Breast Lift Surgery

A breast lift, also called mastopexy, offers women the opportunity to raise and firm their breasts. The procedure raises the breasts by removing excess skin, tightening the tissue, and moving the nipples up.

The procedure, which is usually done on an outpatient basis, will take anywhere from 1-3 hours. It’s likely that you will receive general anesthesia to put you to sleep while the procedure is done. Pain is typically minimal and well tolerated.

There may be minor bruising and swelling is normal. Your doctor will prescribe pain medication and give you specific directions for taking care when you go home.

Who is suitable for Breast Lift Surgery?

Women in good health who are experiencing moderate to severe sagging of the breasts (ptosis) are typically considered good candidates for breast lift surgery.

In addition to the effects pregnancy and breastfeeding can have on a woman’s breasts, the natural aging process and gravity also contribute to a less firm or youthful breast shape.

Pregnancy and nursing may have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of your breasts. Nevertheless, many women decide to undergo breast lift surgery before having children and feel that they can address any subsequent changes later. Since the milk ducts and nipples are left intact, breast lift surgery usually will not affect your ability to breastfeed.
