A breast lift surgery is a procedure to enhance the shape and contour of the breasts. Also known as mastopexy, the surgery removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissues to improve the shape of the breasts and make them symmetrical.
You should keep in mind that a breast lift won’t affect the size of the breasts. It will give an uplifting effect making the breasts firm and raising them. Thus, breast lift surgery rejuvenates the breast profile giving a more defined and youthful appearance

If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes,” you should consider getting a breast lift. Inevitably, the breasts change shape and size with age, pregnancy, hormonal changes, weight fluctuations, and many more reasons. To bring back the lost perkiness and firmness of the breasts, mastopexy or breast lift surgery is the perfect solution. You can also combine a breast lift with breast reduction or augmentation to get the desired results.
If breast sagging is not addressed on time, it can cause physical discomfort and also affect the self-esteem and confidence of the woman. As there are numerous factors that influence the changes in the breasts, accounting for all of them is quite difficult.
Furthermore, large and sagging breasts can cause pain. It happens due to stretching of Cooper’s ligaments that lead to breast pain, also known as Mastalgia. It is a condition that is described as tenderness, throbbing, and sharp pain in the breast tissues. The pain may arise occasionally or may be present constantly.
Though surgery is not always needed to treat mastalgia, it can help to reconstruct the shape of your breasts. You should always consult a plastic surgeon to discuss what is the best way to restore the shape of your breasts.
The plastic surgeon will conduct a thorough diagnosis before initiating breast lift treatment. The diagnosis may include:
During the consultation, a plastic surgeon recommends a few diagnostic tests before breast lift surgery to ensure that the surgery is safe-
The results of these tests will give the doctor an insight into which technique would be most appropriate for the patient. The options are discussed with the patient, and the decision is made based on their preference.
Breast lift surgery is sometimes performed as a standalone procedure, and other times, it is combined with breast augmentation or reduction to make the desired changes in the breast’s shape and size.
Usually, the surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and takes around 3-4 hours. The steps involved in the procedure are explained below-
Most women ask the surgeon to ensure that the breast lift treatment doesn’t leave a scar on the body. However, it may not be possible in all cases. The surgeon makes the decision based on the patient’s anatomy.
Here are a few tips that may help you prepare for breast lift surgery:
There are different techniques through which breast lift surgery can be performed-
1: Crescent Breast Lift- This is one of the minimally invasive techniques commonly suggested to correct minor sagging of the breasts.
2: Periareolar Breast Lift- This type of breast lift technique is also known as a donut lift. The periareolar technique is usually advised for women who have mild sagging breasts. The plastic surgeon makes a single incision in order to improve the droop in the breast.
3: Vertical Breast Lift- This technique is also referred to as the lollipop lift. It is mostly used to correct moderate sagging breasts. During this technique, the plastic surgeon will perform the breast lift through two incisions, one circular cut on the exterior boundary of the areola and a vertical incision from the bottom of the areola to the inframammary fold.
4: Inverted T Breast Lift- This technique is also called anchor lift. The plastic surgeon will perform this technique by making three incisions to fix the extensive sagginess of the breasts.
Breast lift surgery is performed with modern methods. But like any other surgery, there are potential risks and complications that can occur, such as-
The common side-effects of a breast lift surgery are-
Generally, patients who get a breast lift are able to enjoy the results for 10-15 years. In some patients, the results may last even longer, while in others, the breast may start to sag again, and they might need revision surgery.
Yes, breast lift surgery is completely safe. Although there are some chances of complications associated with the procedure, most of them can be handled by a professional doctor.
The pain during a breast lift will be non-existent as your body will be numb due to the effects of anesthesia. As the anesthesia wears off, you may experience mild to moderate pain which will be controlled by pain medications. The medications will continue during the healing period.
A breast lift cannot prevent the changes that will occur due to aging. Hence, there is a possibility that the breasts will ultimately start to drop and become saggy again.
After surgery, you can expect numbness and soreness in the breasts. The corrected breasts are covered in a bandage for recovery. You may notice swelling, redness, soreness, and discomfort for the first few weeks of breast lift surgery. However, such effects can be managed by medications, including painkillers, by the plastic surgeon.
In some cases, the plastic surgeon will also place small tubes to make the cavity for draining the excess bodily fluids and blood. You are advised to avoid any strenuous activities, heavy object lifting, and bending to keep the pressure off from the reconstructed breasts.
Keep your postures upright while sitting, and wear recommended compression bra to support new and uplifted breasts.
Grade 1 (Mild Ptosis)
Minor sagging of the breasts in which the nipple lies at the level of the inframammary fold, and the parenchyma is still below the nipples.
Grade 2 (Moderate Ptosis)
The nipple starts to fall below the inframammary fold but stays above the lowest point of the parenchyma.
Grade 3 (Advanced Ptosis)
At this grade, the degree of sagging is severe. The nipple and areola fall below the breast crease and point downwards.
This condition gives the effect of ptosis in the lower part of the breasts instead of the nipples and areola. The majority of breast parenchyma descends below the inframammary fold level.
This type of sagging occurs in the lower portion of the breast as it loses fullness. It is more of a developmental deformity.

Other methods, such as Botox injections, dermal fillers, etc., are not approved by the FDA as a method for a breast lift.
