What Is A Breast Lift?

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to lift and reshape sagging breasts, restoring a youthful and perky appearance. The breast lift procedure involves:

  • Removing excess skin
  • Repositioning the underlying breast tissue
  • Elevating the nipples and areolas to a more youthful position

This transformative surgery aims to rejuvenate the breasts, providing a more lifted and aesthetically pleasing contour.

Candidacy For The Breast Lift Procedure

Ideal candidates for a breast lift procedure are individuals with breasts that have experienced noticeable sagging due to factors like:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Aging

Those who have lost breast firmness and are seeking to restore a more lifted and youthful appearance may be suitable candidates for the procedure. Other candidacy considerations include:

    • Candidates with nipples and areolas that point downward or sit below the breast crease may benefit from a breast lift, which can reposition them to a more natural and youthful location.
    • Smoking can negatively impact the healing process, so candidates should either be non-smokers or committed to quitting before and after the procedure.
    • While having a breast lift before having children is possible, women who plan to have more children may be advised to wait to undergo the procedure.

    Benefits Of The Breast Lift

    Repositioning the breasts with a lift improves the overall shape and projection, creating a more aesthetically pleasing contour. Patients often experience increased self-confidence and body positivity with firmer and lifted breasts.

    Some other benefits include the following:

    • For those with asymmetrical breasts, a breast lift can help achieve a more balanced and symmetrical look through customized adjustments for each breast.
    • After a breast lift, individuals can enjoy a broader range of clothing options with a newfound ability to wear various styles comfortably and confidently.
    • With lifted breasts, individuals may experience improved posture and reduced physical discomfort associated with breast sagging.

    The Breast Lift Procedure

    The procedure typically begins with administering anesthesia to ensure the patient's comfort throughout the surgery. Dr. Koonce will carefully plan incisions based on the degree of breast sagging and the desired outcome. Excess skin is removed through these incisions, and the underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped to restore a firmer contour. Nipples and areolas are repositioned to a higher, more aesthetically pleasing location. The areola size may sometimes be reduced to complement the new breast appearance. The incisions are then meticulously closed with sutures or surgical adhesive.

    Breast Lift Recovery

    After the surgery, patients can expect to experience some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed pain medication. It is recommended to wear a supportive bra or compression garment to minimize swelling and provide stability to the breasts during the healing period. Strenuous activities and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks to allow the incisions to heal properly.

    Dr. Koonce will provide specific post-operative care instructions, including cleaning and caring for the incision sites. Adhering to the recovery guidelines and patiently allowing the body to heal will contribute to the longevity of the results and the satisfaction of the transformative journey. Similarly, regular follow-up appointments with the surgeon are essential to monitor healing progress and address concerns.

    Over time, swelling will gradually subside, and patients will begin to appreciate the full benefits of the breast lift, enjoying a more elevated, youthful, and enhanced breast appearance.

    Breast Lift FAQ

    Will a breast lift procedure leave significant scarring?

    The extent of scarring from a breast lift procedure varies depending on the surgical technique and individual healing. Dr. Koonce aims to minimize scarring by strategically placing incisions. While some scarring is inevitable, it typically fades over time and can often be concealed under clothing or swimsuits.

    Can I combine a breast lift with breast augmentation?

    Yes, for individuals who desire both lifted and fuller breasts, a breast lift can be combined with a breast augmentation. This comprehensive procedure is known as augmentation mastopexy, addressing both volume loss and breast sagging in a single surgery.

    How long is the recovery period after a breast lift?

    Recovery time can vary based on individual healing rates and the complexity of the surgery. Generally, patients can expect some swelling and discomfort for the first few weeks, and it is advisable to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting during this period. Most individuals can resume non-strenuous daily activities after a week or two, with a full return to normal activities within six weeks.

    Will I lose sensitivity in my breasts after a breast lift?

    It is common to experience temporary changes in breast sensitivity after a breast lift procedure. Sensation usually improves gradually over time, but in some cases, there may be minor, permanent changes in nipple sensitivity.

    What type of anesthesia is used during a breast lift?

    Breast lift procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia to ensure the patient's comfort and safety during the surgery.

    How long do the results of a breast lift last?

    The results of a breast lift are long-lasting, but natural aging and lifestyle factors can still affect the breasts over time. Maintaining a stable weight and adopting a healthy lifestyle can help preserve the results for as long as possible.

    Are there any risks or complications associated with a breast lift?

    As with any surgical procedure, a breast lift carries risks and potential complications. These may include infection, scarring, changes in breast sensitivity, asymmetry, or issues related to anesthesia. Dr. Koonce will discuss these risks during your consultation and take measures to minimize them.
