A breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is performed to raise the breasts level by removing excess skin that sags. It naturally tightens the surrounding tissue to fully reshape and make arrangements to support the new breast contour. For some women the areola becomes enlarged in size over time, and a breast lift will reduce this change in shape.
A breast lift can totally rejuvenate your figure with a new breast profile that is youthful . A woman's breasts mostly change over time, losing their ripe shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from the following points:
Breast lift surgery does not fully change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast. If you want your breasts to look fuller, consider combining breast lift and breast augmentation surgery together to get a satisfied result.
