Mastopexy, also called a Breast Lift, is a procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the breasts by lifting them to a more youthful position. The breast tissue is tightened and reshaped, while the excess skin is removed to create the perkier appearance. Sometimes the areola is resized or repositioned to better match the rejuvenated breasts. Breast Lift surgery has helped many women enhance their self-confidence and feel better about their breasts after pregnancy, breastfeeding, changes in weight, or gravity have created an unwanted sagging breast appearance.

Mastopexy may not be the best option for everyone; ideal candidates are in good health, non-smokers, with realistic expectations for the procedure. The mastopexy procedure is not designed to alter the size of the breasts. Some women who wish to both enhance breast size as well as lift the breasts may choose to combine the breast augmentation procedure with the breast lift procedure.
