Mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, is a surgical procedure that is used to raise and reshape sagging breasts. The procedure is typically performed on women who have experienced changes in their breast shape and size due to factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging.
During the procedure, the surgeon will make incisions on the breast, typically around the areola and down to the breast crease. The surgeon will then remove excess skin and reposition the breast tissue and nipples to create a more youthful and lifted appearance. In some cases, the surgeon may also use breast implants to increase the size of the breast.
It’s important to note that mastopexy is not a weight loss surgery, and it is not suitable for women who are significantly overweight. A qualified plastic surgeon will evaluate each case individually and recommend the best course of treatment.
It’s important to have realistic expectations and to understand that the outcome of the surgery cannot be guaranteed. A qualified plastic surgeon will be able to discuss the expected outcome and the best course of treatment for each individual case.
