Breast Lift

Breast drooping can significantly impact the appearance of your breasts, and it is almost impossible to prevent it from occurring. Sagging breasts occur when the breast tissue becomes weak, which can be the result of pregnancy, weight loss, or aging. Women with breast ptosis may feel that they appear aged and lack confidence in their body. Breast lift surgery is designed to restore perkiness, fullness, and shape to sagging breasts.

Who Can Benefit?

Your breasts go through a number of changes during pregnancy. After one or more children, you may find that your breasts lack the youthful look and shape they once had. Many women struggle to feel confident in their appearance after having children, and this is largely due to their poor breast appearance. A breast lift can restore your pre-pregnancy breasts.

What Do You Desire?


A breast lift uses internal sutures to lift and support the breast tissue. The goal of a breast lift is to reduce sagging, which is achieved by repositioning the breast tissue so it sits above the inframammary line. This process creates breasts that sit higher on the chest, have a perkier projection, and have a firmer feel and appearance.

Addressing Your Concerns

  • Recovery

    After the procedure, the breasts will be wrapped in bandages and a compression garment. Some swelling and bruising will most likely be apparent, and any pain can be controlled with prescribed medication. Most patients are able to return to work within one week, resume light physical activities after two weeks, and perform more strenuous exercises after six weeks. The improved appearance of the breasts will be immediately visible after surgery, although some swelling may alter your initial breast appearance.

  • Scars

    Breast lift surgery can potentially result in some visible scarring. Each patient’s healing process plays a key role in whether they will develop scars following their surgery. The extent of your incisions will also play a role. Most incisions are limited to around the areola or along the lower breast crease.

  • Cost

    The cost of breast lift surgery will vary depending on a variety of factors, including the technique, surgical facility costs, anesthesia fees, and prescriptions for medication. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the average cost of a breast lift in 2015 was $4,634.

  • Pain

    After the procedure, you will likely experience some discomfort, pain, and stiffness. Dr. Messa will prescribe pain medication to alleviate any discomfort and antibiotics to prevent infection.
