How a Breast Lift Works

Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that lifts the breast tissue and nipple, restoring a more youthful appearance. Excess skin is removed to rejuvenate the shape of the breasts. The areola can also be reduced in size during a mastopexy.

Since the procedure targets excess skin rather than breast tissue, the volume of the breast is not reduced following surgery. However, removing this excess skin may make the patient's breasts appear fuller and rounder.

Breast Lift Surgery Overview

A breast lift may be what you need to address drooping, sagging, and asymmetry of the breasts. Dr. Smart is a board-certified plastic surgeon who will tailor treatment to your cosmetic goals. He and his team can answer any questions you may have about the breast lift procedure.

Ideal Candidates Who Should Undergo a Mastopexy?


Women who have developed ptosis (drooping breasts) and have good skin quality are candidates for mastopexy. Ideally, patients should be non-smokers in good overall health.

Breast Lift vs Breast Reduction

While breast lift and breast reduction are similar in some ways, a plastic surgeon may recommend one over the other. Women with very large breasts that cause back and shoulder pain may be better suited for a breast reduction rather than a lift. It is also possible to combine a breast reduction with a lift to achieve improved size and contours.

Breast Lift with Implants

Lift vs. Enlargement

During breast augmentation, a plastic surgeon increases your cup size using breast implants. During a breast lift, the goal is to reduce sagging and improve contours, but the volume of the breast remains essentially the same.

Why Combine Surgeries?

Some patients have drooping breasts that they would also like to enlarge. Placing breast implants allows us to augment the existing breast tissue while tightening the skin.

If both a breast augmentation and lift is what you need to truly achieve your cosmetic goals, Dr. Smart can combine these techniques into a single procedure.

Have Much Will My Breast Lift Cost?


The cost of the procedure varies based on your cosmetic goals. Dr. Smart's patient coordinator will explain the surgical fees to you. Your quote will include the surgeon's fee, the facility fee, the anesthesiologist fee, and the cost of implants if you choose to undergo a combined breast lift and enlargement. We can explain financing and payment options as part of the consultation.

The Breast Lift Procedure

Do you want to do something about sagging or lopsided breasts?

A breast lift may be the ideal option.

Here's what patients can expect during the treatment process:

Do you want to do something about sagging or lopsided breasts?

A breast lift may be the ideal option.

Consultation and Planning

Dr. Smart will discuss what you would like to change about your breasts, and determine if it is purely an issue of drooping or if there is also an issue with breast volume. Several measurements of your breasts are taken that will aid in planning your breast lift surgery, including which incision method will be used.

Administering Anesthesia

Dr. Smart typically uses general anesthesia for breast lift procedures. Your surgery is performed in a fully accredited outpatient surgery center located conveniently in Dr. Smart's professional building.

Surgical Incisions

After making incisions on the breast, Dr. Smart removes the excess skin in order to improve the shape and contour of the breast. If combined with a reduction, excess breast tissue can also be removed. If combined with augmentation, implants are placed.

Completing the Procedure

After all necessary refinements are made to the skin and other tissues of the breast, sutures are placed. You will be sent home in a bra-like compression garment that is easily concealed under your clothes and is worn for one to three weeks. You will need someone to drive you and be with you for the next 24 hours.

Can I Breastfeed after a Breast Lift?


Yes. However, if you are planning on having more children and breastfeeding in the future, a breast lift should be delayed. Pregnancy and breast feeding can reverse the results achieved through mastopexy.

Recovering from Breast Lift Surgery

Post-Op Care

Most patients are able to return to work in about a week. Pain is easily controlled with oral pain medication. Most patients can return to light exercise in three to four weeks, and full activity in six weeks. There will be four to five follow-up visits to our Frisco, TX, practice to monitor your recovery.

How Long Do Results Last?

The results of a breast lift can last for many years, but it's important to note that cosmetic enhancements are never permanent. With time, gravity will take its toll and your breasts will droop again. Other factors can lead to recurrence as well. These include weight loss and weight gain, pregnancy, and breastfeeding.

Even though the results won't last forever, Dr. Smart and his team can offer aftercare tips that can help you prolong the benefits of your breast lift.

One Breast Lift Patient's Journey

I cannot express enough how amazing Dr. Smart and his team are. I lost over 100lbs and needed my loose skin removed. I had an upper and lower body lift, arms, and breast lift. I had to overnight after my surgery and the nurses took such great care of me. They are always so professional and kind.

Dr. Smart’s work is absolutely amazing. He performed a miracle on my body and I couldn’t be happier with the results. There are also constant follow up visits to make sure everything is healing right, and when I needed to ask some questions, I was able to email the nurse and she got back to me right away.

This is the best establishment, extremely clean, with the most professional and kind people. If you are planning to have a body transforming surgery, look no further. Dr. Smart is your guy. Thank you again. Dr. Smart and team!
