A breast lift, also known as mastopexy surgery, is a procedure that can help women who are unhappy with their breasts due to sagging and lost shape. This typically happens as a result of age, breastfeeding, pregnancy and significant weight loss. Women in all age ranges have undergone breast lift surgery in an effort to improve the size and contour of their breasts.
What are the Benefits of Breast Lift Surgery?
There are several key benefits that women who choose this surgery will enjoy. For some women, this simple procedure can even be life-changing on an emotional and physical level. The benefits can include:
- Breasts that appear perkier, firmer and fuller
- A younger-looking and more feminine body shape
- More options and better fits for bras, swimsuits and shirts
- Increased self-confidence and self-esteem
- Improved body proportions
Breast lift surgery gives you a better version of yourself, not a whole new you. The surgery is only meant to build upon the natural contours of your body by re-forming your own existing breast tissue.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
A breast lift is an outpatient treatment that is done using general anesthesia. The procedure involves the surgeon making an incision to remove excess skin and reposition breast tissue in a natural way to improve the look of the breasts.
After a breast lift procedure, there may be bruising, swelling and tenderness on and around the incision sites. Medication will be prescribed to help with discomfort during the healing process.
During the healing process, you will be asked to wear a special garment to support your breasts and help them maintain their new form. You will also be provided with post-surgical care instructions that offer useful information on what you can do to promote a complete and uneventful recovery.

Who is a Candidate?
Potential candidates for breast lift surgery may need to be non-smokers in good overall mental and physical health. They should also be aware of the potential risks of the procedure and have specific goals in mind for the surgery. It’s recommended that candidates have experienced changes in the volume, shape or position of their breasts that they are dissatisfied with. Other effects that may make breast lift surgery a good option can include asymmetry (uneven appearance), a pendulous shape, downward-pointing nipples or overstretched skin.
