MASTOPEXY / BREAST LIFT SURGERY
Breast lift surgery is also known as mastopexy. Breast lift surgery is employed for lifting up of breast and nipple to its natural position which may have become saggy following severe weight loss or pregnancy. With most breast lifts, the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position in order to create a natural look. The procedure reshapes the breast and tightens the skin envelope to give a more fuller and projected appearance.
With increasing age, the elasticity of the skin goes away and the breast loses its shape and these changes result in saggy breasts. During pregnancy, due to hormonal changes the breasts enlarge in size and overlying skin stretches.
Breast lift surgery in Lahore Pakistan will not only improve the sagginess of the breasts but also reposition the nipples to a higher position and gives the more pleasing breast shape with or without clothes.
Breast size can also be increased with implants during breast lift surgery.
