What Is a Breast Lift (Mastopexy)?
Breast lift restores an attractive look to breasts affected by pregnancy, nursing, massive weight loss, or the effects of aging. After a breast lift, the breasts have a better shape and a more youthful position. The nipples do not point downward and any asymmetry between the nipple height and breasts can be corrected. Women feel sexier and more confident with their beautiful breasts.
How Much Does Mastopexy Cost in San Diego, CA?
The average cost of mastopexy at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center starts at $8,700. As part of your free consultation, Dr. Mozaffari explains your breast lift options.

Multiple financing options are available, and you can apply before your consultation.
How Is a Breast Lift Surgery Performed?
Breast lift surgery is typically performed through an incision on the bottom of the breast (in the crease where the breast meets the torso) and around the areola. The breast tissue is reshaped higher on the chest wall to improve the breast contour. Internal sutures are placed to support the new breast contour. The areolas are reduced in size and downward-pointing nipples are corrected. Excess breast skin is removed and the remaining skin is tightened over the breast mound, usually with no horizontal scars under the breasts.
Dr. Mozaffari also specializes in a breast reduction and lift for women who want smaller breasts and would have breast sagging after the tissue is removed.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from Mastopexy?
Most, but not all, women are back to work and daily activities a few days to a couple of weeks after their breast lift surgery. Recovery time varies from patient to patient based on what type of work the patient needs to be able to do. Patients are advised to take a couple weeks off from jobs that require vigorous activity. Patients with typical office work require only two to five days of downtime, depending on the amount of skin removed and how much discomfort they are experiencing.
What Results Can I Expect from a Breast Lift?
Our breast lift procedure before and after pictures show you the results of the procedure. You can see how the breasts sit higher on the chest. Although breast lift surgery is not intended to enlarge the breasts, there are some changes to breast size due to the tissue being compressed in a smaller skin pocket.
Am I a Good Candidate for Mastopexy?
Every breast lift patient is unique and has a particular area of concern. These concerns may include one or more of the following:
- Flat, sagging breasts
- Stretched-out, enlarged areolas
- Low, downward-pointing nipples
- One breast that sags lower than the other
Dr. Mozaffari examines each patient individually and inquires as to her specific concerns. He ask the patient to describe her ideal cosmetic outcome. This information is used to draft a personalized plan for treatment and achieve the “ideal breast.”
Can I Get a Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation at the Same Time?
Yes, breast augmentation combined with a breast lift is an option for many patients. To create bigger breasts, Dr. Mozaffari place silicone or saline implants, usually under the muscle. For smaller breasts, they use breast reduction techniques, including liposculpture, to eliminate excess skin, tissue and fat. The incision pattern may be modified during a combination breast augmentation-breast lift operation or breast reduction-breast lift operation to provide better access and visibility.
Many patients with minimal sagging and slightly small breasts can achieve a great result with a small implant and minimal periareolar scars, only. Patients can also choose our mommy makeover procedure for a combination of both breast lift and augmentation with body contouring surgery.
