Take Back Your Body 3 Reasons to Consider a Breast Lift

Restore Post-Pregnancy Figure

Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding cause your body to go through a natural transformation. However, your figure may not bounce back to the way it looked before. A breast lift can enhance the perkiness of the chest and restore pre-pregnancy definition.

Tighten-Up After Weight Loss

Weight loss can significantly impact your appearance but may leave traces of your former size in your skin and figure. Plastic surgery is a great way to tone your figure and reward your healthy lifestyle.

Improve Youthful Definition

As you age, your skin loses elasticity, often causing the breasts to sag and droop. A breast lift tightens the skin around the breast mounds, creating a youthful shape and improving the tone and elevation of the bustline. 

A Closer Look at Breast Lift Surgery

Mastopexy, otherwise known as a breast lift, is a form of plastic surgery targeting the shape of the breasts. During a breast lift, Dr. Benjamin Boudreaux and Dr. Jeffrey Claiborne remove excess skin and lift the breast mound and nipple, resulting in a perkier bustline.
Illustration stating: Incisions are marked to remove excess skin and lift breast tissue. The nipple is removed and repositioned, and the areola may be reduced. The result is a perkier breast and a fuller cup.
Every breast lift at our Mandeville surgical practice is a custom-designed procedure tailored to your unique body type and cosmetic goals. We can also combine your mastopexy with additional treatments, like breast augmentation or abdominoplasty, to achieve the precise type of enhancement you desire.

Breast Lift Candidates

To qualify for a breast lift procedure, you must be in good health, not pregnant, and not planning on becoming pregnant in the future. Our plastic surgeons recommend waiting until you are close to your ideal weight before undergoing treatment. 

It is important to understand that a mastopexy will not significantly alter the size of your breasts. If you are looking to remove a substantial amount of breast tissue or supplement your bust, you may be better suited for breast reduction or breast augmentation.

Breast Lift With Implants

Sagging of the breasts and loss of volume often coincide, especially after childbirth and weight loss. While a breast lift can improve the definition of your bustline, we recommend implants if you wish to supplement your cup size. You can choose from saline and silicone-based implants depending on your body type and personal preferences. Drs. Boudreaux and Claiborne will show you different size and shape options to help you visualize your results and make an informed decision about your treatment plan.

Your Procedure Timeline

Your breast lift will take place at our certified, state-of-the-art surgical center near the New Orleans metropolitan area. The procedure consists of these basic steps:

Our goal is to make the smallest incisions possible to reduce visible scarring.
Our goal is to make the smallest incisions possible to reduce visible scarring.


You begin by receiving general anesthesia from our certified anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the procedure.


Next, our plastic surgeon will carefully create incisions. We start around the areola and may extend vertically down the breast and along the crease, depending on the extent of your procedure and your body type. Our goal is to make the smallest incisions possible to reduce visible scarring.


Through these incisions, we remove excess fat and trim away loose skin. If you choose to receive breast augmentation in conjunction with your breast lift, we will place your breast implants at this time.

Finishing Touches

Finally, we reposition the nipple to complement the newly elevated breasts and close the incisions around the areola. 

Recovery and Results

Although full recovery can take several weeks, you will notice a change in your breasts as soon as the bandages come off. As swelling and bruising subside over the next 10-14 days, the results will gradually become more evident. Dr. Boudreaux and Dr. Claiborne will carefully monitor your progress during several follow-up visits and assist you through every step of your recovery. If you have questions or concerns at any time, please do not hesitate to contact our office. Once you are completely healed, you can expect to enjoy your results for several years or more, particularly when you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
