A breast lift, also called a “mastopexy” is a surgery that corrects sagging breasts. This is done by removing the extra skin to tighten the breast and move the nipple up higher to its proper position.
As we progress through the natural aging process, the structure of our breasts undergoes transformations. These changes can lead to a reduction in elasticity, resulting in the stretching, sagging, or drooping of the breasts. Several factors contribute to these alterations, including:
Mastopexy offers a solution to restore the firmness and youthful appearance of your breasts. Additionally, a breast lift procedure can address perceived imperfections, such as:
A breast lift is done by making incisions on your breasts to remove the excess skin, which is typically the skin from the bottom part of your breast. If you have stretch marks in this area, they will be removed too! The nipple is moved upwards, and the remaining skin is pulled tighter around the breast. The size of your incisions and resulting breast lift scars depend on how much extra breast tissue you have.
This incision removes skin around your areola only. It is well disguised since it is at the natural junction of areola and breast skinf
This incision removes skin from around your areola and bottom of your breast leaving a scar that goes around your areola and a vertical line down the bottom part of your breast
This incision removes the most skin. It is taken from around the areola, the bottom, and the sides of the breast. It leaves incisions that go around your areola, one vertical below the areola, and one horizontal in the fold under your breast. This is the most commonly performed lift procedure.
During breast lift recovery you can expect to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Your skin may also feel tight. These post-procedure effects typically improve gradually over the course of approximately two weeks.
If your surgery involved the use of drainage tubes near the incision sites, your medical team will typically remove them a few days after the procedure. The complete healing of the incisions may take several months. Dr. Mason recommends sleeping on your back for a few weeks following the surgery, but it’s essential to consult with your surgeon regarding this specific guideline.
The price for a breast lift varies. The cost can include expenses like anesthesia, operating room facilities, and other associated costs. To ascertain your ultimate fee, it is advisable to have a discussion with your plastic surgeon’s office.
A surgeon’s charge for breast lift surgery is contingent on various factors, including their expertise, the specific type of breast lift, and the geographic location of their practice.
There are a few preparations that are important before breast lift surgery. If you are over 40, you should have your mammogram before surgery. Your breasts can fluctuate with weight change, so it is recommended that you be at a stable weight prior to your operation. Make sure you are eating a balanced diet, get enough protein, and plenty of rest. This helps with healing. Do not smoke and avoid being around people who are smoking.
During the initial consultation, you will be asked about your medical history to make sure you are in good health and a candidate for breast lift surgery. You will then discuss breast lifts specifically, and your cosmetic goals. Dr. Mason will examine you so you can decide together on the right surgery for your body. Remember, there is no one-size-fits-all, Dr. Mason will customize a plan just for you.
Typically, a woman can anticipate her breast lift results to last 10 to 15 years. Yet, variations in individual results are expected due to diverse factors influencing longevity.
Expect discomfort and tenderness near incisions, with red or pink coloration for a few months. Numbness in nipples, areolae, and breast skin may persist for approximately six weeks. Follow your healthcare provider’s advice on pain medication during the initial post-breast lift days.
Factors like your location and the expertise of your surgeon can impact the cost of your breast lift procedure.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports a nationwide average cost of breast lift procedures to be about $4,816.
There is no age limit for breast lift surgery. Women in their 50s, 60s, and 70s achieve excellent results, provided they are in good overall health.
Do celebrate your decision. Do enjoy your new breasts. Do allow your confidence to skyrocket. Do take time to properly heal and take care of yourself. Don’t push yourself too hard. Don’t skip breast lift scar care.
A breast lift will not prevent or cause problems with you getting pregnant. However, if you do get pregnant or gain significant weight after undergoing a breast lift surgery you risk undoing the results due to stretching.
As a result, you might need another surgery to correct these changes. This is why Dr. Mason recommends that you wait until you are done having children to have a breast lift procedure.
Breast shape will be different after surgery, meaning you may or may not need a different bra size. We recommend waiting at least six weeks for the swelling to go down before being fitted for a bra.
Regardless, breasts always LOOK smaller when they are not as long, even if the volume is the same. If your wish is to have larger and fuller looking breasts, we may recommend a breast augmentation with breast implants at the same time as your lift.
Yes, you can often have a breast lift with another procedure. Talk to Dr. Mason to help make the surgical plan that is best for you.
