long wanted to get a breast lift – mastopexy – but worried I’ll spend thousands and end up with the same saggy breasts i started with. Am i right to be concerned?

A: How long do breast lift results last

It is difficult to answer this question because there are so many variables involved with a mastopexy or breast lift (skin quality, breast tissue, type of procedure, age of patient, etc.)

In general, a mastopexy can be expected to last 10-20 years provided you maintain your body weight and wear bras more often than not. A pregnancy after a breast lift could compromise your result and leave you in a position where you need a second procedure to correct your nipple position and improve your breast shape.

During a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon, all your questions can be answered more clearly once the surgeon has an opportunity to examine you.
