What is a single breast lift?

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that repositions sagging breasts. During a single breast lift, one breast would be lifted to match the appearance of the other. A single breast lift is helpful in cases of breast asymmetry when one breast falls lower than the other.

Other reasons you may want or need a breast lift include:

  • Sagging breasts
  • Nipples fall below breast creases
  • Nipples point downward
  • Areolae have stretched out of proportion to the breast
