Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that lifts and reshapes sagging breasts to create a more youthful and lifted appearance. This procedure can also reposition the nipples and reduce the size of the areolas if needed.

For Whom Breast Lift is Suitable?

Breast lift surgery is suitable for women who have sagging breasts due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging. Women who are unhappy with the shape or position of their breasts and want to improve their appearance may also be good candidates.


When Breast Lift is Not Suitable?

Breast lift surgery may not be suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is also not recommended for women who are planning to have more children, as pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause breasts to sag again.

What Techniques are Used in Breast Lift?

There are several techniques that can be used in breast lift surgery, depending on the extent of sagging and the patient's desired results. These techniques may involve different incisions and reshaping of breast tissue.

Preparation for Breast Lift Surgery

Patients will need to undergo a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine if they are suitable candidates for breast lift surgery. Prior to the surgery, patients may need to adjust their medication use, stop smoking, and arrange for a ride home after the procedure.

Risks of Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery is generally safe, but like any surgery, it carries some risks, including bleeding, infection, scarring, and changes in nipple or breast sensation. Patients should discuss these risks with their plastic surgeon prior to the surgery.


Procedure for Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and can take a few hours to complete. The surgeon will make incisions, remove excess skin and tissue, reshape the breast tissue, and reposition the nipples and areolas. The incisions will be closed with sutures and bandages will be applied.

Healing Process Post-Op

Recovery time after breast lift surgery varies, but patients can usually return to work within one to two weeks. Patients will need to avoid strenuous activities and wear a supportive bra for several weeks to ensure proper healing. Some swelling, bruising, and discomfort is normal after the surgery, but these symptoms can be managed with pain medication and rest. Patients will need to follow their surgeon's post-op instructions carefully to ensure a smooth and successful recovery.
