Breast Lift Surgery Overview
A breast lift can improve the appearance of your breasts in several ways. It elevates your breast tissue, repositions your nipple and areola, and enhances your overall breast shape. Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast however. If you want your breasts to look fuller, consider breast lift and augmentation surgery and if you want smaller breasts, consider combining breast lift and breast reduction surgery.
It is normal to be afraid and concerned about having surgery and emotional support is very important. Often times, family and friends cannot give the encouragement you need due to a lack of understanding. Because plastic surgery is a cosmetic elective, people do not realize how important the surgery is to you and they do not offer the right information to assist you along what should be an exciting journey.

Breast Lift Surgery Facts
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is designed to enhance your appearance by lifting your breasts to a higher position. Over the years, women experience the toll of gravity on their breasts due to pregnancy, breast-feeding, genetics, aging, and extreme weight loss or gain. Your skin loses elasticity, your breasts lose shape, and the loss of volume causes sagging to occur. Mastopexy is a surgical procedure that raises and firms your breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support your new breast contour. Your breast lift surgery can be achieved through a variety of incision patterns and techniques.
The appropriate technique for you will be determined based on:
- Your breast size and shape
- The size and position of your areolas
- The degree of breast sagging
- Your skin quality and elasticity as well as the amount of extra skin that you have
