Also known as a mastopexy, the breast lift is a surgical procedure that raises and reshapes breasts that have begun to significantly sag or droop by trimming excess skin and tightening supporting tissues. Anthony A. Admire can create an uplifted, youthful, contoured look, with breasts that sit are higher on the chest and feel firmer to the touch. Reach out and set up your consultation at AdmireMD Plastic Surgery + Skin Clinic to learn more about what a breast lift can do for you!

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Lift Surgery?

During your consultation, we’ll help you decide whether or not the breast lift is right for you. In most cases, women in good health are great candidates for a breast lift in Scottsdale, though some conditions (like pregnancy, which can impact your results) might make it smarter to wait.

You’re a good candidate for a breast lift if you’re in the Phoenix or Scottsdale area and you:

  • Have sagging breasts
  • See breasts that have lost shape or volume
  • Have flat or elongated breasts
  • Have nipples or areolas pointing downward
  • See that one breast is lower than the other
  • Are in good overall health
  • Maintain a stable weight
  • Have realistic expectations for surgery
  • Aren’t still planning to have children

More About the Mastopexy Surgical Procedure

Breast lift surgery in Phoenix is performed on an outpatient basis, under general anesthesia, and usually takes between one to three hours.

Depending on the size and shape of the breasts, as well as the degree of sagging and amount of excess skin, Anthony A. Admire surgeon will determine the best incision approach.

  • Two rings around the areola in a doughnut shape. This is ideal for women with small breasts, and involves minimal scarring around the areola and down to the breast crease, in a lollipop shape.
  • A lollipop shape, with an additional incision along the breast crease to create an anchor shape. This is the ideal approach for breasts that are dealing with significant sagging.

After the incisions are made, the breast tissue will be removed and reshaped, to achieve your desired breast contour. Your nipple and areola may be moved higher on the breast, or resized, before any excess skin is trimmed to create a tighter, more defined appearance. When the surgery is complete, the incisions will be closed and you’ll be moved to the recovery area.

When Can I See the Results of My Breast Lift?

The results of your breast lift will be visible immediately after your surgery, and will continue to improve as the swelling subsides and your scarring fades. While the results are not necessarily permanent (aging and gravity cannot be stopped, of course), they will allow you to enjoy a more youthful and contoured bust for many years to come.

What’s the Recovery Process Like?

After your breast lift in Phoenix, it’s normal to experience some bruising, soreness, and swelling for the first few days. Your breasts will likely be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a surgical bra for about a week, after which you’ll wear a support bra for about a month.

Anthony A. Admire will remove any stitches after one or two weeks, and you’ll be able to return to work within a week, although exercise and other strenuous activity should be avoided for about a month. Anthony A. Admire will make sure you have specific instructions for your individual recovery.

FAQ

What procedures can I combine with a breast lift?

Depending on what you aim to accomplish by undergoing breast surgery, a breast lift may be all you need in order to meet those goals and look and feel more youthful and attractive. If, however, you wish to reduce the size of your breasts at the same time, a breast reduction surgery can be done at the same time. If you would like your breasts to be larger and lifted, breast augmentation surgery or a breast lift is usually recommended. These procedures can be done at the same time.

Can I still breastfeed after a breast lift?

Yes. The vast majority of patients who undergo a breast lift will be able to breastfeed perfectly fine after they have healed from the surgery, just as they had been able to prior to surgery. When board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Admire performs the breast lift procedure, he is very careful not to sever the milk ducts, which he leaves intact and attached.

How long should I wait after childbirth before having a breast lift?

Generally speaking, it is best to wait for three to six months after you have finished breastfeeding before undergoing a breast lift. If you plan to have more children in the near future, you may also want to postpone the procedure as future pregnancies will again affect the position and sagginess of the breasts.
