What is a breast lift ( Mastopexy )?
The breast lift procedure also called breast ptosis or mastopexy is a cosmetic surgery. It aims to correct sagging breasts. Indeed, mastopexy is performed by the cosmetic surgeon. It consists of repositioning the nipple and areola, tracing the mammary gland and removing excess skin, and tightening the muscles in the women's chests. This technique allows having symmetrical and harmoniously curved breasts.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia with a duration of two or three hours. After a few weeks, the patient can start work again without any problem.
Advantages & disadvantages
The main advantage of mastopexy is that it allows having a younger appearance of the body, a better shape of the breasts, and therefore more self-confidence. This surgery may cause some side effects such as swelling, infection, bleeding, hematoma, mild discomfort, numbness, and scars that may take a year or more to disappear. Subsequent pregnancy may influence the outcome.
To ensure the success of mastopexy, the patient must follow the pre-and postoperative instructions given by her surgeon.
Boob Lift surgery: Healing & recovery process
Breast ptosis (or breast uplift surgery) is an outpatient procedure performed under general sedation. The surgery usually takes one to three hours.
Doctors advise patients that have undergone this cosmetic surgery to relax. However, this does not mean that the patient must lie in his bed all day. In fact, doctors recommend that you do not stay inert after the surgery.
You are allowed to eat any food you want right after the procedure. You can take a shower starting from the second postoperative day. However, weekly wound care would be needed.
Pain sensation after this procedure is typically very moderate. All you need is to apply non-narcotic analgesics to make it fade. This helps for faster healing and reduces the risk of complications that are often seen with other types of narcotics.
Usually, there are only one or two surgical sutures. The rest are hidden under the skin and will dissolve with time. Here are the instructions that may be given to you after the surgery:
- Drains are usually not required;
- You must wear a surgical bra for four weeks;
- You may consider taking three to seven days off work;
- There are no rules you must follow after the third postoperative week.
It normally takes 2 months for the boobs to reach their final shape.
Would I have scars after recovery?
The most common concern with boob lift surgery is the scar after recovery. There must be a special protocol used for the boob scars. After two postsurgical weeks, the doctor will remove the paper tape previously placed in the operating room by the plastic surgeon. Then, a disinfected plastic dressing named Tegaderm will be applied to the scars.
It is recommended to leave this on for at least three months. However, the Tegaderm used on the cicatrice will require changing every month. The one placed at the crease below the boob may need to be changed more often than the one applied on the mammilla (nipple). The use of the medical dressing for three postoperative months significantly ameliorates scar quality.
What is a non-surgical breast lift?
During a non-surgical breast lift, we essentially take the patient's fat from other parts of the body through liposuction and inject it into their breasts tissue (lipofilling). Then we inject stem cells taken from their own blood.
Non-surgical breast lift results
The results of the non-surgical breast augmentation can last for many years, depending on the doctor’s technique.
This is a breast ptosis treatment option for women looking for a relatively small augmentation. It is also recommended for women who prefer natural results without breast implants.

During the breast lift, the surgeon does not use breast implants. Instead of that, he manipulates the existing breast tissue to straighten and tighten the breast. This gives your breasts a natural roundness and improves imperfections such as sagging breasts or asymmetry.
A breast lift is an esthetic procedure that all women can have recourse to starting from the age of 18.
The end result of a breast lift is more natural than a breast augmentation by implant. It also helps to rejuvenate and strengthen the breast.
A breast lift can be combined with breast reduction or breast augmentation.
Rarely will there be complications following breast surgery, however, it is possible to have bleeding or infection. It is important to have this operation performed by a plastic surgery specialist in one of the duly authorized establishments.
