Breast lift, or mastopexy, is surgery that raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. As women age, the breasts may begin to sag and stretch. This process is often accelerated by pregnancy and nursing. Mastopexy may be performed to create a more youthful contour and appearance.
Multiple surgical techniques may be used in a breast lift. The nipples are repositioned to their normal location while rejuvenating the breasts to a more youthful, firmer shape and appearance. Often, the stretched areola can be reduced to a more natural shape and size as well. The size and shape of scars are determined by the degree of sagging. Dr. Sharma will carefully examine you and consult with you on the proper procedure.
