About Breast Lift Surgery

Get the wow factor you have been looking for with breast lift surgery. This skin tightening cosmetic surgery restores sagging breasts, removes loose skin, and repositions a downward pointing nipple with advanced plastic surgery techniques. A breast lift by our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, can elevate the breast and create a more desirable contour. During the initial consultation at Y Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery, some women also request implants in combination with their lift for truly transformative results. In many cases, a lift alone can provide such dramatic results that patients are happy with their new shape and size.  At Y Plastic, it is not uncommon to have more than one surgical procedure in combination with the lift, such as the mommy makeover, tummy tuck, or arm lift. Many women who have had this surgery report high levels of satisfaction and improved self-esteem.

Ideal Candidates

During the initial consultation and after a thorough exam, we will help determine if a breast lift is the right surgery for you. Ideal candidates for this operation are women who:

  • Have realistic ideals about what breast lift surgery can do
  • Have breasts that need more volume or better shape
  • Have breasts that hang, are stretched out, or are different lengths
  • Have nipples that point downward or rest underneath the breasts
  • Experienced a loss of skin elasticity with weight loss,  pregnancy, or advanced age

What to Expect

Breast lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and is considered an out-patient surgery. There will be many factors to discuss prior to the surgery day, one being where the incision will be placed. There are three (3) commonly practiced incision points made in lift surgery:

  • Incision made along each areola
  • Incision made along each areola, plus a vertical incision down to the crease under the breasts
  • Incision made along each areola, plus a vertical incision down to the crease under the breast, and another horizontal line following the direction of the breast fold

Depending on how invasive your lift needs to be, this will determine which incision will be used. This procedure will produce surgery scars; however, our plastic surgeon will do everything possible to make the scars as concealable as possible. We will also provide information on how to best care for your surgical wounds for fast, healthy healing.

Anticipated Results

With breast lift surgery, the patient will see immediate results in the shape of her breasts, and an even better result after the swelling from surgery subsides. The recovery will vary as some patients will have had a breast lift in combination with another plastic surgery procedure, such as a breast augmentation, reduction, or tummy tuck. Nevertheless, patients will be urged to do light activities, such as slowly moving around the room, or spend a few minutes standing within the first 48 hours. There should be no heavy lifting or strenuous activity involving the chest whatsoever. Patients can restart their normal activities within 2 – 3 weeks, but exercise should not be attempted for

6 – 8 weeks.

There is a myth that women who have breast lift surgery never have to wear a bra again. This is not true as you will want to wear a bra to keep the breasts in the right position. It is also important to realize that the breast skin will continue to age regardless of this surgical intervention. For best long-term results, proper garments should be worn to maintain the breast position.
