What is breast lifting and rejuvenation?
A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, lifts the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support a new, more youthful breast contour.
This is accomplished by removing a small strip of tissue from above your nipple and areola to reposition them into an elevated position. For more extreme cases of ptosis, a larger incision around the entire nipple and areola may be used.
Breast lift surgery doesn’t change the amount of breast tissue that you have, the size of your breasts or the roundness of the upper part of your breasts. For complete rejuvenation, you may want to consider a lift plus a breast augmentation, performed during the same surgery, to both lift and reshape your breasts to a more youthful profile.
