Breast Lift – Get Your Volume and Perkiness Back
A breast lift is a plastic surgery procedure that’s designed to lift and contour breasts that may have deflated after breastfeeding, aging, or weight loss. The breast lift is designed to help patients feel confident about their breasts’ appearance again, especially after major life changes. Patients who undergo a breast lift often report feeling much more confident and happy with themselves again.
How Does a Breast Lift Work?
The breast lift is performed in such a way as to allow your plastic surgeon to remove excess skin and fat that may be exacerbating the “drooping” appearance. The breast lift typically involves an incision around the areola or a lollipop incision to more completely reshape the breast. After excess skin and breast tissue are sculpted, the nipple is repositioned to show off the new breast shape. Patients should expect some minor loss in size after a breast lift.
Who Is a Good Candidate For a Breast Lift?
You’re a good candidate for a breast lift if you’ve lost volume and sagged from breastfeeding, weight loss, or both. Ideal candidates have significant drooping or volume loss. All patients should be nonsmokers with realistic expectations for their procedure.

What Results Will I See?*
Most patients can see initial results immediately after surgery, as your breasts will have an immediate uplifted look. You will be closer to your new baseline appearance within 4 to 6 weeks after surgery when the majority of swelling and bruising have gone down. Keep in mind that final results may not be visible until about 6 to 12 months after your surgery, as minor post-surgical swelling may still be present.
What is the Recovery Like?*
Most of the recovery takes place over the course of 4 to 6 weeks. During the first week, you should expect to spend plenty of time resting and recuperating at home. We recommend having a good support system in place at home, as your movements will be limited. You’ll also be required to wear a support bra to help reduce post-surgical swelling and bruising. Patients are usually cleared to return to work after one week and can resume strenuous physical activity at about the 6-week mark.
