A Breast Lift at Concierge Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery

A breast lift in Chicago, also known as a mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgery that restores a more attractive contour to the breasts. The procedure is popular among women with ptotic or lower-hanging breasts. A mastopexy can also reduce the size of enlarged areolas (the dark area around the nipples). The surgery removes excess skin and tightens tissue to reduce sagging and lift the nipples into a more youthful position.

Some of the potential benefits of a breast lift include the following:

  • Improved nipple projection
  • Enhanced breast appearance
  • Revived breast contour
  • Reduced areolas size
  • Lifted breast shape
  • Supported breast appearance

Is a Breast Lift Right for Me?

During your consultation, your board-certified surgeon will examine your breasts and skin and understand your goals for your breasts, your medical history, and any concerns. From there, they will determine whether you are a good candidate for a breast lift. Generally, ideal breast lift candidates include the following:

  • Women who are dissatisfied with the sagging or drooping of their breasts due to aging, pregnancy, or weight loss
  • Women who have lost breast volume and firmness over time
  • Women who have nipples that point downward or fall below the breast crease
  • Women who have stretched skin and enlarged areolas
  • Women who are in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure
  • Women who are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding

What causes breasts to sag?

Women’s breasts undergo numerous changes over time. Sagging can occur when native breast ligaments stretch over time or when breast volume and weight increase, decreasing skin’s elastic recoil. Several factors can affect the shape, firmness, and size of the breasts. These include:

  • Fluctuations in weight
  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Genetics
  • Aging
  • Gravity
  • Support

Many women complain of drooping breasts after childbearing. This is why a mastopexy is a popular procedure during a “mommy makeover.”

Begin with a Consultation 

At Concierge Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery, we offer personalized consultations for breast lift procedures. During your consultation, our team of experienced plastic surgeons will work with you to determine the best approach to help you achieve your desired results.

We will develop a personalized treatment plan, explain the procedure in detail, and provide you with information on how to prepare for the procedure and what to expect during the recovery process. With five locations in the Chicago area and virtual consultations for your convenience, we are committed to providing you with the highest level of care and expertise that fits into your busy schedule.

The Day of Your Procedure

The exact technique utilized during a mastopexy depends on several factors. These include the size and shape of an individual’s breasts, the severity of sagging, the condition of the skin, and the size and position of the areolas. We will employ the best technique for your situation. Mastopexy is an outpatient procedure. After arriving in one of our designated surgical centers, you will be placed under general anesthesia.

We will then make incisions as discussed during your consult, which may include:

  • An incision around the areola
  • An incision from the areola down to the breast crease
  • An incision horizontally across the breast crease

Following the incisions, underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped, enhancing contour and breast projection. The areola and nipple are lifted into a more optimal position. Excess breast skin is removed and enlarged areolas are reduced if necessary. After reconstructing the breast, the incisions are closed and dressings are placed.

Recovery and Results

After your surgery, your breast will be bandaged and a surgical support bra must be worn. Some swelling and bruising may persist for several weeks following the surgery. While your breasts will continue to “settle” over the following months, you will notice a change to your breast shape after surgery. The swelling will subside and the scars will fade for six to twelve months. While this surgery restores a youthful contour to your breasts, it cannot stop the aging process. These changes are enduring but not permanent. As you get older, your skin and tissue will continue to lose elasticity, and some sagging may recur.
