What Is a Breast Lift?

Houston, TX board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rolando Morales restores the breast and nipple back to its youthful anatomical position following the effects of aging, weight loss or pregnancy through a breast lift, or mastopexy. Restoration of a breast to its anatomical position is dependent on many factors, including age, the quality of the skin, history of pregnancy and history of weight loss. The breast lift procedure is intended to give women an elevated, more youthful breast contour, as well as ensure the desired size of the nipple-areolar complexes are at the correct height and location.

Breast lift surgery is a great choice for women looking to gain a fuller appearance to their chest. A customized mastopexy procedure completed by Dr. Morales at his Houston, TX office is associated with the following benefits:

  • Improving breast firmness and fullness
  • Tightening skin for a smoother look
  • Revising drooping and sagging
  • Fixing breast asymmetry
  • A more youthful overall look
  • Adjusting the areolas and upgrading nipple positioning
  • Reducing irritation under the breasts

You may visit Dr. Morales wanting fuller breasts with breast implants, but after a private assessment, you may realize that breast lift surgery is a better choice to achieve your desired results. The reason is due to the severity of sag that is shown. In most cases, breasts that have lost elasticity need a lift to correct skin irregularities and lift the breasts to a perkier position. If you have nipples that droop downward and your breasts appear stretched, a cosmetic lift can dramatically improve their appearance. If you are contemplating a breast lift, you should be physically healthy and at a stable weight.

Surgical Technique

A breast lift typically takes 2 to 3 hours to complete, and is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. There are several possible techniques for a breast lift. If there is breast volume asymmetry, it can be improved by removing excess volume in the larger breast. All techniques typically require excess skin excision to help reshape the breast. These techniques are designed to move the nipple into a more youthful position. There are other techniques, such as the short-scar lift, which involves less extensive incisions and scarring, which may be appropriate for certain patients.

During/After Surgery

A few days after surgery, any bandages that are applied are usually removed. Patients are required to wear a support bra or compression bandage to help support and position the breasts. They will feel tight as the skin adjusts to the new breast shape. Swelling fades within a few weeks. The scars will be pink for several weeks, but fade over a period of several months. Patients will be able to go about light daily activities after the first few days, but more aerobic recreation should be delayed for about 3 weeks. Most patients return to work within 2 weeks unless their job requires lifting or aerobic activity.

Extreme Body Makeover!! - Thanks to Dr.Morales, I finally had my extreme body makeover on March 2, 2021. I had tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, body lift and also breast lift. Everything is healing great and can’t wait for my final out coming ! Sorry, no pictures at this time but maybe later.

I just want to return gestures and pray that I can be that inspiration to the next woman on the fence of deciding. - Dr. Rolando Morales came highly recommended to me. When I first went to Dr. M, I was only wanting a breast lift (2017). He did suggest augmentations for upper pole fullness. I’m already very busty, so I thought implants would make me HUGH! So at the time, I declined...Well, ladies let me say “doc knows best” because within 2 years I was back because “something was missing”... yep you got that ...

So at the time, I declined...Well, ladies let me say “doc knows best” because within 2 years I was back because “something was missing”... yep you got that right, the fullness that he said that I would miss. Dr. Morales listened to my concerns and gave me exactly what I wanted; upper pole fullness WITHOUT bigger breast. Needless to say, I was very pleased with the outcome of my results.I then decided that “hey after 2 wonderful pregnancies and 2 beautiful boys”; it was time to have that flat tummy I had in my youth pre-pregnancy bod. I booked liposuction of the back, flanks, bra line, and a tummy tuck (full abdominoplasty) for 3/25/2021. I did have the Exparel, which is making the pain very manageable. I am POD 1 and as you can see from my pictures, I have no shape and is VERY swollen, but so far I’m doing well and pain is minimal. I will take pictures to add the more time goes by to allow you to see my journey. The women who charted and shared their journey from start to finish really helped me make the final decision and put my mind at ease just seeing their transformations. I just want to return gestures and pray that I can be that inspiration to the next woman on the fence of deciding. Will keep you all posted. Any questions just ask! ;-)

About Us

Covered By Insurance?

Unfortunately, most insurance policies consider a breast lift as a cosmetic procedure, and do not cover the expenses of the procedure.

Combine With Other Procedures?

A breast lift is often combined with other body contouring procedures, such as a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or liposuction. When all of these are combined, it is often called a Mommy Makeover.

When Can I Go Back To Work?

Every person recovers differently. The recovery period depends on how many procedures were performed at the same time. The average return to work for the standard breast lift is 1 week.

When Can I Exercise?

The average return to routine exercise is no sooner than 2 months. The swelling after breast lift surgery requires more time to heal.
