What is a breast lift?
A breast lift, technically known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that elevates your breast profile. The surgeon makes strategic incisions to remove excess skin and breast tissues to lift your breasts in the ideal uplifted position. This makes your breasts look youthful and firm, reversing the effects of age, weight fluctuations, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
Effect: This young beauty was tired of her breasts that cause neck strain and poor posture. A breast lift with a small reduction was performed which places the breasts in a more ergonomic position. She can now sport cute tops even without a bra!
You’re a good candidate for a breast lift if you:
- Are in generally good physical and mental health.
- Don’t have underlying medical conditions that prevent optimal wound healing or recovery.
- Don’t smoke or are willing to stop smoking several months before and after the surgery.
- Have realistic expectations from breast lift surgery.
- Have sagging breasts or downward-pointing nipples.
- Have uneven or asymmetrical breasts.
- Want to reverse the effects of age, weight fluctuations, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
Dr. Chaowen Wu specializes in highly personalized and natural breast lifts that work with your existing anatomy to ensure optimal results. She listens to your concerns, discusses your goals, reviews your medical history, and determines if you’re a viable candidate for a breast lift. You can schedule a free 10-minute consultation with Dr. Wu’s surgical consultants to determine if you should proceed with an appointment.

What happens during the breast lift procedure?
Dr. Wu performs your breast lift at the surgery center using general anesthesia. The size, shape, and style of the incision depend on your unique goals and the severity of breast ptosis.
Mild breast ptosis warrants a simple incision around the areola, whereas severe ptosis calls for an anchor incision that runs horizontally along the breast crease. After making the incision, Dr. Wu removes the excess skin and breast tissues to restore your breast’s optimal projection. Your nipples may also be repositioned into a new shape to ensure they point forwards rather than down.
After the necessary adjustments, the incisions are closed with sutures, and the incisions are covered with water proof bandages that protect your incisions for 2-3 weeks.
What is the post-breast lift recovery process like?
You’ll experience some discomfort for the first 2-3 days after surgery then quickly feel great again. You may shower 2 days after surgery. Your swelling, bruising, and tenderness will improve significantly after 2-3 weeks and that’s when your waterproof bandages will be removed in the office. You will then begin scar therapy to optimize incision healing. You will continue to wear your post-op bra or a soft supportive bra for 12 weeks after surgery. You can go bra shopping at 3 months!
Most patients find it sufficient to take only 1 week off work. You should sleep on your back for the first 2 weeks after surgery. You should also avoid lifting your arms overhead, lifting heavy objects, and strenuous activities. You can potentially resume low-level activities after 2 weeks and resume all your normal activities by 6 weeks. Dr. Wu will be in touch throughout the recovery process to ensure you have a safe and smooth recovery.

“Absolutely amazing experience with Doctor Wu! I had a mini tummy tuck and I feel absolutely amazing. The recovery was a breeze, my scar is not much bigger than my C-section scar and it’s excellent! I have my pre-mommy body back.
From beginning to present my experience was outstanding. I felt so attended to and heard. I met with several other surgeons prior to finding Dr. Wu and they definitely did not hear me or listen to what I wanted.
I feel so safe around Dr. Wu, she is very kind and compassionate. I am so grateful for her and her amazing staff. Thank you so much for taking care of me and finding the me that was in there all along ♥️♥️”Olivia Garza

“Dr. Wu has such an amazing and gentle spirit! Being in my early 20’s I was nervous about the process of undergoing such a big operation but after my first consultation with her I immediately knew that she was the right person to do my reduction and that I was in good hands. I got a breast reduction back in April 2021, now 5 months later I’m super pleased with my results. I had no discomfort or pain following surgery because to Dr. Wu's excellent skills, and I was able to heal in just two weeks, which I was ecstatic about. Dr. Wu performs exceptionally well in every surgery she undergoes. I strongly suggest her to anybody; you will not be disappointed! ♥️”Heaven

As long as you maintain a stable weight, your breast lift results should last for decades. Of course our body continues to age with time so there may come a point where a touch up might be desired.
Breast fat transfer is an excellent addition to a breast lift (mastopexy) procedure when you have smaller or deflated breasts. Instead of using artificial implants, adding your natural fat cells to your breasts can help enhance breast shape by adding fullness to the top of the breasts to enhance cleavage.
Removal of breast implants can leave your breasts deflated and saggy. A combination of an immediate breast lift with breast fat transfer breast augmentation can be performed after implant removal to re-enhance the shape of the breasts.
