Breast Lift and Mastopexy

A breast lift (mastopexy) is a surgical procedure that makes the breasts look younger.

Mastopexy is a plastic surgery that reforms the breast shape by repositioning the breast tissue and removing excess breast skin from sagging breasts. A breast lift can be combined with breast implants for complete breast augmentation and rejuvenation.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy) Incisions & Scars

During a breast lift, plastic surgeons reposition the nipple to a central position on the raised breast and remove the excess skin. Breast lift techniques use a variety of incisions, such as around the areola, from the bottom of the areola to the crease under the breast and along the natural breast crease. In the months following a breast lift, incisions heal fairly quickly, however, breast lift scars will continue to become fainter and lighter for up to a year.

To get the best results and minimize scarring, The plastic surgeon Dr. F-Caron will recommend the ideal approach for your body during your consultation.
