In some cases, perhaps the upper portions of the breasts have simply lost their fullness and projection. Therefore, the goal of Scottsdale Breast Lift specialist, Dr. Carlos Mata and Dr. Benjamin, is to make your breasts look perkier, fuller, and more youthful. Our practice implements short scar, wise pattern, full scar, and periareolar (donut) incision techniques.

Breast Lift Incision Types

Women who contemplate undergoing breast lift surgery often wonder what the incisions will look like and how bad the scarring will be after the procedure. The incisions vary depending on how severe the breast sag is and how much tissue volume is present.


Crescent Lift

The incision is made in a crescent shape along the top half of your areola. The main goal of a crescent lift is to align the patient’s areolas. It can correct very minor breast sagging. This procedure does not improve or correct the breast crease.

Donut Lift

The incision is made all around the colored part of the nipple: the areola. The primary goal of a donut lift is to reduce the size of the areola (colored part) and to correct tuberous breasts. It helps with minor lift.


Lollipop Lift

The incisions are made around the areola (like a donut lift) and down vertically to the breast fold. This lift raises the breast and repositions the areola/nipple. The perfect candidate is a patient who has a smaller to medium breast that only requires a moderate amount of lift.


Anchor Lift

The incisions are made around the areola, vertically down to the breast fold, and horizontally under/ on the breast fold (breast crease). Recommended for larger breasts or breasts requiring major lift, it can be performed on any breast size and shape. The anchor lift corrects the nipple position, breast shape, and breast sagginess.

Scars are inevitable during a breast lift, they can be small and hidden, and more visible. We are offering different scar treatments to help improve their appearance, learn more: scar treatments.

Recovery After a Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgeries are performed under IV sedation (light) or deep sedation in our Scottsdale, AZ surgical office. The recovery period will vary based on the types of breast lift and patients but varies from a few days to two weeks. Breast Lift patients are encouraged to move around within the first 48 hours; i.e., walking. Activities such as carrying heavy objects, or any activity that puts pressure on the chest, or exercising must be avoided for 6 weeks.

During the first week, it’s essential to wear a compression garment or surgical bra to support the healing process. Long-term recovery involves the gradual fading of scars and settling of the breast tissue into its new shape. It’s crucial to continue wearing a supportive bra and to maintain a stable weight to preserve the breast lift results of your surgery.

Generally, you can expect the cost of a breast lift in Scottsdale, AZ, to range from $4,000 to over $10,000, covering various expenses like the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, facility charges, medical tests, and postoperative care items like garments and medications.

Add-ons to a breast lift surgery

Breast lift AZ is a specialized surgical procedure focused on removing excess skin and lifting and reshaping sagging breasts. The breast lift surgery can yield remarkable improvements by eliminating excess skin and fortifying the breast tissue.

In addition to the core procedure, several add-ons can be included when you opt to perform breast lift surgery. These add-on options serve to amplify the results further, offering a more comprehensive approach to breast enhancement.

Breast Augmentation

If you desire a lift and increased volume in your breasts, combining breast augmentation with your breast lift surgery is a viable option. This dual procedure involves using implants to enhance your breasts’ fullness and shape.

VASER Liposuction

VASER liposuction can be added for those looking to improve the contour of the areas surrounding the breasts, such as the underarms or back. This involves removing small amounts of fat to create a more streamlined silhouette.

Areola and Nipple Reduction

If you find that your areolas or nipples are disproportionately large compared to your newly lifted breasts, an areola and nipple reduction can be performed as an add-on. This procedure resizes and repositions these areas to better match your lifted breasts.

Fat Grafting

Fat grafting can be an excellent add-on for those who prefer a more natural approach. This procedure involves harvesting fat from another part of your body and injecting it into the breast tissue. It offers a more subtle increase in size and can be customized to your preferences.

Who is a Candidate 
for a Breast Lift Surgery?

While many women consider this surgery for aesthetic reasons, it’s crucial to understand who is an ideal candidate for the breast lift Scottsdale.

The ideal candidate for breast lift AZ is a woman who is in good overall health, does not smoke, and is at least 18 years of age. She should also have realistic expectations about the outcome of the surgery.

Some specific factors that may make a woman a good candidate for breast lift Scottsdale surgery include:

One of the most common reasons women seek breast lift surgery is due to drooping breasts, often caused by aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss. Drooping or sagging breasts can not only affect your appearance but also lead to discomfort and self-esteem issues. If your breasts have lost their youthful perkiness, you might be a good candidate for a breast lift.

Excess breast skin is another factor that can make you a suitable candidate for breast lift surgery. This condition often accompanies drooping breasts and can result in a “deflated” appearance. A breast lift procedure can remove the excess skin, providing a firmer and more youthful contour.

Before undergoing any surgical procedure, a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon is essential. During a breast lift consultation with your plastic surgeon of choice, Dr. Carlos Mata, a.k.a. Dr. Scottsdale®, or Dr. Benjamin will determine your candidacy for the procedure based on your medical history and aesthetic goals. They may also discuss breast lift incision options, helping you choose the one that best suits your needs.

Breast Lift FAQs

The difference between a breast augmentation and a breast lift is that an augmentation adds volume and makes your breast bigger versus a breast lift (mastopexy) tightens and lifts the breast and nipples. Both surgeries can be combined if you are looking for a tighter and bigger breast. A breast lift is recommended if your nipples are low or if your breasts are sagging.

In most cases, women will be able to breastfeed, but there is no guarantee. Getting a breast lift can alter your ability to breastfeed. If you plan on breastfeeding in the future, it’s a risk to consider.

A breast lift will not alter the size of your breasts; it will only make them perkier. If you want to change your breast size during a breast lift, you can have a breast reduction to reduce your breasts or breast implants to add volume.

Breast lifts may last for years, especially when patients adhere to a healthy lifestyle. Any significant weight gain or additional pregnancies could compromise the results of the breast lift surgery. This is why it is recommended to have this type of breast surgery when the patient is at or near their target weight and does not plan to become pregnant in the future. As for breast implants, while they may not last a lifetime, they are manufactured to last up to 15 years or longer.

Due to the nature of the procedure, scarring is unavoidable. The incisions made during a breast lift are patterned to best meet the aesthetic goals of the patient. Although these incisions may be concealed under clothing, they will still exist. The good news is that over time and with proper scar care, they do fade and become barely noticeable. Most women find that their new shape and beautiful figure outweigh the scarring.
