Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) removes excess skin and tightens loose tissues to restore youthful, attractive breasts. It is an ideal procedure to rejuvenate the look and feel of the breasts for women who have experienced aging, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations. This procedure not only restores more youthful breasts, but it also helps women gain a positive self-image and increase their confidence.
The breast tissues are reshaped into more attractive contours to eliminate sagging, pendulous breasts. After breast lift surgery, you won’t have to be embarrassed by elongated, misshapen breasts.
As flabby, stretched tissues are removed and the remaining tissues are tightened, the breasts will regain the natural firmness of their youth.
Nipples and areolas that point downward can be repositioned to a more upward projection along with the rest of the breast tissue for a more attractive silhouette.
As with all surgical procedures, there is a recovery process after breast lift surgery to ensure you heal properly and can fully enjoy your new and improved breasts.
A specialized surgical bra and bandages will be placed over the breasts to reduce swelling and bruising. It is important to get adequate rest during the first few days, and prescribed medication will reduce any discomfort that may exist. Our Recovery Protocol, which includes supplements, vitamins, and anti-bruising medications, will begin.
Most women have the stamina to return to work and resume their normal routine 4 to 7 days after surgery. However, patients should avoid strenuous physical activity and exercise at this time.
Results will be more apparent. Patients can begin to ease back into light physical activity once cleared by Dr. Chiu.
All residual swelling will have resolved, and final results will be apparent.

Dr. Chiu performs breast lift surgery with the patient under general anesthesia and supervised by a board-certified anesthesiologist to ensure the highest degree of patient safety.
As with many surgical procedures, some pain and discomfort is expected after breast lift surgery. However, prescribed medication and compression garments will drastically diminish the amount of discomfort that exists. The pain experienced from a breast lift procedure can range from sharp discomfort to dull soreness to a heavy pressure similar to weight laying on your chest.
Since breast lift surgery is an elective procedure, it is not usually covered by insurance providers. There are rare exceptions that may involve correction of a severe anatomical deformity or asymmetry. During your consultation, Dr. Chiu will determine whether insurance might finance your breast lift procedure.
The results from a breast lift are generally permanent unless an adverse reaction or complication develops. Of course, the breasts will continue to age naturally after the procedure. To maintain optimum results, patients should refrain from gaining significant weight and should wear the proper bras for support.
