Breast lift / mastopexy

Breast Lift Specialists


At Quaba Plastic Surgery, we have expertise in all aspects of breast lift surgery.


A Mastopexy or breast lift procedure involves lifting a breast that has succumbed to the effects of time and gravity. Breasts become saggy or droopy (breast ptosis) as a result of the natural aging process. This can occur after pregnancy or after weight loss. Breast ptosis is characterised by descent of the normal nipple position and the breast tissue. This results in a lack of fullness in the upper parts of the breast and a loss of the youthful appearance of the breast. Breast ptosis can affect younger women as well.

There are different types of breast lift procedure which are tailored to each individual. A mild droop can often be corrected by increasing the volume of the breast with a breast implant alone (see breast augmentation). More severe ptosis requires tightening of the skin and involves more scarring (similar to a breast reduction but without removing any breast volume).

Mastopexy procedures are often combined with removal of breast tissue (breast reduction) when excess breast tissue is present. Likewise, the procedure may be combined with a breast augmentation (implants) when there is an overall lack of breast volume (augmentation mastopexy). Augmentation mastopexy is generally regarded as a technically challenging procedure and great care is required in patient selection, counselling and operative technique.
