Sagging breasts, misaligned nipples, and breast asymmetry can be corrected with a mastopexy in Detroit Metropolitan. Also called a breast lift, mastopexy surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure that involves removal of excess skin and tightening of the remaining skin. The nipples can also be resized during this procedure.

As women go through different stages in life, the appearance of their breasts is affected by factors like motherhood, aging, weight loss, and the downward pull of gravity. Our skilled surgeons can conduct a mastopexy to return the breasts’ youthful appearance.

Am I a Good Candidate for Mastopexy?

The best candidates for a breast lift are physically healthy individuals. People with medical conditions affecting incision healing may not be considered for this procedure.

Other lifestyle factors that can affect incision healing are alcohol consumption and smoking. Avoid drinking alcohol for at least 48 hours before the procedure, and quit smoking for at least four to six weeks before and after your mastopexy.

A mastopexy is best for people who are emotionally prepared to undergo the procedure. Since body appearance varies from person to person, the results will be different for everyone. It is important to set realistic expectations.

Your Mastopexy Consultation

A mastopexy consultation will involve an in-depth conversation with one of our surgeons about your appearance goals. The best surgical techniques for your breast concerns will be discussed.

To help your surgeon plan a safe and complication-free breast lift, you will need to provide your complete medical history. To determine your eligibility for a mastopexy, a physical examination will be performed. You may also need to undergo lab tests like clotting time, bleeding time, and a cardiac clearance.

A highly individualized surgical plan will be prepared to satisfy your aesthetic goals. A date will then be set for your breast lift procedure.

The Procedure

The duration of a breast lift should be about three hours. The mastopexy will begin with administration of general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia takes effect, the surgeon will proceed with creating incisions.

There are three potential incision options for a breast lift. The first, a donut incision, involves two circular incisions around the areola. The second, a lollipop incision, involves a circle around the areola and a vertical incision down to the breast crease. The third, an inverted-T incision, is similar to the lollipop incision but also features a curving horizontal incision across the crease.

Depending on your preference and what you have agreed upon with the surgeon, one of these three types of incisions will be created. Next, excess skin will be removed, and the remaining skin will be tightened. The nipples may be resized and/or repositioned as needed. Finally, all incisions will be closed with the help of stitches.

The Mastopexy Recovery Process

After a mastopexy, patients will need to take time off work. Patients can resume daily activities with minimal effort after the first week. Strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks.

Stitches will be removed after one to two weeks during a follow-up appointment. It is recommended that patients wear a surgical support bra for a time.

Swelling and bruising will be present in the area but will fade. Patients can use silicone tape or gel on post-surgical marks to improve healing. It will take six to twelve weeks for the breasts to reach their final shape.

How Much Does a Mastopexy Cost?

The total cost of a mastopexy will depend on the amount of work needed for the procedure. The number of hours spent for the procedure will also affect the total price of the breast lift. Since the procedure is purely plastic surgery, it will not be covered by medical insurance. Speak with our financing department to discuss available payment options.

Patient Testimonials

This was the best decision I have ever made. I met with Dr. Stefani and hired him & received a full mommy makeover. I had met with several doctors as well, as this was a big decision to make. Dr. Stefani made me feel the most comfortable and he has a great bedside manner. Also, to be completely honest after surgery …He exceeded my expectations. I almost cried after I saw what I looked like after surgery. I had 3 c sections prior and nothing was ever the same after that. I feel better than I did before kids and I wish I did this sooner. If you are even slightly hesitant …don’t be! Dr. Stefani is AMAZING.

Dr. Williams is one of the most caring and talented doctors I have ever met! I was diagnosed with breast CA 2 years ago and was referred to him for reconstruction after choosing to do a bilateral mastectomy. Boy was I scared !! He put me at ease right away with great information on what to expect along and seemed to generally care about me even though we had just met! I knew I was in the best hands! Now after 2 years, not to sound weird, I get compliments on my "new" breasts all the time, even my family Dr gave them a big WOW! Cherry on top, he did a Tummy tuck on me to even out new look, and also get compliments all the time!

Dr. Miguel is the absolute best!! I've had rhinoplasty in the past with another surgeon, and I came in for a consultation with Dr. Miguel for an alar base reduction (narrowing of nostrils). He was so honest with his answer, and he told me it was not needed. He said the procedure was unnecessary, and to leave my nose just the way it is. He told me all the things that could go wrong if I were to go forward with this procedure. I am so grateful for his honesty, and I appreciate his conservative approach. If you are looking for a rhinoplasty surgeon and want honest feedback with natural results, please consult with Dr. Miguel.
