A woman’s breasts often change over time because of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, loss of skin elasticity and other factors. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that breast lifts have grown 70% since 2000, outpacing breast implants 2-to-1.
A breast lift, also called mastopexy, enhances your natural appearance by surgically removing excess skin and redistributing existing breast tissue. It can provide a breast profile that is firmer and more youthful in appearance.
A breast lift alone does not change the size of the breast, but it may be performed in combination with a breast augmentation to add volume to the breasts.
