Breast Lift Definition

Breast Lift, also known as Mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure aiming to raise sagging breasts. This procedure helps women feel more confident by reshaping their breasts for a more youthful look. Sagging breasts can be caused by aging, weight loss, or breastfeeding. The difference between a breast lift and a breast reduction is that in a breast lift surgery, only excess skin is removed, however, in breast reduction, the actual breast tissue is removed. You should consult with a plastic surgeon to decide which one is best for you but sometimes both surgeries are done together. 

Good Candidates for Breast Lift

A breast lift might be right for you if:

  • You have sagging breasts
  • Your nipples point downward
  • You have uneven breasts or one is lower than the other

Keep in mind that if you want to get pregnant, this surgery might not be right for you because pregnancy eliminate the effect of a breast lift

Breast Lift Alternatives (Non-Surgical Breast Lift)

There is a way to lift sagging breast without having surgery. This alternative procedure uses PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and radiofrequency waves to lift the breasts. This method is also known as a ‘Vampire Breast Lift’, in which general anesthesia is not needed. Also, there is no downtime. This approach will increase breast and nipple sensitivity, reduce wrinkles, and it will lift sagging breasts without any surgery. For optimal results, a vampire breast lift is combined with Microneedling or laser resurfacing. 

Breast Lift Risks and Complications

All major surgeries have risks and a breast lift is not an exception. Some of this surgeries risks are:

  • Scarring. The scars will fade over time but will not disappear completely. However, the scars can become thick and wide due to poor healing.
  • Difficulty breastfeeding
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Changes in nipple or breast sensation
  • Bleeding
  • Anesthesia risks
  • Infection

Breast Lift Preparations

During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will:

  • Review your medical history. Your surgeon will ask about your current and past medical conditions. You should notify your surgeon if you have a family history of breast cancer.
  • Examine your breasts. Your doctor will examine your breasts to determine the best approach for your surgery. 
  • Talk to you about your expectations. You should talk about why you want to have this surgery and what you are hoping for as a result.
  • Take photographs for your medical record.

Also, before the surgery, you need to stop smoking and avoid taking certain medication like aspirin (because it can increase bleeding).

Breast Lift Options

Depending on the patient’s condition, there are three types of breast lift:

  • Periareolar incision: This approach is best for those who have large areolas and minimal breast sagging.
  • Vertical breast reduction incision: This approach is more suitable for patients with moderate sagging in their breasts.
  • Inverted-T incision: This approach, in which the maximum breast lift is obtained is the most common one.

Recovery from Breast Lift

During the first few days after the surgery, you can take painkillers that are recommended by your doctor to help with the pain. You might feel numb for up to six weeks. Your breasts will also swell and bruise, but these symptoms will subside after two weeks. Your surgeon might place small tubes at the incision sites to drain excess blood or fluid. The tubes are usually removed after a few days. If your surgeon hasn’t used dissolvable stiches, you need to visit your doctor to have your stiches removed, usually 1-2 weeks after the surgery. Keep in mind that the results of a breast lift are not permanent because as you age, your skin becomes less elastic and sag.
