1.     Where are the scars after a breast lift? Will I be able to wear bikinis and low v-neck tops or dresses after a Mastopexy? Yes.  The scars following a breast lift are located around the areolar complex and in the lower portion of the breast where they will be hidden by your swim suit or clothing.  Dr. Castillo’s patients also find that because of the higher position of the breast following a breast lift, they are able to wear many clothing options that they were unable to wear prior to the surgery.

2.     At what age can a Mastopexy be performed?

A Mastopexy can be performed at any time after the breasts are fully developed.

Dr. Castillo performs a Mastopexy to correct sagging breasts more frequently on patients over the age of 30. It is at this age that the breast tissues can begin to suffer the natural consequences of gravity.   However,  after pregnancy and breast feeding, the breast becomes less firm and tends to sags, in which a breast lift may be needed much earlier in life.  Mastopexy may even be needed on a fully developed patient in their late teens to early 20’s. 

3. Can I breast feed a baby after having a breast lift? 

Yes.  The normal breast channels carrying the product of milk glands are undisturbed by this procedure and lactation should not be a problem following this procedure.

4.     Will my breasts feel natural after a breast lift?

Yes. At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center, G.D. Castillo, M.D. utilizes Mastopexy procedures to repositions the breast.  It does not change the consistency and / or feel of the breast tissue.

5. Will a breast lift make me look like I have breast implants?

No.  Although during the first few weeks of healing, your breasts may appear  more full on top, much like the look created by breast augmentation. This top fullness will resolve itself once the breast tissue relaxes and your breast will look natural.

6. Can Dr. Castillo decrease the size of my areolas at the time of a breast lift? 


7.     Does a Mastopexy require hospitalization after the procedure?

No.  All of Dr. Castillo’s cosmetic surgeries, including Mastopexies, are performed in his on-site surgical facility in Savoy, Illinois.  You will recover for approximately 1 1/2 hours after your surgery, and then you will be released to recover in the comforts of your own home without being exposed to many of the illnesses that one might be exposed to in a hospital. At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center, we are performing surgery only on healthy patients.

  40. Welcome! I hope you have found our Cosmetic Plastic Surgery blog “Anti-Aging With Grace” to be just what you’re looking for! I prefer one of two foundations. For a liquid foundation, I like Glo Luxe. It has a diamond technology that reflects lights creating a luminous, healthy glow to the skin. It is very thin so it provides maximum comfort and covers well. If you prefer a mineral powder base, try Glo pressed powder base with a setting mist. Your skin will feel as though you have nothing on but it provides good coverage to even out skin tone issues.
    Best Wishes, Roxanne Grace Hammond, Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center
