What Is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure aimed at rejuvenating the appearance of the breasts by lifting and reshaping them to achieve a firmer, more youthful contour. This procedure involves removing excess skin, tightening the surrounding tissue, and repositioning the nipple and areola to a higher, more aesthetically pleasing position on the chest. Breast lifts are commonly sought by individuals experiencing breast ptosis (sagging) due to factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, or aging. By addressing these concerns, a breast lift, or mastopexy, can help restore confidence and satisfaction with the appearance of the breasts.

Is a Breast Lift Right for Me?

A breast lift, or mastopexy, may be suitable for individuals experiencing sagging or drooping breasts due to factors such as aging, pregnancy, weight loss, or genetics.

If you are interested in this procedure, please schedule your consultation with Higdon Plastic Surgery in Franklin, TN now. During this appointment, Dr. Higdon will assess your unique concerns and goals to determine if a breast lift is the right solution, tailoring a unique plan of action to restore your breast contour and confidence.

What to Expect The Breast Lift Procedure

During a breast lift (mastopexy) procedure, Dr. Kye Higdon makes careful incisions according to your predetermined surgical plan. These incisions are typically around the areola, and often require continuing the incision downward to the breast crease.  In cases of significant ptosis (sagging), an incision will also be needed horizontally along the breast crease. Excess skin is removed, and underlying breast tissue is reshaped and lifted to achieve a more youthful and perky appearance. If necessary, the size or position of the areolas may be adjusted to enhance symmetry and proportion.

Dr. Higdon then meticulously closes the incisions with sutures, resulting in minimal scarring that fades over time. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia and can take anywhere from two to four hours, depending on the individual's specific needs and the complexity of the surgery. By addressing sagging and restoring breast shape, a breast lift gives you a rejuvenated chest contour, boosting your self-image and enhancing your confidence.

Breast Lift Recovery

Following a breast lift procedure, you can expect some downtime for recovery. Initially, there may be mild to moderate discomfort, swelling, and bruising around the breasts, which can be managed with prescribed pain medication and wearing a supportive surgical bra. Dr. Higdon uses advanced prescribing methods that he helped develop, with a multi-modal analgesia approach that minimizes the need for narcotic prescriptions for his patients after surgery. It's essential to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for a few weeks to allow proper healing. Depending on individual recovery progress, patients typically return to light activities within a week or two. Results may vary, with some immediate improvement in breast shape and position. However, final results may take several weeks to months to fully manifest as swelling subsides and the breasts settle into their new position. Follow-up appointments with Dr. Higdon are essential to monitor healing progress, address concerns, and ensure optimal outcomes. Our team is here to support you through your recovery journey, so we encourage you to reach out with any questions or issues that may arise as you heal.
