Mastopexy (breast lift surgery) succeeds in reasserting and raising a sagging and / or empty breast (ptosis) by regaining a rejuvenated breast. The excess skin is eliminated by a careful technique so it always requires specialized medical equipment.
The sagging or flaccidity of the breasts can be caused by time, pregnancy and weight loss. This problem affects the nipple and areola as well as the glandular and fat tissue, the skin stretches and most of the mammal tissue places itself in the lower part of the bust. This can happen both to small and large breasts.
Mastopexy can be performed with or without silicone implants, depending on the characteristics of the breast and patient’s desires. Each technique will be discussed between patient and surgeon to agree on the best decision for each individual case.
