Breast Lift in Draper, UT

A breast lift (mastopexy) is a surgical procedure that reshapes the breasts by reducing excess skin and tightening the tissues to create a perkier, more youthful appearance. This cosmetic breast surgery is typically best for women who have lost breast shape and volume and who are experiencing breast sag due to pregnancy, weight loss, or aging. Dr. Dino Maglic, an experienced plastic surgeon in Draper, UT, is pleased to perform breast lifts at Maglic Plastic Surgery. By integrating the latest methods, Dr. Maglic can choose the proper technique according to the degree of sag present, keeping in mind the desired result.

Breast lift surgery usually takes about 2 – 4 hours and is performed with general anesthesia at our Draper, UT practice. The exact amount of time your surgery might take will depend on the size of your breasts, the level of sagging, and how much tissue needs to be removed. The method used for cosmetic breast lift surgery typically falls into two categories — the technique is defined by the location and type of the incision. Dr. Maglic will make an incision before removing any loose skin, fat, and other tissues. The skin is then pulled tight, and the breasts are positioned higher and lifted so they appear healthy and younger. In most situations, the size of the areola is decreased to match the new placement and shape of the breast. If you're undergoing breast augmentation to go with your mastopexy, Dr. Maglic may place your implants at this time. If a breast lift is the only procedure being performed and if size and shape are a worry, silicone or saline implants can be done at a different date.

It's not unusual for a patient to come in thinking that she needs breast augmentation when a breast lift is actually more appropriate for her needs and goals. If your breasts are sagging or losing their shape, consider the benefits of breast lift surgery, such as:

  • Lifts the breasts into a higher, perkier position
  • Tightens skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and skin ripples
  • Gives the breasts a firmer look and feel
  • Repositions the nipples for a more natural appearance
  • Can correct asymmetrical breasts
  • Can be combined with augmentation for a more complete transformation

We offer several different approaches to breast lift surgery at Maglic Plastic Surgery. The ideal approach for you will depend on the level of sagging you have and your aesthetic goals. The most common types of breast lifts are:

  • Periareolar ("Donut" lift): A periareolar breast lift is done with an incision around the edge of the areola. This approach is minimally invasive compared to other types of breast lifts and may be ideal for women with mild to moderate sagging.
  • Vertical ("Lollipop" lift): Two incisions are made during a vertical lift: one in a circle around the areola and another that runs down from the areola to the bottom of the breast — hence the name "lollipop lift." The vertical lift may be best for women with moderate sagging.
  • Inverted T ("Anchor" lift): The anchor lift involves three incisions: one around the areola, one that stretches from the bottom of the areola to the crease under the breast, and a third along the inframammary crease. This technique is often recommended for patients with significant sagging or those who want to combine their lift with a breast reduction.

Breast lift surgery has changed the lives of countless women in Draper, UT and all over the world. If you suffer from sagging breasts that are impacting your self-confidence or stopping you from enjoying the look you desire, a breast lift at Maglic Plastic Surgery may be the answer. During your initial consult, a thorough examination will be performed by Dr. Maglic, and your goals for surgery will be discussed. We will provide a tailored treatment plan to help transform your breasts. Please contact Maglic Plastic Surgery and speak to a member of our friendly team to schedule your consultation.

Dino gave me my body back! He did my mommy makeover in December of 2022 during his residency and I could not have had better results! He is truly gifted in his craft. I also had the privilege of working with him in the operating room and every time he would do a procedure the attention to detail was second to none, I knew he was the surgeon for me when I saw the results of his other patients. I wanted this procedure for the last 3 years and had consults with other surgeons, but never felt like they were seeing ME as an individual and my wants, but when I went to see Dino for my consultation, he addressed every question and concern I had, before I even asked. I was so impressed with his bedside. We did an implant removal, mastopexy, abdominoplasty, axillary roll removal, liposuction of the flanks and midline. I have worked with many surgeons during my career in the OR and Dino has the best energy in his OR, if he has to go to plan B or something unexpected comes up, he is calm and decisive and can pivot and adjust the plan to your individual needs. He is truly an artist and anybody that picks him as their surgeon will not only get a true artist, but also a surgeon that is genuine and truly cares about you!

How much does a breast lift cost?

During your initial appointment, Dr. Maglic will talk with you about your needs and goals before creating your personal treatment plan. After that, he can better estimate your costs. When done well, a breast lift can significantly enhance your body, so it's important to focus on having an experienced surgeon with years of training, like Dr. Maglic, rather than costs. To help make surgery affordable, Maglic Plastic Surgery will help you find low-interest financing.

Do I need a breast lift or breast implants?

Whether you should get a breast lift, implants, or both will depend on your specific concerns and goals. Often, a breast lift will enhance the form and fullness of the breasts without implants. In your consultation, Dr. Maglic will assess your physical condition and listen to your goals to help you decide whether you should get implants, a lift, or an augmentation with a lift.

Will my nipples be moved?

Generally, the nipple-areola complex will be moved up during a breast lift. If your areolas are excessively large or stretched, then Dr. Maglic can include an areola reduction in your surgery. Feel free to ask about this during your consultation so he can choose the ideal incision pattern to use during your breast lift.

How long will my results last?

With the right care, your breast lift results can last for years. Your breasts will continue to age normally, so you might begin to see sagging and loose skin in time. Factors such as significant weight gain or loss can change your results, so it's best to maintain a stable weight following your breast lift. Pregnancy or breastfeeding following a breast lift can also affect your results, which is why Dr. Maglic suggests patients wait until they are done having children to get a breast lift.

Can a breast lift fix asymmetry?

A lift may improve asymmetry in your breasts if they're different in size, firmness, or level of sagging. Dr. Maglic will evaluate the appearance and physical condition of your breasts during your consultation and discuss how a lift can help. During your surgery, he will shape the tissue so your breasts are equal in position and size for better symmetry.
