A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a type of plastic surgery procedure designed to improve the shape and position of the breasts. Women may seek this procedure for a variety of reasons. It can help lift the breasts to a higher and more aesthetically pleasing position on the chest wall, reduce the size of stretched out skin or enlarged areolas, or improve the symmetry of the breasts. Mastopexy can be used to restore a youthful appearance to sagging or drooping breasts due to aging, pregnancy, nursing, or significant weight loss. Ultimately, this procedure can help create a more balanced, proportionate look and increase self-confidence.
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a type of plastic surgery that is used to raise and reshape sagging breasts. The procedure involves removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue in order to raise the nipple and breast mound. This can also help improve the overall shape and contour of the breast. During the procedure, the surgeon will make an incision on the underside of the breast to remove excess skin and reposition the nipple and areola. They may also remove some of the breast tissue to make the breasts smaller and more proportional. The surgeon will then close the incisions with stitches and place a special dressing over them. Depending on your body and desired outcome, other techniques may be used to enhance your results. After surgery, you may need to wear a special supportive bra for several weeks to help reduce swelling and protect your newly shaped breasts.

Immediately following plastic surgery, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort. It is important to follow your doctor’s post-operative instructions in order to ensure the best possible outcome. It is also advised to wear a compression garment for two weeks after the procedure.
Most patients can return to normal daily activities after one week, but it may take up to four weeks to recover fully. During this period of recovery, it is important to limit physical activity and strenuous exercise. You should also avoid any activities that could put pressure on the chest area, such as driving or carrying heavy items. In addition, it is important to practice good hygiene habits in order to reduce the risk of infection.
