ABOUT MASTOPEXY - CORRECTION OF BREAST PTOSIS
Mastopexy is the medical name for a breast lift. In this procedure, a plastic surgeon raises and reshapes your breasts to give them a firmer, rounder look. The surgery also removes extra skin around your breast and reduces the size of your areola — the colored circle around your nipple.
As you get older, your breasts lose their elasticity and firmness. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight gain or loss can accentuate this process. You might want to have this surgery if your breasts have started to sag or droop. If you’d also like to increase the size of your breasts, you can sometimes have breast augmentation at the same time as mastopexy.
