There are many reasons why breasts begin to sag and droop: aging, genetics, gravity, pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight loss. No matter the reason, sagging breasts can make you feel old and less attractive. A Breast Lift, or mastopexy, can restore your breasts to a more youthful shape, restoring your self-confidence and youthful vibrance. Your breasts will be firmer and sit higher upon your chest and your clothes will fit better too.
If you wish to have larger breasts, you may want to consider an augmentation procedure performed at the same time.
Am I a candidate for a Breast Lift?
You might be a candidate for a breast lift if you maintain a stable weight, do not smoke, are generally healthy and you:
- Have breasts sag, have lost shape or volume
- Have breasts are flat, elongated, or pendulous (hanging)
- Breasts and/or areola are stretched or point downward
The Breast Lift procedure lasts one to two hours and is typically performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are made in locations that will minimize scar visibility. After the incisions are closed sterile dressings are applied.
You will feel tired and sore for the first week or so, but you should be able to return to work in about a week. Your stitches will be removed 5 to 10 days after surgery and any post-operative pain, swelling and sensitivity should diminish over the first few weeks.
