A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a procedure designed to change the position of the breast.
A breast lift procedure can be useful for improving the appearance of droopy, sagging breasts due to some of the following common causes:

Breast augmentation surgery, sometimes referred to as a “boob job,” focuses on increasing the size and shape of the breast by using saline or silicone implants.
