Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy)

Aging, weight loss, and childbearing can result in sagging, deflated breasts that make you look older.

It can help restore your breasts to a perkier, shapelier appearance. At Shadyside Surgi-Center, patients receive safe and effective care.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is Breast Lift surgery performed?

During breast surgery, loose skin around the breasts is removed. With less skin the preserved breast tissue firms up. This also moves the breasts back up the body, which gives you a perkier appearance and a better shape. They may then use synthetic mesh, or your own skin to support the breast on the bottom and he may use fat suctioned from other parts of the body to add fullness on top.

Fat transfer is another non-implant augmentation method that is becoming more popular nowadays. This procedure involves taking fat from other areas of the body and injecting it into the breasts.

How long does Breast Lift procedure take?

The procedure takes about two to three hours

Can Breast Lift surgery be done in conjunction with other procedures?

Breast lift surgery can be done either alone or combined with a breast reduction or augmentation. The size and shape of the breast implants used will depend on your aesthetic goals. Having breast implants in conjunction with a lift has proven to be a better option to enhance fullness, shape, and size as well as elevate the breasts to a higher, more youthful location. According to a University of California at Los Angeles study, a breast lift is also safe and beneficial when performed immediately following breast implant removal.

How long is the recovery time?

You can return to your regular activities within a few days of this procedure. After three weeks you can resume exercise. You will also have to wear a special support bra for a month or more.
