Breast lift surgery involves removing excess skin and repositioning the remaining tissue to a higher, more youthful position. This can help restore firmness, lift sagging breasts, and reduce the size of the areola. In some cases, the procedure may be combined with breast augmentation to increase the size of smaller or flat breasts.
What Is Breast Lift Surgery?
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgery procedure aimed at restoring a youthful appearance to sagging breasts. Over time, various factors such as aging, weight changes, pregnancy, and gravity can cause the skin to lose its elasticity and lead to sagging and a loss of volume in the breasts. A breast lift involves removing excess skin and repositioning the remaining tissue to a higher, more youthful location. This helps to restore firmness, lift sagging breasts, and reduce the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple).
In some cases, a breast lift may be combined with breast augmentation to increase the size of smaller or flat breasts. The procedure is performed by a plastic surgeon and is typically performed under general anesthesia. The recovery time can vary, but most patients are able to return to normal activities within several weeks. However, it is important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by the surgeon to ensure the best possible results.

This breast lift technique involves a crescent-shaped incision above the areola, removing a small amount of skin for a minimal lift. It is typically used for patients with only mild sagging or those seeking a subtle lift.
Donut Lift (Peri-Areolar Lift)
This method involves an incision around the areola, removing a doughnut-shaped piece of skin, and tightening the surrounding tissue. It is suitable for patients with mild to moderate sagging and can also be used to reduce the size of the areola.
Lollipop Lift (Vertical Lift)
This breast lift involves incisions around the areola and a vertical incision from the areola to the inframammary fold. It is recommended for patients with moderate to severe sagging and provides a more noticeable lift than the crescent or donut lift.
Anchor Lift (Inverted T Lift)
This is the most extensive breast lift procedure and involves incisions around the areola, a vertical incision from the areola to the breast crease, and along the inframammary fold. It is typically used for patients with severe sagging and offers the most dramatic lift.

Frequently Asked Questions
A breast lift is ideal for patients in good health and experiencing sagging or drooping of the breasts. Additionally, it’s important for the patient to be a non-smoker to ensure optimal healing.
During the consultation with Dr. Tyrone, your medical history will be discussed, including any pre-existing conditions. Dr. Tyrone will also conduct an in-depth evaluation of your health. The next step will be an observation of your breasts to determine skin quality, nipple and areola placement, and the degree of lift. Dr. Tyrone will then explain the steps of the procedure and answer any questions you may have.
The procedure begins with the administration of anesthesia. The incisions are skillfully placed at the areola and extended diagonally below the breast to the breast fold. The exact size and location of the incisions will depend on your personalized treatment plan. The breast tissue will then be removed and tightened to reshape the breasts into a firmer, perkier, and more youthful contour. The incisions are closed, and the surgery typically takes between two and three hours. After the patient wakes up, the surgical team will discuss the procedure and provide recovery care instructions.
The cost of a breast lift will depend on the extent of the procedure and whether it includes any other procedures, such as breast augmentation. Most insurance companies do not cover the cost of a breast lift, but our Gainesville plastic surgery office offers financing options for our patients. Contact us today to learn more or schedule a consultation.
Breast lifts are routine surgery performed by Dr. Tyrone. During the consultation, Dr. Tyrone will discuss any potential risks, which may include issues with anesthesia, poor healing, changes in nipple and/or breast sensation, asymmetrical breasts, and breast lift necrosis.
In some cases, a combination of techniques may be needed to achieve the desired results. As the breasts begin to sag, they may also lose some volume. In these cases, Dr. Tyrone may recommend combining a breast lift with breast augmentation. Saline or silicone gel breast implants, such as gummy bear implants, can be placed during the lift to restore volume to the breasts without the need for additional incisions.
Incisions for a breast lift are typically located around the areola, extending down to the fold underneath the breast and underneath the breast itself. There are also “short scar” techniques that eliminate the incision under the breast. During the consultation, Dr. Tyrone will let you know if you are a candidate for a minimal incision breast lift. The incisions will mature and fade over time, and Dr. Tyrone will provide instructions on how to support and optimize the incisions during the postoperative period.
Once you have scheduled your breast lift, you will receive preoperative instructions covering everything from finances to postoperative follow-up visits. You will need basic blood work and medical clearance from your primary doctor. You will also receive medication prescriptions from the patient coordinator, which should be filled in the days before the surgery.
