A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, raises and reshapes breasts that have begun to droop or sag. I perform this procedure to elevate the breasts and give them a more youthful appearance. A breast lift may also be completed in conjunction with breast augmentation or breast reduction.

The breast lift technique I will use will depend on your existing anatomy and the extent of surgical correction needed. In most cases, I will use a pattern that will result in lollipop-like incision or an anchor-like incision on the breast. This incision goes around the areola and down to the breast crease (lollipop shape) and may extend within the breast crease (anchor shape) as well. Through the incision, I am able to remove excess skin and move the nipple/areola to a higher position.
Women with relatively small breasts and minimal sagging may be candidates for modified procedures such as the crescent or donut (Benelli) mastopexy techniques that require less extensive incisions. I would caution that these techniques are limited to minor repositioning of the nipple rather than elevating the entire breast. If you are thinking about a breast lift, chances are high that a lollipop or an anchor incision will be necessary.
Post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and recovery time. I will wrap the breasts in a bandage right after surgery to protect the incisions and minimize movement of the breasts. Once the bandages are removed, you will need to wear a specialized surgical bra for several weeks. Patients should expect minor discomfort associated with surgery, which can be treated with over-the-counter or prescription medication. During this time, I will make sure to start a scar-minimizing program to make sure you form the best scar possible.
