Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
As a woman who's looking to enhance her appearance, you probably work hard to stay in healthy shape. But even if you're fit and healthy, your breasts can start to look less than satisfying over time. Maybe you've caught a glimpse of yourself in the mirror recently and noticed that your curvy profile looks different than it did years ago. Pregnancy, nursing, heredity, age, and weight loss are all factors that might cause a woman to choose breast lift surgery in Tampa / St. Petersburg.

Is Breast Lift Surgery Right for You?
You might be a candidate for breast lift surgery if:
- You maintain a healthy, stable weight
- Your breasts have a flatter, elongated shape or visibly stretched skin
- When your breasts are unsupported, your nipples rest below the breast crease
- Your nipples point downward
- One breast is lower than the other
Some women combine their breast lift surgery with breast augmentation in Tampa to both reposition their breasts and add volume for a more attractive, balanced appearance. Breast lift surgery also can be combined with procedures such as liposuction or a tummy tuck in Tampa.

Recovery after Breast Lift Surgery
Dr. Benedetti reminds his patients that cosmetic surgery is still surgery, and it's important to do your homework so you can achieve your aesthetic goals. The first way to ensure that your breast lift is successful is by choosing a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Benedetti. Follow his specific instructions in the care of your breasts after surgery and you should be able to enjoy your results for many years to come.
Allowing a full week for rest after your breast lift surgery will allow your body time to replenish its energy. Most patients will wear a gauze wrap over their breasts for 2 days after surgery, and also will be fitted with a surgical support bra. Dr. Benedetti recommends limiting exercise and strenuous activity in the 3 to 4 weeks following your surgery.
How Long Will the Results of My Breast Lift Last?
Provided you maintain the same weight that you started with before your surgery, do not become pregnant after your procedure, and maintain a healthy lifestyle, you can expect your breast lift to last for many years.
