Breast Lift Surgery
Known as Mastopexy, breast lift surgery is performed by a cosmetic surgeon to return a youthful look to a women's chest region as breasts, over time, lose much of their shape and firmness to childbirth, nursing and the natural loosening of skin elasticity.
Mastopexy reverses many of the effects of aging and gravitational pull, although this breast surgery may decrease the size of the areola, the darker tissue around the nipple.
Frequently combined with breast augmentation, the surgical insertion of saline or silicone breast implants, mastopexy is carried out to enhance size and density of breasts. This procedure particularly attracts women who have lost breast mass and firmness post pregnancy. If you are mid pregnancy or plan to become pregnant, it is prudent to postpone a plastic surgery breast lift as the acts of childbirth and nursing will stretch breast tissue.
