Breast lift surgery, also known as, mastopexy, can restore the contour of the breasts to a more youthful-looking, vivacious state. A breast lift effectively lifts and tightens breast tissue. Likely candidates who have sagging breasts due to past pregnancies, genetics, weight loss, or aging should consider the breast lift procedure at A New You Plastic Surgery and Laser Center. A breast lift can also reduce sagging if it is too substantial to be treated with an implant alone or if the nipple-areolar complexes (pigmentated area around the nipple) are enlarged.
Breast lift surgery helps patients achieve a more attractive, feminine shape and contour, and better proportioned areolas. Often, breast augmentation surgery is performed in combination with mastopexy, using a specialized endoscopic technique for implant placement.

Breast lift surgery takes approximately one to three hours and is performed on an outpatient basis at our state-of-the-art, fully accredited surgical suite under local or general anesthesia.*
While Dr. Shah may provide several options for the placement of the incisions required for the breast lift procedure to accommodate your individual needs, generally the incisions are placed around the nipple-areolar complex and in the crease underneath the breast. During breast lift surgery, excess skin is removed from around the nipple-areolar complex and from the bottom of the breast. The nipple-areolar complex is then repositioned higher. The insertion of a breast implant, as well, may or may not be advisable during the procedure.
Since breast lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, patients go home in a bra with only light dressings over the incision lines. The bra is worn as a “dressing” for two to three weeks and sutures are usually removed in two to three weeks. Initial discomfort or pain is controlled with oral medications. Light activities may be resumed in seven to ten days; however, you should avoid mild or strenuous exercise for several weeks and should be extremely gentle with your breasts for at least six weeks following surgery.*
