Breast lift (mastopexy)

If you are be happy with the size of your breasts but not with the degree of droop you may wish to consider a mastopexy operation. This involves reduction of the skin envelope and re-siting the nipple.  It is very like a breast reduction operation except it removes excess skin but very little or no breast volume. However, because the breast tissue is “repacked” more firmly into the smaller envelope your breasts will seem a little smaller. Click on breast reduction since most of what it written there is relevant to mastopexy except:

  • Nipple sensation is not usually affected.  
  • The operation usually takes somewhat less time – about 2 hours.
  • You often don’t need drains
  • You may be able to avoid an overnight stay in hospital

If your breasts are both droopy and too small – this sometimes happens after pregnancy – a mastopexy operation may needed in addition to breast augmentation.
