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.
How is A Breast Lift Performed?
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 After A Breast Lift
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 FAQ
Do I need a breast lift or breast implants?
Whether you should have a breast lift, implants, or both depends on your unique concerns. Often, a breast lift can improve the shape and fullness of your breasts without implants. Dr. Mang will evaluate your physical condition and listen to your goals in your consultation, then decide whether you should get a lift, implants, or an augmentation plus a lift.
Will my nipples be moved?
Generally, the nipple-areola complex will be moved up in the breast lift. If your areolas are excessively large or stretched, Dr. Mang can include an areola reduction during your surgery. This may be discussed during your consultation so he can decide on the best incision pattern to use during your breast lift.
Can a breast lift fix asymmetry?
A lift may improve asymmetry in your breasts if they're different in size, firmness, or level of sagging. Dr. Mang will assess the physical condition and appearance of your breasts during your consultation and discuss how a lift will be able to help. During your surgery, he will adjust the tissue so your breasts are equal in position and size for symmetry.
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.
