Make your sad breasts happy again

About Breast Lift (Mastopexy) Surgery

Your breasts, more than almost any other tissue in the body, will undergo many changes throughout your life. These changes may be due to pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or normal aging, but the end result is often a deflated appearing breast that will not bounce back on it’s own even with exercise or external treatments. A mastopexy, aka breast lift, is the solution to bring your breasts back up to a youthful perky position.

Candidates

Women, over the age of 18, who desire an improvement in breast position, shape, and/or symmetry.

Areas Treated

The breasts, typically bilaterally (both breasts). In rare cases of extreme asymmetry, a breast lift may only be needed on one side to match the other breast.

Before Surgery

It is important to be in good health prior to surgery. A current mammogram may be required. If you are being treated for any chronic health condition, such as high blood pressure, we will require surgical clearance from your primary care physician prior to surgery. For surgeries requiring general anesthesia, a current EKG and basic blood work are also required. All of these precautions will contribute to a swift recovery.

Recovery

For the first two weeks following your breast lift you will need to limit your range of motion with your arms (T-Rex arms). It will be very helpful to plan for this prior to surgery by moving frequently used or necessary items to counter height for easy access. You will also have a weight lifting restriction so you may need to enlist help with some household chores such as vacuuming, laundry, and cleaning. Underwire bras are not recommended until 4 weeks after surgery.
