What is a breast lift?

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that lifts breasts that have begun to sag due to the natural aging process, weight loss or gain, pregnancy, and/or breastfeeding. During this procedure, Dr. Schaffer will reposition the breast tissue to lift and reshape the breasts, excess skin will be removed and the nipple will be moved to a higher position on the breast to give the breasts a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

A breast lift can be performed with many different techniques. During your consultation, we will determine which technique best suits your needs and develop an appropriate treatment plan.

How long do results last?

The results of a breast lift are long-lasting, but with time, your breasts will begin to sag again. An additional breast lift may be required after several years in order to maintain your results. How quickly your breasts begin to sag can depend on genetics, age and bra wearing habits.

What is the recovery period?

We recommend patients plan to take at least three to four days off of work. If your job requires you to bend or lift, you should plan to take more time off. You can begin light walking the day following your breast lift procedure and slowly begin to add in activities after a couple weeks. Dr. Schaffer will give you further details regarding your recovery following your procedure.

Dr. Schaffer and his whole team were amazing. On March 25, 2017, I had a full tummy tuck-lipo and breast lift at the same time and all three were pretty much a breeze, I kept waiting on the pain. The whole experience was awesome. My family and I can't believe how quickly I recovered. I feel so comfortable with the whole team and Dr. Schaffer is such a pleasant and friendly person. I am very happy with the outcome and would do it again in a heartbeat. I think he is going to become an Auburn fan as well so that makes us have lots to chat about during the check up sessions. Thanks, Dr. Schaffer and the staff and Penny for tightening up my compression attire.
