A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to improve the look of sagging breasts as a result of aging, weight loss, nursing, loss of elasticity, firmness, and other factors.

Breast implant removal and replacement surgery is a procedure where previously placed breast implants are removed and replaced. For removal, various options are available to you including what incision to use and whether or not to remove the capsule surrounding the implant. For replacement, options include replacement or not, different types of implants, the position of the implant (over or under the muscle) and doing a breast lift at the same time.
