What is a Breast Lift?

Mastopexy — also known as a breast lift — is a cosmetic surgery that redefines the breasts by trimming away excess skin and surgically tightening the existing tissue, which results in a firmer, younger-looking appearance. This body contouring surgery is performed for women who have lost firmness, size, and/or shape in their breasts due to weight loss, pregnancy, aging, or any other number of factors. Outstanding advancements in breast lift surgery have made this cosmetic procedure so effective and successful that new statistics by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons suggest a near 70% increase in demand since 2000. Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin proudly offer this effective procedure at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City, OK. By incorporating the latest methods, such as breast lift with implants, our surgeons can decide on the appropriate technique based upon the level of sag present while keeping in mind your desired result.

What Are the Benefits of a Breast Lift?

As the name implies, a breast lift can be an incredible option for patients who feel their breasts may appear droopy or saggy. By excising skin from underneath the breasts, our staff can make them appear much more perky and desirable. Additionally, the incisions of this procedure are hidden in the natural fold of the breast, making any scarring essentially unnoticeable.

How Are Breast Lifts Performed?

A breast lift takes approximately two hours or more and is performed with the patient under general anesthesia. The duration is dependent on the complexity of the procedure and whether or not implants will be incorporated into the surgery. The surgical technique used during the procedure typically falls under one of two categories, with the technique defined according to the type of incision. The inverted-T (known as an anchor) and the straight line vertical incisions are the most commonly used methods. After making the incision, any excess skin is removed, along with fat and tissue that is not needed. The remaining skin is then tightened, and the breasts are lifted — so they appear healthy. In most situations, the size of the areola is decreased to be symmetric with the new breast. At this time, an implant or a fat transfer can be performed if this was discussed with your surgeon prior to surgery.

What Can I expect After a Breast Lift?

Recovery from a breast lift is more extensive than a surgery involving implants only. After the procedure, you will wear a medical compression bra to reduce swelling. A thin tube may also be inserted near the incision to help with excess fluid that can build up after a surgical procedure. After surgery, the swelling frequently goes away within the first week. A member of our team will provide in-depth at-home treatment care instructions to help with your healing process. Aesthetic results after a breast lift surgery become evident after a few weeks as the breasts settle into a higher placement on your bustline. Your breasts will feel and appear natural, and you will feel boosted self-confidence.

Breast Lift FAQ

How much does a breast lift cost?
At your initial consultation, Dr. Nuveen or Dr. Caplin will listen to your concerns and assess your aesthetic goals before creating a unique treatment plan. After that, our team can better estimate your costs. When performed properly, a breast lift can significantly improve your body, so it's important to focus on using an experienced surgeon with extensive training. To help make cosmetic surgery easier to afford, Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates can help you find low-interest medical financing.

Do I need a breast lift or breast implants?
Whether you should get a breast lift, an augmentation with implants, or both, will depend on your aesthetic goals and concerns. In many patients, a breast lift can improve the shape and fullness of the breasts without implants. One of our surgeons will assess your physical condition and listen to your goals during your consultation. We will then help determine whether you should get a lift, implants, or breast augmentation with a lift.

Will my nipples be moved?
Typically, the nipple-areola complex will be shifted up during the breast lift. If your areolas are overly large or stretched, your surgeon may include an areola reduction during your surgery. This can be discussed during your consultation — so we can decide on the best incision pattern and technique to use during your breast lift.

How long will my results last?
With proper care after surgery, your results should last for many years. Your breasts will continue to age normally — so you might begin to see sagging and loose skin over time. Factors like significant weight gain or loss can alter your results — so it's best to maintain a stable weight after your breast lift.

Can a breast lift fix asymmetry?
A lift can improve asymmetry in your breasts if they are different in size, firmness, or degree of sagging. Dr. Nuveen or Dr. Caplin will assess the appearance and physical condition of your breasts during your consultation and discuss how a breast lift can help you.
