Over time, the breasts undergo changes in response to factors such as genetics, pregnancy, nursing, weight loss, or lack of skin elasticity that comes with sun damage and age. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a procedure that raises and reshapes ageing breasts. It can provide a more youthful appearance and increase self-esteem and confidence.
For those who are happy with the size/volume of their breasts and just want them to be rejuvenated and lifted to a more youthful position, the breast lift alone can be performed. For those who want their breasts lifted and also want more volume added, a breast lift can be performed in conjunction with an implant. The augmentation mastopexy, or breast lift with implants, therefore not only reshapes and rejuvenates the sagging breast but also increases cup size.
Of course, a reduction of breast tissue can also be performed in conjunction with a lift – for more information on this topic, see the Breast Reduction page.

A breast lift, or mastopexy, can help restore a firmer, shapelier breast, which will improve body contours and give the breasts a perky, youthful appearance. It is also used to treat patients who suffer medical issues with sagging breasts such as rashes or skin breakdown under the breast. Breast lift surgery has come a long way in recent times. Multiple techniques exist that fulfil your goals with minimal scarring. Our surgeons prefer short-scar breast lift surgery, creating beautiful, natural looking, and harmonious breasts with minimal scarring.
