What to Expect After a Breast Lift?


Share This Post

Over time your breasts can change in shape and size due to factors such as pregnancy, weight changes, and aging. Firm and perky breasts can help you feel confident and youthful, which is why we are proud to offer personalized breast lifts!

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that lifts the breasts and nipples to a more youthful, flattering position. Sagging breasts are a common concern and are often a result of changes in weight, pregnancy, nursing, aging, and gravity. Depending on the extent of the procedure needed, we will recommend one of the following incision methods:

  • Doughnut: incisions made along each areola
  • Loli-pop: incisions made along each areola, along with a vertical incision 
  • Anchor: incisions made along each areola, with a vertical incision as well as a horizontal incision

During your consultation, Dr. Stile will discuss what you want to accomplish for treatment and let you know what results you can expect from your procedure. With a breast lift, Dr. Stile will reshape and reposition the breasts and nipples if necessary to suit your aesthetic goals.

What to Expect After a Breast Lift?

Rest and recovery are essential to ensuring optimal results after a breast lift. After a breast lift, you may experience some swelling and bruising, which is normal and should fade within two weeks. After your procedure, you will need to wear a surgical support bra to support your breasts and help reduce swelling. You may also need to have drainage tubes placed in the treatment site for a short time to ensure optimal healing.

It is important to avoid bending down or lifting heavy objects, as well as strenuous exercise or activity. You should also ensure you protect your breasts and incisions from the sun, as UV light can make scarring more visible.

What Results Can I Expect From a Breast Lift?

You can achieve perkier, lifted breasts with a personalized breast lift at Stile Aesthetics. After treatment, you can expect more symmetrical breasts and nipples. Dr. Stile ensures that scarring is minimal and well hidden even when wearing a bikini. Many of our patients report that they fool a boost in confidence after their procedure! 


How Long Does a Breast Lift Last?

A breast lift is a long-lasting method for attaining perkier breasts. Aging and gravity will impact the shape of your breasts over time. Maintaining a consistent weight and an active lifestyle can help preserve your results. 

Am I a Candidate for a Breast Lift?

A breast lift may be right for you if you have sagging breasts, stretched areolas, uneven breasts, or other similar cosmetic concerns. You may not be a candidate for a breast lift if you are breastfeeding or pregnant. If you plan on getting pregnant in the future, you may wish to wait to have a breast lift. If you have any questions about your candidacy for a breast lift, you can book an in-person consultation with us at Stile Aesthetics!
