Introduction

What is Breast Lift Surgery?

A breast lift, medically known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to raise and reshape the breasts, providing them with a more youthful and lifted appearance. This cosmetic surgery addresses concerns such as sagging breasts, stretched skin, and a loss of firmness, which can result from factors like aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or significant weight fluctuations.

Key Aspects of Breast Lift Surgery (Sagging and Ptosis):

  • breast-icon
    Definition: Breast ptosis refers to the sagging or drooping of the breasts which creates a descent of the nipple relative to the breast fold and lower pole skin redundancy.
  • breast-icon
    Causes: Aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding and genetics can contribute to the loss of breast elasticity.
