Breast Lift in Miami, FL
Over time, the effects of aging, gravity, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and even weight loss can cause breasts to droop, soften, and sag, a condition known as breast ptosis.
Many women decide to undergo breast lift surgery to reverse these changes. A breast lift surgery is designed to remove excess skin and elevate the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest.Book Consultation
Am I a Candidate for Breast Lift?
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is an excellent option for individuals happy with the size of their breasts but unsatisfied with the amount of breast sagging. Downward-pointing nipples and/or enlarged areolas are also good reasons to have the surgery. Ideal candidates should be physically healthy, non-smokers, at or near their ideal weight, and realistic regarding the procedure’s outcome.
If you are experiencing loss of breast volume as well, a combination of breast lift and augmentation with implants may be considered to achieve a fuller and more rejuvenated breast profile.
During your consultation, your cosmetic surgeon will carefully review your medical history and examine your cosmetic concerns to help you determine if a breast lift can fulfill your aesthetic goals.

How Is a Breast Lift Performed?
A breast lift procedure is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Multiple techniques are used for mastopexy, namely crescent, periareolar, lollipop, and anchor.
Crescent lift: The incision runs along the upper part of the areola
Periareolar lift: The incision runs around the areola
Lollipop lift: The incision runs around the areola and down the lower pole of the breast
Anchor lift: A lollipop lift incision is extended to include an incision along the breast crease (inframammary fold)
The technique used will depend on the degree of sagging, excess skin, and the extent of correction required.
Most breast lift procedures use the anchor-shaped incision, as this option allows for the greatest amount of correction and control.
After the incisions are made, excess skin is removed, and the breast tissue is reshaped. The nipple-areola complex is repositioned to a higher position on the patient’s chest to achieve the desired breast contour.
What Procedures Can Be Combined With My Breast Lift?
What Is Recovery Like After Breast Lift Surgery?
After a successful mastopexy surgery, a gauze dressing is placed on the breast and wrapped in an elastic bandage or surgical bra for about a week.
Most likely, patients will experience bruising, soreness, swelling, and pain around the incision area, but this can be managed with prescription medication. You will wear a supportive bra for several weeks post-surgery to reduce swelling and promote healing.
Many patients can return to work and perform light daily activities in about one to two weeks. However, strenuous activities or exercise should be avoided for at least four weeks to give the incisions ample time to heal.
Patients are advised to follow their plastic surgeon’s post-operative instructions to achieve a full recovery and optimal results.
What Results Can I Expect from a Breast Lift Procedure?
Your improved breast shape and contour will be noticeable immediately after surgery. The final result will be apparent as post-surgery swelling diminishes over the next few months. Scars will also improve and fade with time.
