Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Factors such as pregnancy, weight loss, gravity and aging produce changes in a woman’s breasts that cause them to lose their shape and begin to sag. A breast lift (mastopexy) is a surgical procedure to elevate and reshape sagging breasts. Excess skin is removed and supporting tissues are tightened to lift the breasts. If your breasts have lost volume over time, breast implants may be considered in conjunction with a breast lift to improve the overall breast enhancement.
Scars are around the areola, often with a vertical extension below the areola to tighten the skin (similar to a breast reduction).
Breast lift surgery is carried out under general anesthesia. Procedure time is approximately 2 hours, with a recovery time of 2 weeks. Upper body exercises may resume at 4 weeks.
