Overview

Breast lift (mastopexy) restores perkiness and reshapes the female breast that's drooping and elongated. Enlargement during pregnancy, weight loss, and just generalized aging can alter breast shape.

During the lifting procedure the nipples can be repositioned and stretched out areolae can be reduced to a size commensurate with the reshaped, more youthful breast.

Mastopexy can be combined with breast implants to increase breast size or replace lost upper pole fullness. Recovery usually takes 1 week.
