All About Breast Lift

Also known as “Mastopexy,” this surgical procedure is ideal for correcting sagging, drooping breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning the nipple to a “perkier” placement. Most popular amongst women who have breastfed children or those that have undergone significant weight loss. Those also looking to restore lost volume choose to get implants with their lift.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a breast lift cost?

Starting Price:
$8,900

The average cost of a breast lift can vary widely, depending on the complexity of your procedure. Your breasts’ degree of sagging and excess skin can make your procedure more or less complex, which will impact how long it takes to perform, and the cost thereof.

At your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will prescribe the perfect treatment plan and provide you with an estimate to achieve your aesthetic goals.

We also offer up to 24-month financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

How long does it take to recover from Breast Lift surgery?

Downtime after breast lift surgery is typically 5 – 7 days. If your work requires lifting anything over 10 pounds, you may need to take up to a month off while you heal. Your breasts will likely be bruised and swollen for the first few weeks, with swelling peaking around day three, and they’ll probably feel heavy and tight.

We suggest sleeping on your back or side, avoiding lifting heavy objects, and following Doctor recommendations for when you can go back to your normal routine. You should be able to have sex at about six weeks after surgery, but some people need longer to heal.

At your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will discuss the procedure outlining recovery, healing, and realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.

How do I know if I need a breast lift?

The need for a lift is determined by a few factors:

1) your desired breast size
2) the elasticity of your skin
3) the current position of your nipple compared to your breast crease

At your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will qualify you for the procedure, outlining the recovery and healing process along with realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.

Will Insurance Cover Breast Lift surgery?

Breast lifts are considered cosmetic surgery, so it’s not covered by insurance.

However, if you have a documented medical condition, such as a congenital breast deformity, or are getting the breast lift as part of a breast reduction to relieve symptomatic large breasts, exceptions may be made.

Talk with your insurance company about what kind of documentation you’d need to provide to show that the procedure is addressing medically necessary issues.

If cost is of concern, we offer financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

When Will I See Breast Lift Results?

After your breast lift surgery, you’ll notice results immediately (along with swelling and bruising) however swelling will continue through the healing process:

Three Month Mark:
75% of the final results will be noticeable

Six Month Mark:
90% of final results will be noticeable

One Year Mark:
100% results noticeable

At your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will discuss the procedure, outlining the recovery and healing process along with realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.

What Do I Need To Know?

There are three types of breast lift procedures our Orange County cosmetic surgeons use. The technique that’s right for you will depend on such factors as your breast size and the amount of droopiness you have.

  • Mastopexy or Full Breast Lift is the most invasive lift procedure and is typically performed on women with much larger breasts, a significant amount of drooping and whose nipple placement has dropped dramatically due to pregnancy or weight loss.
  • Benelli or “Donut” Lift is a less invasive modified approach, and an option for those women who have less sagging skin but have experienced nipple position dropping and as a result, their breasts are not as perky. The incision is around the areola only and the nipple is positioned up, slightly higher, for a more youthful breast appearance.
  • Crescent Lift is the least invasive of the breast lift procedures. This modified lift is typically for younger women or those with smaller breasts and minimal sagging. It involves only a small, crescent shaped incision, usually above the areola. The surgeon is able to take out a small piece of skin above the nipple and simply perk the nipple up slightly. This same type of incision is the most common choice for women having only breast enlargement surgery who do not require any type of lift.

NOTE: Through modified versions of a breast lift, the surgeon is more limited to the amount of lift he or she can accomplish. Your surgeon will examine the size and position of your breasts in order to recommend which type of lift procedure will provide you with the best possible results.

How long will Breast Lift results last?

The results of a breast lift last roughly 10 – 15 years, though your breasts will continue to naturally age and change with weight fluctuation. They may begin to sag in late middle age as your skin becomes less firm, which is why many patients choose breast revision surgery after the ten-year mark.

At your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will discuss the procedure, outlining the recovery and healing process along with realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.

What Will My Scars Look Like After a Breast Lift?

You’ll have scars from the incisions – and the placement and shape of the scarring are dependent on the type of lift performed. Rest assured, these scars should fade over a year or two, becoming less noticeable.

CosmetiCare offers comprehensive scar treatment solutions. During your consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, they’ll discuss the recovery and healing process and how to minimize scarring post-procedure.

Can I Go Braless After a Breast Lift?

It’s typical for breast lift patients to wear a support bra for several months after surgery.

However, the exact amount of time you’ll need to wear a support bra will vary based on your procedure and the amount of tissue removed.

At your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will discuss the procedure, outlining the recovery and healing process along with realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.

Can You Still Breastfeed After a Breast Lift?

In most Breast Lift techniques, sensation and breast ductal tissue is preserved, so the ability to breastfeed should remain intact. However, recent research* shows that any breast surgery – specifically the incision around the nipple – can potentially damage milk ducts, so there is a risk of insufficient milk production.

How Will I Look & Feel Afterwards?
  • Immediately following surgery your breasts will be wrapped and fitted with a sports bra that you will wear for several days.
  • Your breasts may be bruised, swollen and uncomfortable for the first few days. Any discomfort or soreness can be controlled with medication.
  • You may experience some numbness around your nipples and breast skin temporarily. Once your swelling begins to subside, feeling should return.
