Procedure Information: Breast Lift

Mastopexy, or breast lift, is an outpatient surgical procedure done to lift and firm the breast using incisions around the areola, vertically down the lower portion of the breast and, often, horizontally along the fold.

Should you have a breast lift? Ultimately, that’s a decision that only you can make. We hope, after speaking with us, you will have all of the information you need to make that decision. Commonly, it is the person who looks at themselves with clothes on, as well as with clothes off, and sees saggy boobs that used to be firm, perky breasts that will generally decide to have breast lift surgery. From years of experience our surgeons know that breast lifts are desired by women who have lost their breast firmness for reasons such as pregnancy, breast feeding, weight changes, medications, or prolonged absence of bra support.

Recovery from breast lift surgery is very patient-specific. We expect that normal activities will be resumed as quickly as each individual can tolerate it. Swelling may last up to 6 weeks after mastopexy surgery and you should be prepared for your nipple and skin sensation to be altered temporarily. Rest assured, all of these issues and more will be discussed thoroughly during your initial consultation with the physician.
