What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift should not be confused with breast augmentation, although the two procedures are often performed together. Breast augmentation boosts the size and enhances the shape of breasts while a breast lift improves the appearances of sagging breasts and nipples.
Breasts naturally sag over time, due to the effects of gravity and age. This is also known as breast ptosis. While many people associate sagging breasts with older women, many younger women with larger breasts experience ptosis as well.
Other factors that motivate women to receive a breast lift include:
- Breast volume loss after breastfeeding and pregnancy
- Uneven or asymmetrical breasts
- Displaced or downward-pointing nipples
- Excess breast tissue due to weight fluctuation
The ideal breast lift candidate suffers from one or more of these conditions and is age 20 or older. Breast lifts should not be performed when any infections or illnesses are present.
How Breast Lift Surgery Works
The mastopexy involves the lifting of breast tissue and the repositioning of the nipple. The desired effect is breasts that aren't sagging and appear more youthful. The breast lift, in some women, also enhances breast volume and texture.
Breast lift surgery is most often performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning it is complete in one session and doesn't require an overnight hospital stay. The procedure itself involves just a series of small incisions and is performed with local anesthesia, so there is no pain during the surgery itself.
Breast lift recovery is fairly minimal, although all heavy lifting and strenuous activity should be avoided for several weeks following the surgery. Breast lift cost varies depending on the nature of the procedure and your needs as a patient.
