Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) is performed to correct sagging, although there is no major problem with breast volume. During the surgery, excess breast skin is removed and the breast tissue is reshaped; the nipple is brought to the ideal position and the dark colored area (areola) around the nipple is reduced. Thus, the breast is given a new uplifted form. Due to gravity and aging, breasts lose their volume and sag. Breast lift aesthetics are applied to make these breasts upright and shaped again.

Breast lift operations can be performed for the reduction of big and sagging breasts as well as augmentation of hollow and sagging breasts after birth, breastfeeding, or weight loss. Breast lift surgery is performed using techniques and principles similar to those of breast reduction surgery. It involves only the changes applied to the shape of the breast without reducing the breast tissue.
