Breast Lift

Most women experience some degree of breast sagging or drooping, whether it’s due to the natural aging process, significant weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or gravity. A breast lift, also called mastopexy, can resolve this issue for many women, achieving a look that is more youthful and perky. Portland Plastic Surgery Group performs breast lift in Portland, Oregon, with a personalized approach, customizing the procedure to each woman, and offering the option of a “short scar” technique.

To discuss your breast enhancement options with one of our board-certified or board-eligible plastic surgeons, request a consultation online or call our office at (503) 292-9200.

Breast Lift Benefits

Women choose breast lift surgery for a variety of reasons, which include:

  • Raising and tightening the breast
  • Creating a more youthful look
  • Reducing and reshaping the areola

Although a breast lift does improve breast shape and position, it does not restore lost volume. If lost volume is also a concern, breast lifts can be combined with breast augmentation. Because breast sagging and drooping are often associated with childbirth and breastfeeding, the procedure is also often combined with body contouring procedures — such as tummy tuck or liposuction — as part of a Mommy Makeover.

Breast Lift with Implants

For women with sagging breasts who have also lost volume in their breasts, we often recommend a breast lift with implants to restore lost volume and give a more youthful shape. During a breast lift surgery, the breast is reshaped, the nipples are repositioned, and asymmetry is addressed, so adding breast implants at the same time can help restore your breasts to their former appearance.

  • A breast lift with implants combination procedure is popular with women who have:
  • Lost breast tissue volume due to breastfeeding
  • Lost a significant amount of weight and experienced sagging and volume loss in their breasts
  • Have experienced sagging and loss of breast tissue due to aging

Combining a breast lift with breast implants enables your surgeon to tighten and lift the loose tissue as well as restore lost volume to enhance the results of a breast lift and help you look as good as before, or maybe even better!

Recovery from a breast lift with implants is similar to recovery from a breast lift, and your surgeon will provide instructions to follow to achieve the best possible results.

Breast Lift Techniques

There are several techniques for breast lifting, each with its advantages and drawbacks. In addition to more traditional methods, Portland Plastic Surgery Group offers a “short scar” technique. This procedure is popular among younger patients with less sagging, especially those who would like to minimize visible scars. Surgery generally lasts several hours and is performed under general anesthesia at an outpatient surgery center. Surgery lasts longer if a breast lift is combined with other procedures like liposuction.
