Age is one of the many factors that can affect a woman’s body; other factors include breastfeeding, pregnancy, hormonal changes, and weight loss. Mastopexy, more commonly known as a “breast lift” procedure, aims to reverse those negative changes and restore the breast’s appearance.
Contrary to popular belief, breast lift surgery is not the same as breast enhancement or breast augmentation surgery. Breast lift surgery is different in that it does not alter your breast size.
Mastopexy is a procedure that lifts and restores the shape of sagging breasts by removing excess skin and reshaping damaged breast tissue. In some cases, the nipples are repositioned to give a more natural look. The procedure usually takes one to two hours.
The procedure has two variations: the crescent breast lift and the vertical breast lift. The former is meant only for repositioning the nipple while the latter is a more complete procedure that involves the reshaping of breast tissue and the removal of excess skin and fat.

The incisions will definitely not be visible under normal clothing. However, minor scarring is expected but will not be permanent. Any scar that you may get will be less visible 12 to 18 months post surgery.
The surgery will be conducted in a private hospital.
Most of our patients are allowed to go home right after the surgery. However, cases can differ from patient to patient.
Our clients are usually allowed to resume work in two weeks time. Physical activity can be continued right away provided they are not strenuous in nature.
General anesthetics will be used for this kind of surgery.
Each person’s healing process is different and the duration can vary. However, as a general rule you should expect to wait at least several weeks to get an accurate picture.
Breastfeeding will only be affected if your nipple is moved or if you have to undergo a nipple graft. Otherwise, breastfeeding should not be a problem.
