What is Breast Lift?

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a transformative procedure designed to elevate, reshape, and rejuvenate breasts that have lost their youthful appearance due to factors such as aging, breastfeeding, or weight loss. This technique involves the removal of excess, stretched skin from the breasts while tightening the surrounding tissues. You have the option to pair a breast lift with a breast augmentation procedure to enhance fullness. Alternatively, if the size or weight of your breasts causes discomfort, a breast reduction surgery can be combined with a breast lift.

Who is a good candidate?

You are a good candidate for breast lift surgery if:

  • • Your breast development has reached its conclusion.
  • • You are not planning future pregnancies or breastfeeding.
  • • Sagging breasts due to genetics, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging affect you.
  • • You are in good health without significant medical conditions that could impair healing.
  • • You are a non-smoker or willing to abstain from smoking three weeks prior to and after surgery.
  • • You possess a positive outlook and realistic expectations about the procedure’s outcomes.

The Procedure

Breast lift procedures employ various incision patterns, chosen based on your individual correction needs and potential combination surgeries. The common incision approaches are as follows:

  • • Traditional Method: Involves three incisions around the areola, vertically from the breast crease, and horizontally along the crease. Suitable for significant sagging and combined with breast reduction.
  • • Vertical Incision: Utilized for moderate sagging, this involves incisions around the areola and vertically to the breast crease.
  • • Areola Incision: Appropriate for mild sagging coupled with breast augmentation, this incision is placed solely around the areola.

The procedure entails shifting the nipple and areola to a higher position, while lifting the underlying tissue for a more youthful contour. Excess skin is removed, and if the areola is enlarged, it’s resized. Closure involves deep sutures to support the new breast shape.

Surgery typically takes 2 to 3 hours, often under general anesthesia. However, intravenous sedation and local anesthesia may be employed at your surgeon’s discretion.


Post-surgery, drainage tubes may be placed on incisions, and breasts will be wrapped with gauze bandages and a compression garment bra for support. Pain is manageable with prescribed painkillers. Showering can usually resume within 3-7 days, while walking is encouraged to prevent blood clot formation. Strenuous activities should be avoided for 4-6 weeks.

Over time, incision lines fade, though the final appearance of scars varies based on factors like age and genetics.

Possible complications

Possible complications are infrequent and might include fluid retention, infection, anesthesia reactions, pigmentation changes, or temporary skin numbness. Breast lift-specific complications encompass changes in nipple or breast sensation, contour irregularities, breast asymmetry, and unfavorable keloid scarring.

As with any surgical procedure, careful consultation with your surgeon, understanding your options, and realistic expectations are key to a successful breast lift journey.

    I’m thinking about getting a breast lift, but I’m curious about the scars. How noticeable are they, and do they fade over time? Also, how long will it be before I can get back to my regular workout routine?

      Hi there!

      Great questions! Our surgeons make every effort to place incisions where scars will be less noticeable, and they do fade significantly over time with proper care. As for returning to your regular workout routine, you’ll need to take it easy for about 4-6 weeks. Light activities can usually resume after a couple of weeks, but it’s important to follow your surgeon’s specific advice.

      Feel free to ask more if you have any other questions!
