About Breast Lift Surgery
If you're suffering from sagging breasts that have lost their perkiness due to weight loss, aging, or childbirth, then a breast lift procedure can help rejuvenate your figure and restore your bustline to a more supple position. Our board-certified Flowood and Jackson, MS plastic surgeons at The Face & Body Center can elevate the breast tissue to your desired placement and tighten the skin. This procedure is also very effective when paired with a breast augmentation or other enhancement surgeries to truly take your aesthetics to the next level. If you're ready to get your youthful breasts back, then schedule a consultation with one of our surgeons today. We can help you decide on the best procedures and treatment plan.
Breast Lift Ideal Candidates
During the initial consultation and after a thorough exam, we will help determine if a breast lift is the right surgery for you. Ideal candidates for this operation are women who:
- Have realistic ideas about what breast lift surgery can do
- Have breasts that sag or need a better shape
- Have breasts that hang, are stretched out, or are asymmetrical
- Have nipples that point downward or rest underneath the breasts
- Have lost skin elasticity with weight loss, pregnancy, or age
Breast Lift Reviews
"32 Year Old, 2 C-sections in Less Than 2 Years, Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift - Jackson, MS - Dr. Davidson and Rosemary (his nurse) are wonderful. I was so nervous during my initial consult I didn't ask any questions. After I left I came up with so many things I wish I had asked. I called back so many times!!! Rosemary always returned my calls quickly and was so sweet and helpful. Dr. Davidson did a great job for me. I chose him based on the recommendation of several friends who have used him. My obgyn even said he was the best. I had a yearly checkup with her before my surgery and I told her what I was getting done. She said several of her patients used him with great results."- E. / RealSelf / Jan 24, 2014

What to Expect with Breast Lift
Breast lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and is considered an outpatient surgery. There will be many factors to discuss prior to the surgery, including where the incision will be placed. There are three commonly practiced incision points made in lift surgery:
- Incision made along each areola
- Incision made along each areola, plus a vertical incision down to the crease under the breasts
- Incision made along each areola, plus a vertical incision down to the crease under the breast, and another horizontal line following the direction of the breast fold
The incision is usually chosen based on how invasive the lift needs to be. This procedure will produce scars; however, the plastic surgeon will do everything possible to make the scars less visible or easily concealed. We will also provide information on how to best care for your surgical wounds for more attractive results.
Breast Lift Anticipated Results
With breast lift surgery, the patient will see immediate results in the shape of the breasts, but the final result will be visible after the swelling from surgery subsides. The recovery will vary since many patients will have a breast lift in combination with another plastic surgery procedure, such as a breast augmentation, breast reduction, or tummy tuck. Patients will be urged to do light activities such as slowly moving around the room, or spending a few minutes standing within the first 48 hours to stimulate blood circulation. There should be no heavy lifting or strenuous activity involving the chest whatsoever. You can restart your normal activities within 2 – 3 weeks, but exercise should not be attempted for 6 – 8 weeks. There is a myth that women who have breast lift surgery never have to wear a bra again. This is not true as you will want to wear a bra to keep the breasts in the right position. The breast skin will continue to age regardless of this surgical intervention, but it should never be as severe as it was before breast lift surgery.
