Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that lifts and reshapes sagging breasts by removing excess skin and reshaping breast tissue.
In this article, we will take a closer look at mastopexy, including the most significant cosmetic, medical, and procedural benefits of the surgery.

Cosmetic Benefits of a Breast Lift
Lifted Breast Appearance
Saggy breasts can often feel deflated and elongated on your chest. A breast lift procedure provides patients with added support, giving them breasts that look perkier and feel firmer.
Improved Nipple Projection
A breast lift can help if your breasts are drooping and your nipples face downwards, a breast lift can help. During the breast reshaping process, your surgeon can reposition the nipple-areolar complex to give your nipples a more natural, forward-facing projection.
Enhanced Breast Shape
Deflated and drooping breasts may lose the attractive shape you ideally want in your breast appearance. Opting for a breast lift can restore a more attractive breast shape, giving your whole body a more contoured and youthful appearance.
Improved Balance Between Breasts and Buttocks
Enhancing the projection of your breasts through a breast lift procedure can create a more feminine, balanced form that improves the appearance and alignment of both your hips and buttocks.
Medical Benefits of a Breast Lift
Reduced Rash Underneath Breasts
Sagging breasts can cause irritation due to the presence of excess skin. Over time, this irritation and discomfort may lead to chafing, rashes, and, even worse, infected wounds. Breast lift surgery can alleviate this discomfort.
Reduced Appearance of Bra Indentations
Drooping breasts tend to weigh heavily inside your bra, which can increase the tension on the straps around your shoulders. This may lead to uncomfortable bra indentations, a problem that can easily be reduced with a breast lift procedure.
Improved Mobility For Exercise
Sagging breasts can make certain day-to-day activities, such as running, cleaning, and working out, incredibly difficult and uncomfortable. Breast lift surgery, through elevating the breasts and redistributing the weight evenly across your chest, can make these activities significantly easier.
Procedural Benefits of Breast Lift
There are certain breast lift techniques, such as the crescent lift and periareolar lift, which provide particularly low scar visibility. These procedures are designed for women experiencing a relatively small amount of sagging.
Generally Short Procedure Time
The general procedure time for breast lift surgery is between 2-3 hours. This is relatively short compared to other cosmetic procedures.
Less Than a Two-Month Recovery
Most patients can return to work and their daily activities within two weeks (once the initial swelling and soreness of the procedure have improved). Patients should wait 6-8 weeks before any kind of strenuous activity, but after that, a full recovery from your breast lift is expected.
Once the post-surgical swelling has completely subsided, and the breasts have settled into their natural position, the final results of the procedure will be visible. These results are long-lasting and will only be affected by natural ageing and significant fluctuations in weight.
Is a Breast Lift Worth It?
Breast lift surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure, as the breasts are an area of the body that many women look to alter and improve in order to achieve their ideal figure.
Most patients are satisfied with the outcome of their surgery and consider it to be a worthwhile procedure, as it leaves them with perkier and more youthful-looking breasts. This, in turn, can improve levels of self-esteem and provide a better quality of life.
