WHAT TO EXPECT
It is natural tendency of breasts to become ‘droopy’ or ‘saggy’ with time. Factors such as pregnancy, breast feeding, and loss of weight may speed
up this change as the fibrous which normally support the breast become lax and the skin loses its elasticity as one gets older. Therefore, the breast envelope becomes larger while the volume of the breast tissues does not increase. The breast then succumbs to the effects of gravity and change in shape (becoming saggy) with more downward-pointing nipples.
Mastopexy is a surgical procedure to tighten the skin envelope surrounding the breast and raising the level of the nipple to produce a a more ‘perky’
In some instances, the volume of the breast tissue is just too small, and the breast tightening is combined with the insertion of an implant. This will usually be done at the same time, however, in some cases, it will be done in 2 separate operations to achieve the desired outcome.

It’s likely you’ll be able to head back to an office job after the first week. If your work requires lifting anything over 10 pounds, you may need to take up to a month off while you heal.
When you first head home from your surgery, your breasts will be wrapped in gauze bandages and supported by a surgical bra. You may also have small surgical drains to prevent fluid buildup.
Your surgeon will likely recommend wearing the surgical bra for three weeks before transitioning to a sports bra for the next three months. This prevents stretching the incisions, helps minimize swelling, and supports the tissue as it heals.
Your breasts will be bruised and swollen for the first few weeks, with swelling peaking around day three, and they’ll probably feel heavy and tight.
Your surgeon will give you aftercare instructions for changing your bandages and cleaning your incisions to prevent infection. They will also let you know when your drains and any stitches can come out at a follow-up appointment.
Until then, sleep on your back or side, avoid lifting heavy objects, and follow your doctor’s recommendations for when you can go back to your regular routine. You should be able to have sex at about six weeks after surgery, but some people need longer to heal.“Patients tend to do too much too soon, quite frankly, because they’re feeling really good,” says Dr. Nichter.
