A breast lift is performed to reshape and lift sagging breasts. During the procedure, excess fat, tissue, and skin are removed from the breasts. Silicone or saline breast implants can also be placed during a breast lift.

Conditions Treated with a Breast Lift:

A breast lift is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely unaware during the procedure.
Potential Complications from a Breast Lift:
Potential risks of a breast lift include bleeding, infection, scarring, or a negative reaction to the anesthesia. Possible complications also include swelling, soreness, bruising, or loss of nipple sensitivity following the procedure.
Prognosis after a Breast Lift:

Recovery from a Breast Lift:
The total recovery period for a breast lift is about four weeks.
