Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

A Breast Lift, (Mastopexy), is a surgical technique designed to reshape and lift sagging or drooping breasts. The procedure may be combined with an implant to increase fullness or restore volume. The procedure can also be combined with a procedure to reduce the size of the aereola if needed.

Dr. Roth will first listen to your concerns and goals. He will then gather a thorough medical history. Past medical events may impact your surgery, anesthesia, and recovery. Current issues such as; medications, herbal remedies, allergies, smoking, drug use, bleeding and scarring tendencies, will be reviewed. Chronic issues, (e.g. diabetes, high blood pressure, auto immune disease), are also important.

Dr. Roth will examine you and will describe not only what he sees, but also how it relates to your appearance or other issues. Many items need to be taken into consideration including the extent of the drooping, your breast size, your chest size, current placement of the nipple/aereola. The nipple and aereola will have to be repositioned in most cases. He will then explain what might be done to improve each area medically or surgically. Scar placement is usually discussed, as well as the option of an implant, (if appropriate). You may not wish to take advantage of every treatment that is available, but at least you can know about available options and what each might offer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a breast lift? What results can I expect?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that elevates the position of the breasts. This surgery is designed to lift sagging breasts to a more youthful, aesthetic position upon the chest.

What are the concentric (doughnut) and anchor-shaped breast lift techniques?

The concentric or “doughnut” breast lift is generally performed on women with smaller breasts. It involves removing a circular shaped piece of skin and repositioning the breasts. The anchor-shaped method is similar but removes a greater amount of breast tissue in an anchor shape.

What is the recovery period like? When can I return to work and strenuous activity?

The first few days are the most painful, but discomfort can easily be controlled with pain medications and will soon decrease. After about two weeks patients can return to work (if no heavy lifting is involved). Numbness and bruising may persist for several weeks.

What should I expect during breast lift surgery? How long does the procedure take?

Although there are variations as to how this procedure can be performed; typically, breast tissue is removed and the areola repositioned to a higher position upon the breast. Often, because tissue is removed, breast implant will be used to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. The procedure can take one to three hours to complete, depending on the method being used.
