About Breast Lift Surgery
A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes can be due to the natural aging process, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. A surgical breast lift at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics (Allen, McKinney, and Dallas, TX) is a body contouring procedure that redefines the breasts by reducing loose skin and pulling tight the existing tissue to produce a healthier look. This body reshaping surgery is offered to women who have lost breast fullness and shape and who are experiencing breast sag. Medical breakthroughs in mastopexy techniques have made this cosmetic surgery so effective that new statistics released by the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) reveal around a 70% increase in demand since 2000. Dr. Naveen Setty, our board-certified plastic surgeon, performs this cosmetic breast surgery at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics. By incorporating the most advanced methods, Dr. Setty can choose the proper technique depending on the degree of sag present to achieve the desired aesthetic goal. After excess skin and glandular tissue are removed, the breasts are lifted up into a more youthful position. Once the surgery is complete, you may have a slightly reduced breast size but enhanced position and enhanced breast firmness. Your final results should include uplifted, perkier breasts that may be seen a few months after your body heals.
Many women come to Setty Plastics & Aesthetics hoping to get breast augmentation, but after a private assessment, it may be confirmed that a mastopexy may be better suited. A breast lift can address breast sagging caused by the effects of aging and gravity. Candidates may also have breasts that have lost their firmness because of weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. To reduce skin looseness, these candidates may have nipples that point down (or to the side) or have stretched out areolas. This can only be fixed with a surgery to raise the breasts higher on the chest wall to bring back natural suppleness to your breasts. If you are contemplating a breast lift, you need to be in good health and at a stable weight to have this surgery.
Breast Lift Reviews
"I am 6 weeks out from a breast lift and augmentation, had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. I was a little nervous going into the procedure, but I trust Dr. Setty and he and his staff did an incredible job making me comfortable throughout the whole process. I had no idea how much this surgery would change my entire upper body! It has pulled in a lot of excess skin, and of course, I have seen such a great improvement in the placement of my breasts. I had the new Ideal Implants put in, which is a structured saline implant. I always thought I would do silicone, but when I felt the difference of the new implants, I wanted them. I learned that they have layers of structure with saline in between so you can have a puncture and it won't completely deflate - plus it just felt better to know I was putting something with saline in my body rather than silicone - even though silicone implants have come so far. I had the surgery and the first couple days I was sleeping quite a bit - in a little pain, but the medicine really helped. I was up and moving around a decent amount most of the recovery time. By day three, I was fairly back to normal - just sore in the breast area and a little in my back. I was back at work by day five, but kept it a little limited, and then fully back to normal by a week and a half. I have very little scarring, but have signed up for some microneedling to get rid of that. I just saw my before photos today and WOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWW, what a difference!! I am just so happy I finally did this surgery and glad I didn't wait a minute longer - I look better in shirts, swimming suits and am so excited about all the new types of clothing I am able to wear! Surgery is a big deal and there are a lot of things that can go wrong, so I am so happy this was the outcome, but that is exactly why I chose Dr. Setty to do my surgery - because I knew it would be safe, and I knew he would go the extra mile to make my results perfect."- H.J. / Google / Jun 28, 2017
"I am 52 years old and I had an explant and breast lift surgery with the incisions around and below the nipples. The surgery took place on Christmas Eve 2013. The surgery went extremely well and I was up moving around within 24 hours with hardly any pain considering the surgery I had just under gone. I was completely blown away by the way my breast looked after 3 weeks. I love my new breasts! Other than a little bit of swelling, my recovery was uneventful and the pain was very minimal. It is nice to have my breasts back again without implants and they are really cute without implants! I'm so thankful I had a good surgeon. I got everything I asked for and more!"- 1.1. / Google / Jun 28, 2014

A breast lift takes about two hours or more and is performed using general anesthesia. The time for this surgery is dependent upon the severity of breast sag. The surgical technique used for mastopexy surgery typically falls within two categories — the technique is defined by the type of the incision. Dr. Setty performs 1 – 3 incisions on the breast for this procedure:
- Around the areola
- Vertically from the bottom of the areola to the breast crease
- Horizontally within the breast crease
Dr. Setty usually performs breast lift surgery using the first two incisions and only ads the third one if there is a significant excess amount of skin. Once the incision is made, any excess skin is carefully trimmed away along with fat and tissue that is not desired. The skin left behind is then tightened and the breasts are brought up and lifted so they appear younger and healthy. In most situations, the size of the areola is reduced to be symmetric with the new shape of the breast. It is during this time an implant or a fat transfer can be placed inside the breast if this was discussed with Dr. Setty before surgery. If the lift is the only technique being performed and if breast fullness and shape are a worry, breast implants can be implemented at a different date.
What To Expect
The overall recovery period for a mastopexy is more extensive than breast augmentation surgery. After the procedure, you will wear a medical compression bra to help with swelling and to minimize movement of the breasts. A tiny tube is also inserted near the surgical area to help with excess drainage that can often occur after a breast lift. After surgery, the swelling will decrease within a few days. You will need plenty of rest during your recovery.Dr. Setty or a member of his team will provide specific, home treatment care instructions to assist your healing process. After your bandages are removed at a follow-up appointment, Dr. Setty will require you to wear a specialized surgical bra for several weeks. Aesthetic results after a breast lift treatment appear after a few weeks as the breasts adjust to their higher placement on your chest. Your breasts will appear natural, and you will feel beautiful and more youthful.
