Breast lift surgery reshapes and raises sagging breasts. The surgery can also be utilized as a way to reduce the size of the areolae. Women usually get this procedure on an outpatient basis, meaning they are free to go home after the surgery rather than staying at a hotel overnight. Typically, the procedure takes about three hours to complete and is done under general anesthesia.

Changes Plastic Surgery also offers a new lifting technique known as the surgical mesh internal bra. During this, a synthetic mesh is placed to offer temporary support. As scar tissue forms around the mesh, it further strengthens the region. The mesh dissolves, leaving the strong and supportive scar tissue, which forms the internal bra inside the skin envelope.

The patient below underwent bilateral breast augmentation with a vertical mastopexy.
