What Is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is a cosmetic surgery to lift the breasts. Women’s breasts can change over time, losing their youthful firmness, shape, and elevation. These variations and diminishing skin elasticity occur as a result of genetics, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or the natural aging process. Mastopexy is designed to rejuvenate and uplift your breast profile.
The breast lift raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening adjacent tissues for support and recontouring. It can also correct enlarged areolas without significantly changing the size of your breasts. Benefits include full, firm breasts that perk up. If you want an increase in size as well, you can combine the procedure with a breast augmentation. If you want to go smaller, you can combine your surgery with a breast reduction.
Women seeking a breast lift typically want to:
- Bring the breasts up to their youthful position
- Restore a more rounded shape to their breasts
- Reposition nipples that point downward
- Feel more confident about their breasts
If you want additional volume, especially in the upper breasts, Dr. Cooper may recommend combining the lift with breast augmentation. Combining breast implants with a breast lift is often done as part of a mommy makeover.
Breast Lift Candidature
Some women are not completely satisfied with their breasts’ appearance and seek cosmetic help. When breasts tend to sag and nipples point south, a breast lift can help. Here are some of the concerns a breast lift can address:
- Rejuvenate stretched or sagging breasts
- Restore breast proportions and elevation
- Enhance breast appearance due to genetic issues
Although improvement is possible, a patient must have realistic expectations of what the surgery can and cannot do.
Breast Lift Techniques
A breast lift can be customized to fit your specific needs. Dr. Cooper offers various incision techniques to improve the unique concerns of each of his patients. During your consultation, and with your input, Dr. Cooper will suggest a suitable option for your best results. These may be one of the following:
This technique is for breasts with severe sagging. The incision path resembles that of an anchor or inverted T. It removes excess skin and tissue by employing three incisions. These include around the areola (pigmented skin around the nipple), from the areola to the breast crease, and along the breast crease (inframammary fold).
Dr. Cooper performs this incision around the top of the areola to correct minimal sagging. This technique is best suited when combined with breast augmentation.
Also known as the Donut Lift, this technique corrects mild sagging with an incision around the areola. Scarring is camouflaged within the dark pigment. This procedure is also done concurrently with a breast augmentation.
This technique involves two incisions, one around the areola and the other from the areola to the breast crease. This method is used when extensive shaping is necessary.
Breast Lift Recovery
During your recovery, bandages will be applied to the incision sites after surgery. You will go home in a support bra or compression garment to protect the incisions and minimize swelling. Dr. Cooper will send you home with specific after-surgery instructions to follow once you get home. These may include:
- How to care for your breasts after surgery
- Medications to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection
- What to look for at the surgery site
- When to return for your follow up visit
- When you can resume normal activities
Most patients report facing mild to moderate discomfort following their breast lift operation. Pain is typically the most intense in the first couple of days after surgery. Dr. Cooper will prescribe oral medications to relieve any discomfort. He may ask you to refrain from any over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pills like naproxen and ibuprofen, which can promote bleeding.
