Over time, many women notice that their breasts have begun to droop. The breast skin and tissue lose elasticity, and the breasts themselves lose shape and become elongated and saggy. This can be the result of pregnancy, weight loss, or simply part of aging. A breast lift at our Nashville, Tennessee practice can lift and reshape the breasts for a younger, natural look.
Breast Lift Procedure
Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift raises and sculpts the breasts and elevates the nipple position. The breast tissue is repositioned and the breast skin tightened to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes, mesh or accellular dermal matrix material is used to support the breast to reduce the recurrent sagging over time. If the areolas are enlarged, Dr. Griffin can reduce their size a breast lift. Incision patterns vary depending on the degree of excess skin and amount of lifting required as well as patient and surgeon preference.

Breast lifts can be performed with or without breast implants. If you have adequate breast tissue and are happy with your breast size, a mastopexy is all that you need. If larger breasts are desired, then a breast augmentation is combined with a breast lift in the same surgery. Conversely, if the breasts are too large and heavy in addition to being saggy, then breast reduction may be recommended.
Dr. Griffin will meet with you for an initial consultation to talk about your goals and determine if breast lift surgery is the best option for your needs.
What Should You Expect?
Breast lift surgery typically takes approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, although more time will be needed if you are having multiple procedures at the same time. Most patients are fully recovered within a matter of weeks, and can generally ease back into normal activities within a few days of their procedure. It will take 2 to 3 months before the breasts reach their final shape. Incision lines will continue to flatten and fade for up to a year.
