and areoles repositioning into a higher position, the surgeon will lift up the skin to form the new breast shape. To close the incision he may use layered sutures to maintain the internal tissues. Stitches, skin adhesive or medical tape may be used to close skin incisions.
