Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Mastopexy is the lifting and tightening of the breast carried out mainly by the

tightening of the skin envelope and the subcutaneous soft tissues.

Usually, this is done by removing some of the skin, thus necessitating surgical scars,


Sometimes it can be done by using liposculpture techniques to tighten the skin, thus avoiding any surgical scars
