What is a breast lift?

Involutional mammary hypoplasia or loss of breast volume can occur due to hereditary factors, normal aging changes, or following pregnancy and breast feeding. The loss of volume in the breast, most notably in the upper breast poles, is accompanied by a deflation and flattening of the breast. Our SpaMedica cosmetic plastic surgery team and Dr. Mulholland will discuss the breast lift mastopexy and/or implant rejuvenation options with you to make sure you get the best treatment possible.

Breast lift procedures can have several different types of incisions with variable degrees of lifting power and capability. The most limited kind of breast lift is an incision around the areola with removal of some of the loose skin. The second type of breast incision called the “lollipop incision” involves a vertical limb under the areola that stops at the under breast crease. Finally, the most extensive breast lift is the mastopexy procedure (“the anchor incision”) which involves an under the breast scar together with the lollipop.

The mastopexy procedure takes approximately two hours to perform and is done under IV sedation or local anesthetic. Local anesthesia and some oral relaxation pills are very common sedation methods when undergoing breast lift procedures. There will be a fully certified anesthesiologist monitoring your IV sedation. Your post-operative care will be in certified SpaMedica recovery rooms with a well-trained recovery room nurse to ensure optimal care and safety.

Breast lift surgery requires several days of recovery. Your breast lift may be achieved through a breast implant inserted alone, or removal of extra skin from the breast to tighten the envelope and add more projection. Sometimes a combination of breast lift skin removal and a breast implant is performed. Breast lift surgery is very successful at achieving increased volume and projection as well as elevated nipple areola complex levels and there’s a high degree of patient satisfaction with the procedure.

Following your breast lift procedure Dr. Mulholland will begin a series of laser treatments designed to minimize the risk of visible scarring. These laser treatments can also ensure that you have the greatest probability of avoiding capsular formation and for established capsules will help soften the stiffness that can occur sometimes following breast augmentation and breast lift surgery.

Occasionally excision of soft tissue is combined with breast augmentation at the single stage, whereas in many circumstances two stage breast rejuvenation, breast lifting, removal of skin followed up by breast augmentation is recommended. Occasionally, and in the properly selected patient a large breast implant can eliminate the need for external breast lift scars.

Frequently Ask Questions

Who is a candidate for breast lift?

Women who have larger, droopy, heavier breasts that are aesthetically displeasing or do not match your body shape and disproportion. Sagging breasts, which are not large but are deflated due to past pregnancies, genetics, or aging and positioned too low on the chest. If your nipple areolar complexes (pigmented areas around nipples) are enlarged and/or pointing too far downward, combined with breast volume that is too large and droopy, or too deflated and saggy, then you may be a candidate for a breast lift.

What results can I expect from a breast lift?

You can expect smaller, perkier, more elevated and shapelier breasts. Dr Mulholland’s aesthetic judgment is for a natural-looking, anatomically shaped breast lift.

What is involved in a breast lift surgery?

The design of the incisions can vary but usually include incisions that extend around the nipple-areolar complex, vertically down to the fold under the breast (lollipop) and then, in some cases the scar extends horizontally along this crease (anchor).

In many cases, laser, radiofrequency or ultrasonic types of liposuction are used during the breast lift to remove fat and glandular tissue from the sides, helping to limit the length and extent of the scarring and improve breast and body contours. The nipple areolar complex is repositioned higher, the excess skin is removed, and the breast is reshaped in a pleasing contour and in a more normal position.

The short scar breast lift is often more aesthetically pleasing and does not include the horizontal scar under the breast. Often the procedures can be performed under local anesthesia alone, or together with light IV sedation.

The insertion of an implant as well, may or may not be advisable.

How quickly will I heal and is there pain associated with breast lift surgery?

You will go home in a bra with only light dressings over the incision lines 2-3 hours following your procedure. The bra is worn as a support dressing for 2-3 weeks. Sutures are usually completely removed within 2-3 weeks.

Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Light activities may be started in 7-10 days.

How much does a breast lift cost?

Cost start from $5,999 to $8,999 depending upon the extent of surgery and if an implant is included in the aesthetic plan.
