Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Have you experienced sagging breasts because of pregnancy or changes in body weight, aging or the effects of gravity? This is a common problem for many women because the resulting changes in breast size and shape are hard to reverse naturally, as skin and supporting tissue are stretched.
Dr. Azul Jaffer, a Houston Breast Lift surgeon, has helped many patients achieve a fuller, more youthful appearance through breast lift surgery (or mastopexy). This surgery features the removal of excess skin and the raising and natural-looking reshaping of breasts.
Not sure what to expect from your procedure? Dr. Jaffer will discuss the various options for helping you achieve the results you’re after (including breast augmentation). Dr. Jaffer is a double board-certified Houston plastic surgeon, whose practice has grown through the results he’s achieved for his clients.
At your consultation, Dr. Jaffer will personally discuss your desired breast lift outcome, and provide his own professional analysis as a plastic surgeon and artist. He listens carefully to every patient in order to achieve a look that is always natural, beautiful and ideal for each patient. You can also trust that Dr. Jaffer will provide honest, caring advice – your partner in getting the best results from your procedure and for life.
Whether you know exactly what you want, or if are looking for a doctor who will help with guidance and suggestions, you’ll immediately feel comfortable discussing your procedure with him. Dr. Jaffer is highly respected by his patients and peers. This is the reason why other plastic surgeons refer some of their clients directly to Azul Plastic Surgery, and also why most of his patients come from referrals.
While the information here is provided to help you better understand the breast lift procedure, there is no substitute for a consultation with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon.

The procedure is done on an outpatient basis under sedation and local anesthesia or MAC (Monitored Anesthesia Care). The design of the incisions can vary but usually include incisions around the nipple-areolar complex and in the crease under the breast. The nipple-areolar complex is repositioned higher, the excess skin is removed, and the breast is reshaped in a pleasing contour and in a more normal position.
The patient goes home in a bra with only light dressings over the incision lines. The bra is worn as a “dressing” for 2-3 weeks. Sutures are usually completely removed within 2-3 weeks. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Light activities may be started in 7-10 days.
