Breast Lift

Step into a new phase of self-assurance with Dr. Sony Truong's breast lift procedure. Also known as mastopexy, this surgery raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to support a new, more youthful breast contour.

Benefits of Breast Lift

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the shape and position of the breasts. The following are some of the key benefits of a breast lift:

  • Firmer Breast Appearance: A breast lift removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissues, resulting in firmer and more youthful-looking breasts.
  • Reduced Discomfort: Sagging breasts can sometimes cause physical discomfort. Lifting the breasts can alleviate such discomfort and make everyday activities more comfortable.
  • Restoring Symmetry: Breasts often aren't identical in size or shape. A breast lift can help correct these asymmetries, leading to a more balanced and harmonious look.
  • Better Posture: The weight of sagging breasts may lead to poor posture. By lifting the breasts, the procedure can contribute to improved posture.
  • Greater Mobility for Exercise: Sagging breasts can interfere with physical activities, including exercise. A breast lift can increase mobility, making physical activities more comfortable.

What Can Breast Lift Address?

  • Improved Breast Shape: A breast lift can enhance the shape of the breasts, making them appear more youthful and firm.
  • Better Nipple Position: The procedure can raise the position of the nipples and reduce the size of the areolas if they have become enlarged over time.
  • Enhanced Confidence: By improving the appearance of the breasts, a breast lift can boost self-esteem and confidence.
  • Better Fit of Clothes: After a breast lift, clothes often fit better and more comfortably, which can further enhance self-confidence.
  • Long-Lasting Results: The results of a breast lift are long-lasting, typically maintaining the improved breast shape for 10 to 15 years.
  • Correction of Asymmetry: A breast lift can correct asymmetries between the breasts, creating a more balanced appearance.

Ideal Candidates for Breast Lift

  • Women whose breasts have lost shape or volume over time.
  • Individuals with flat or elongated breasts.
  • Those with nipples that fall below the breast crease when unsupported.
  • Non-smokers and individuals in good health.
  • Those with a positive outlook and realistic expectations.
  • Individuals willing to maintain a stable weight post-surgery.
  • Women who are not currently pregnant or nursing.
  • Those uncomfortable with the loss of breast firmness.

  • Consultation

    During your consultation, Dr. Truong will discuss your goals, assess your health, and explain the breast lift procedure in detail. He will guide you throughout the process, ensuring a comfortable and satisfying journey towards your aesthetic goals.

    Treatment Options

    Alternatives to a breast lift include breast augmentation or reduction, which Dr. Truong can discuss with you during your consultation. He will help you choose the best treatment plan based on your needs and desires.

    What happens during Breast Lift?

    The breast lift procedure starts with anesthesia, followed by incisions on the breasts. Excess skin is removed, breast tissue is reshaped, and the nipple and areola are repositioned. You may feel mild discomfort during recovery, but this will subside over time. Expect a boost in confidence as you embrace your new, uplifted look.


    Recovery from a breast lift varies but generally involves rest, avoiding strenuous activities, and wearing a support bra. Swelling and discomfort will gradually lessen over weeks, revealing your beautifully lifted and reshaped breasts.

    Post-Operative Care

    After surgery, you'll need to rest, avoid heavy lifting, wear a support bra, and attend follow-up appointments with Dr. Truong. Each step is crucial to ensure a smooth healing process and optimal results.

    Addressing Mild To Moderate Issues

    Absolutely, a breast lift, also known as mastopexy, can address several mild to moderate issues related to the breasts:

    • Sagging Breasts: One of the primary purposes of a breast lift is to address sagging (ptosis) which can be caused by age, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or genetics. The procedure removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue, raising the breasts and giving them a more youthful appearance.
    • Nipple Position: If your nipples point downward or fall below the breast crease when unsupported, a breast lift can raise their position on the chest, making them look natural and proportionate.
    • Stretched Areolas: Pregnancy and weight gain can cause the areolas (the darker area surrounding the nipples) to stretch and enlarge. A breast lift can reduce the size of the areolas if necessary.
    • Asymmetrical Breasts: It's common for women to have one breast slightly larger than the other. A breast lift can adjust the size and shape of each breast to make them more symmetrical.
    • Inverted Nipples: Some women have inverted nipples that retract inward instead of pointing outward. A breast lift can correct this issue.

    Breast Lift FAQs

    How long does it take for a breast lift to settle?

    Approximately six to 12 weeks after surgery, your breasts should be mostly settled into their final positions. However, it may be between about two weeks to six months and a year before you see your complete results.

    What are the disadvantages of a breast lift?

    Older women or women with conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, or an autoimmune disorder have an increased risk of complications with anesthesia and slowed healing. There may be temporary or permanent loss of sensation in the nipples or breasts.

    What not to do after a breast lift?

    Avoid straining, bending and lifting. Sleep on your back or your side to keep pressure off your breasts. Avoid sexual activity for at least 1 to 2 weeks after the breast lift. Ask your health care provider when it's OK to resume daily activities, such as washing your hair, showering or bathing.

    How long does it take for breast lift incisions to heal?

    Your breast lift incisions should begin to close and heal within the first 1 – 2 weeks after surgery, during which time it is important to keep the area clean and not submerge the incisions. Once they have fully closed, the scar should begin to fade from red to pink and ultimately to flesh or white tone.

    Can a breast lift with implants provide symmetrical breasts?

    Yes, a breast lift with implants can correct asymmetry in the breasts. However, perfect symmetry is not always possible as no two breasts are exactly alike.
