Mastopexy (Breast Lift) In Mastopexy, drooping and sagging breast are tightened, reshaped and lifted up. Sagging breast may be post pregnancy or due to ageing. Specific part of the skin is removed from the lower part of the breast and around the areola, the skin is pulled together and sutured tightening the breast. The nipple and areola are relocated higher to give a normal appearance. Breast lift is done under general anaesthesia. A silicon implant often needs to be placed at the same time to enlarge the breast in addition to tightening. This surgery usually requires one day hospital stay.
