Lift & Tighten Your Breast Contours

Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to lift and tighten the contours of the breasts. Over time, factors such as aging, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and gravity can lead to sagging breasts. A breast lift involves removing excess skin, repositioning the nipple and areola, and reshaping the breast tissue to achieve a more youthful and uplifted appearance. This procedure is ideal for individuals seeking to improve breast shape, restore firmness, and boost self-confidence.

Breast Lift FAQs

How long does breast lift surgery typically take?
