Breast Lift

Over time, breasts can lose their perkiness and suppleness because of gravity, weight fluctuations, or changes associated with pregnancy, breastfeeding, and age. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Josh Olson can give drooping breasts a fuller, more youthful shape and help you restore your femininity and confidence with mastopexy, often called a breast lift, at his location in Gilbert, AZ.

Allow Dr. Olson to make your goal of more youthful and attractive breasts a reality with a breast lift. Call our office in Gilbert at (480) 466-7355, or request a consultation online. Women visit him for breast enhancement procedures from Chandler, Mesa, Scottsdale, and throughout the East Valley.

Reasons for Breast Lift

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

Can Breast Lift Surgery Be Combined With Other Procedures?

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.

Your Breast Lift Choices

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

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.

How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost in Scottsdale and Phoenix?

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. The consultation fee is $100 for first-time breast enhancement patients and $250 for returning patients. If the patient decides to move forward and have Dr. Olson perform the surgery, the consultation fee will be applied to the surgical fee.

How Long Does It Take To Recover From a Breast Lift?

Most breast lift patients are ready to 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.

When Will I See My Final Breast Lift Results?

Final results will develop after several months and scars will fade over time. Your breasts will look more uplifted and feel firmer, and your nipples will have a more proportioned size and youthful position.
