Mastopexy or Breast Lift Surgery

By Dr. Patrick Hsu

liftMedically known as mastopexy, breast lift surgery is similar to breast augmentation in that it allows for the reshaping and recontouring of a woman’s breasts in order to improve body lines and enhance body image. Women who have had children often experience “sagging” or “loose” breasts due to repeated stretching of the skin and overall loss in volume after breastfeeding. Losing large amounts of weight can also affect the breasts, causing a “droopy” appearance because of the loss of fullness. Additionally, the nipple is usually low and not centered on the breast. A breast lift procedure works by removing excess skin, which firms and reshapes the breast to be more “perky” and natural looking.

 

Before and After for Mastopexy

Breast lifts can be performed with or without an implant depending on your breast shape and size. Larger breasted patients may just need a breast lift to reposition their nipple and breast tissue since they have enough volume. However, a small implant is commonly used with most mastopexy patients to help provide a better shape and more projection. A breast implant with your breast lift can not only bring the nipples back up, but provide additional fullness even when relatively small implants are used.

Is a Mastopexy- Augmentation Part of a Mommy Makeover?

Breast lift and breast augmentation is indeed a favorite of Moms as part of their Mommy Makeover! Many mothers long for the fullness and increased perkiness of their breasts from before they had children or perhaps while they were breast feeding their babies. A combined mastopexy and augmentation achieves Moms’ aesthetic goals in a single operation!

Please see our Mommy Makeover section to learn about changes that commonly occur in the breasts, the tummy and other areas of the body after pregnancy, and about combined mastopexy and breast augmentation as a component of a Mommy Makeover.

The Breast Lift Procedure

Lifting the breasts for a firmer appearance involves the removal of excess skin. Dr. Hsu will elevate the entire breast, rearranging the overall curvature and relocating the nipple and areolas. Contrary to what many believe, the nipple is never detached or removed and always remains apart of the breast. Once the appropriate shape is achieved, excess skin is removed from the underside of the breast and the remaining skin is reshaped to the new contour. Increased volume is achieved with implants being inserted during the breast lift procedure. In its entirety, the breast lift surgery should be between 2-4 hours.

After Breast Lift Surgery

Limited upper body activity is recommended for the first two weeks to avoid aggravating the healing tissues. Scars will be prominent for a while but will fade considerably over time. You can expect your breast lift to last at least 5-10 years, depending on lifestyle and body changes that occur naturally as you age. Those patients with healthy lifestyle and good skin quality can get longer lasting results. Ask Dr. Hsu about what lifestyles changes you can make to prolong your cosmetic results.
