Mammopexy, also known as a breast lift, is a surgical procedure designed to correct sagging and drooping breasts. If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts due to factors such as pregnancy, lactation, aging, or weight changes, mammopexy may be the ideal solution for you.
During a mammopexy, the plastic surgeon will make strategic incisions around the areola and possibly in the breast fold. Through these incisions, excess skin will be removed, breast tissue will be repositioned, and the breasts will be lifted to a more youthful and aesthetic position. In some cases, adjustments to the size and shape of the areola can also be made to achieve a more proportionate appearance.
It is important to note that mammopexy does not increase the volume of the breasts. If you also want to increase the size of your breasts, mammopexy can be combined with augmentation mammoplasty using breast implants.
