BREAST LIFT/ MASTOPEXY

Breast Lift Description

The shape of breasts changes naturally during the course of a woman’s life.  Breasts may begin to droop and sag due to a wide variety of life changes, such as childbirth, breast feeding, significant weight gain or loss, hormonal fluctuations, and the natural aging process.  Sagging breasts (also known as ptosis of the breasts) may cause both cosmetic and physical concerns for women.  In some cases, sagging breasts can cause pain in the neck, back and shoulders, as well as rashes and skin irritations from trapped moisture and excess rubbing against the chest or abdomen.  Mastopexy, or breast lift, is a surgical procedure that can lift the breasts into a more youthful position, while improving the balance and symmetry between the two breasts.  A breast lift may also help reshape the breasts and decrease the size of the areola (the darker skin around the nipple), if desired.  There are several procedures that can help correct breast ptosis, depending on the severity of the condition.  In some cases, excess skin can be removed and the nipple elevated in order to lift the breasts into a higher position.  For some patients, combining a breast lift with a breast augmentation fat transfer to the breasts may yield the best results.  Your doctor will discuss all your options with you and answer any questions you may have prior to surgery.

Breast Lift Procedure

The specifics of this procedure will vary, depending on the extent of breast ptosis and the specific techniques used to lift the breasts.  Excess skin may be removed, implants may be placed, or a combination of procedures may be used to achieve the best results.  Incisions may be made under the breasts or around the nipple, and most scars will be well concealed behind the bra or bathing suit.   Mastopexy is commonly performed in an outpatient surgical facility, with most patients able to return home the same day.  Strenuous activities will be limited during the healing process, typically between 3 and 4 weeks, and most women can resume work within 1 to 2 weeks after surgery, depending on your overall health and job requirements.  You can expect mild to moderate swelling for 2 to 3 weeks after surgery, with continuing mild swelling for up to 3 months. Your surgeon will discuss specific post-operative instructions with you, including wound care, pain management, and post-surgical bra support. It may take from 6 months to a year for the breasts to settle into their final shape.  A post-operative appointment is usually scheduled for one week after surgery.
