Mastopexy Breast Lift
A Breast lift is a plastic surgery procedure that helps droopy breasts by restoring the firmness and shape of the breasts. A Breast Lift is also known as a Mastopexy and in general raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. A Breast Lift in Tampa can rejuvenate the female figure with a breast profile that is more uplifted, firm and provide a more youthful appearance.
Am I a Breast Lift Candidate?
Typically, patients over 18 years of age are candidates for a breast lift. It is important to discuss with Dr. Harrell your complete health history. If you are over the age of 40, a recent mammogram will be performed prior to surgery. In order to determine if you are a candidate for a breast lift, you should schedule a consultation with our Tampa plastic surgeon, Dr. C Randall Harrell, for a complete and thorough evaluation.

Recovering from a Breast Lift
You will be given specific instructions as it relates to the post operative period, but generally you can expect 24-48 hours of discomfort. Pain medication is prescribed to you prior to surgery to minimize your discomfort. Many of our patients return to work within 3 to 4 days but strenuous physical activity is limited. Any concerns you have about recovery should be discussed with Dr. Harrell.
