In brief: Mastopexy

A mastopexy or breast lift can done in a number of patterns or stencils if you will depending the level of the nipple relative to the breast fold at the bottom of the breast.
If there are existing scars from other surgery then these are utilized first to disguise the scar. One effective method using to use a circular scar around the areola.

In brief: Primarily scars

Both internal and external scars are the primary concern.
While a lift will later the position of the nipple to the breast mound and crease, it will not necessarily achieve fullness which will require an implant or fat grafting. Other isis include recurrent ptosis (sag), infection, bleeding, partial or complete loss of nipple sensation, interference with surgical, oncologist or mammo graphic eval.

In brief: Mastopexy risks

Are many... Nipple issues including numbness, loss, and asymmetry as well as poor scarring around the areola or breast (lollipop or anchor incisions), and breast asymmetries, fat necrosis and masses are just a few.
But you will usually have perkier breast that allows you to go braless at times. Only you can decide if this is worth it to you.

In brief: Scars and recurrence

Mastopexy surgery requires incisions which obviously result in scars, however well healed.
There is also recurrence of ptosis (sagging) over time. That being said, the benefits for those women who have significant deformity is worth accepting the negatives.
