A mastopexy is a breast lift. Sagging breasts are often the result of weight loss, pregnancy, breast feeding, or the aging process. Women seek a breast lift at any age, but oftentimes, women who have recently completed their families are interested in a breast lift to help improve the shape and appearance of their breasts.
Mastopexy may involve lifting and reshaping of the existing breast tissue only, or may also combine placement of a breast implant. Breast implants help replace lost breast volume and give a fuller, firmer appearance, particularly at the upper aspect of the breasts.
