WHAT IS A BREAST LIFT?
Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) put simply is a repositioning of the breasts to a higher position on the chest. It is a very common procedure among women who are experiencing a drop in the position of their breasts as a result of the natural aging process, along with other factors such as pregnancy and breast feeding, as well as large weight loss or gain.
Breast lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. The procedure may last anywhere from two to three hours, or longer if breast implants are also being placed. The degree of the lift is used to determine the incision type.
