Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy)

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, surgically lifts and reshapes the breasts in order to look more youthful, shapely, and firm. 

Ideal Candidates for Breast Lift Surgery

Women consider breast lift surgery for a variety of reasons and may have a number of goals, including to:

  • Restore breast shape and position after pregnancy or weight loss
  • Correct downward-pointing or uneven nipples
  • Reduce overly-large areolas
  • Create a more confident, body contour that harmonizes with the rest of the body
  • Complement breast augmentation results to give a fuller, lifted, and more youthful breast contour.

During Your Consultation

Dr. Markarian will advise you on the type of lift procedure necessary to correct your degree of breast sagging. Surgeons have developed three “basic” surgical techniques for different degrees of breast sagging which will lead to a “circle”, “lollipop”, or “anchor” incision scar. Dr. Markarian has the advanced aesthetic training to combine the techniques that will offer the best results for your body. He can also explain the special measures he takes to minimize scarring and achieve a high aesthetic standard for each patient.

Having Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift (mastopexy) surgery is performed under general anesthesia, meaning you will be completely asleep and feel nothing during surgery. The outpatient surgery takes a few hours, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas.
