What Is a Breast Lift | Breast Reduction?

A breast lift and breast reduction surgery are two different cosmetic procedures performed to enhance the appearance and size of the breasts.

Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgery that lifts sagging breasts and repositions them higher on the chest wall, resulting in a more youthful appearance and figure. The procedure can also reposition the nipples and areolas to a more forward-facing setting. This is achieved by strategically removing excess skin and moving the breast tissue into the desired shape and setting. 

Whereas a breast lift repositions the breasts, breast reduction reduces the size and weight of large, heavy breasts. By reducing the size, volume, and weight of undesirably large breasts, patients can feel more comfortable while also reducing potential health concerns associated with disproportionately large breasts. 

What Are Some Common Reasons For a Breast Lift or Breast Reduction?

The reasons patients consider a breast lift or breast reduction surgery tend to differ and fall into two categories. A breast lift is often for more aesthetic reasons, whereas a breast reduction might be more to address comfort as well as health and lifestyle concerns. 

Each patient’s journey is unique and understanding the reasons and goals for breast lift or breast reduction surgery is essential to helping each patient achieve their desired results

  • Aging: As a patient gets older, the breasts naturally lose elasticity and firmness, causing them to sag.
  • Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: During pregnancy and breastfeeding, breasts undergo significant changes in size and shape, which can result in sagging.
  • Weight Fluctuations: 
    Significant changes in weight can cause the breasts to stretch and lose firmness, leading to sagging.
  • Pain and Postural Issues:  Patients with large breasts may experience discomfort and pain in their shoulders, neck, and upper and lower back caused by the weight of their breasts. Breast reduction surgery can help address this concern.
  • Skin Irritation:The skin underneath large breasts may become irritated or develop rashes due to constant rubbing and sweating.
  • Difficulty Exercising: Patients with large breasts may find it difficult to engage in physical activities due to discomfort and limitations in movement.
  • Self-Consciousness: Some women may feel self-conscious about the size of their breasts and wish to have a more proportionate figure.
  • Clothing Fit: Women with large breasts may have difficulty finding clothes that fit properly.

Breast Lift Consultation with Dr. Abtahi

The most important step in successfully realizing the patient’s goals for either procedure is the consultation with Dr. Abtahi. During the consultation, patients will discuss their reasoning, desired outcome, medical history, and lifestyle, and Dr. Abtahi will evaluate their personal anatomy.

What Are the Basic Steps Involved in Dr. Abtahi’s Breast Lift and Breast Reduction?

While breast lift and breast reduction surgery differ in their ultimate goal and reasoning, Dr. Abtahi’s procedure for both treatments is quite similar.  Patients will undergo each of the following steps for both procedures:

Both procedures are performed using general anesthesia.

Dr. Abtahi makes an incision around the areola and down the breast to remove excess breast tissue and skin.

The remaining breast tissue is reshaped and lifted to create a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

If necessary, the nipple and areola may be repositioned to a more natural location on the breast.

The remaining skin is pulled together and sutured to create a firmer, lifted appearance.

What Should I Expect During Recovery?

After surgery, the patient will be closely monitored as they awake from anesthesia. Dr. Abtahi will provide thorough post-operative details and answer any questions before the patient returns home to begin their recovery.

How Do I Choose the Right Breast Lift and Breast Reduction Surgeon?

Breast lift and breast reduction surgeries are major life decisions, and choosing the right surgeon is essential to accomplishing the results that patients desire. While cost is certainly a factor to take into account, selecting a breast lift or breast reduction surgeon should be so much more than just a financial decision. 

Dr. Abtahi recommends consulting with several surgeons before committing to one so that patients understand the different options available to them. Factors to consider about different surgeons include:

  • Certification and Affiliation: Is the surgeon board-certified? Does the surgeon have other affiliations with research laboratories or universities? Do they contribute to medical research in the field?
  • Specialization: Different plastic surgeons have more experience and training in certain procedures than others. Patients should select a surgeon who specializes in and has extensive experience in performing breast lift or breast reduction surgeries. 
  • Before and After Photos: These are a great way for patients to assess a surgeon’s work. We recommend comparing body types to find ones similar to the patient’s own body. This helps get a good idea of what to expect from the procedure. 
  • Personal Connection: Connecting and communicating with the surgeon is essential for patients to enjoy a stress-free, effective relationship that will lead to the best possible results from their procedure.
