Sagging of the breasts, or ptosis, occurs when the nipple and breast shift downward below the line where the breast meets the chest, called the inframammary fold. Women who have gone through pregnancy and breastfeeding sometimes experience this sag, and they often develop enlarged nipples, as well. Women choose this procedure for one or more of the following reasons:
Removing excess skin responsible for sagging breasts
Restoring nipples and breasts to a more youthful position
Improving breast shape
Reducing the size of the areola
Enhancing femininity and self-image
A breast lift is also often a key component of a mommy makeover, a procedure that combines breast and body contouring options to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy figure.
Complete the Look
Enhancing a single aspect of your appearance can inspire you to address other areas you wish to improve. Ask Dr. Olson about combining your treatment for a more complete and stunning transformation.
During your consultation, you will discuss several important considerations, such as your goals, expectations, and surgical options. Many women also have a breast augmentation at the same time to increase breast size. Dr. Olson uses several techniques to lift sagging breasts.
Full Mastopexy (Inverted T or Anchor Lift)
A typical full breast lift involves 3 incisions that create an upside-down “T” or anchor shape. In this style of procedure, the incisions are made:
Around the areola
Down from the bottom of the areola to the inframammary fold (IMF)
Horizontally along the IMF
This method provides the most dramatic improvement for excessively saggy breasts.
Circumvertical Mastopexy (Lollipop Lift)
This technique is often appropriate for women with moderate to more severe breast ptosis. It uses 2 incisions that result in a lollipop shape:
Around the areola
Down from the bottom of the areola to the IMF
Meet Dr. Josh Olson
Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
As a board-certified plastic surgeon in Gilbert, AZ, Dr. Josh Olson uses his world-class cosmetic plastic surgery training to meet all the aesthetic needs of the women and men he serves. What can he do for you?
Circumareolar Mastopexy (Benelli, Concentric, or Doughnut Lift)
In this method, a doughnut-shaped segment of tissue is removed from around the areola. The remaining tissue is drawn in, tightening and lifting the breast. To avoid flattening the breast, Dr. Olson uses this method only if he is also performing a breast augmentation.
Periareolar Mastopexy (Crescent Lift)
This is the least invasive method. It involves the removal of a crescent-shaped portion of tissue above the areola. The nipple is moved to a higher position, which elevates the entire breast.
Both the circumareolar and periareolar lifts are better suited for women with mild ptosis.
Cost of a Breast Lift
The price of breast lift surgery varies, based in part on the extent of the procedure and the surgical techniques used. If you’re comparing prices between different plastic surgery practices, it’s important to remember that other factors — including the training and experience of the surgeon, the location of the practice, and whether certain fees are included in the quoted price — will affect the final cost.
Dr. Olson’s breast lift patients typically pay between $5,500 and $7,000. If a patient wants breast implants inserted during the lift, the price increases. Keep in mind that cost shouldn’t be the primary reason to choose a surgeon; experience matters much more. Many patients searching Phoenix for a specialist end up choosing to travel to Gilbert to have Dr. Olson perform their breast lifts after consulting with him.
Recovery & Results
Mastopexy is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia; someone will need to drive you home. Most patients may return to work after about a week. Strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks. Pain medication can help with discomfort during recovery. Bruising and swelling will subside over the following weeks.
Final results will appear after several months, and scars will fade over time. Your breasts will look more uplifted and feel firmer, and your nipples will have better size and position.
