A breast lift surgery restores aesthetic youthfulness by elevating and tightening the shape of the breasts.
With the passage of time, the breast mound naturally descends and this is often accelerated by weight change, pregnancy and breast-feeding. The result is sagging breasts with stretched skin, loss of elasticity, poor shape and lack of firmness which can seriously affect your appearance and self-esteem. Breasts that were once perky and youthful now appear deflated, and sag much lower on the chest.
A breast lift is a surgery that restores breasts to a more youthful position on the chest, enhancing the overall upper body contour.
Are You a Candidate for a breast lift?
We may recommend a breast lift for you if you have any of the following concerns:
- Breasts that hang at a much lower point than they did originally
- Stretching of the skin, nipple and areola due to sagging
- Your breasts have lost volume and appear deflated
- Your nipples point downward or hang lower than your breast crease
A breast lift will not add volume to the breasts, but implants can be added to your procedure to produce this effect.

The Recovery Process
You should be able to return home on the same day as your surgery. We will prescribe pain medication to keep you comfortable while any bruising and swelling after the surgery lessen. Rigorous workouts that might place stress on the breast incisions should be delayed for 4 weeks. Any residual scarring from the incisions should be mild and fade with time.
