Breast Lift

Breast Lift

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to restore sagging breasts to a perkier, more youthful appearance by removing excess skin and tightening the breast envelope.
With changes occurring during pregnancy, nursing, or the natural aging process, the breasts can start to droop and have a more deflated appearance. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sepideh Saber brings a woman’s perspective to this very popular procedure, with outcomes that have delighted patients.

Breast Lift with Augmentation or Reduction

A breast lift can restore the breasts to a more raised and youthful position. It is frequently combined with a breast augmentation to restore or increase volume as well as projection. The augmentation can be done with the placement of breast implants or with fat transfer to the breasts.

In many cases, a breast lift is combined with a breast reduction if so desired by the patient. Excessively large breasts can result in physical and psychological discomfort. At the time of the breast lift, Dr. Saber can sculpt the breasts into a beautifully proportioned size and shape

Benefits of a Breast Lift

  • Sagging breasts are raised to a perkier and more youthful position
  • Deflated-appearing breasts are restored to a rounder and firmer natural shape
  • Breast asymmetries in size or shape can be corrected to achieve symmetry between the breasts
  • Drooping areolas and downward-pointing nipples can be lifted to a more raised position
  • Enlarged areolas can be reduced in size at the time of the breast lift

Is a Breast Lift Right for You?

When considering whether a breast lift is right for you, it is important to keep the following in mind:

  • A breast lift is not the same as breast augmentation. That is, a lift will not increase the size of your breasts on its own and is actually likely to somewhat decrease However, a lift raises the breast up to a higher position on the chest wall and thereby restores the deflated appearance of the breasts to a rounder and fuller shape.
  • In carefully selected patients, a lift and an augmentation can be performed simultaneously for a lifted, fuller, and more projected appearance than could be achieved with a lift alone. This involves combining a breast lift procedure with the placement of breast implants or with fat grafting to the breasts.
  • Enhancements are individualized and results will vary from person to person. When you talk to Dr. Saber, she will take the time to listen to your concerns and understand your goals. She will then formulate a customized treatment plan so that you know what to expect from your procedure(s).

Getting a Breast Lift


Dr. Saber will review your medical history, go over what will happen on the day of the surgery, and cover post-recovery details including a frank discussion of the risks as well as the most likely benefits in your case. The doctor believes that patients must be fully informed so they can make the best possible decisions for themselves.

The Procedure

A breast lift with or without an augmentation or a reduction is an outpatient procedure. On the day of the procedure, Dr. Saber will have a board-certified anesthesiologist on board for patient safety.

As per your prior discussions with Dr. Saber, she will make an incision in one of three ways depending on the degree of lift required:

  • Periareolar incision: This technique involves an incision only around the areola. It has the least number of incisions but only allows for a subtle lift.
  • Lollipop incision: This is a periareolar incision combined with an additional vertical incision from the lower border of the areola to the lower fold of the breast. The lollipop breast lift is the technique most commonly used by Dr. Saber. It allows for a powerful lift and a beautiful round shape of the breast.
  • Anchor breast incision: This technique is a lollipop incision with an additional horizontal incision along the lower fold of the breast. The horizontal incision is typically hidden along the lower fold. This technique is used in patients who require a significant breast lift due to excessively loose skin and significantly deflated breast tissues.

Next, Dr. Saber will perform the necessary reshaping and lifting techniques to achieve your desired look. If you have decided on additional enhancement procedures such as placement of an implant or fat transfer to the breasts, Dr. Saber will have discussed your implant size, shape, and position or the fat harvesting sites and transfer volumes with you before surgery so she can provide you with beautiful results while you know what to expect. The incisions are then closed in multiple layers and in a most detailed manner to reduce tension and minimize post-operative scarring.

The Recovery Process

Following the surgery, swelling, bruising, and soreness can be expected. You will be prescribed pain medication and a prophylactic antibiotic to start taking as soon as you arrive home.

Many patients can return to work and light daily activities after one to two weeks, although more strenuous activities and exercising should be postponed for up to six weeks. Dr. Saber will meet you on a weekly basis for the first three to six weeks.

Incision scars, some of which may blend into the breasts’ natural contours, should gradually fade over time. Once your incisions have healed, Dr. Saber will continue to treat them with you to ensure minimal visible scarring.
