A breast lift (mastopexy) is a great procedure for those who have sagging breasts due to aging or childbirth. A breast lift consists of removing excess skin around the areola, and possibly from the lower section of the breast, and shifting the skin of the breast in a way that tightens it. To achieve additional breast volume and projection, the insertion of a breast implant may be used. Through this process, the placement of the nipple and areola is enhanced and elevated to a higher and more youthful looking position.

Is a Breast Lift Right for You?
Ideal breast lift candidates are women who are seeking a remedy for drooping breasts. It is important to have realistic expectations about the results of mastopexy surgery. Although a breast lift can be performed on any size breasts, women with smaller breasts seem to attain the most benefits from mastopexy.
In general, a breast lift candidate should be a woman who:
-Is over the age of 18.
-Has drooping breasts (breasts with stretched skin and less volume than in the past).
-Is physically healthy and emotionally stable.
-Is not pregnant or breastfeeding (and does not plan to get pregnant).
-Does not have plans to loss excessive amounts of weight.
