The breast lift procedure, or mastopexy, is performed to rejuvenate the appearance of the breasts by correcting breast sagging. Breast sagging occurs in women at various ages in various degrees of severity and there are some things that can exaggerate or accelerate breast sagging such as having overly large breasts, genetics, fluctuations in weight, and pregnancy and nursing. Some women feel very self-conscious about their sagging breast appearance, particularly in intimate situations. Through the breast lift procedure, the breasts are lifted to a more youthful, perky position–in some cases the areola may also be re-positioned to match the new placement of the breasts.
The breast lift alone will not increase the size or fullness of the breasts. Some women wish to both enhance their breast size as well as reduce breast sagging and in these cases a combination breast augmentation with breast lift may be performed to achieve the desired results.
