What is 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 (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.
Am I A Candidate for a breast lift?
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.

How does a breast lift work?
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 can I Expect after a breast lift?
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.
