Breast Lifts

breast lifts

Mastopexy is designed to lift or change the shape of a woman's breasts, creating a lovelier, more youthful contour, and can be performed at any age.

A breast lift raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. The clinical name is mastopexy.

You may be a good candidate for breast lift surgery if one of these descriptions apply to you:


  • breasts are of satisfactory size
  • breasts lack substance or firmness
  • nipples and areolas that point downward, especially if they are positioned below the breast crease

Breast lift procedures can last a lifetime, but as you age, the breast will continue to sag and may require a revision or an additional breast lift or breast implant augmentation. Consult one of our surgeon's to find out which procedure is best for you.
