Mastopexy (Breast Lift)

A variety of techniques are available to tighten, reshape or uplift the breasts. These range from the simplest, which is removal of a crescent of skin from around the areola (the pigmented part of the breast) to cutting out much skin and moving the nipple-areola to a higher position.

Your first consultation will help you to decide if uplift alone will meet your desires, or if implants might be desirable.
