What is a breast lift?
A breast lift is a cosmetic surgery that can reposition the nipple and areola, remove excess skin, and improve the shape and appearance of sagging breasts.
Benefits of breast lift: What does a breast lift achieve
A breast lift can provide several benefits for individuals unhappy with the appearance of sagging breasts. These benefits include:
- Improved breast shape and improved volume distribution: Over time, breasts can lose their youthful shape and volume distribution. A breast lift can restore a youthful contour to the breasts, creating a perkier, more attractive appearance by condensing your volume and by tailoring your breast around the breast volume.
- Balanced breast symmetry: For individuals with asymmetrical breasts, a breast lift can help to correct the imbalance and create a more even and symmetrical appearance.
- Re-positioned nipples: If your nipples point downwards or fall below breast creases when your breasts aren’t supported, a breast lift can re-position them higher on the breasts and give a more aesthetically pleasing look.
- Restored nipple and areola proportion: As breasts sag, the areolae can stretch out of proportion. A breast lift can correct areolae by resizing them to better match the size and shape of the newly lifted breasts.
What is involved in a breast lift?
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgery that involves repositioning the nipple and areola (NAC) to a higher position on the breast. The correct position should be at the approximate inframammary fold, where the breast meets the chest wall at the bottom of the breast. However, this is not true for all patients if patients have particularly low breast fold or particularly high breast fold, this rule doe not apply.
During breast lift, excess skin is removed, and the breast shape is improved, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Also, the areolar size is reduced if required. After the breast lift, the incisions are closed, and splashproof tapes are applied. The individual is supposed to wear a compression garment to support the newly formed breasts.

Breast lift scars: How long will they exist?
During a breast lift procedure, incisions are made around the areola. These incisions form characteristic scars. The degree of scarring varies depending on the amount of excess skin removed. Scarring depends on the type of incision used for breast lift that can range from just around the areola (like in an areola reduction) to around the areola and vertically down (like a lollipop), to around the areola, vertically down, and in the fold underneath the breast (like an anchor).
Scars are inevitable, and it takes approximately 2 years for your scars to reach their final appearance scar. The appearance of scars will reduce over time and will blend into the natural skin tone. However, there is a natural variation in the appearance of scars in the general population. Most patients will have excellent scars that improve over time, especially with supportive treatments. However, there is a minority of patients who can have abnormal scarring, which may be hypertrophic, keloidal, pigmented, or stretched or regarded as unsightly.
