Mastopexy, or breast lift surgery, is an operation designed to lift and contour breasts that are of abnormal shape. Most mastopexy operations are performed to correct drooping or “ptosis” of the breasts.

Who is a candidate for the Breast Lift procedure?
Women who have sagging breasts due to past pregnancies, weight loss, genetics or aging and desire significant improvement in the shape and contour of the breasts.
Are implants sometimes used with a Breast Lift procedure?
Yes, we use both saline and silicone implants when necessary to provide more breast volume and fullness in the upper aspect of the breast. A breast lift surgery alone may not achieve the desired look.
How is a breast lift performed?
The design of the incisions can vary, but usually include incisions around the nipple-areolar complex and in the crease under the breast. Other incision techniques may include a vertical lift “lollipop” or a full lift “anchor type.” The nipple-areolar complex is repositioned higher, the excess skin is removed, and the breast is reshaped in a pleasing contour and in a more normal position. The goal is using good quality, well hidden scars to create significant improvement in the shape of your breasts.
How long is the recovery process?
The patient will go home in a bra with only light dressings over the incision lines and will wear it for about 4 weeks. Sutures will dissolve within a few weeks after surgery. Initial discomfort is controlled with oral medication. A patient can start light activity in 7-10 days.
Where are Breast Lift operations performed?
Are there risks associated with the Breast Lift Surgery?
All surgery involves risk and potential complications. A thorough discussion of the risks and potential benefits of any procedure is an essential part of the preoperative consultative process.
