Breast lifting, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to lift and firm breasts that have lost their firmness and natural position. This procedure can help women regain a more youthful and firm appearance of their breasts, and can also improve their self-confidence.

Breast lifting (also referred to as breast ptosis) is an operation that is performed to correct sagging breasts. It is intended for women who, after one or more pregnancies, following breastfeeding or after significant weight loss, have seen their breasts sag and lose their volume.

    Goals of Breast Lifting

    Breast lifting is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at lifting sagging breasts and giving them an aesthetic shape and support. The areolas will no longer point downwards and the "saggy" appearance that the skin of the breasts can have will be removed.

    The surgical procedure for breast ptosis

    The breast lift or breast reduction involves removing excess glandular tissue. A volume in harmony with the silhouette and according to the patient's wishes is preserved. This residual glandular volume is lifted, concentrated, and reshaped. It is then necessary to adapt the skin envelope, which involves removing the excess skin to ensure good support and a good shape to the new breasts. The edges of the skin thus cut are then sutured.

    The scars are in the shape of an inverted T: one around the nipple, a vertical scar, and a horizontal one in the submammary fold. They begin to fade between four and six months.

    The operation lasts about 1h30, under general anesthesia. Absorbable sutures that dissolve on their own are placed. An appropriate dressing is applied for a few days.

    The scars often take the shape of an inverted T with three components:

    • Peri-areolar around the perimeter of the areola between the brown skin and the white skin
    • Vertical between the lower pole of the areola and the submammary fold
    • Horizontal, concealed in the submammary fold.

    The length of the horizontal scar is proportional to the extent of breast hypertrophy and ptosis. Sometimes, especially when breast hypertrophy and ptosis are moderate, a so-called "vertical" method can be performed which allows eliminating the transverse scar in the submammary fold and reducing the scar to its peri-areolar and vertical components.

  • In which cases is a breast lift applied?

    The breast lift is aimed at women who have sagging breasts or whose areola is too low. This sagging of the breasts can be related to pregnancy, aging, or weight fluctuation. It is often associated with the placement of implants (breast augmentation).

    What type of anesthesia is used for a breast lift?

    Breast lift surgeries are systematically performed under general anesthesia.


    The breast lift or breast reduction surgery typically lasts about 3 hours, depending on the case. A hospital stay of 2 to 3 days is usually necessary.

  • Breast Lift Results

    It takes about 3-6 months to see the final result. Scars begin to fade after 6 months. More significant physical activity is possible after 4 weeks, lifting heavy objects after 6 weeks. Sauna, solarium, steam room, and direct sun exposure should be avoided for 2 months after surgery.

    The result of the breast lift or reduction can be judged after one year. The chest most often has a harmonious, symmetrical, and natural shape. Beyond the local improvement, this intervention generally has a favorable impact on weight balance, sports practice, clothing possibilities, and psychological state. It is important to have the patience to wait for the necessary time for the scars to fade and to maintain good surveillance during this period. The operated breast remains natural and sensitive, particularly to hormonal variations.

  • Convalescence

    Postoperative recovery is generally not very painful, requiring only simple painkillers. Swelling (edema) and bruising (bruises) of the breasts as well as discomfort when lifting the arms are commonly observed. The first dressing is removed after 48 hours and replaced by a lighter dressing, creating a sort of custom-made elastic bustier. After 3-4 days, you will feel better, with less pain and swelling. You should rest during the first week and you will need to limit your activity, including lifting heavy objects for 2 weeks. No physical activity that requires significant effort for 1 to 2 months. Wearing a special bra will be recommended for 1 month.

    Mastopexy without Implant Procedure

    This procedure involves removing excess tissue, preserving a volume in harmony with the patient's silhouette, and reshaping this residual volume. The adaptation of the skin envelope requires the removal of excess skin to ensure good support and a beautiful contour to the new breasts. The incisions are then carefully sutured.


    The scars often take the form of an inverted T, with a periareolar component, a vertical one, and a horizontal one hidden in the submammary fold. The length of the horizontal scar depends on the extent of hypertrophy and ptosis. In some cases of moderate ptosis, a vertical method can be used to eliminate the transverse scar and limit the scars to their periareolar and vertical components.

    Definition and Explanations on the Surgery

    Breast lifting with implants, also known as mastopexy with breast augmentation, is a sophisticated surgical procedure that combines two techniques: breast lifting and the insertion of implants. This dual procedure aims to remove excess skin and reshape sagging breasts, while increasing their volume and fullness through the addition of implants. It represents a comprehensive solution for women looking to improve both the shape and size of their breasts, often following changes due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, or aging.

  • Diagnosis

    Breast lifting with implants is generally considered in the following cases:

    Breast ptosis: When the breasts are sagging and have lost their firmness due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, significant weight loss, or aging, a breast lift can be performed to raise and firm up the breasts.

    Loss of breast volume: If a woman wishes to increase the volume of her breasts in addition to lifting them, the insertion of breast implants can be combined with the lift to achieve more satisfying results.

    Breast asymmetry: When the breasts present a significant difference in size or shape, breast lifting with implants can help correct this asymmetry and achieve a more balanced appearance of the breasts.

    Breast reconstruction: In the context of breast reconstruction after mastectomy or to correct congenital breast malformations, breast lifting with implants can be used to restore the shape and volume of the breasts.

  • Lifespan of Breast Implants

    The lifespan of breast implants generally varies between 10 and 15 years, although many factors can influence their longevity. It is important to note that implants are not considered permanent devices. Over time, changes such as weight loss, pregnancy, or the natural aging of the body can affect the appearance of the breasts with implants. Moreover, the risks of complications, such as rupture or capsular contracture, can increase over time, sometimes necessitating the replacement or removal of the implants. Regular follow-up visits with your plastic surgeon are essential to monitor the condition of the implants and ensure long-term health and safety.

  • Results

    Once the bruising and swelling have subsided, the results of the breast lift with implants begin to reveal themselves. The breasts are firmer, better shaped, and have a more youthful appearance. The breast implants add volume, creating a more balanced and feminine silhouette. Women often regain increased self-confidence and satisfaction with their new appearance.

    Long-term Maintenance

    To maintain the results in the long term, it is important to take care of your lifted breasts with implants. This includes wearing an appropriate supportive bra, avoiding intense physical activities that could affect the breasts, and regular follow-up with the surgeon to ensure that the implants are in good condition and that there are no complications. It is also essential to perform regular self-examinations to detect any abnormalities.

  • Convalescence

    After the procedure, it is normal to experience some discomfort, bruising, and swelling in the breasts. The surgeon will likely recommend wearing a compression bra for a few weeks to support the breasts and promote optimal healing. It is essential to follow the postoperative instructions provided by the surgeon, which may include medications to relieve pain, limited activities during the recovery period, and regular follow-up appointments.
