Augmentation Mastopexy:

Crescent Mastopexy or Breast Lift


Crescent Mastopexy with Breast Augmentation:   For mild breast sag or ptosis

Minimal  sag or  ptosis  may be corrected by  repositioning the nipple upwardly,   and  tightening  of  the  breast  apex    skin by excising,  or cutting,   a  crescent-shaped  piece of the excess skin from above the nipple.   Crescent Mastopexy allows the top of the areola to be repositioned upward by about 2-3cm, and  will  allow  the  nipple  to  move  up  about  1-1.5cm, and thus this relatively limited procedure is only occasionally appropriate..
