Breast Lift – Mastopexy Surgery in Paramus at Art Plastic Surgery

Pregnancy, weight loss, and normal aging can substantially change the shape of the breasts. Over time, the breasts often lose their roundness and firmness, becoming flat and oblong in appearance. This issue is so common that most women say they want to change the shape, and not the size, of their breasts. Breast lift surgery, formally known as mastopexy, can help these patients achieve their goal. This procedure is designed to elevate and contour the breasts and areolas, restoring their youthful fullness.

About Breast Lift Surgery

Breast drooping is caused by the presence of excess skin. When the breasts expand, as they do with weight gain or pregnancy, the skin stretches to accommodate. Unfortunately, when the breasts return to their normal size, the skin usually can’t bounce back to its previous shape. As a result, tissue looks deflated.  

During breast lift surgery, excess skin is removed and the breasts are raised on the chest wall. After complete healing, the skin will conform to the patient’s breast tissue, making the breasts look round, full, and perky. Breast lift surgery can also be used to make the areolas smaller and to make the breasts symmetrical. Unlike breast augmentation, this procedure will not make the breasts larger.

Mastopexy can be incorporated into a mommy makeover, or it can be performed as a standalone procedure. This treatment is also highly versatile; board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Luis A. Zapiach, Dr. John T. Cozzone, and Dr. Pedro Vieira are experienced in performing several breast lift techniques, each optimized to treat a different grade of ptosis (sagging).

Breast Lift FAQ

The ideal breast lift candidate is a healthy adult who doesn’t smoke and who is close to their ideal weight. Your breast lift will be most effective if you wait until you’re done losing weight and having children before you have this procedure. Further weight loss and future pregnancies have the potential to alter the results of mastopexy. However, if you would like to have more children, we can surgically revise your breast lift after you’re done breastfeeding.

Yes, absolutely. Dr. Cozzone, Dr. Zapiach, and Dr. Vieira are skilled in performing a wide range of breast revision surgeries. If your breasts have been altered by past augmentation or mastopexy and you’re not happy with their current appearance, we can restore their contours.

Yes. If you’ve lost breast volume after breastfeeding or menopause, our surgeons can restore that volume with implants while lifting your breasts.

Most patients need to take one week off work after having a crescent or donut lift. Two weeks of rest may be required after having a vertical or anchor lift. Some swelling and bruising are normal after having this procedure, but we’ll give you pain medication to keep discomfort at bay. You’ll also be given a special supportive bra to wear for about one month after your surgery.

Most patients need to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for four to six weeks after having a breast lift. Our doctors will let you know when you’re ready to resume all your normal activities.
