Commonly referred to as breast lifting surgery, mastopexy repositiones the areola and breast tissue, removing excess skin and compressing the tissue to form the new breast contour.
A woman's breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can occur due to:
- Weight fluctuations;
Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and mastopexy may reduce it. The procedure can have a rejuvenating character, since the profile achieved in the postoperative period is that of a young and firm breast.
Surgery does not significantly change the size of the breasts or fill the upper part of the breast. If you want to have bigger breasts, consider augmentation surgery. If you want smaller breasts, consider the combination of breast lift and reduction surgery.
