Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure that raises and firms the breasts. Excess skin is removed to tighten the surrounding tissue and to reshape and support the new breast contour. The internal breast tissue is usually reshaped as well.
Breast lift surgery is designed to reshape and tighten the breast contour by removing excess skin. This gives the breasts a more firm and raised appearance. A breast lift can also reduce the size of the areola, which can become enlarged over time.
Breast lift surgery is a highly individualised procedure and may not be suitable for everyone. Dr Theile will assess your condition and general health, and plan the treatment that is best suited to you.
Before you decide on breast lift surgery, there are some important issues to keep in mind. Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast.
If you want your breasts to look fuller or smaller, you might want to consider either breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery.
It is generally recommended to wait until breast development, child birth and breastfeeding have stopped before undertaking breast lift surgery.
Although breasts of any size can be lifted, the results may not be as long-lasting in women with heavier breasts.
