About the Procedure
Breasts can be a less attractive shape after pregnancy and breast feeding, and also after significant weight loss. Sometimes, however, a poor breast shape can result from unlucky genetics.
Breast lift (mastopexy) aims to lift the nipple position and produce a perkier looking breast.
Various techniques can be used depending on the problem and what type of result the woman wants to achieve.
The simplest technique is a peri-areolar (around the nipple) method that leaves a scar just around the nipple. It is more suited to smaller breasts which are mostly loose skin.
Other approaches include a vertical scar and allow for a more powerful lifting effect.
The nipple is slid-up into a better position during the operation, at which time the breast tissue is remodelled to optimise the duration of effect.
Recently fat transfer to the breast is a technique that is gaining in popularity and may suit some women who want to add volume to their breasts.
