If you have breast sagging (breast ptosis) due to aging, weight fluctuations, or pregnancy, you’re not alone. It’s something every woman will experience some degree of over her lifetime. However, if the appearance bothers you, a breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, can restore a youthful contour.
If you’re interested in this procedure, you’re probably wondering how long you’ll see the benefits of a mastopexy. Fortunately, breast lift results are long-lasting. Read on to learn more about what to expect.
How Long Will I See My Breast Lift Results?
During your mastopexy, our board-certified plastic surgeons will remove excess skin, reposition the nipple, and tighten the surrounding tissue to create a more lifted and full shape. Though the excess skin we remove is permanently gone, your breasts will continue to age like the rest of your body and will change shape over time. Patients typically enjoy the full results of their breast lift for ten to fifteen years.
How Can I Make My Breast Lift Last Longer?
If you want your breast lift to last as long as possible, there are a few things you can do. The most important is to choose the right time for your mastopexy. We recommend waiting until your family is complete since another pregnancy can cause skin stretching or breast deflation. You should also be at or near your ideal weight to avoid major fluctuations in your breast size.
Additionally, avoiding smoking and tobacco products and wearing sunscreen on your chest can slow the loss of skin elasticity. Maintaining strong muscle tone with pectoral exercises contributes to a more lifted look.
Can I Get a Second Breast Lift?
Many of our patients are so satisfied with the results of their first breast lift that they want to maintain their results a decade or so down the line. A mastopexy revision can correct much of the sagging or elongation that naturally occurs as you age.
