About Breast Lift Surgery
Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is designed to restore a more youthful appearance to a woman’s breasts. Over the years, the breasts can lose their shape and firmness due to pregnancy, nursing, loss of skin elasticity, and the natural process of atrophy of the breast tissue, or with weight loss. This may cause the breasts to sag and to lose their shape, appearing “deflated,” especially in the upper chest. In these cases, there is a discrepancy between the skin envelope of the breast, which is excessive, relative to the remaining volume of breast tissue. A breast lift is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape breasts, slowing or reversing the effects of aging and gravity. This procedure can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple, which often becomes wider after breastfeeding. If needed, along with the breast lift, a breast implant can also be placed to add or restore the necessary volume to the breast. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Talal Munasifi is pleased to offer this surgery at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center in Arlington, VA.

Mastopexy is most commonly performed in an outpatient facility setting. Breast lifts can be performed under local or general anesthesia, so that there is no pain or discomfort during the procedure. The surgery may take between 2 – 3 hours. A common approach involves an incision along the natural contour of the fold beneath the breast where excess skin will be removed. The nipple and areola are then re-positioned higher on the breast mound. The skin surrounding the areola is brought together to reshape the breast, with stitches around the areola and the lower breast area.
What To Expect
After surgery, you will be placed in a soft compression wrap around the chest and breasts, for 24 – 48 hours, then you will switch to a jog bra. You must avoid heavy lifting and vigorous exercise for four weeks. The post-surgical swelling will diminish within 3 – 5 days. Dr. Munasifi or a member of his team will provide detailed, at-home incision care instructions to help your healing process. Results following a surgical breast lift are most noticeable after several months as your newly shaped breasts take their new position on your chest wall. The breasts will look and feel natural, and you will feel younger, prettier, and in sync with your frame.
