Breast Lift - Mastopexy To Raise & Shape The Breasts

Breast Lift

Breast Lift

A breast lift, also referred to as mastopexy, can raise drooping breasts to a youthful position while also enhancing breast shape. The effects of aging can result in a loss of definition that can lead to a sagging or uneven appearance of the breasts. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, or hormonal changes can further accentuate this process. In addition to being a cosmetic concern, sagging breasts may also cause pain or discomfort in the back or shoulders. Breast lift surgery can restore your breasts to a higher position using the latest advancements in breast enhancement technology. Undergoing mastopexy surgery can correct breast drooping, even-out any breast asymmetries, and improve the appearance of your nipples or areolas.

Your Breast Lift Procedure

Breast lift surgery is either performed at an outpatient surgical facility or a local hospital; this is dependent on the specifics of your treatment. Incisions are typically placed around the areolas, with some incisions extending underneath the breasts, depending on the type of breast lift surgery performed. Your breast lift surgeon will raise the breasts by reshaping breast tissue. Excess skin can also be removed to achieve a firmer look. Your nipples may be repositioned during your mastopexy and the surrounding areolas can be reduced, if necessary.

Patients can combine breast lift surgery with additional breast enhancement options, including breast augmentation and breast reduction. Your breast lift can also compliment body sculpting procedures, including mommy makeover surgery, liposuction, and tummy tuck surgery.

Breast Lift Options

Crescent Technique (Crescent Lift) Incisions are placed along the upper halves of the areolas Less invasive technique, can address minor sagging of the breasts
Periareolar Technique (Donut Lift) Incisions are made around the areolas Can improve mild drooping of the breasts
Vertical Technique (Lollipop Lift) Incisions are placed around the areolas and down to the breast folds Can address more pronounced drooping of the breasts
Inverted-T Technique (Anchor Lift) Incisions are made around the areolas, down to the breast folds, and along the breast creases Can address significant sagging of the breasts

What To Expect After Undergoing Your Breast Lift Surgery

Mild to moderate swelling can be expected for 2-3 weeks post-surgery, depending on the type of breast lift performed. Patients usually return to work in 1-2 weeks. Strenuous exercise may require 3-4 weeks of healing time before resuming. Your breast lift surgeon can discuss exact timeframes during your consultation.

Breast lift surgery can achieve shapelier, youthful, and perkier-looking breasts. Mastopexy results are long-lasting and can begin to be seen in the months following your procedure.
