Breast Lift Q & A
What is a Breast Lift?
A mastopexy is a thorough complex surgery designed to help in repositioning the breasts to help in achieving better symmetry and an improved aesthetic result. This can be done in addition to a breast reduction, breast augmentation, or as a breast lift alone.
It is important that your surgeon recognizes specific breast anatomy including asymmetries between breasts, or areas that may require more specific close attention. With time as well as pregnancy, the breast tissue can dramatically change both in size and also in location. Mastopexy surgery can afterwards be combined with additional procedures to improve on the quality of the skin to help in improving thickness and also tone. Our office has many different types of treatments including peels and lasers which can further assist in gaining an improved result post-surgery. Furthermore, there are times when patients not only seek a breast lift but also an augmentation which can be done with silicone or saline implants at the time of the mastopexy surgery or afterwards.

What to expect after a mastopexy/breast lift?
After surgery, the breasts will have antibiotic ointment placed over the incisions and be wrapped with ace wrap bandages. Patients will typically be seen within 1-3 days post operatively and bandages will be removed and inspected.
Sutures are typically absorbable and will be inspected post operatively to insure that they are healing correctly but typically do not need to be removed. The nipple position and also blood supply is verified and examined at this time as well as the general breast shape and symmetry. Patients should expect to be swollen and have bruising of the breasts which can last upwards of 1-2 weeks but is variable. The shape, size and general position of the breasts will change over the span of 4-6 weeks but patients will be seen in the office during this time period.
Patients are given post-operative instructions and pain medications/antibiotics after the surgery. Most people can expect to return to full normal activities within 2-3 weeks after surgery.
