Pregnancy, nursing, excessive weight loss or gain, and the natural ageing process can cause breasts to lose their natural elasticity. Breasts may begin to sag or hang.

A breast lift, or mastopexy can take years off your body by correcting a drooping bust line and restoring your curves to their youthful state. During the procedure, excess skin and tissue are trimmed away and the breasts are tightened and lifted. The nipples will be repositioned to create the most natural-looking results.

The risks involved in breast lifts include scarring, temporary bruising and swelling. Nonetheless, breast lifts are considered an extremely safe and effective procedure.

A breast lift generally takes one to two hours to complete.

Choosing a breast surgery

Some people get confused when choosing the right breast surgery for their desires. For example, a breast lift does not necessarily change the size of your breasts or give your breasts a rounder shape. If you want to change the size and shape of your breasts, you may want to consider either breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery.
