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 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 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.
