Explore our actual patient before and after photos in the breast contour and lift gallery and learn more about the wide range of breast surgeries available. Many patients choose to combine a breast lift with breast implants to further increase the volume and profile of their breasts. 

What Does a Breast Lift Do?

A mastopexy can enhance and raise the breasts. While there are no medical complications associated with sagging breast tissue, or nipples pointing downward, some women may wish to have a more lifted appearance. A consultation with Drs. Keith Neaman and Dustin Christiansen can help patients determine if they would benefit from a breast lift and what results they can expect.

Breast Lift/Breast Contouring Benefits

A breast lift, with or without breast implants, can lift and firm breasts. This procedure allows our highly-skilled surgeons to restore a youthful and natural-looking appearance. A mastopexy can help:

  • Droopy breasts
  • Address breasts with lost volume or shape
  • Stretched-out breast tissue
  • Enlarged areolas
  • Downward-pointing nipples
  • Asymmetrical breasts

Most women will experience at least one of these issues in their lifetime. However, if you are planning to become pregnant, you should postpone any breast surgeries. A mastopexy can potentially complicate breastfeeding and nursing.

Your Breast Lift Procedure

Every breast lift is unique. A number of factors need to be considered including patient physique, current breast condition, and patient goals. Most mastopexy surgeries include elevating the nipples, removing breast tissue, and tightening the tissue for a profile that’s heightened and youthful.

Many breast lifts also include breast augmentation, or the inclusion of breast implants, as part of the breast surgery. Just as every patient is unique, so is every breast lift or breast contour surgery. Patients are well-informed before surgery day to know how to plan and what to expect from their personalized breast lift procedure.

I am almost 4 weeks post-op from having a breast lift, nipple reduction, and augmentation. It was a little scary trying to imagine how any surgeon was going to give me the results I was hoping for. And so far–I am thrilled with my results!! I have worked in the healthcare industry for 21 years and have seen the operations of many different offices. Every single employee here has made me feel welcome, comfortable, and has gone above and beyond.

How is a breast lift different than a breast augmentation?

A breast lift removes extra skin and usually requires repositioning the nipple. Breast augmentation is the addition of breast implants. Many times, these two procedures are performed together.

Will breast lift correct droopy breasts?

Yes, correcting droopy breasts is a major goal of a breast lift. Droopiness is caused by stretched skin and loss of tissue volume, and removing the excess skin restores a more youthful shape and contour. In some cases, additional volume is needed to achieve the desired look of the patient, so implants are added to the breast lift procedure.

Can a breast implant give the appearance of a lift?

In some cases, implants alone can give the appearance of a breast lift because it adds upper fullness. However, this is only possible for women whose nipples are currently above the skin fold of the breast. In other cases, women require a breast lift (perhaps in addition to breast implants) to achieve desired fullness.

Will I need additional breast surgeries in the future?

It depends. Everyone ages differently, and if you have additional children in the future, major weight fluctuations, or simply less collagen and elastin genetically, you may need additional breast surgeries in the future. However, a breast lift can dramatically reduce the odds of future cosmetic breast surgeries or delay additional surgeries by several years. The best way to decrease the odds of additional surgeries is to choose a reputable surgeon the first time, carefully follow after-care instructions, and avoid extreme weight swings and pregnancy in the future.

What is a breast lift exactly?

Breast lifts remove excess skin and usually reposition the nipple. The result is younger, perkier breasts. A breast lift is not the same as breast implants, though sometimes implants can be used in conjunction with a breast lift procedure for enhanced results.

Will nipple sensation be impacted by a breast lift?

It is a risk. Any surgery comes with potential side effects, and nipple sensation is dictated by a myriad of nerves in and around the area. However, most breast lift patients do not lose nipple sensation. A highly-skilled surgeon will give you the best chance of preventing loss of nipple sensation after breast surgery.

What type of incision should I get?

Breast lift incision options vary and include the classic crescent (incision in the fold of the breast), lollipop (where the incision circles the nipple before anchoring down to the crescent incision), and Benelli. Which incision you get is dependent on many factors, including your breasts, the amount of skin to be removed, and goals. However, these options are discussed during consultations, and patients are aware of what type of incision they’ll receive before surgery day.

How long is the downtime?

It varies based on the person, incision type, and whether or not you also opt for breast implants. However, after two weeks most patients can return to their gentler activities of daily living. Your surgeon will tell you when it’s safe to resume more demanding activities such as going to the gym. Proper rest and downtime is critical for the best recovery—and the best results.
