Mastopexy or breast lift is performed to reverse the changes caused by pregnancy, gravity, age, and weight changes. Mastopexy restores a more youthful position , shape and fullness to the breast.
Repositioning the nipple and reducing the size of the areola have a positive effect on a youthful look and the lift can be, and frequently is , combined with breasts augmentation.
The addition of the augmentation to the mastopexy, allows the complete restoration of fullness to re-establish balance of the bust line to the waist and hips. Many women experience postpartum involution of the breasts (loss of volume and contour after pregnancy) and the loss of volume and shape is worse with each succeeding pregnancy.
This occurs through no fault of your own, it is unfortunately programmed by nature. Mastopexy done with or without augmentation absolutely will make it possible to get even with Mother Nature.
