It is an innate tendency for breasts to lose their shape with time. Factors such as pregnancy, breast feeding, and loss of weight may speed up this change as the fibrous bands which typically support the breast become lax and the skin loses its elasticity with time. Therefore, the breast envelope becomes larger while the volume of the breast tissues does not increase or decrease.
Mastopexy (breast uplift) is a surgical procedure to tighten the skin envelope around the breast and elevate the level of the nipple to produce a rejuvenated shape.
Breast uplift surgery can be combined with a breast reduction or augmentation. A consultation would be needed for assessment and a suitable recommendation would be discussed.
