Breast Lift

It is a cosmetic procedure that is specifically developed to raise sagging breasts. The surgeon aligns and adjusts the size, shape, contour, and elevation of the breasts during this procedure. His mission is to restore a woman’s attractive proportionate bust while carefully protecting the viability of the nipple areola complex and maintaining the functional sensitivity of the breast for breast-feeding. If the candidate’s breasts are either little or too large in addition to being sagging, breast lift surgery may be combined with breast augmentation or breast reduction.
