Breast Lift / Mastopexy

Make those breasts perky again

A woman's breasts often change with time, losing their shape and firmness. This can be due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, or aging. Breast Lift (Mastopexy) is a cosmetic procedure aimed at reshaping the breast to give it a more youthful and perky appearance while maintaining the size. This surgical procedure is often combined with Breast Augmentation (Breast Implant).
