Trusted Breast Lift Procedures in Scottsdale and Phoenix, AZ

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is the ideal procedure for women with sagging breasts and a loss of breast shape. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Scottsdale, we offer breast lift surgery for women who want to rejuvenate the shape and beauty of their breasts.

Correcting Breast Ptosis with a Breast Lift

If a woman’s breasts are sagging, this can be described as breast ptosis. There are three grades of ptosis. Grade I is the mildest form of sagging; Grade II is more moderate; and Grade III is more extreme. The breast lift procedure, also known as mastopexy, is a method of correcting ptosis.

Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a procedure to enhance the size of the breasts using breast implants. A breast lift removes excess skin to improve the shape of the breasts, make the breasts perkier, and raise the areolae and nipples. If there is breast sagging and the patient desires an increase in breast size as well, a breast augmentation with lift can be performed. During your consultation, the option of a breast lift and augmentation can be discussed with Dr. Daiza. Breast reduction and lifts are also common.

Personalizing Your Breast Lift

Before surgery, you and your surgeon will discuss options for incision patterns. These patterns correspond to the patient’s desired breast changes and their skin elasticity.

Grade I ptosis can typically be taken care of with a crescent lift, the most minor of the lift procedures. This involves a crescent line bordering the top of the areola.

Moderate ptosis may require either a donut lift or a lollipop lift. The donut lift involves two concentric circles around the areola. The lollipop lift involves one circle around the areola and two diagonal incisions down and outwards from it.

For the most extreme cases of breast ptosis, an anchor lift may be recommended. With this lift, the incision pattern is keyhole-shaped. The top of the keyhole, located above the current position of the areola, is made in the location where the areola will be raised.


Couldn’t be happier with Dr. Daiza! Went to her for a breast implant exchange (saline to silicone) and breast lift after pregnancies and nursing. I’m about 2 months post op and absolutely thrilled with the results. Getting dressed is fun again!! He bedside manner is fantastic and she is very skilled at what she does. 5 stars!!

The Breast Lift Procedure

A breast lift procedure can take one to three hours to complete. After general or local anesthesia has been administered, the surgeon will make the incision(s). The surgeon will trim away excess skin. The incision(s) will then be closed with medical stitches.

Breast Lift Recovery

Once the procedure is complete, you will need to take at least a week off of work while your body heals. Avoid performing any physically taxing activities for at least one month.

It will be necessary to wear a surgical bra to give your tissues the support they need as they settle into their new location. You should be able to come in for stitch removal in two to three weeks. Once healing is complete, your breasts will be lifted and perkier.

Breast Lift Cost

The cost of a breast lift depends on several factors. Price also varies depending on whether the patient desires a breast lift with implants or a breast lift without implants. The Plastic Surgery Center of Scottsdale offers financing with Care Credit.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Can I Expect from a Breast Lift in Terms of Shape and Size?

A breast lift will result in lifted and firmer breasts by removing excess skin and tightening surrounding tissue to create a new, supportive breast contour. The primary goal is to improve breast shape and position, not necessarily to significantly change size. Patients can expect their breasts to look more lifted and firm, with nipples and areolas repositioned to a more youthful height.

If your breasts have lost volume over time or due to childbirth and breastfeeding, a lift can restore a more rounded and uplifted shape, but won’t make them larger. For those seeking to enhance breast size or fullness, especially in the upper area, combining a breast lift with augmentation is recommended.

Can a Breast Lift Be Combined with Breast Augmentation?

Yes, a breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation. For many women, this combination achieves the best results by enhancing breast volume while also lifting the breasts. This provides a fuller and more youthful appearance. Dr. Daiza will assess your anatomy, discuss goals, and recommend the best approach based on your breast tissue, desired outcome, and health.

How Long Do the Results of a Breast Lift Last?

A breast lift offers enduring results. While factors like aging and gravity will have an effect over time, maintaining a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle, along with wearing supportive bras, can help extend the longevity of the lift. Future pregnancies or significant weight changes may necessitate additional procedures to maintain the desired appearance.

Will I Have Scars After a Breast Lift?

Scarring is natural in a breast lift procedure since it involves incisions on the breasts. However, the extent and visibility of the scars depend on the technique used and the individual’s healing process.

Common incision patterns include around the areola, vertically down from the areola to the breast crease, and horizontally along the breast crease in more extensive lifts.

Over time, these scars should fade and become less noticeable. Proper scar care, including following post-operative instructions, can help minimize scarring.

Can a Breast Lift Affect My Ability to Breastfeed?

It’s truly important to consider the delicate balance between the benefits of a breast lift and your future breastfeeding plans. Techniques that gently adjust the nipple and areola are often associated with a minimal impact on breastfeeding. On the other hand, procedures that involve moving the nipple could potentially affect the milk ducts and nerves.

Your aspirations for motherhood and breastfeeding are significant, and sharing these with your surgeon will guide the choice of technique to support both your aesthetic goals and the precious experience of nursing your child. Your well-being and peace of mind are paramount, and thoughtful communication with your healthcare provider is key to ensuring the best possible outcome.
