Learn more about breast lift plastic surgery by viewing graphic illustrations of the breast lift cosmetic surgery procedure. You will see how a typical patient might look before breast lift surgery, during the mastopexy procedure, and after surgery.
Mastopexy patient shown before breast lift surgery with sagging breasts and low position of nipples.
Incisions following the breast’s natural contour define the area of excision and the new location for the nipple. Skin in the shaded area is removed and the nipple moved higher.
Skin formerly located above and to the sides of the nipple is brought down and together to reshape the breast.
The postoperative patient shown with scars resulting from a commonly performed mastopexy breast lift technique. Scars are around the areola, extending vertically down the breast and horizontally along the crease underneath the breast.
