Over time, you may experience changes in skin elasticity due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, aging, gravity, and genetics. A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, reshapes and lifts the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the tissue.

What is a Breast Lift?

Breast lift aims to rejuvenate and enhance the position of the breasts on the chest. In some cases, the areola can enlarge over time, and can also be addressed.This procedure is highly customizable to your needs and goals. A breast lift procedure can be performed in combination with other procedures that change the size of the breasts, including breast augmentation and breast reduction procedures. 

Breast Lift Candidates

To be considered a good candidate for breast lift surgery, you should be in overall good health, a non-smoker and have a BMI of 30 or less. Dr. D’Agostino also recommends that her patients be at a stable weight for at least 6 months.

Your aesthetic concerns may include:

  • Flattened breasts
  • Sagging breast
  • The nipples fall below your breast crease
  • The nipple and areola face downwards
  • The skin on your chest is stretched out
  • Your areolas are enlarged
  • The breasts are at different heights

The Breast Lift Procedure

The proper technique for you will depend on your breast size and shape, position and size of the areolas, the amount the breasts sag, skin quality, and elasticity. Breast lifts begin by administering anesthesia. Next, your incision will be made. The breasts are reshaped, and the excess skin will be removed from the breasts. The remaining skin is then tightened to achieve the desired lift. The incisions will be closed with absorbable sutures and in most cases, a drain will not be necessary.

Breast Lift Recovery

During breast lift recovery, you must wear an elastic bandage or dressings over the surgery area to support the area, minimize swelling, and aid in the healing process. Your doctor will provide you with complete aftercare instructions, including:

  • How to care for the breasts
  • Medications to take to reduce discomfort and infection
  • Concerns that you should be aware of during the healing process
  • When to contact the medical office

I knew two things were most important to me when looking for the right surgeon: the results and bedside manner. I feel so grateful to have hit the jackpot with Dr D who gave me the BEST of both of those. From the first moment I met her in the consult, I knew she was different from most doctors. She is incredibly kind, sweet, patient, and attentive. She made me feel cared for in a way that’s hard to put into words, but when you’re preparing for a big surgery, it’s the exact type of energy that puts you at total ease. Dr D not only answered all my questions, on multiple different occasions, leading up to surgery but she was extremely patient with them all. 

Dr.D is amazing and truly the best!

The results are better than I imagined and I am so grateful to have found Dr. D. I couldn’t have made a better choice then choosing Dr.D for my surgery. She is one of a kind!

I am extremely pleased with Dr. D’Agostino.

I am extremely pleased with Dr. D’Agostino. She is always on time, personable and kind! She walked me through every step of my procedure, removed all of my cancer and did an amazing job. My scar is barely noticeable at just a couple weeks after my procedure. I will definitely be back for any other cosmetic needs.
