How Does a Breast Lift Work?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that lifts sagging breasts. This loss of elasticity is a common result of aging, as gravity affects how our skin and tissue lies. Breast lift procedures are done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Board-certified surgeon Dr. Mark Craig uses the latest surgical techniques to maximize results with minimal downtime.

The most common method for lifting the breasts involves three incisions. The first is made around the areola allowing Dr. Craig complete access to breast tissue and the ability to reposition the nipple higher on the breast. Another runs vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the crease beneath the breast. Finally, a third incision is made horizontally following the natural curve of the breast.

Once incisions are made, Dr. Craig works to meticulously thin unwanted fat pads and remove excess skin. A breast lift is often paired with a breast augmentation for women who also want to improve the size and shape of their breasts and provide superior fullness.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?

The ideal candidate for the procedure is a woman who is generally satisfied with the size of her breasts but has a significant amount of sagging after pregnancy, changes in weight, or the natural aging process. If you’d like to achieve a more youthful contour with perkier breasts, a breast lift might be right for you.

A breast lift can help improve self-image and give your self-confidence levels a boost. Women should be in good physical and mental health before undergoing breast lift surgery. This procedure is only performed on non-smoking patients.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?*

Every breast lift is unique, making surgery times vary significantly from patient to patient. However, the average breast lift surgery takes about 1-3 hours to perform. Patients are kept comfortable throughout and in most cases, are free to go home the same day.

What Results Will I See?*

Some changes in breast shape will be visible right away. Results will gradually improve as post-surgical swelling subsides and breasts ‘settle’ into their final position. Breast lift surgery can take upwards of 6-months to see an optimal outcome, but most patients are happy with the results immediately.

“I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Craig and his staff! Loved the fact that he told me upfront not to expect perfection, as I am 55 and that a tummy tuck and breast lift wouldn’t put me back to 16, but the results were fantastic! I couldn’t be more satisfied, I highly recommend Dr. Craig, very kind man and has a great sense of humor!”*

Is There Any Downtime?*

Breast lift surgery requires several weeks for full recovery. However, most women start to incorporate normal activities into their routine several days post-op. Depending on your job, you will most likely feel comfortable returning to work in about 1-week. Lifting anything greater than 10-15 lbs should be avoided for several weeks. Scars from breast lift surgery typically subside within 6-12 months.
