Breast Lift Mobile

Breast Lift Mobile

Sagging or ptotic breasts occur with age, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations but can be improved with a breast lift, or mastopexy.

In the case of mild ptosis or deflation hypomastia, a breast implant alone may correct the deformity. Moderate ptosis can be corrected by excision of skin in a doughnut fashion around the areola. More severe sag will require a vertical scar or anchor shaped scar below the nipple to tighten the loose breast around the elevated nipple.

Preoperative evaluation with physical exam and possibly imaging (mammogram or ultrasound) will be performed prior to surgery to rule out cancer should be completed prior to mastopexy.

The Breast Lift Process

The operation will last 1.5 to 3 hours under general anesthesia or deep sedation typically as an outpatient. Incisions are created, skin is removed as needed, and the remaining skin is tightened. The areolae may be repositioned and/or resized to fit the breasts’ new dimensions. Finally, the incisions are closed using sutures.

Mastopexy Recovery

For a few days, the breasts will be tender, bruised, and swollen, but pain will resolve over several days and can be easily treated with prescribed medication. A support or sports bra is helpful.

Swelling will resolve over weeks to months, and light activity can be resumed immediately and strenuous activity at 4 to 6 weeks. The risks of mastopexy include recurrent sag, enlarged areola, poor scarring, infection, bleeding, asymmetry, altered nipple sensation, and wound healing problems.
