Breast Lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure performed to raise and shape the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the neighboring supportive tissues. The goal is to achieve firmer, youthful and well-shaped breasts. During the operation, the nipples and areolas are relocated to the ideal position.*2 If there is an asymmetry, it is also corrected. In this way, your breasts will be in a better shape and have a more uplifted form.Learn More

After having this procedure, you will have a more positive self-image. Your new reshaped, youthful, feminine, and better-proportioned breasts will boost your self-confidence.
