Breast-lift or Mastopexy firms and tightens the breast. It raises the nipple on the profile of the breast and is often done in conjunction with breast implants. Over the year’s factors such as pregnancy, breast-feeding a baby, and the forces of gravity take their toll on a woman’s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. Breast- lift or, Mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If an implant is inserted at the time of the lift, a silicone gel implant is typically used. The silicone implant is lighter and does not put as much pressure and strain on the breast tissue. Although no surgery can permanently delay all the effects of gravity, a breast-lift is a very rewarding and satisfying surgery to perform. Patients are so thrilled to be able to find clothes that fit well and not to be constrained by having to wear a bra at all times.
