If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts, then breast cosmetic surgery may be an option for you. A breast lift is usually done to lift sagging or loose breasts while a breast enlargement is performed to increase the size of your breast. Some women choose to undergo both surgeries at the same time.

While any type of major surgery carries risks such as bleeding, infection and an adverse reaction to anesthesia, the potential complications specific to each surgery is covered in the following pages.

If you are a physically and psychologically healthy woman with realistic goals, then you may be an ideal candidate for breast cosmetic surgery. As with other forms of cosmetic surgery, you need to have a clear and realistic idea of why you want the surgery and what you hope to look like after it. It’s especially important to discuss these honestly with your surgeon.

A breast lift, technically known as mastopexy, is a surgery to change the shape of your breasts. The goal of this procedure is to temporarily offset the natural effects of age and gravity by raising the breasts, giving them a more youthful appearance. Some women also undergo breast enlargement at the same time.

Women most often get this procedure on an outpatient basis, meaning there's no overnight stay. It takes approximately two to four hours and is usually done under general anesthesia. 

There are a range of techniques for performing breast lifts. According to the University of Rochester Medical Center, the most common breast lift procedure begins with the surgeon making a three-part, anchor-shaped incision. The first incision circles the areola (coloured area around your nipple); the second extends down from the areola to the crease beneath the breast; the third horizontally follows the natural curve of the crease beneath the breast.

Once the incisions are made, the surgeon removes the extra skin, moves the nipple and areola up to a higher position, and lifts your breast tissue up into the desired location. The doctor will then close the incisions with stitches, surgical tape or skin adhesives. You may have tiny drains in your breasts for 24 to 48 hours.

After the operation, expect to be uncomfortable for a few days. Your doctor will usually recommend that you wear a bra or have a special dressing in place to provide the support you will need during your recovery. Your breasts will be swollen and bruised for about two weeks and you'll likely feel pain and soreness around the incisions, which will be red or pink for a few months. The size and shape of the breast will continue to improve as time passes and the swelling goes down.

All surgery involves the risk of infection, bleeding and a negative reaction to anesthesia. Serious complications of this specific surgery are rare, but they may include:

  • Loss of feeling in the nipples or breast
  • Scarring
  • Irregularities or asymmetry in the shape and size of the breasts

This surgery does not affect your ability to breast feed.
