Breast lift or Mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that lifts the breast tissue and nipple. It is a technique that removes and tightens excess skin on and around the breast to restore a youthful, perky breast appearance. It is helpful at treating breast sagging due to various reason like childbearing and breastfeeding, caused by age and significant weight loss.
There are several methods for performing the procedure, but it mostly includes removing excess skin. The areola is also reduced in size during a mastopexy. Breast tissue is not removed; therefore, volume of the breast is not reduced.

breast projects naturally forward and sits higher on the chest wall.
