General Information

Breast lift (mastopexy) is performed to improve the appearance and shape of drooping or sagging breasts in women who have lost volume in their breast tissue due to massive weight loss, breastfeeding or pregnancy. This procedure restores and reshapes the breast into a more lifted, youthful, and natural shape. In many cases, breast lift is performed in conjunction with breast implantation for a better appearance.

Mastopexy can benefit women with

  1. 1. Sagging or droopy breasts
  2. 2. Decreased breast volume after breastfeeding
  3. 3. Decreased breast volume due to massive weight loss

How is Mastopexy performed?

First, the severity of breast ptosis (droopiness) is determined to treat each case with the most suitable surgical method and incision. A variety of factors such as: droopiness, breast size and preference for scar location are considered for the best results.

  1. a. Breast Augmentation
    If you have small breasts with minor to moderate grade of sagging, breast implants alone can correct the nipple-areola height by 1-2 cm without any lift.
  2. b. Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
    This is an upgraded incision method of the combination of the periareolar and anchor pattern incision. The incision is made along the areola and a vertical incision is made underside of the breast. This method leaves less scarring than ‘Anchor Incision’ and preserves nipple sensation.
  3. c. Breast Augmentation & Lift
    If your breasts are small and severely drooping at the same time, both breast implantation and breast lift should be performed together to increase the breast size and improve your nipple-areola position.
