Breast Lift Surgery (Mastoplexy) Questions


What factors lead to breast sagging over time?

The main reasons that breasts sag as women age are: pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight gain and gravity.

Who is the best candidate for a breast lift?

Any women who would like her sagging breasts to appear more firm and perky. The patients who typically see the best results of a Mastoplexy performed by breast surgeon Dr. Mandraccia are those with realistic expectations and who are in good mental and physical health.

When can I return to work after a breast lift?

Most of Dr. Mandraccia’s breast lift patients in the Fort Myers area are able to return to work in three to four days (as long as your job does not require you to lift anything above your head)

Are the results permanent?

Over time, gravity may cause the breasts to sag more. But, if you do not become pregnant or gain a significant amount of weight, the results should last for many years to come.

Should I wait to have a breast lift until I am done having children?

Yes. The reason Dr. Mandraccia recommends that you wait is because pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause your breasts to sag again and reverse some of the results of the breast lift procedure.

Where will I have my breast lift (Mastoplexy) procedure?
