If you’re looking to improve the position, contour or overall appearance of your breasts, a mastopexy, commonly known as a breast lift, may be the ideal solution. The purpose of a breast lift is to elevate the breast to help restore a more youthful, uplifted appearance to your breasts.
By assessing your frame, body size and your natural contours, Dr. Gonyon will determine the extent of the mastopexy you need. A breast lift can also be combined with breast augmentation to restore size, shape, and contour to your breasts with a single surgery.
A breast lift procedure is performed by making incisions on and around your breasts depending on the type of mastopexy. There are three options for a mastopexy depending on the incisions made:
Once the incisions have been made, Dr. Gonyon removes excess skin from the lower part of the breast, which will create a firmer, more youthful shape to the breasts to create the lift you desire.
You may be a good candidate for a breast lift or mastopexy:

Patients treated with mastopexy often see:
After a breast lift, you can expect swelling and bruising on your breasts for about two weeks. You may also experience pain and soreness near the incisions, which will be pink or red for a few months.
Dr. Gonyon will encourage you to avoid bending or lifting as much as possible. He’ll also recommend that you sleep on your back or side to keep the pressure off your breasts. The drainage tubes that he may place near your incisions will likely be removed within a few days.
You’ll need to wear a surgical support bra for a few days and then switch to a soft support bra for a few weeks. Silicone tape or gel on the incision areas may also be recommended to speed up the healing process and help improve the final appearance of your scars.
