Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) includes the removal of excess skin and reshaping of breasts to make them look firmer and younger. During the operation, the breasts are raised and the nipples are repositioned. Large areolas can be reduced to better suit the proportions of the body.

If the breasts have lost their volume, implants or fat transfer can be used to restore it. However, it is advisable to do a breast augmentation separately to the breast lift, in order to optimize the results for both operations and minimize scarring.
