Reasons to Undergo a Breast Lift

Over time, skin and breast tissues lose structural integrity, leading to sagging and loose skin. 

Weight Loss

After weight loss, the skin is often injured and unable to retract to its original shape and form.


Pregnancy and breastfeeding often compromise the integrity of the breast tissues, resulting in a deflated breast.

Benefits of Breast Lift

Breast lift is a highly effective rejuvenating breast procedure that improves the appearance of breast ptosis. In addition to elevating the breasts, breast lift can help to achieve a rounder, firmer shape. Your breasts look perkier after the nipples are repositioned to the center of the lifted breasts and the nipples’ projection pokes outward rather than downward. You should also notice less chafing on your skin because sweat is more likely to get caught underneath drooping breasts.

Breast Lift Options


Dr. Goggin has mastered multiple lifting techniques to perform mastopexy. After examining your breasts, he can recommend the best approach for achieving optimal results. Techniques include:

Donut Lift (Periareolar)

  • Ideal For: Minimal sagging and slight nipple asymmetry
  • Technique: A doughnut-shaped area of tissue around the nipple is removed
  • Benefit: Produces inconspicuous scarring around the nipples

Lollipop Lift (Vertical)

  • Ideal For:  Moderate sagging and stretched nipples
  • Technique:  A lollipop-shaped incision around the nipple and down to the breast crease is used to remove excess tissue
  • Benefit:  Effectively lifts low-hanging breasts

Anchor Lift (Wise pattern)

  • Ideal For:  Severely sagging, pendulous breasts
  • Technique:  A lollipop-shaped incision that also extends along the breast crease is used to remove excess tissue
  • Benefit:  Provides the most significant lift to the breasts

Breast Lift Results

When performed by a top plastic surgeon like Dr. Goggin, breast lift produces long-lasting results. However, it cannot stop the aging process completely. If you maintain a steady weight, you may enjoy your breast elevation for about 10 to 15 years.

Breast Lift Costs

Each breast lift is customized to the needs of the patient, accounting for the size of the breast, the extent of the sagging, and the need to reproject/reposition the nipple. Accordingly, the price for breast lift depends on the specific techniques that Dr. Goggin utilizes to fulfill your cosmetic goals. During a consultation, he can provide a quote, with prices starting at $8,500. Since breast lift is an elective procedure, it is not covered by insurance, but Westside Plastic Surgery does offer financing options through CareCredit and PatientFi to help make care more accessible and affordable.

Complementary Procedures

Often, patients choose to combine breast augmentation with breast lift. Because the objective of breast lift is to elevate the existing breast tissue, it does not affect the size of the breasts. If you would like your breasts to be larger, it is easy for Dr. Goggin to add implants into the breast procedure to achieve the specific breast profile you desire.

Breast lift is a common component of most breast reduction surgeries that Dr. Goggin performs. Because breasts tend to look droopier after volume has been removed, Dr. Goggin takes care to elevate the breasts to achieve an appealing position and shape at their new size.

Some patients combine breast lift with body contouring procedures designed to remove loose skin. Since aging accelerates skin laxity not only on the breasts but also the abdomen, thighs, and arms, you may also want to have tummy tuck, thigh lift, or arm lift performed at the same time to further tighten and rejuvenate your body.

Breast Lift FAQ

Who are the best candidates for a breast lift?


The best candidates for a breast lift are those who have drooping or sagging breasts.  Ideal patients are also in good physical health, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations about the procedure.

Can I breastfeed after having breast lift?


Women who have had a cosmetic breast lift are at a slightly elevated risk for producing less milk, but most likely you should have no trouble nursing your child. That said, you may want to postpone having breast lift until after you have finished having children since pregnancy can stretch your breast skin again, negating many of the positive benefits of breast lift.

Does breast lift create scarring?


While Dr. Goggin is careful with his incisions to leave minimal scarring, some scarring can be expected. Fortunately, the incisions fade significantly over time, and they are often concealed along your bodys natural contours like the perimeter of the areola and the lower breast crease.
