Breast lift or Mastopexy is designed to improve the shape and position of the breasts without reducing their size. Sagging (ptosis) of the breasts may occur with weight loss, pregnancy, breast-feeding and generalized aging. A breast lift procedure cannot be performed without some degree of scarring. However, the scars will heal and fade over time.
When the nipple and most of the gland remains above the inframammary fold, the breast may be correctable with implant–based surgery. This is also called augmentation mastopexy and is generally performed when the main problem is volume deficiency.
If the nipple location is below the inframammary fold and most of the breast tissue is similarly below the fold, then correction can only be achieved through a breast lift.
