What are the benefits of a Breast Lift?

Breast tissue can begin to lose elasticity over time or as a result of other influences. This can cause many changes, including loss of volume, sagging, and other cosmetic concerns. Breast Lift surgery, medically referred to as Mastopexy, is designed to eliminate excess skin on the breasts and elevate the tissues to a younger-looking, more aesthetically appealing location on the chest. Additionally, this procedure can give breasts a firmer look and fuller appearance. To review, Breast Lift surgery can:

  • Reduce excess skin
  • Elevate breast tissue to a higher, more youthful-looking position
  • Enhance symmetry
  • Modify nipple and areola size and shape

What are the different Breast Lift techniques?

Several techniques can be used to complete Breast Lift surgery, and the right approach for your desired outcome and anatomical needs will be determined during your initial consultation with Dr. Salama. Most mastopexy procedures are performed using one of the following methods:




Why is one technique preferable to another?

One technique is not necessarily better than another, but one approach will likely be recommended as the best course of action for you. Each one offers unique benefits for the right patient. Dr. Salama will utilize the least invasive method that can optimize your results. If you have moderate droop, for instance, you probably will not need the anchor technique and instead may have a vertical lift, which has fewer incisions. However, if an anchor lift is recommended, you may not necessarily get the ideal results if you instead opt for the vertical lift. Dr. Salama will explain the options fully at your initial meeting and help you develop the appropriate treatment plan for your cosmetic goals and anatomic needs.

Are breast implants necessary?

Lots of women receive Breast Lift surgery without breast implants, and they are by no means an integral part of the procedure. Many patients, however, wish to increase the size of their breasts, as well as enhance their volume and fullness. Mastopexy can sometimes reduce the size of the breasts, and breast implants are often used to mediate that issue or even further enlarge the breasts. Breast Augmentation with Mastopexy (BAM) is a popular option. If you would like to discuss this option with Dr. Salama, you are encouraged to share your questions and concerns at your initial visit.

What should I expect during the procedure?

An outpatient procedure, Breast Lift surgery usually takes between one and two hours to perform, although the unique details of your treatment plan may modify this time frame. General anesthesia is used, and you should be able to return home the same day. You will be asked to complete a few pre-operative instructions prior to your operation, and there will be several post-operative instructions to follow as well. These are designed to help you have the best and safest experience possible.

How long will recovery take?

If you are having Breast Lift surgery as a single procedure (as opposed to part of a multi-procedure operation), you should expect to take at least a week or two off from work and normal activity, including school and common household duties. Some discomfort is normal, and we will provide medication to manage your pain. Swelling, tenderness, and bruising in the treated area is to be expected and will subside with time. Your home care instructions will include how to manage bandages and other important information. You should avoid strenuous exercise and recreation for at least four-to-six weeks. Swelling may continue for many months and up to a year or more, but the majority of inflammation should pass within a few months. After this time, you may not even notice the swelling. You’re usually considered to be fully healed after about 12 months. Scars will be very visible at first, but these marks should gradually soften, become smooth, and lose color as time passes.
