Breast lift (Mastopexy) surgery is a commonly performed procedure that raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and reshaping the breast tissue. This is the procedure of choice if you are happy with your breast size, but would like to lift the breast and improve its shape. In some cases, it also reduces the size of the areola, if enlarged. In certain cases, this can be combined with an implant augmentation to both improve the shape and increase the size of the breast.
What To Expect
Depending on how much lift is required, three different incisions may be used: periareolar (circular, around the nipple), vertical (lollipop-shaped), or Wise pattern (anchor-shaped). The goal is to raise the nipple and improve the breast shape, or contour. The surgery is performed as an outpatient, meaning you will go home the same day as your surgery and recover at home. Dr. Shore will see you the next day in her office, and after that at two weeks, six weeks and then again three months after your surgery. Your activity afterwards will be restricted and gradually increased as you heal from surgery. Your activity afterwards will be restricted, and gradually increased as you heal from surgery. Most women can return to work within two weeks after surgery.
