Sagging breasts are the reason why many women may want to seriously consider breast lift surgery. The mastoprexy is the most commonly performed form of breast lift surgery. In this kind of breast lift, the nipple is positioned higher on the wall of the chest. The good part of this procedure is that it can be done on an outpatient basis. There is no overnight stay in the hospital, and the whole process lasts three hours. It is done under general anesthesia, so you may want to stay in the hospital for a night. Stitches are removed within three weeks, and a visible positive change will be seen in your breasts – they will be upright, and all the loose skin will have disappeared.
