Live Life to Its Fullest
A woman’s breast can change over time, often losing firmness and youthful shape or projection. Breast laxity is usually caused by pregnancies, nursing, weight fluctuation, gravity, aging, hereditary makeup, or even prior breast surgeries. Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) addresses these concerns to give your breasts a more elevated and perky appearance. Our dedicated, board-certified plastic surgical team at Hass Plastic Surgery offers breast lift surgery for women in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, Palm Beach, Wellington, and the surrounding areas of Florida. Schedule your consultation today.
Get the Lift You Deserve
A mastopexy, whether minimal with a crescent lift or more extensive, as with the lollipop or standard style lift, is designed to raise the breasts by removing excess skin. The goal is to reshape the breast to be more youthful, sometimes making the areolas smaller and then tightening the surrounding breast skin to support and re-contour your new breast shape. When your surgeon performs the breast lift procedure, the breast tissues are elevated into a more youthful position. In some cases, your breasts can be smaller if you desire a breast reduction. For those who want a fuller look to the top of their breasts, especially for those who have lost breast volume, a mastopexy might also be performed with a breast augmentation. All of these breast lift options are discussed at your cosmetic consultation in Palm Beach Gardens or Wellington.
Whatever breast lift (or mastopexy) you are a candidate for, the ultimate goal is to have more beautiful breasts. Let our team of surgeons help you achieve your new look with the right cosmetic breast surgery.
A crescent lift may be recommended when a patient needs a minor nipple lift when doing a breast augmentation. A short procedure added to their breast augmentation surgery will give the nipples a more even or lifted look. An ellipse of skin is removed from the top part of the nipple, leaving a minimal scar that is generally not noticeable once healing is complete.
The final look gives the breast a very youthful and shapely appearance, further enhancing the breast implant placement. Because patients often have one breast larger than the other, this lift can often complement breast augmentation with much less scarring than a more traditional breast lift.
This type of lift can be performed with or without implants to help enhance a more youthful breast shape. Excess skin is removed through an incision around the areola and down the middle of the breast. When done in conjunction with a breast augmentation, this type of lift gives the breast a gentle lift while also removing some excess skin.
Although there are more incisions than the crescent lift, most patients find the scars heal beautifully and are not noticeable over time. Keep in mind that, at Hass Plastic Surgery, we can provide solutions to help scars diminish, so they become virtually invisible. Scar care is always part of our follow-up with any surgery.
This type of lift is more traditional and gives patients more lift, especially if they have excess skin and heavier sagging in their breasts. Although the incisions are also around the areola and down the middle of the breast, there is also an incision in the fold of the breast to remove excess skin, therefore providing a more dynamic lift to the breast.
Patients can include a breast augmentation simultaneously if their desire is a fuller upper breast; however, in many cases, patients find that this lift decreases the sagginess and droop, giving a shapely lift. Incisions for this lift are like those of a breast reduction surgery, yet significant breast tissue is re-contoured rather than removed to provide the breast with a more youthful look.
Get The Look You Always Wanted
Do you have sagging, tired breasts? You may be a good candidate for breast lift surgery. A breast lift is likely necessary if the nipples point downward, or you’ve lost volume.

The first important step in planning for cosmetic surgery is to gather information. A consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons is the most direct way to learn the basics, such as which procedure will give you your desired results, how much recovery time is needed, and the cost. Once you’ve decided on a surgical plan, the next important step is to plan ahead. Recovery times and post-operative limitations vary according to surgery and are essential in determining when you should have your procedures.
The most challenging part of planning is finding a period of time you can devote to recovery. Please don’t underestimate the importance of this. A low-stress recovery period is key to having an easy physical and mental experience!
Quitting smoking is not only helpful but critically important in anticipation of certain surgeries (i.e., face and neck lifts, tummy tucks, breast lifts, or reductions). Give yourself enough time to quit and allow the nicotine to clear your system. Have your blood pressure checked and treated, especially if it is higher than 130/85. Last but not least, stop all aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, vitamins, and supplements for at least two weeks before surgery to minimize bruising and bleeding.
Say Goodbye To Sagging Breasts
Your surgeon will review the various incision options with you prior to surgery. The degree of drooping and other variables such as breast size and shape might influence your approach. A typical breast lift procedure could include making an incision around the areola and then downward, finishing at the crease under the breast. This creates the shape of a lollipop or anchor.
The degree of sagging of the breast will be discussed to determine the best breast lift option for your goals. Breast tissue will be adjusted or removed once the incisions are done to accomplish the patient’s breast shape objectives. For example, the nipple and areola may be resized or placed higher on the breast. To provide a firmer look and feel, excess skin is removed. Breast lift surgery typically takes two to three hours, although it may take longer if you have additional procedures done simultaneously.
Your Most Beautiful Transformation
Your surgery is an outpatient procedure and allows you to recover in the comfort of your own home. For the next 24 to 48 hours, breast lift patients may suffer some discomfort, inflammation, and bruising. You need to wear a post-surgical support bra for the next six weeks to support and protect as your breasts heal. Patients may typically return to work four to five days later, but must refrain from vigorous exercise for a month. Your final shape and size may take two to three months. It is critical that you allow yourself the time to heal properly and adhere to all post-operative instructions for optimal results.
a perkier, lifted look
The results of your breast lift are apparent right away, but they will gradually improve as the swelling goes down and the scarring fades. You’ll notice a lift in your breasts and a perkier look after removing the bandages. It is vital to avoid significant weight gain to preserve your results. Your results should last up to 10 years.
