Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery improves the aesthetics of the breast by correcting the droop, raising the breasts on the chest wall and resizing the nipple areola complex. The lift can be combined with an implant to enhance shape and how particular bras and bikinis fit.


With age, pregnancy, breast feeding and weight fluctuations, the breasts will eventually sag and droop. A breast lift can help restore the shape and position of the sagging breast. A breast lift offers more youthful breast contours and boost confidence and self – esteem. Mr Athanassopoulos combines a breast lift with breast augmentation for patients who have small drooping breasts to help lift the nipples and provide fullness in the upper part of the breast.
