Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
A mastopexy, or breast lift can also be performed as a stand-alone procedure to raise the position of the nipple, rearrange the breast tissue for a more appealing shape, and to remove extra skin. This usually results in a slightly, or significantly, smaller breast depending on the amount of extra skin present. Smaller amounts of tissue can also be removed to achieve better symmetry or the ideal breast size. Scars may be a lollypop or anchor configuration depending on the amount of lifting required.

Especially with aesthetic treatments, seeing is believing. Please take some time to review our Mastopexy before and afters gallery. It will help you set expectations, and may help you discover questions you have about the procedure. Some of the answers to your questions may be found in the vendor brochures and educational materials, available for download on this page. In the patient education section of our site, you’ll find an informative blog, videos and podcasts on this topic and many other aesthetic treatments.
