Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Breast lift surgery is a way to gather all of your natural breast tissue into one location by raising it up on the chest. Typically patients enjoy more upper pole fullness after surgery. The breast will remain the same size, though this technique can be combined with implants to enlarge the breasts if desired. We also reduce the size of the Nipple Areolar Complex (NAC), which is the pigmented portion of the breast.
