Breasts naturally change over the course of time, resulting in a change of appearance for a number of reasons: pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, weight fluctuation, ageing, gravity, hereditary traits.
A Breast Uplift operation ( Mastopexy) is conducted by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissues in turn reshaping and supporting the new lifted breast contour. A breast uplift can rejuvenate your breast profile so that it is youthful and uplifted, however it does not significantly change the size of your breasts.
If you require your breasts to look fuller, you may wish to consider breast augmentation surgery in conjunction with a breast lift procedure. If you desire smaller breasts, you could consider combining a breast lift procedure with breast reduction surgery.
Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift can reduce this too if required.
Breast lift surgery can result not only physical improvement, it can also improve psychological well-being with a boost to self-confidence and self-image.
