Breast Lift

Achieve an elevated, more youthful breast contour.

Ask Dr. Taleisnik
A surgical procedure designed to raise the breasts to a more youthful position by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. Pregnancy, weight loss and the combination of aging and gravity can cause stretching of the breast tissues, resulting in drooping, sagging and loss of breast firmness. If needed, a breast lift can also decrease the size of overly enlarged areolas.
Depending on the needs of each patient, different types of breast lifts are available. In general, more significant degrees of sagging and drooping require a mastopexy with more extensive scars, while minor breast lifts may involve smaller or fewer scars. The scars usually fade over time, becoming much less conspicuous. Dr. Taleisnik will help you to determine whether you might benefit from a breast lift, and which type would be optimal.

Best Candidates

The best candidates for breast lift are:

  • Women with saggy breasts
  • Women who want perky breasts
  • Women with elongated, flattened breasts
  • Women with breasts at different levels or with different shapes
  • Women who want smaller areolas
  • Women having a breast augmentation may need lifting too



  • Improve sagging breasts
  • Create firmer breasts
  • Reposition nipples and areolas that are low or point downward
  • Improve elongated or pendulous shape
  • Can narrow excessively wide areolas
  • Can improve asymmetry


  • Change the size of your breasts
  • Round out the upper part of your breasts

Combination Procedures

Go Bigger

A breast lift paired with a breast augmentation helps with restoration of fullness with enhancement of shape and size, in addition to correcting drooping and sagging.

Go Smaller

A breast lift paired with a breast reduction helps with decreasing the weight and size of the breasts, and often discomfort in the neck and back, in addition to correcting drooping and sagging.

Patient Reviews


I was referred to Dr. Taleisnik by a friend and I am so glad I went to him. He was incredibly professional and took his time with me to make sure all of my questions and/or concerns were addressed. He weighed out my options and what would be best for me and my body. I knew I would go thru with him when his suggestion wasn’t the most expensive option. He really wanted me to be happy and I definitely am! I had a breast lift with implants almost 5 weeks ago and I couldn’t be happier! In fact, I referred a friend to him who has already had another type of surgery with him. The only person of his staff I personally dealt with was Linae (I hope I spelled her name right) and she was awesome, so knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. I had a couple questions right before my surgery and she emailed me back within an hour, I never felt rushed by Dr. Taleisnik or his staff in any way and they schedule properly so you are not waiting an hour which is always a huge plus. Bottom line is I am pleased with the process and the results. I will continue to refer my friends to him.
