Pregnancy, breastfeeding, fluctuations in weight, and aging can lead to the natural loss of fullness in the breasts. Flat breasts that hang can be embarrassing and uncomfortable in certain clothing like swimwear or bras. Dr. Frati, one of the top-ranked cosmetic surgeons worldwide, performs breast uplifts to address these concerns and help women look and feel their best!
What is a Breast Uplift?
A breast uplift is a cosmetic procedure that lifts the breasts to a younger, more attractive position. This surgery, also known as a mastopexy, removes excess stretched skin and may include repositioning the nipple to a higher location. The remaining skin is tightened, allowing the breasts to sit in a more natural position on the chest. A breast uplift surgery can be combined with breast enlargement or breast reduction to achieve your desired outcome.
The best way to tell if you need a breast uplift is to examine the appearance of your chest. If you notice one or more of the following concerns, you may want to consider a breast uplift.
- Flat, long breasts – this is due to your breasts losing shape and volume
- Your nipples point downward or fall below your breast crease
- Asymmetry between your two breasts – this could be in size or be in regard to nipple position
- Your areolas are stretched and are disproportionate to your breasts
These symptoms can not only prove uncomfortable when wearing certain clothing, they can be a source of self-consciousness. We want each of our patients to be proud of how they look. A breast uplift is a rejuvenating procedure that helps our patients regain their youth!

A breast uplift will drastically improve your profile! The primary reason women seek out breast uplift surgery is because they are unhappy with the appearance of their chest. They wish to regain younger appearing, perky breasts. A breast lift can effectively improve:
- Drooping breasts that appear flat
- Breasts that lack firmness
- The position of nipples
- Stretched out areolas
If you are bothered by these changes in your physique, it may be time to consider a breast uplift.
This procedure is often sought after by mothers who are content with the size of their family and desire to get their pre-baby breasts back. Women who have lost a lot of weight or are noticing the effects of aging on their chest are also great candidates for treatment.
Ideally, a breast uplift candidate will have a stable weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The first step towards scheduling a breast lift surgery is a private meeting with Dr. Frati. This meeting is a great opportunity to ask all your questions and bring up any concerns you may have. Dr. Frati will address your questions and inform you of the breast uplift process. During this meeting, Dr. Frati will examine your chest, ask about your medical history, and ensure you are healthy for surgery. Our patient’s health and safety is our priority and this meeting is our opportunity to make sure the treatment is a good choice for you.
Preparation is a crucial step in ensuring a healthy surgery and recovery. Dr. Frati will provide you with detailed instructions on how to get ready for your upcoming surgery. These instructions will include filling and picking up prescriptions, arranging for rides, taking time off from work, setting aside an area of your home to recover in, and other steps that will set you off on the right foot. Please call our office for any clarification or to answer questions you may have.
General anesthesia is required to make the surgery more comfortable and safe. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Frati will apply multiple incisions along the breasts through which he will excise unnecessary skin and tissue. The breasts will be lifted and tightened to provide the appearance you desire. Nipples are often re-positioned and the areolas reduced in size to improve their proportion in regards to the breasts. This surgery often takes about two hours and may require an overnight stay in a hospital.
Your breasts will be swollen and sore after surgery.
Pain medications can be taken to control any discomfort. Patients often take two weeks off from work to fully recover. Dr. Frati will instruct you on what kind of bras to wear after surgery and when you can begin wearing underwire bras. He will also let you know when you can return to exercising and lifting. Within two weeks after surgery you will have your follow-up appointment. In this appointment, Dr. Frati will remove the stitches and inform you what to expect for the rest of your recovery.
Remember to get plenty of rest, go on brief walks, and stay hydrated so your body can heal well. Listening to your body and focusing on your health will help you ensure positive results.
Due to the nature of the surgery, you will see results right away. It will take a few months for the breasts to adjust to their new position and for scars to fade. The outcome achieved by Dr. Frati will last you years! Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and consistent weight will help you keep your results looking great for a long time.
A breast lift is often performed alongside another rejuvenating treatment. The two most popular treatments include:
Breast enlargement surgery is commonly combined with a breast lift. This procedure helps to restore lost volume and is completed with implants. Implants come in a variety of material, texture, shape, size, and projection. Dr. Frati will go over your options and together you will customize the best implants for your breast augmentation procedure. If you are looking to restore lost volume and rejuvenate your chest, a breast uplift with augmentation is the perfect solution!
Breast reduction is another surgery that is often combined with breast uplift surgery. Oversized breasts can be uncomfortable and painful. Reducing excess tissue can make a world of difference. A breast uplift with reduction can improve the contours of the chest as well as make your life easier. If you are bothered by the size of your chest or find that your breasts cause you pain frequently, a breast reduction may improve your quality of life.
If you are interested in combining one of the above treatments with your breast uplift, discuss your options with Dr. Frati during your consultation with him.
A breast uplift procedure is hand-tailored to your appearance and desired outcome. Because of Dr. Frati’s personalized approach, each patient’s breast uplift cost will differ. The best way to learn more about breast uplift surgery is to schedule a consultation or give our office a call today!
Insurance does not often cover breast lift surgeries unless they are apart of a reconstruction procedure. Breast uplift procedures are considered elective cosmetic procedures.
Breast uplift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that reduces stretched tissue in the chest.

Breast lifts last many years! With aging there is a natural, non-avoidable loss of skin elasticity but a breast uplift will help you maintain youthful breasts for a long period of time.
The cost of each breast uplift surgery is unique. The treatment is customized to your features and desired aesthetic. Dr. Frati will go over the cost of your surgery during your private consultation with him.
