In mastopexy operation, drooping and sagging breasts are tightened, recontoured and lifted up, giving them a younger appearance. Also the nipple and the areola are re-located to their normal higher position to give a younger and normal look. If necessary, the size of the areola is also reduced at the same time. The scars following surgery are usually barely visible. A silicone implant can be placed at the same time to enlarge the breast.
