Breast Lift

The breasts can begin to droop for a number of reasons, including the aging process, pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight loss. Our leading breast surgeons can return your chest to its original, elevated position - helping to restore a youthful look that reflects the vibrancy you feel inside.

Shapely and perky breasts form the foundation for your femininity. So when they begin to sag, it can be an extremely distressing experience. Highly skilled in the art of the breast lift, our surgeons can help to restore your sensual confidence by rediscovering your youthful breasts - expertly lifting and sculpting your breast tissue to achieve the beautiful chest you deserve.

What a breast lift can do for you?

A breast lift at Clinique of Plastic Surgery can revitalize your entire appearance and give you back the beautiful breasts of your youth by:

Repositioning nipples that are too low . Addressing a hollowed appearance on top of the breasts
Elevating sagging, drooping and low breasts . Enhancing small and deflated breasts
Sculpting round and perky breasts . Achieving an enhanced chest profile

Your completely customized breast lift

At Clinique of Plastic Surgery, we will customize your breast lift based on your unique needs - including the severity of your sagging, your nipple position and the quality of your breast tissue. For the procedure, we will either perform the doughnut mastopexy or the vertical mastopexy and inner bra lift, depending on our discussion during your initial consultation. If you possess mild breast sagging that's associated with pregnancy or weight loss, we will likely recommend the doughnut mastopexy. For this procedure, we will make an incision around the areola, through which we can remove excess sagging skin, elevate the breast tissue and moderately uplift the nipple.

If you suffer from more severe sagging breasts, we may recommend the vertical mastopexy and inner bra lift. For this procedure, we will create a modified vertical incision around the areola and down the front of the breast. We will then remove a wedge of tissue below the areola, which will allow us to elevate the breast and nipple, as well as achieve internal tightening.

Both of these approaches can also be combined with a subfascial breast augmentation, if you desire a more voluminous chest in addition to a perkier position for the breasts. In this case, we will also place carefully chosen breast implants underneath the fibrous layer of the pectoral muscles to achieve a full and feminine chest profile that fits your body.

Your recovery

After your breast lift surgery, you can expect your breasts to be moderately swollen and bruised, and you may experience some pain. You'll need to wear bandages and a surgical bra for several days to protect your chest and maintain your results. In about one week, you will return to our St. Petersburg office to have your staples, dressing and stiches removed.

As you heal, it's important to avoid heavy lifting, straining, tanning and sun exposure for at least six weeks. All of these activities can increase pressure and cause your breasts to swell, which can impact your results. In most cases, you'll be able to return to work within one week and resume your full activities within one month.
