In brief: Equals "breast lift"

A Mastopexy is the medical term for a breast lift.
It is typically used to raise the position of a low nipple on the breast mound. Breast lifts are commonly performed in co binational with breast reductions. The type of breast lift scar will depend on the degree of sagging (ptosis) as well as the surgeon's recommendations.
