What is a Breast Lift?

Over the past decade, the breast lift, also referred to as “mastopexy”, has been gaining a considerable amount of popularity. This suggests that many patients want to restore their breasts to their former appearance rather than make them look entirely different.

What are the Benefits of a Breast Lift?

A breast lift can improve your life in many ways. The aesthetic changes that a breast lift achieves can help restore your breasts to their young, pre-pregnancy appearance in a way that is incredibly empowering. This boost of confidence and sense of wellbeing can carry over into nearly every area of your life.

Why Choose a Breast Lift?

Pregnancy, gravity, weight gain, genetics, or the normal process of aging can cause the breasts to begin to droop or sag in an aesthetically unappealing way. This can leave you feeling anxious and self-conscious about your appearance.

A breast lift raises the breasts, giving them a perkier, younger-looking appearance. It can also be used to reposition and improve the appearance of drooping nipples or stretched areolas.A breast lift addresses a broad range of breast imperfections, including:

  • Pendulous, large breasts
  • Lack of firmness
  • Downward pointing breasts
  • Uneven breasts

Dr. Ramirez Gavidia: Performing with a Holistic Approach

Dr. Ramirez Gavidia never performs just one procedure. This is because he believes in a balance and comprehensive rejuvenation. When he performs facial contouring, he doesn’t just focus on just the cheeks or jawline. When he performs liposuction, he doesn’t just address one area. This is how he — as a surgeon and artist — carries out his procedures. He combines, adjusts, sculpts, and tweaks to achieve a full, balanced, harmonious result. This is one of the things he is known and loved for among his patients.

Am I a Candidate?

Almost any woman interested in counteracting the impact of gravity and time on the appearance of her breasts is a potential candidate for a breast lift. Patients that are planning on becoming pregnant in the future are advised to wait until they are done having children and breastfeeding to receive a breast lift. On average, this treatment works best for individuals with small to medium-sized breasts.

Your Consultation

If you’re considering a breast lift with Dr. Ramirez Gavidia, the first step is to schedule a consultation appointment. During this consultation, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will ask you about your treatment goals, your current state of health, and medical history. He will also examine your breasts and go over your aesthetic concerns. Taking all of this information into account, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will help you decide if a breast lift is right for you.

Surgical Details 

A breast lift is performed under general anesthesia The type of incision for your surgery will be discussed during your consultation. Once Dr. Ramirez Gavidia has created the incisions, he will remove the stretched-out breast skin. The breast tissue will then be lifted and re-shaped, the skin will be tightened, and the incisions will be closed.   


A breast lift requires about one week of recovery time. During this time, you’ll need to wear a surgical bra to help with swelling, support, and healing. You can expect your breasts to be bruised, swollen, and sore for 1-2 weeks. Avoid exercise until Dr. Ramirez Gavidia clears you, and remember that it’s very important that there is no pressure on your chest for several months after your procedure.
