A breast lift is a surgical correction for breasts that have begun to sag or droop due to heredity, aging, weight changes, or breastfeeding. The procedure involves a precision surgery to restore the breasts to a higher position on the chest, reshaping breast tissue, and relocating the nipple structure for a youthful, perky look.
Sagging breasts can be restored to look firm, perky, and youthful.
Several things may cause the breasts to droop or sag, including pregnancy, weight change, and aging. Our doctors can correct this through the breast lift or mastopexy. With this procedure, our doctors reshape the breast mound, raises the nipple, and tightens the skin to give a more youthful, perky appearance.
Breast lift with augmentation – is it right for you?
In many cases, we use a breast implant, or breast augmentation, along with the breast lift in a combined procedure known as “augmentation mastopexy.” Using this technique, our doctors can give you the size and shape that you desire and make dramatic improvement in the appearance of your breasts.
Should I get a breast lift?
Candidates for the breast lift include women who have:
- Low or elongated breasts
- Nipples that point downward
- Enlarged areolas
- Stretched skin
- One breast lower than the other
What is a breast lift like to experience?
The mastopexy procedure is done in an outpatient setting under general anesthesia. Patients must refrain from smoking for at least one month before and after surgery.
Because our doctors use a special surgical technique, swelling and discomfort is minimal, the recovery is rapid, and the scars are well concealed.

What is the recovery from a breast lift like?
You will need to plan ahead and arrange a trusted friend or family member to stay with you for a day or two after surgery. You will need at least one week off work or other activities to rest and heal. Take gentle walks and ensure you place no stress on the incisions so they heal as they should.
You should not find the recovery painful, as you will have prescription pain medication to keep you comfortable in the early stages. Our doctors' surgical techniques allow for faster healing, and less discomfort.
