Elevate and Restore
Women concerned about sagging breasts can benefit from Breast Lift surgery (mastopexy) at our Atlanta and Alpharetta GA, locations. Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Asaf Yalif elevates the breasts and creates a more youthful, aesthetically pleasing contour with this procedure.
During the initial consultation and after a thorough exam, we will help determine if a Breast Lift is the right surgery for you. Ideal candidates for this procedure have:
Many of Dr. Yalif’s Atlanta Breast Lift patients also want to restore lost volume after pregnancy or other weight loss and combine the procedure with breast augmentation. A breast lift alone is ideal for women who don’t want to increase the size, but want to restore a youthful shape and position to their breasts.
Dr. Yalif performs Breast Lift surgery using general anesthesia. It’s considered an out-patient surgery, which means you’ll return home the same day as your surgery. You and Dr. Yalif discuss a number of issues at your consultation, including where he’ll make the incisions. This choice is based on the degree of breast sagging. Dr. Yalif offers 3 commonly used incision locations for Breast Lift patients:
Few Atlanta Breast Lift patients can benefit from a periareolar incision, which is used only for very minor sagging. The other 2 incision patterns are much more common. Dr. Yalif uses his experience and technical experience to minimize the appearance of scars and provides information about the best way to care for your incisions for fast and healthy healing.
It’s fairly common to combine a Breast Lift with one or more surgical procedures. Breast augmentation combined with a breast lift is extremely common, and Mommy Makeover procedures combine cosmetic breast surgery with body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck and liposuction.
All of these options can be discussed during the initial complimentary consultation with Dr. Yalif. Many women who have had this surgery report high levels of satisfaction and improved self-esteem.

With Breast Lift surgery, you’ll see immediate results in the changes to the shape and position of your breasts and nipples. The results improve as the swelling from surgery subsides. Recovery varies, especially if you combine a Breast Lift with another procedure, such as a breast augmentation, breast reduction, or tummy tuck. Nevertheless, we recommend patients perform some light activities, such as slowly moving around the room, within the first 48 hours of the surgery.
Avoid heavy lifting or strenuous activity involving the chest. Patients can restart their normal activities within 2 to 3 weeks, but strenuous exercise should not be attempted for 6 to 8 weeks. There is a myth that women who have breast lift surgery never have to wear a bra again. This is not true, as you will want to wear a bra to support the breasts and keep them perky.
It is also important to realize that the breast skin will continue to age regardless of surgical intervention. For best long-term results, proper garments should be worn to maintain the breast position. Women considering Breast Lift surgery travel from Atlanta and throughout Georgia to have Dr. Yalif perform the procedure.

Most Breast Lifts see a reduction in cup size by about one cup. Dr. Y offers solutions to reduce this reduction, including Breast Lift with implants or Breast Lift with fat transfer. While the cup size may go down, the appearance of the breasts will compensate by being higher up and with less skin laxity, so the breasts will often improve their appearance despite the loss of overall cup size.
The cost of Breast Lift includes fees for both surgery and anesthesia. If patients choose to add breast implants to the procedure, that can also impact the overall cost. Breast Lifts with Dr. Yalif start at $12,700, with the typical cost of a Breast Lift with implants at around $13,700 (depending on the type of implants).
Following a Breast Lift, your breasts will appear higher up on your body, but maintain a natural teardrop shape. Dr. Y will review your situation during your consultation and give you a better understanding of what results could be realistic given your frame and current breast status. You can also review our Before and After gallery at the top of this page to see examples of real-life patients following their Breast Lift surgery with Dr. Y.
