Several factors contribute to the change in breasts such as pregnancy, nursing, age, weight loss, heredity, and gravity.

Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure used to lift and reshape the breasts. If you are bothered by changes or the appearance of your breasts, you may be a good candidate for breast lift surgery.

A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support a new breast contour. Cost for breast lift surgery ranges from $6,000 to $9,000.

Breast lift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. During a breast lift surgery, an incision is made around the areola (the colored skin around the nipple) and is extended downward along the natural curve of the breast. The incision resembles the shape of an anchor.

During the procedure, excess skin is removed, the areola is placed in a higher position, and the skin around the areola is brought down to reshape the breast and provide a more youthful appearance. A breast lift can also correct an areola that has become enlarged over time.

Breast augmentation, or enlargement, is often performed with a breast lift procedure to help restore volume or cleavage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are You a Good Candidate for Breast Lift Surgery?

Generally, a breast lift doesn’t affect breast function; however, women who are planning future pregnancies should discuss this with their plastic surgeon as it may interfere with breastfeeding.

The best candidates for a breast lift surgery are women who are at a stable weight, non-smokers, and who are discouraged by breasts that sag or have lost shape and volume.

What can I Expect After a Breast Lift Surgery?

Dressings and bandages will be applied to the breasts and incisions following a breast lift procedure. Patents are also instructed to wear an elastic support bra to ensure the breasts are properly supported during recovery.
