About Breast Lift Surgery
Get a whole new perspective on your appearance with a breast lift consultation at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa. In our Delray Beach, FL practice, our plastic surgeons perform breast lift surgery to lift and reposition sagging breasts to a perkier position. Also known as a mastopexy, breast lift surgery can reverse the signs of aging in your breast skin from losing a significant amount of weight, breast feeding, baby weight gain, downward pointing nipples, or just skin laxity. Restoring the suppleness and projection of your breast tissue is an invasive procedure we can perform on an out-patient basis to help you reach your aesthetic goals, look younger, and love your feminine bustline again.
We can also offer a breast lift surgery with augmentation to increase the fullness of the breast in tandem with repositioning breast tissue in a lift. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will discuss this option with you. A saline or silicone implant can be placed under the breast tissue or breast muscle at the same time that the lift is performed. In some cases, your best results will require moving the nipple to a higher position once the extra skin or stretched-out areola is repaired. This will improve the overall appearance of your breasts.
"Dr. Schnitt is one of the few doctors who truly provides the quality of care I expect. His front office assistant (Kristin) was highly professional and very caring. Dr. Schnitt took his time to examine my son and explain everything in detail. He was extremely patient and totally thorough. I was able to contact him directly, before and after surgery. He did an amazing job fixing my son's broken nose. I am deeply grateful and I highly recommend him. JG"- D.G. / Facebook / Mar 24, 2017

During your breast lift consultation, you will receive a thorough assessment where the surgeon will evaluate your current breast size and shape by taking measurements. Your surgeon may also assess the breast symmetry, skin elasticity, and bone structure during your consultation. Candidates for breast lift surgery should be non-smokers in good health who have a least one of the following concerns:
- Decreased breast volume
- Altered breast shape
- Pendulous breasts
- Asymmetrical breasts
- Large or stretched areolas
- Downward pointing nipples
What to Expect
There are three different types of breast lift incisions that may be used depending on your unique factors. The doctor will choose one or more incision patterns for your operation based on the current size and elasticity of your breasts and areolas. After breast lift surgery, you will be wrapped in a sterile surgical dressing and a medical compression bra. We recommend you wear something comfortable since your chest will be swollen and sore for approximately 1 – 2 weeks. All patients are advised to take it easy the first 2 – 3 weeks after surgery and avoid physical activities. A full recovery can take anywhere from 6 – 8 weeks. Please call our office immediately if you have any questions or concerns during your recovery.
To give you the best results, we use only cutting-edge breast lift techniques and place incisions in areas of the breast that are less visible or easily covered. You will be given instructions on how to care for your surgical wounds during your recovery to speed your healing and minimize the appearance of scars, but all patients will have some degree of scarring.
During the initial consultation, we are happy to help you learn more about the differences between a breast lift and breast augmentation, and give our opinion on which procedure is best for your goals. Some patients may have a breast augmentation combined with a breast lift to get a fuller and perkier bust.
