Breast Lift Surgery in Miami

Sagging breasts, enlarged areolas, and loss of firmness are all symptoms of aging, caused by natural phenomena like pregnancy, weight changes, and gravity. A breast lift surgery, also known as a mastopexy, targets all of these common problems by lifting and reshaping the breast contour for a youthful shape and firmness.

Am I A Good Candidate For A Breast Lift?

Many women may be good candidates for a breast lift. If you are in general good health, the mastopexy is a great option if:

  • You feel that your breasts sag
  • Your nipples point downward or fall below the breast crease
  • You have stretched breast skin
  • Your breast hang unevenly
  • Your areolas are enlarged/stretched

A breast lift does not increase the size of naturally small breasts. If you would like to increase your breast size, a breast augmentation may be a the better option for you. Breast implants may be included in a breast lift surgery, depending on your cosmetic goals.

The Breast Lift Procedure

There are four common surgical techniques used during a surgical breast lift. The technique chosen will depend on your current breast size and shape, areola size and position, degree of sagging, and skin elasticity.

Anchor Lift (Wise Pattern Mastopexy) – Used to correct extensive breast sagging. Three incisions are used; one around the areola, one vertically from the bottom of the areola, and one along the breast fold.

Donut Lift (Circumareolar Mastopexy) – Combined with breast augmentation to correct mild sagging. A circular incision around the areola is used.

Lollipop Lift (Vertical Mastopexy) –  Used to correct moderate sagging with two incisions, one around the edge of the areola and one vertically from the breast fold to the areola.

Crescent Lift –  Used in combination with breast augmentation to correct minimal sagging with one small incision that is made along the top of the areola.

After Dr. Reyna makes the appropriate surgical incisions, he will lift and reshape the breast tissue and skin. The nipple is repositioned and enlarged areolas are reduced by removing skin around the edges. To compensate for a loss of skin elasticity, excess skin will be removed.

Results and Recovery

Your results will be immediately visible and long-lasting. Your surgical incision lines will never completely fade, but they do fade dramatically over time, especially with proper care during recovery. Aging and gravity will continue to cause changes in your body. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will help you retain your results for a much longer time.

Swelling and bruising is common for two weeks after surgery. You will wear a surgical support bra and bandages to minimize swelling and promote healing. Most patients are able to return to work one week after surgery, but we recommend not bending over, lifting, or putting pressure on the chest for the first two weeks after surgery.
