What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical breast procedure to reshape and lift sagging breasts. This procedure is typically performed on patients who have experienced significant changes in breast shape and firmness due to aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, or genetics.
A San Francisco Breast lift is typically performed under general anesthesia and may require a recovery period of several weeks. It’s important to discuss the risks and benefits of this procedure with a qualified plastic surgeon before making a decision.
San Francisco Breast Lift Technique
One of the most common concerns for patients seeking a breast lift are the scars. The reality is that every surgical procedure is going to leave some kind of scar. It’s a trade off for lifted skin. However, these scars can be minimized with exemplary surgical technique and the latest scar management therapies.*
Dr. Sieber has done advanced training with some of the best breast surgeons in the country and understands the importance of delivering the least conspicuous incision lines possible. One of the ways to do this is by choosing the appropriate incision type for your individual anatomy.
The three types of incisions that Dr. Sieber uses for a breast lift are:
Periareolar Incision on Breast:
This incision traces around the pigmented skin of the areola. While this incision can allow for very good scar healing, it also may disrupt the milk ducts and glands which can affect your ability to breastfeed in the future.
This incision begins with a periareolar incision and then runs vertically from the bottom of the areola to the bottom of the breast.
This breasts incision follows the same path as a keyhole incision, but also runs horizontally along the breast crease in either direction for a short distance.
After making the incisions, Dr. Sieber will then reshape the breast tissue to create a rounder, fuller breast while at the same time lifting the breast mound to a higher position on your torso, restoring a perkier, younger looking profile.* Breast lift surgery is a same-day procedure performed under general anesthesia.

Breast Lift Before and After
Preparing for Mastopexy
As with any major surgery, all medications and supplements which cause an increased risk of bleeding should be stopped 2 weeks prior to surgery. Please see our list of medications and supplements to avoid. As always, make sure to check with your doctor before stopping any medications.
Breast Lift Recovery
It’s normal to feel some soreness and sensitivity during the first few days after your breast lift surgery. You may also have some areas of numbness, but these will gradually improve with time.*
Most patients should plan to take off at least a week from work. After surgery, you will need to refrain from any rigorous activity for the first 2 weeks, and shouldn’t lift anything heavier than 10 lbs.
You may begin to perform light exercise 2 weeks after your surgery, but should avoid chest exercises such as push-ups. You may begin more intense exercise at 4 weeks, and will be released to full activities at 6 weeks post op.
Most patients can see their final breast lift results within 2 to 4 months, but scars can take up to a year to totally heal and fade.*

Frequently Asked Questions About Mastopexy
How long does a breast lift last?
The results of a breast lift can last for several years, but they are not permanent. The longevity of the results depends on several factors, including the individual’s genetics, skin elasticity, and lifestyle habits.
To help prolong the results of a breast lift, it’s important to maintain a stable weight, wear a supportive bra, avoid smoking, and practice healthy lifestyle habits. Regular exercise and a balanced diet can also help to promote healthy skin and breasts tissue, which can help to maintain the results of a breast lift for longer.
Will I have Breast Lift Scars?
It is common for breast lift surgery to leave some scarring, as vertical incisions are made to remove excess skin and reshape the breasts. The extent and visibility of the scars will depend on factors such as the type of breast lift procedure, the individual’s healing process, and their skin type and quality.
I have big areolas. Is there anything that can be done about that at the same time?
Many women find that as their breasts tissue has stretched out over time, so have their areolas. As a part of breast lift surgery, the areolar size is reduced so that it is in proportion to your newly lifted breast.*
Does a breast lift tighten skin?
Yes, a breast lift, or mastopexy, is designed to tighten the skin of the breasts. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, and the remaining breast tissue is reshaped and lifted to create a firmer and more youthful appearance. The tightening of the skin helps to address issues such as sagging and drooping breasts, giving them a lifted and rejuvenated look.
I want fullness and cleavage in the top of my breasts. Will a lift help with this?
A breast lift will remove excess skin, and reposition your breast tissue and nipple higher on your chest wall.* However, many patients opt to have a breast implant placed at the same time as their breast lift surgery to restore fullness to the top part of the breast*. Ask Dr. Sieber if you are a good candidate for a breast implant at the time of your breast lift consultation.
My breasts look like they are different sizes. How do I get them to look more similar?
A breast reduction, breast augmentation, and breast lift can all help to create more breast symmetry.* The right procedure is going to depend on your individual anatomy. While no two breasts are exactly alike, wanting them to be more similar in size and shape is a realistic goal. Dr. Sieber will help guide you to the procedure that is right for you and your desired look
Is a breast lift cheaper than breast augmentation with implants?
Breasts lifts require greater surgical expertise and time to lift and remove tissue, making them cost slightly more than breast implants. However, the tradeoff is that breast lift results may not be as long-lasting as breast implants.
Can you tighten breast skin without surgery?
While there are some non-surgical treatments that claim to tighten breast skin, the results are typically limited compared to surgical options like a breast lift.
