Mastopexy or Breast Lift

Mastopexy is a surgical procedure to reshape, resize and raise sagging breasts in women. Mastopexy is commonly known as breast lift. 

During Mastopexy, surgeons remove the surplus skin from the breasts and tighten the surrounding tissues, often ensuring breast contouring as well.

How do you prepare for Mastopexy?

Your doctor will be performing a few tests like mammograms each month before the surgery to understand the changes in the breast tissues. He/she may also suggest weight management and giving up smoking and certain medications as precautionary measures for a speedy recovery after surgery.

How is Mastopexy performed?

This surgical treatment needs sedation or local anesthesia which numbs the body part to be operated on. The surgery is performed at a licensed hospital or an outpatient clinic. The plastic surgeon performs the breast lift along with breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery as per your requirement and concern. 

The incision depends on the type of surgery. Incisions include:

  • An oval incision around the nipple
  • A vertical incision
  • A keyhole incision

In Mastopexy, the nipples are detached and then fixed to a higher level and are held with surgical seams or stitches. Nowadays, with the development of various medical techniques, scarless surgeries are also possible. The surgery usually takes approximately 2 to 3 hours and you can be discharged from the hospital on the same day.

What are the risks of Mastopexy?

These may include:

  • Scars
  • Blood clots
  • Difficulty in breastfeeding
  • Infection
  • Loss of sensitivity of breasts
  • Fluid accumulation in breast (sometimes blood)
  • Loss of nipple or areola
  • Need for correction surgery
  • Uneven or oddly-shaped breasts
  • Pain


The full results can be seen a few months after the surgery. Mastopexy is not a permanent surgery. As you age, you may again feel like getting a relift surgery.

Can I breastfeed after getting a breast lift surgery?

In most cases, breastfeeding is not preferred after Mastopexy. If you are planning to get pregnant in future, discuss this with your medical team before the surgery.

Is mastopexy painful surgery?

Mastopexy is a relatively less painful surgery as compared to other cosmetic and plastic surgeries. The pain in Mastopexy is quite manageable with help of pain medicines prescribed by a plastic surgeon.

Does Mastopexy leave scars?

The incisions might lead to some scars, but they fade with time. With the newest techniques in Mastopexy, scarless surgeries are now possible. Do discuss all your concerns with your surgeon beforehand
