Breast Lift

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to enhance the appearance of sagging breasts by reshaping and elevating them. Dr. Artur Fahradyan offers this surgical technique to restore youthful contours and firmness to your breasts and reverse age-related changes.

Elevate Sagging Breasts

A breast lift, medically known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to rejuvenate the appearance of sagging breasts. Over time, factors like gravity, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and aging can cause breasts to lose their natural firmness and shape. A breast lift involves removing excess skin, reshaping the breast tissue, and repositioning the nipple-areola complex to create a youthful and lifted contour. This can help restore a more youthful bustline.

Breast Lift Corrects:

  • Sagging or drooping breasts
  • Loss of breast volume
  • Nipples pointing downward
  • Uneven or asymmetrical breasts
  • Stretched or enlarged areolas

Breast Lift Preparation Guidelines:

  • Undergo a thorough medical evaluation to ensure you are in good health for surgery.
  • Communicate your desired outcomes and expectations with your surgeon.
  • If you smoke, quit at least a few weeks before the surgery.
  • Inform your surgeon of any medications or supplements you are taking.
  • Arrange for someone to drive you to and from the surgical facility.
  • Prepare for post-operative recovery with clothing, pillows, and the necessary supplies.
  • Enlist the help of a friend or family member to assist you during the initial days of recovery.

Breast Lift Aftercare Guidelines:

  • Allow your body ample time to recover and rest following the surgery.
  • Take prescribed pain medications as directed by your surgeon to manage discomfort.
  • Wear the recommended compression garment to reduce swelling and support healing.
  • Follow the provided instructions for cleaning and caring for your incisions to prevent infection.
  • Avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for the recommended duration.
  • Drink plenty of water to aid in the healing process and maintain overall health.
  • Follow a balanced diet rich in nutrients to promote healing.
  • Keep scheduled post-operative appointments with your surgeon.
  • Discuss scar management options with your surgeon and follow their recommendations.
  • Be vigilant for signs of infection, excessive bleeding, or other complications.

Breast Lift FAQs

How does breast lift work?

A breast lift surgery begins with an incision, typically one of three types: periareolar (around the areola), vertical (lollipop-shaped), or anchor-shaped (Wise pattern). Dr. Fahradyan makes these incisions to access the underlying breast tissue. Next, the breast tissue is lifted and reshaped, excess skin is removed, and the nipple-areola complex is repositioned. The skin is finally sutured to create a firmer, more aesthetically pleasing breast shape.

How is a breast lift different from breast augmentation?

A breast lift focuses on reshaping and elevating existing breast tissue, while breast augmentation involves enhancing breast size with implants. However, both procedures can be combined for comprehensive results.

Is a breast lift a permanent solution?

While a breast lift provides long-lasting results, aging and gravity may impact the breasts over time. Maintaining a stable weight can help prolong the outcome.

Can I breastfeed after a breast lift?

Breastfeeding may still be possible after a breast lift, as the nipple-areola complex is usually preserved. However, please discuss your intentions with Dr. Fahradyan to plan accordingly because some techniques may affect your ability to breastfeed.

What is the recovery time for a breast lift?

Recovery varies but generally involves a few weeks of limited physical activity. Patients can typically return to work within a week or two, depending on their job’s physical demands. However, strenuous workouts should be avoided for a few weeks.
