A breast lift (mastopexy) is a breast surgery procedure to lift and reshape sagging breasts. The size, shape and extent of sagging of your breasts will determine the best mastopexy technique.
• The most common technique of breast lift surgery involves 3 incisions: one around the areolas, another vertically from the areolas to the crease of the breast, and a third along the breast crease.
• The excess skin is removed and the nipple and areola is shifted to a higher more pleasing position.
• This plastic surgery takes about 1 to 2 hours and is performed under general anesthesia with return home the same day.
• The breast lift can be performed in conjunction with breast augmentationsurgery.
The bandage is removed after 1-3 days. A surgical bra is worn full-time for 3-4 weeks following surgery. Stitches are removed after approximately 1 week. Some bruising and swelling are seen for 2-3 weeks. Patients should avoid lifting anything over their head for a few weeks. Most patients return to work within a week depending on their level of activity.
A mastopexy raises and firms the breasts, resulting in a more pleasing youthful breast contour. Patients who wish larger breasts may also enhance their breast size at the same time with breast implants.
