How does a breast lift work?

If you are unhappy with sagging, pendulous breasts, you are likely a good candidate for a breast lift. Ideal breast lift candidates:

  • Are in good overall health
  • Are at or near a healthy weight
  • Are non-smokers
  • Have breasts that look long, flat, or pendulous
  • Have nipples that point downward
  • Have asymmetrical breasts
  • Want to enhance the results of breast augmentation

This list is intended to be a general overview and by no means a substitute for meeting personally with Dr. Hyman for a free, no-obligation private consultation. During your first meeting, Dr. Hyman will speak with you at length to understand your unique concerns and aesthetic goals. He will review your medical history and evaluate your physical condition. He will answer your questions, address your concerns, and determine if a breast lift will achieve your personal aesthetic vision.

Breast lift incisions and scars

Dr. Hyman is experienced in a variety of mastopexy techniques. Depending on your specific situation, he may recommend one of the following surgical approaches:

Donut lift

As the name may suggest, donut lifts, also called periareolar lifts, involve a circular incision around the edge of the areola.

Lollipop lift

The lollipop lift, or vertical lift, involves a circular incision around the areola and a vertical incision running from the areola to the breast crease (inframammary fold).

Anchor lift

Anchor lifts involve three incisions and are primarily used for patients with severe sagging issues. The first incision is made around the edge of the areola, the second is made vertically from the areola to the breast crease, and the third is made along the inframammary fold.

Crescent lift

Crescent lifts involve a short incision made along the upper half of the areola. This technique is ideal for patients with only mild breast sagging.

No matter which breast lift surgery technique is used, Dr. Hyman will ensure your results are elegant and natural-looking, with scars as discreet as possible. While some breast lift incision methods, such as the crescent or periareolar options, are virtually invisible by design, other incision patterns are placed to be invisible, even in plunging necklines or bikini tops. Dr. Hyman recommends additional treatments to help reduce the appearance of scars, including creams and laser treatments, which can further enhance your beautiful results.

Breast lift recovery

Following the procedure, you will be given a soft, supportive bra to wear for the first week. A regular soft bra or sports bra without an underwire should be worn for the following three weeks. Most sutures placed during your breast lift surgery will dissolve on their own. Mild to moderate swelling is normal and will make the breasts appear larger for the first couple of weeks after surgery. You are encouraged to walk the day after surgery, but heavy exercise should be avoided for four weeks.
