What is a Breast Lift?
Mastopexy or a breast lift is a cosmetic treatment that reshapes the breasts by reducing saggy skin and tightening the existing tissue to produce a firmer, younger look. This body contouring procedure can help women who have lost breast shape and volume because of breastfeeding, weight loss, aging, or gravity. Thanks to advancements in mastopexy techniques, it has made this procedure extremely effective and popular. Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang is proud to perform this surgery at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Mang can determine the best techniques and create a detailed surgical plan.
Is A Breast Lift For You?
At first, you may come to Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery for breast augmentation; however, after a private assessment, you may realize that a breast lift is a better option. Good candidates for a breast lift tend to have excess, saggy breast tissue. Usually, breasts that have decreased in elasticity require skin removal and tightening surgery to lift the breasts higher up on the chest wall. If your nipples point downward and your breasts appear stretched, a cosmetic lift can dramatically improve their appearance. If you are considering a breast lift, you should be in good health and at a healthy weight.
"I had breast surgery done from Dr. Mang 17 years ago, the results were amazing. I had minimal scarring. He and his staff followed up with me amazingly. Fast forward almost 20 years later, due to weight loss, weight gain, 2 more children and poor skin due to heritertly, I went back to Dr. Mang for another surgery. Again the results were perfect. In addition to excellent work, he checks on you PERSONALLY after your surgery. He is a talented surgeon. I again received exactly what I was looking for. Some people expect plastic surgeons to make them look like the housewives of Beverly Hills.. this isn’t going to happen ladies..However a good Dr. WILL create the best look and fit for you and what you have to work with."- A.L. / Google / Jun 09, 2020
"I always wanted to try out Botox, just a chicken committing because I don’t like needles; A few of my coworkers went with me to ease the idea of doing it alone.It’s important to note, they used clean and individual packages of needles for each of us and numbing cream with betadine on the spots I wanted to be injected with the filler. The process wasn’t bad at all, especially since they were doing a $9/unit special accompanied by a glass of Rose - how can I say no to that? When Dr. Mang injected my forehead and pulled out the needle, you can hear a small crunch; this is normal and Dr. Mang explained if you don’t hear this sound, it is not being done correctly. I wouldn’t have done this or brought other people unless it was anyone else than fellow Yelper, Anna M., because I trust her so much.Thank you for the opportunity - even though I got 10 units vs. 50 units of botox compared to a coworker - I feel that it was effective to iron out my wrinkles, even though I know I have minimal amount heading into my 30s. This was my X-mas gift to myself!I saw firsthand the difference for people who do have a lot of wrinkles & are young, so IMO botox is such an amazing product to help smooth out wrinkles."- J.X. / Google / Mar 01, 2020
"Dr. Brandon Mang has recently relocated his Pinellas Park office to South Tampa on Gandy Boulevard. I normally receive Botox injections from a nurse practitioner at a nearby practice. The people who have injected my Botox in the past have been quick in their process...almost too quick. Dr. Mang takes the time to discuss your areas of concern, applies numbing cream, and then marks these areas with Betadine to ensure no infection and proper placement. I chose Dr. Mang because he is an expert in his field. He and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Mang’s genuine bedside manner with his patients is truly one of the best I have ever encountered. He takes the time to answer all your questions and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the procedures you are inquiring about. I highly recommend Dr. Brandon Mang for all your plastic and cosmetic surgery needs."- A.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2020

A breast lift takes about 2 – 4 hours and is performed with general anesthesia. The timeframe for your procedure depends on the severity of saggy tissue. Based on your needs, Dr. Mang selects from different incision types, like the inverted-T or vertical. Next, Dr. Mang makes the incision, excises the saggy tissue, and removes excess fat. The remaining skin is tightened, and the breasts are positioned higher on the chest wall so they appear healthier and younger-looking. For most patients, the size of the areola is reconstructed and reduced to appear proportionate with the new breast shape. During this part of the surgery, we can insert an implant or perform a fat transfer. Additionally, we can always perform breast augmentation at a later date.
What To Expect
Recovery for a mastopexy is more extensive than breast augmentation surgery. After surgery, you will be fitted with a support bra to assist with swelling. A tiny tube is also inserted near the location of the incision to help with excess draining that can sometimes occur. The post-surgical swelling will decrease within a few days. Dr. Mang or a member of his team will provide specific aftercare instructions to assist your healing process. After the first few weeks, your results start to become noticeable as your newly shaped breasts start to heal. Once fully healed, your breasts will look and feel natural, and you will feel beautiful and more youthful.
Breast lift surgeries have transformed the lives of many Tampa, FL patients. If you experience sagging breasts that interfere with your daily activities or stop you from buying the clothes you want, a mastopexy can address these issues. During your first consultation, Dr. Mang will perform a thorough assessment and discuss your cosmetic goals. Before you leave, you will have a tailored treatment plan that outlines the cost and payment options. We encourage you to contact Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery and learn more about breast lift surgery.
