• A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted. A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness.

    These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:

    • Pregnancy
    • Breastfeeding
    • Weight fluctuations
    • Aging
    • Gravity
    • Heredity

    Breast lift candidates

    You may be a candidate for breast augmentation surgery if:

    • You are physically healthy and maintain a stable weight
    • You do not smoke
    • You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts sag or have lost shape and volume
    • Your breasts have a flatter, elongated shape or are pendulous
    • When unsupported, your nipples fall below the breast crease
    • Your nipples and areolas point downward
    • You have stretched skin and enlarged areolas
    • One breast is lower than the other

    Breast lift recovery

    During your breast lift recovery, dressings or bandages will be applied to the incisions after the procedure is completed. You’ll need to wear an elastic bandage or support bra to minimize swelling and support your breasts as they heal. A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect.

    You will be given specific instructions that may include:

    • How to care for your breasts following surgery
    • Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection
    • Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health
    • When to follow up with your plastic surgeon.

    The results of your breast lift surgery are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover from surgery. The final results of your breast lift will appear over the next few months as breast shape and position continue to settle. The results of your breast lift surgery will be long lasting.  You’ll be able to retain your new look longer if you maintain your weight and keep a healthy lifestyle.
