Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is a procedure for raising saggy breasts, creating a better image as well as restoring firmness. Dr. Olmedo is able to accomplish this by eliminating the excess of skin, remodeling the rest of the tissue and the relocation of the breast and the nipple giving it a higher position. In some cases, he can also do other things in the breast lift surgery such as:

  • Areola and nipple size reduction
  • Eliminations of stretch marks
  • Asymmetry correction

For the majority of the patients who are interested in breast lift surgery, Dr. Olmedo can achieve amazing results by using different techniques like: 1) Periareolar mastopexy where the incision is made around the areola, 2) Vertical technique where the incision is made along the areola in the upper and lower part of the breast moving the areola up. In some cases, an extra incision is needed in the fold near the base of the breast. This is known as the inverted T incision used when the breasts are too saggy or there is a lot of extra skin.


You can be a candidate for breast lift surgery if you meet with one or more of the following conditions:

  • Saggy but satisfactory breast size
  • Breasts that lack firmness
  • Breast and nipples that look down, especially located underneath the breast fold

Sometimes these conditions are caused by inheritance. Sometimes one breast can developed in a different way from the other. There can be a difference in size and form from your breasts. Big and heavy breasts can be lifted, however the results don’t last as long as those with small breasts. Breast lift can be done at any age, but plastic surgeons recommend getting one done once your breast developing has stopped. Pregnancy and breast-feeding have a significant effect on breast size and shape. However, a lot of women decide to get breast lift surgery before having kids and deal with it later. In this case, milk ducts and nipples are left intact, breast lift generally doesn’t affect in any way for breast-feeding.


Most of the patients are covered up with a bandage over their breasts for 2 days after the surgery, the draining system is then removed and a special surgical vest, which is comfortable, is used for 3 to 4 weeks. You will be able to go back to work after a week. In most cases, you will be able to reinitiate your daily activities including light exercise after a couple of weeks. Vigorous exercise should be limited to 3 to 4 weeks after the surgery.


If you maintain the same weight before the surgery, or do not become pregnant after the surgery and keep a healthy lifestyle, the results of the surgery can last for many years. Some patients not only get breast lift surgery but also breast augmentation surgery for a complete breast makeover. These women need to change the position of their breast as well of increasing volume for a better image. Breast lift surgery can also be combined with other procedures such as liposuction or abdominoplasty, helping those mothers of all ages to get a new body.
