Cosmetic breast lift surgery, also known as a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to raise sagging breasts to their more youthful and appropriate anatomical position on the chest wall. Additionally, a breast lift performed by Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile will enhance the aesthetic shape of the breasts, enhance fullness while also raising the position of the nipples and reduce the areola’s (the darker pigmented skin around the nipple) size when necessary.
Factors such as pregnancy, nursing, change in weight (gain or loss), aging, and gravity can produce changes in the appearance of a woman’s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and begin to sag.
If, in addition to sagging, the breasts are small or have lost volume after pregnancy, breast implants can be inserted in conjunction with a breast lift. This can enhance both the shape and size of the breast.
There are a variety of different surgical techniques used for the reshaping and lifting of the female breasts. The procedure that will work best for you will be decided following your consultation with Dr. Stile at Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV. During this visit, a careful exam of your breasts will be performed. The degree of sagging will help determine which procedure will work best in helping achieve your desired result.
Mastopexy surgery is performed under general anesthesia and is considered outpatient surgery. There will be many factors to discuss prior to the surgery, including where the incisions will be placed. The three most commonly used breast lift techniques employ the following incisions:
The technique and their corresponding incisions are chosen based on how extensive the lift needs to be. This procedure will produce surgery scars, however, Dr. Stile will do everything possible to make the scars less visible or easily concealed. We will also provide information on how to best care for your surgical wounds that may show more attractive results.

*Individual Results May Vary
During the initial consultation and after a thorough exam, we will help determine if mastopexy is right for you. Ideal candidates for this operation are women who:
With breast lift surgery, the patient will see immediate improvement in the shape and position of her breasts. The final results may be appreciated after all the swelling from surgery subsides and scars mature. They’ll enjoy perkier, more youthful-looking breasts and feel more confident in and out of clothing – with or without a bra.
The recovery will vary since many patients will have a breast lift in combination with another plastic surgery procedure, such as breast augmentation, breast reduction, or tummy tuck.
Breast Lift surgery takes approximately 3 hours. After surgery, patients can expect to feel some soreness in their breasts and chest. They will be given post-surgical care instructions and pain medication will be prescribed. Each Mastopexy patient will leave in a sports bra and clean surgical dressings. There may be some bruising and swelling for about 1 – 3 weeks.
It is recommended that patients only participate in very light activity for the first 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, patients may advance activity but must avoid heavy lifting and resistance training. Most patients experience a full recovery between weeks 4 and 8, and may resume full activity and exercise.
✭ There is a commonly held belief that women who have breast lift surgery never have to wear a bra again. This is not true, as women will want to wear a bra most of the time to keep their results looking great. The breast skin will continue to age regardless of this surgical intervention, but it should never be as severe as it was before breast lift surgery.
