What is a Mastopexy?

A mastopexy is a breast lift that raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift can reduce this as well. Breast lift surgery does not change the size of your breast. If you want your breasts to look fuller, or smaller, you may want to consider either breast augmentation or breast reduction.
