Breast Uplift (Mastopexy)
Breast Uplift Surgery (Mastopexy) in birmingham
Mastopexy is a procedure that raises, uplifts and reshapes the breast giving a youthful appearance to the breasts. Surgery involves an incision that is made around the areola and extends downwards towards the lower end of the breast and looks like a ‘key hole’. Sometimes further incision horizontally is added along the breast crease. Breast uplift does not add to the breast tissue but does change the overall shape and position of both nipple and the breast. Breast implants can be inserted to increase size and improve firmness.
