Breast Lift

A breast lift, also called mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgery that lifts the breasts and nipples by tightening breast tissue, removing extra skin, and creating a more supportive structure. This procedure corrects breast ptosis, sagging, and other issues like downward-pointing nipples, stretched skin, asymmetrical breasts, and enlarged areolas.

What Does a Breast Augmentation procedure involve?

Sagging or drooping breasts happen when breast tissue loses its stretchiness. This can occur due to different reasons, including:

  • Weight fluctuation
  • Gravity
  • Genetics
  • Pregnancy & Breastfeeding
  • The natural aging process

What Does a Breast Lift Procedure Involve?

Breast lift surgery, typically lasting two to three hours, can be performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia, in a hospital or outpatient facility.

There are four techniques for lifting breasts, each with different incision patterns and levels of correction. These include the Crescent Lift for mild ptosis, Benelli Lift, Vertical Lift, and Full Lift for severe sagging. The technique chosen determines incision placement, based on goals, breast composition, and medical evaluation.

During the procedure, your plastic surgeon may reshape breast tissue using deep stitches. Excess skin is removed, and nipples are repositioned higher to meet aesthetic preferences. This process effectively lifts and reshapes the breasts to achieve desired results.

Risk

Breast Lift surgery has the same risks as any other major surgery-bleeding, infection, and adverse reaction to anesthesia. Other possible risks include:

/ Bruising
/ Changes in nipple or breast sensation
/ Difficulty breastfeeding

Recovery

After your breast lift, a drain may be used to remove extra fluids. Your breasts will be wrapped in gauze and a special bra. It’s normal to have swelling and bruising after surgery, which can be managed with pain meds. You’ll likely get antibiotics to prevent infection.

In the days or weeks after surgery, your breasts may feel tender. Your surgeon might recommend wearing a compression bra for extra support. Taking a week off work to rest is a good idea, with limited activity for two to four weeks to heal properly.

Though you’ll see immediate results, it takes time for swelling to go down completely. Scars from incisions will fade gradually.

Who is a Good Candidate for Breast Lift Surgery?

  • You are physically healthy
  • You have realistic expectations
  • You are self-conscious about your breasts
  • You wish to restore a more youthful & aesthetic appearance to your breasts
  • You don’t smoke
