A breast lift is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that is also known as a mastopexy. Breast lift surgery aims to restore the shape and firmness in breasts that have become ‘pendulous’, or to put it more bluntly, more ‘saggy’.
Like any breast cosmetic plastic surgery procedure – the objective is to improve the overall look of the breasts, which is a strong symbol of femininity and focal point on the female body. Therefore, it is easy to understand that a woman’s confidence and self-esteem may be compromised if they feel unhappy about the appearance of their breasts. This commonly occurs in mature women who have seen their breasts firmness and elasticity decline due to aging, weight gain and/or loss, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, leading to drooping, sagging breast.
Breast lifts can help overcome these physical dilemmas to restore and revitalize a woman’s sense of femininity, sexuality, and self-confidence by reducing the sag of the breasts, which will enhance the appearance of the breasts and improve the woman’s overall appearance.
It is important to know that breast lift surgery will not increase the size and volume of the breasts, but will only affect the shape and firmness of the breasts as they are lifted upwards. Sometimes, breast lift surgery is performed in conjunction with breast augmentation if there is insufficient breast tissue left – this may significantly increase the size of the breasts. It is recommended that breast lift surgery should only be performed on women who have finished having children. Women between the ages of 35 to 50 most commonly undergo breast lifts.
