A breast lift or mastopexy surgery raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour without augmentation.
Nipple and areola are lifted, on garde toute la glande mammaire que l’on reconcentre pour faire un sein moins étalée et qui ne tombe plus.
Surgery is made in sitting position. That way it is easier for the surgeon to see the degree of lifting needed and get the best result.
The incision is made around the areola. Another runs vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the crease underneath the breast. The third incision (rarely necessary) is horizontal beneath the breast and follows the natural curve of the breast crease.
Breast lift surgery generally is not covered by insurance.
