What is a Breast Lift (Mastopexy)?
A breast lift is a cosmetic procedure that is used to raise sagging breasts by changing the size, shape, and elevation of the breasts. Sagging breasts can be caused by a number of factors, including pregnancy, genetics, or aging. Breast lifts can also be used to correct enlarged nipples or breast asymmetry.
What is Involved?
- The procedure is done as a day surgery in our Surgical Centre. A general anesthetic is used.
- The design of the incisions can vary but usually include incisions around the nipple- areolar complex and in the crease under the breast.
- The nipple is brought up to a more youthful position as well as extra skin from near the bottom of the breast removed.
- The insertion of an implant as well may be an option.
