Breast Lift Benefits

This procedure is technically called mastopexy, corrects sagging (ptosis) and a loss of breast volume by surgically removing lax skin, while repositioning the nipple and areola higher on the breast. The result is:

  • More youthful breast shape
  • Firmer, natural-looking breasts
  • Elevated, shapelier breasts
  • Better proportioned body

Your Breast Lift Consultation

At your consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your goals with Dr. Jeffrey Wagner. Respected by peers and patients, Dr. Wagner is consistently named among The Best Doctors in America, America’s Top Surgeons, and America’s Top Plastic Surgeons.

Dr. Wagner will also detail the various surgical techniques and options. In most instances, incisions are made around the areola. In some cases, additional incisions may be required in the breast crease or vertically down from the areola to the breast crease. He will also make a recommendation based on his extensive experience, your skin’s laxity, your anatomy, and your goals. This procedure can be performed on either one or both breasts. Additionally, many women enhance their mastopexy with another popular body contouring procedure such as tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) or tumescent liposuction.

During your consultation, Dr. Wagner will discuss everything you’ll need to know to make an educated decision regarding this procedure, including where your breast surgery is likely to be performed, incision size and locations, as well as scarring, recovery, and risks such as the possibility of changes in breast sensation.

Combined Breast Augmentation & Lift

For those women also concerned with breast volume, breast augmentation can complement a lift. Combining mastopexy and breast augmentation is a highly technical procedure that should be performed only by a surgeon who has experience with this type of surgery.

Breast Lift Recovery

The incisions will be closed and bandaged immediately following the completion of your surgery in Indianapolis. There will be some bruising and swelling around the area that will subside over time. Medication can help you manage any discomfort or pain you may experience.

Breast Lift FAQs

What Are the Different Techniques Used in Breast Lift Surgery, and How Are They Selected?
Breast lift involves several techniques, chosen based on the patient’s anatomy, desired outcomes, and extent of correction needed. Common methods include the “Anchor” lift, suitable for significant sagging, the “Lollipop” lift for moderate lifts, and the “Donut” lift for minimal sagging, using a periareolar incision.

Dr. Wagner evaluates factors like breast size, shape, and the degree of sagging to select the most appropriate technique so that patients get natural-looking results.

Can a Breast Lift Improve Symmetry Between Breasts?
Yes, a breast lift can enhance symmetry between breasts. Asymmetry is common and can be addressed during a mastopexy by repositioning the nipple and areola and reshaping the breast tissue. Dr. Wagner focuses on achieving a balanced appearance, which may involve different techniques on each breast. This tailored approach helps in achieving more symmetrical and proportionate breasts.
What Is the Recovery Process Like After a Breast Lift, and What Are the Key Post-Operative Care Tips?
Our patients usually recover from breast lift surgery after a few weeks on average, but specific timelines do vary from patient to patient. Dr. Wagner recommends wearing a support bra, managing pain with prescribed medication, and avoiding heavy lifting for a few days. He will also provide other key post-operative care tips after your procedure.
What Factors Should Someone Consider When Deciding Between a Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation?
If a patient is seeking to enhance their breast size and fullness, they should choose augmentation. On the other hand, a breast lift is ideal for addressing sagging and improving breast position without altering size. Patients consult with Dr. Wagner so that they can understand their goals and the procedure that best suits their needs.
How Do Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Affect the Results of a Breast Lift?
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can impact the results of a breast lift, potentially leading to changes in breast size and shape. Dr. Wagner advises that while mastopexy results are long-lasting, these changes may alter the aesthetic outcomes. For patients planning future pregnancies, it may be beneficial to delay the surgery to maintain the results longer.
Can a Breast Lift Be Reversed or Modified?
While a breast lift provides enduring results, it’s challenging to reverse. However, modifications are possible. Patients looking for adjustments or experiencing changes in breast size or shape over time, Dr. Wagner can perform additional procedures to refine the results, ensuring patient satisfaction with their appearance.
