Medically known as mastopexy, a breast lift is a cosmetic plastic surgery treatment that is carried out to rejuvenate breasts that have become somewhat droopy or saggy in appearance, returning them to a more attractive and youthful position. 

A breast lift will involve the removal of excess skin and tightening of the surrounding tissue to generate a breast contour that is more youthful. A lift can also reduce the size of the areolas if they have become enlarged over time.

A Perkier Chest

If you want to improve the profile of your breasts, both with and without clothing, breast lift surgery is the most straightforward solution. Your breasts will look a lot rounder and stand up taller within a few weeks of having the procedure. It results in a much perkier and youthful look.

Improved Symmetry
