What is a Breast Lift Banner

What Is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgery that raises 
and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to create new contours. It also involves repositioning the nipple and areola to make them look more aesthetically pleasing. Breast lifts are often combined with breast augmentation to achieve even better results. The goal of this surgery is to give the breasts an uplifted, firmer, and more youthful appearance.

Types of Breast Lift

Breast augmentation surgery offers various options for implants, each with its own characteristics and advantages. Here are the different types of breast implants for your augmentation surgery:
Types of Breast Lift Crescent Banner


The surgeon makes a small crescent-shaped incision above
the areola, removes a tiny bit of skin, and closes the incision. This allows for a very mild lift.
Types of Breast Lift Donut Banner

Donut (Benelli)

An incision goes around the outer edge of the areola. Dr. Bailey

removes skin from the surrounding area and tightens the underlying tissue to reshape and raise the breast.

Types of Breast Lift Lollipop Springfield Banner

Lollipop (vertical)

The surgeon makes an incision around the areola and down

vertically to the breast crease. By removing loose skin, the doctor can restructure the breast, putting it higher on the chest and creating a youthful shape.

Types of Breast Lift Anchor Banner


The technique is the most comprehensive. It includes

an incision circling the areola, extending down from the areola to the breast crease, and running along the crease. This allows extensive reshaping of the breast through the removal of excess tissue.

Breast Lift Procedure

General Anesthesia

The breast lift is performed under general anesthesia to keep the patient comfortable and pain-free. We administer medication through an IV line and monitor vital signs throughout surgery. Once the patient is fully under anesthesia, Dr. Bailey begins the procedure.
The surgeon makes one of the four types of incisions: crescent, donut, lollipop, or anchor. The incision sites and patterns vary depending on the technique used, the amount of sagging, the size of the areolas, and the patient’s anatomy.
The surgeon lifts the breast tissue and removes any excess skin. The nipple and areola are repositioned to a higher, more optimal position. The underlying breast tissue is reshaped to create a perkier look, and internal stitches are used to support the new breast contour.
Dr. Bailey closes the incisions with sutures. Additional surgical tape, skin adhesive, or bandages may be applied to support the breasts as they heal.

Add-On Procedure: Breast Augmentation

Many women choose to undergo breast augmentation as a complementary procedure at the time of lift surgery. Adding implants can help to restore lost volume. Breast implants come in various sizes and types, including silicone or saline, round or shaped. When combined with a lift, they can add fullness to the upper part of the breast and help to fill out loose skin 
in the lower part. The implants also provide additional support to keep 
the breasts from sagging again over time.
Recovery From Breast Lift Banner

Recovery From Breast Lift

Patients are likely to have bruising, soreness, and swelling for a few days following mastopexy. These symptoms may last several weeks. 
A surgical bra is recommended for about 7 days; a support bra is then worn continuously for the following months. Stitches are removed after 1 to 2 weeks, but exercise and other strenuous activities should be avoided until Dr. Bailey believes the patient to be sufficiently healed. Most people return to work within 7 days after breast surgery.

Benefits of Breast Lift

When considering a breast lift, it can be helpful to understand the potential benefits of this procedure:

Improves appearance

By lifting, firming, and enhancing shape, 
a lift can make breasts look and feel better in clothing and swimsuits. It can boost confidence and improve body image.

Supports breasts in the long term

Underlying tissues are tightened to provide lasting support for the new breast shape and position achieved through mastopexy. Results are meant to be long-lasting, though additional plastic surgery may eventually be needed to combat aging.

Provides symmetry

If one breast is more ptotic (sagging) than the other, a lift can reduce the discrepancy between them. It essentially levels out the position of the nipples and overall breast contour to create a symmetrical look. This procedure is often performed during breast reconstruction.

Improves breast shape

By removing stretched-out, excess skin and tightening supportive tissues, a lift can give breasts a more youthful contour and profile. They become perkier, fuller, and more proportionate with the rest of the body.

Corrects ptosis (sagging)

The surgery addresses the problem 
of drooping breasts. It raises breasts that have begun to descend lower on the chest wall.

Cost of Breast Lift
in Springfield, MO

The cost of breast lift in Springfield ranges from $4,000 to $10,000. When budgeting for this procedure, patients need to consider the surgeon’s fee, hospital or facility expenses, anesthesia, and costs for post-surgery garments and follow-up appointments. The final price can vary considerably based on the extent of the lift and whether the patient needs any additional procedures done at the same time, such as implants or a breast reduction. At Bailey Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Centre, we offer flexible financing to make this surgery accessible for all women who want to make their breasts look youthful.

The entire office staff has always made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I truly feel like they care about me and I’m not “just another patient”. I am always 💯 pleased with my results. Dr. Collin Bailey is the BEST!! His unmatchable expertise keeps me coming back!!!!

Breast Lift & Implants
“I was intimidated when I first came in but I was greeted at the door and Dr. Bailey’s staff was so nice and made me feel so welcomed. When I was having my consultation I felt insecure about myself but Dr. Bailey and his staff made me feel at ease. They were willing to tell me all my options and explain the procedure thoroughly. I am so happy I moved forward with a breast lift and my implants are a perfect size as well. I am feeling and looking better than ever! I have more confidence and overall feel better about myself.
