Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

This is a procedure performed to lift the breast and nipple to a higher, more youthful position on the chest. The breasts may droop (ptosis) as a result of age, breast feeding or hereditary factors. A mastopexy or breast lift corrects this droopiness by removing the extra skin of the breast and gathering the breast tissues. The breast lift procedure takes about two hours and is performed under general anesthesia. You may need to have someone stay with you the night after your mastopexy and can usually resume your normal activities in 5-7 days. The cost of a breast lift includes the surgical facility fees, anesthesia fees, and all of your follow-up visits. Mastopexy may be performed with breast augmentation using breast implants at the same time for those patients needing both procedures (patients with small and droopy breasts). For costs of the combined breast lift and breast augmentation with breast implants, please call our offices.
