A breast lift or mastopexy can elevate the nipple to a more youthful, attractive position, while giving the breast a more perky appearance. If necessary, the size of the areola can be reduced. The overall shape of the breast is improved as well. The real benefit to having this procedure is how it makes you feel about yourself. Women who have this procedure enjoy improved self-esteem and more self-confidence. Patients often report greater enjoyment in their intimate lives with their significant others as a result of feeling better about themselves.
