A breast lift is a surgical procedure that is designed to provide a physical lift to sagging breasts and restore a youthful look, without adding foreign substances or changing the breast size like in breast augmentation.
Breast lift surgery is medically known as mastopexy, and it consists of making incisions, moving breast tissue up and repositioning the nipples so they are in proportion with the new breast contour.

Common Reasons for Breast Lifts
Since the goal of a breast lift is to lift the breasts, the overriding reason any woman wants the procedure is to lift sagging breasts. However, there are specific reasons women come to this realization, including:
- Lost breast volume due to weight loss or breast feeding
- Sagging breasts caused by weight gain
- Sagging breasts caused by normal aging and gravity
- A desire for perkier, more youthful-looking breasts without having implants
Breast Lift Benefits
As with breast augmentation, breast lift surgery provides both physical and psychological benefits to women of all ages. Some of the most common benefits include:
- Improved body image and self-esteem
- Increased self-confidence
- More intimate relationship with your spouse or significant other
- Breasts that look full, youthful and perky.
