Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Restore the youthful shape, tone and balance of your breasts.

After pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or the natural aging process, it is common for breasts to lose volume and become saggy. Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure designed to lift the breasts and improve fullness. Alternatively, learn more about breast implants (breast augmentation). Or for women with overly large breasts, learn more about a breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty).

Breast Lift Results

You can expect to feel more comfortable with the shape and position of your breasts, and you’ll see the beautiful, natural results immediately after the surgery. Many women say their breast lift procedure has boosted their confidence and made it easier (and more fun) to shop for clothes. It’s important to remember, however, that no surgery can permanently delay the effects of gravity. Variables that may also affect the procedure – and your results – include your age, the size and shape of your breasts, and the condition of your skin.

Preparing for a Breast Lift

Your plastic surgeon will provide detailed instructions to ensure that you are properly prepared for the surgery and the recovery period. You will also receive guidelines on what to eat and drink and whether you need to avoid certain medications or supplements before and after your procedure.

What to expect during a breast lift?

First, you will have a consultation with one of our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons to determine whether you are a good candidate for a breast lift and to discuss your expectations and options.

There are a number of different techniques for breast lift surgery.  All of them involve tightening the skin of the breast and lifting the nipple and areola.  Your surgeon will discuss where the scars would need to be placed to achieve this.

Breast Lift Recovery

The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and you can go home the same day. You’ll experience some post-surgical discomfort, swelling, and bruising for about two weeks, which can be minimized with medication, and you should be able to return to work after a few days. You will also be able to wear a normal bra after the procedure. You should, however, avoid sleeping on your stomach and lifting heavy objects for at least two weeks.

Eligibility for Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

During a one-on-one consultation, your plastic surgeon will determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for a breast lift. Typically, good candidates are non-smokers who have:

  • Good health and a stable body weight
  • Realistic expectations for the procedure
  • Frustrations about breast sagging, lost volume or fullness
  • Breasts with a pendulous, elongated shape
  • Stretched skin and enlarged areolas
  • Nipples and areolas that point downward
  • One breast that is lower than the other
