The mastopexy procedure re-contours loose, sagging breasts. Frequently, a woman elects this surgery after losing a considerable amount of weight, or losing volume and tone in her breasts after having children. The result may be firmer, higher, more youthful looking breasts.
Although the goal of every surgeon is to minimize the sight of the scars, scars will appear around the areola, extending vertically down the breast and horizontally along the crease underneath the breast. The breast lift scars are permanent but tend to fade over time.
