Breast Plastic Surgery

What is a Breast Lift?

Dr. Joseph Perlman, a board-certified plastic surgeon at the Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre in Houston, specializes in breast lift procedures. This cosmetic surgery aims to enhance the appearance of breasts that have lost volume and sagged, often occurring after pregnancy, weight loss, or due to aging. While most patients seeking breast lifts are women, Dr. Perlman also performs the surgery for men who have excess chest tissue following significant weight loss or gastric bypass surgery.

Residents of Houston and the nearby areas can benefit from Dr. Perlman’s expertise in breast lift procedures. Some women may choose to combine the breast lift with a breast augmentation to achieve a more voluminous breast shape.

For those interested in the breast lift procedure, contacting Dr. Perlman at the Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre for a consultation is recommended. During the consultation, he will evaluate your natural condition, discuss your goals, assess your health, and carefully determine the most suitable approach to help you achieve your desired look.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, can be performed at any age. However, it is generally recommended that patients wait until breast development has ceased, usually around age 18. Additionally, it’s advisable to consider this procedure after completing all plans for having and nursing children, as future pregnancies may impact the results. Nonetheless, since mastopexy preserves the milk ducts and nipples, it typically does not affect the ability to breastfeed if one decides to have more children later on.

You may be a suitable candidate for a breast lift if you have concerns about the following conditions:

1. Pendulous and saggy breasts, regardless of their size.
2. Breasts that lack firmness or substance.
3. Nipples and areolas pointing downward.

Sometimes these conditions may be hereditary, and in rare instances, breasts may develop asymmetrically, with one breast being more firm and well-positioned than the other. Some women experience significant variations in the size and shape of their breasts. While a breast lift procedure can correct large and heavy breasts, it’s worth noting that the results may not be as long-lasting as when the surgery is performed on women with smaller breasts.

Breast Lift

Dr. Perlman incorporates acellular dermal matrix (ADM) grafts, human tissue grafts positioned beneath the skin and sutured to the muscle. This technique creates a supportive structure resembling a hammock or bra, effectively preventing implant migration or shifting. When you have your initial consultation with Dr. Perlman, he will thoroughly explain the breast lift procedure and address any inquiries you may have. Detailed pre- and post-operative instructions will be provided during this consultation and after the surgery is completed. It’s crucial to adhere closely to these instructions for optimal results and a successful recovery.

Recovery After a Breast Lift

After the breast lift procedure, Dr. Perlman will recommend wearing an elastic bandage or supportive bra for a duration of one to two weeks. It’s common to experience soreness and swelling in the breasts for several weeks, along with a potential burning sensation in the nipples. Typically, most breast lift patients in Houston can resume normal activities and return to work within approximately two weeks.

The healing process varies for each individual, influenced by various factors. However, you can rest assured that Dr. Perlman and his friendly, knowledgeable staff at the Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre will closely monitor your progress and provide support throughout every stage of the process. With numerous successful breast lift procedures and other treatments, we take pride in assisting thousands of patients in the Houston area to achieve their desired silhouette.

Breast Lift Options

Breasts that have lost shape and firmness, resulting in sagging, can benefit from a minimal-scar breast lift. With the passage of time, breasts tend to change, typically becoming more droopy and losing their natural bounce. Factors such as reduced skin elasticity, weakened muscles, and stretched tendons contribute to these changes. The breast lift procedure effectively addresses these issues.

Many patients seeking this type of breast lift express dissatisfaction with the loss of breast volume over time. In such cases, a breast lift in combination with a small implant can help restore lost volume while simultaneously improving the shape and position of the breasts. Whether performed alone or in conjunction with a breast augmentation, a breast lift can significantly enhance the appearance of your breasts, ultimately boosting your self-confidence and desire to feel more confident in your appearance.

Why it's done


Pregnancy can lead to stretching of the ligaments that support your breasts due to the increased fullness and weight of the breasts. This stretching can be a contributing factor to sagging breasts that may occur after pregnancy, regardless of whether or not you breast-feed your baby.

Weight fluctuations

Fluctuations in weight can indeed lead to the stretching of breast skin and a subsequent loss of elasticity. This can result in changes to the appearance and firmness of the breasts.


Over the course of time, the force of gravity can cause the ligaments in the breasts to stretch, which contributes to the sagging of the breasts.
