Breast Lift

Many women develop deflated, droopy breasts, no matter what their age. However, this is more common in women who have had children or who have experienced significant weight loss. Breast lift surgery is designed to remove loose, stretched breast skin and return the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest wall.

Avg Cost: $7000+
Avg Recovery: 4 - 6 Weeks
Discomfort Level:
Anesthesia: Local, General or IV Sedation

Before your breast lift surgery, technically called a mastopexy, Dr. Cho will meet with you to review your medical history and evaluate the degree of ptosis, or sagging, in your breasts. He will talk with you about your cosmetic goals and use this information, combined with information about your unique anatomy, to determine the right technique for your breast lift. If you desire volume restoration in addition to a more youthful looking breast, Dr. Cho may recommend a breast lift with implants.

During breast lift surgery Dr. Cho will return your breasts to a more youthful position on the chest wall, and he will reposition the nipples so that they are proportionate to your breast dimensions. Whether you have a breast lift or combined breast lift and breast augmentation, you will receive general or sedation anesthesia. The entire breast lift should take 1-3 hours.

If you desire volume restoration in addition to a more youthful looking breast, Dr. Cho may recommend a breast lift with implants. The breast lift procedure can also be combined with a breast reduction.

PROS

CONS

  • Breast lift surgery is a good option for women whose breast skin has stretched due to pregnancy, weight loss or breastfeeding.
  • Downtime is generally just 5 days.
  • Most patients require only over-the-counter pain medication.
  • Complications are rare compared to other surgical procedures.
  • A breast lift can make asymmetrical breasts appear similar.
  • A breast lift will not change the size of your breasts significantly.
  • You will have scars from the incisions, which will fade over the next year or two.
  • You will have to maintain your weight to keep the same results over time.

Breast lift surgery is considered safe when it is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon. Risks include bleeding, infection and reactions to anesthesia. There is also a risk of damage to the nipples or areolas, or difficulty breastfeeding in the future. Any numbness in the nipples or breasts usually resolves after a few weeks. You should tell your doctor and anesthesiologist about your medications, including supplements and vitamins. They might request that you stop taking blood thinners and fish oil capsules.
