Mastopexy versus Breast Augmentation

Choosing between a breast lift and breast augmentation involves understanding the distinct purposes of each procedure. A breast lift focuses on reshaping and lifting existing breast tissue for a perkier, more youthful appearance, while breast augmentation primarily increases breast size and volume through the use of implants.

Breast Lift:

  • Ideal for addressing breast sagging due to factors such as aging, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations.
  • Reshapes and lifts existing breast tissue for a more youthful appearance.
  • Focuses on improving breast position and firmness without significantly changing breast size.  In fact, a small loss of volume typically occurs with a breast lift.

Breast Augmentation:

  • Increases breast size and volume using implants.
  • Suitable for those seeking larger or more voluminous breasts.
  • Enhances breast fullness and shape for aesthetic reasons.
  • Can restore fullness lost after pregnancy but by itself will not lift a sagging breast.

The Breast Lift Procedure

A breast lift, typically lasting around two hours under general anesthesia, involves specific incisions around the areola, vertically from the bottom of the areola to the breast crease and sometimes horizontally within the breast crease. Dr. Setty uses incisions based on the severity of breast sag and typically trims away excess skin, tightens the remaining skin, and lifts the breasts for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Setty uses special techniques to reposition existing breast tissue to help restore some upper pole fullness.  In some cases, Dr. Setty may perform a breast lift along with breast implants if discussed prior to surgery to help increase fullness more than can be achieved by a breast lift alone.

How long is the recovery after a breast lift?

Recovery time after a breast lift varies for each patient. Generally, you will wear a medical compression bra to assist in managing swelling and to support the breasts during healing. Initial discomfort and swelling will decrease over the following days, but it may take several weeks for the breasts to adjust to their new position. Dr. Setty provides specific home care instructions and recommends wearing a specialized surgical bra for several weeks post-surgery.

What can I expect after a breast lift surgery?

Following a breast lift, patients typically experience a small reduction in breast size, improved position, and enhanced firmness. The breasts will gradually adapt to their new placement over a few weeks, resulting in a more youthful and natural appearance. Swelling will subside, and you will see the full, aesthetic results as the breasts heal and adjust to their elevated position on the chest.

Will a breast lift leave visible scarring?

While scarring is inevitable with most surgical procedures, Dr. Setty employs advanced techniques to minimize scarring and he is well-known for his meticulous suturing, which also contributes to less noticeable scarring. Over time, the scars typically fade and become less noticeable. To speed appearance improvement, Setty Plastics and Aesthetics offers many post-procedure options to repair any remaining scarring.
