Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
In women, sagging breasts due to aging, childbirth, gaining and losing weight is the most frequent problem that negatively effects the body-image perception.
To correct sagging breasts, two procedures are performed, together or in different sessions.
These procedures are:
- Mastopexy (hanging up the breasts to correct sagging)
- Breast augmentation with silicone breast implants
When the main problem is emptiness of breast, then breast augmentation with implants is done together with correction of sagging. If the patient has good amount of breast tissue but with sagging, then reshaping and lifting of the breast is adequate.
The operations in which breast lifting and breast augmentation with implants are applied together, are the most technically demanding operations of plastic surgery.
