Mastopexy or Breast lift Surgery in Koramangala, Bangalore

Mastopexy, also called breast lift, is a plastic surgery procedure in which sagging breasts are lifted permanently. This procedure leaves your breasts looking firmer and rounder. To learn more, search for "breast lift surgery near me".

What do we need to know about a breast lift?

A breast lift is a procedure performed by a plastic surgeon to alter the shape and size of your breasts to give them a “raised” look. People with saggy breasts or nipples that point downward may opt for this procedure. While a breast lift does not really change the size of your breasts significantly, you can opt for it alongside breast augmentation or reduction to get the results you are looking for.

Why is a mastopexy done?

With age, your breasts might lose the elasticity and firmness it once had. You may consider undergoing a mastopexy if:

  • Your breasts have lost the shape and volume they once had.
  • Your nipples fall below your breast creases.
  • Your areolas have stretched out of proportion to your breasts.
  • One breast is lower than the other.

Some of the causes of saggy breasts are:

  • Pregnancy: When you are pregnant, your breasts get fuller and heavier. As a result, the ligaments that support your breast stretch out leading to saggy breasts after your breasts lose the fullness and heaviness post childbirth.
  • Change in weight: As you gain weight, your breasts may stretch out. When you lose weight, they tend to become saggy.

When do you need to see a doctor?

If you feel you need a breast lift, consult your doctor and weigh the pros and cons.

You can request an appointment at Apollo Spectra Hospitals, Koramangala, Bangalore.

What are the risks of a mastopexy?

Like most major surgeries, a mastopexy can also pose the risks of bleeding, infection and a bad reaction to anesthesia. Speak to the best cosmetologist in Koramangala to discuss the risks of the procedure beforehand. Other risks posed by a breast lift are:

  • Scarring: Scars from a breast lift are usually permanent. They might fade  a little within two years but may not completely disappear. Scars can be hidden by bras or makeup. If your body does not heal properly or if the procedure is performed poorly, your scars may appear thick, wide and deep.
  • Changes in sensation: While erotic sensation is usually not affected, you may have some loss of sensation in your breasts. Although such sensations eventually return after a few weeks, some can be permanently lost.
  • Loss of the nipple or areola: This is a rare complication but sometimes, the blood supply to your nipple and areola can be interrupted during a breast lift. This can lead to damage in the breast tissues resulting in the loss of the nipple and areola.

What can you expect after the procedure?

Schedule an appointment for a breast lift surgery in Koramangala and prepare for the procedure accordingly.

Following a breast lift surgery, your breasts will be covered with a gauze. You may be asked to wear a surgical support bra. Small tubes may be placed in the sites of incision in your breasts to drain out excess blood or fluid. Your breasts might be swollen and scarred for about 2 weeks after the procedure. You may also experience pain around the incision sites and/or numbness in your nipples and areola.

You will be on pain medication for a few days after the procedure. Avoid straining too much and take plenty of rest. When you are ready to take on your daily activities again, consult your doctor before doing so.


A breast lift procedure might not be permanent. With age, your breasts will tend to sag again, especially if you have large breasts. Maintaining a steady weight can help you retain your results for as long as possible. You can visit the best cosmetologist in Bangalore for more advice.

Can you get a breast lift before pregnancy?

While you can get a breast lift before pregnancy, it is better to wait until after childbirth to do so. When you are pregnant, your breasts will sag again, due to the changes in your body as a pregnant woman. Therefore, doing the procedure after pregnancy is the best course of action.

Can you breastfeed after a mastopexy?

Breast-feeding is usually possible after mastopexy. However, in some cases, the nipples are not separated from the underlying tissue, leading to difficulty in producing enough milk for the baby.

Does a breast lift work effectively on large breasts?

A breast lift can be performed on breasts of any size. However, smaller breasts are more likely to hold the results for longer as the weight of large breasts can lead to sagging breasts quickly. You can combine a breast reduction procedure with a mastopexy to obtain a long-lasting breast lift.
