Breast uplift, also known as mastopexy or breast lift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to raise and reshape sagging or drooping breasts. This surgery is commonly sought by individuals whose breasts have lost firmness and elasticity due to factors such as aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, or genetics. Breast uplift can restore a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing breast contour. Here are key aspects of breast uplift:

Consultation and Evaluation:

A consultation with a plastic surgeon is the first step, during which the patient’s goals, medical history, and expectations are discussed.

A physical examination helps the surgeon assess the degree of breast sagging, nipple position, and overall breast shape.

Incision Options:

Different incision patterns are used in breast uplift surgery, and the choice depends on the extent of sagging.

Common incision types include around the areola (periareolar), a vertical incision from the areola to the breast crease, and a horizontal incision along the breast crease (inverted T or anchor-shaped).

Surgical Procedure:

Breast uplift surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia for the patient’s comfort.

Excess skin is removed, and the underlying breast tissue is reshaped to lift and firm the breasts.

If necessary, the surgeon adjusts the position of the nipple and areola to create a more youthful appearance.


Postoperative care instructions are provided, including wearing a supportive bra to aid in the healing process.

Discomfort is managed with prescribed medications, and patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities during the initial recovery period.

Results and Longevity:

Immediate results are noticeable, although there may be some initial swelling.

The longevity of results depends on factors such as aging, lifestyle, and changes in weight. However, the effects of a breast uplift are generally long-lasting.

Combination Procedures:

Breast uplift can be combined with other procedures, such as breast augmentation using implants, to address both sagging and volume loss.

Potential Complications:

Risks associated with breast uplift surgery include scarring, changes in nipple sensation, and asymmetry. It’s important for patients to be aware of these potential complications and discuss them with their surgeon.

Breast uplift is a tailored procedure, and the specific approach is customized to each individual’s unique needs and goals. Clear communication with the plastic surgeon is crucial for a thorough understanding of the procedure, expected outcomes, and potential risks.
