A Breast Lift, also known as “Mastopexy,” is a surgical procedure designed to reshape breast tissue, improving the breasts’ elongated appearance. It also involves elevating the nipple position and reducing the size of the areola, the pigmented area surrounding the nipple. Additionally, this procedure can decrease the volume and weight of the breasts, enhancing their overall appearance and comfort.

Our Preferences

We favor a small scar technique for our procedures, utilizing an incision around the areola and a vertical incision down the breast. In most cases, there’s no need to add an “anchor scar” along the bottom of the breast. Additionally, we often incorporate liposuction to enhance the contour of the lateral breast and the axillary region, particularly for patients with extra tissue in these areas.
