Over time, breasts can lose their perkiness and begin to sag and point downward. The surgical solution for this is a breast lift. In Orlando, breast lift patients trust board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Armando Soto to reshape and reposition deflated and sagging breasts. The procedure removes excess skin from around the breasts and elevates and reshapes remaining tissues to create a perky appearance.  

Breast lift surgery does not increase the size of breasts but improves the position, shape, firmness, and appearance of low hanging or droopy breasts. Patients who undergo this procedure and wish to enhance their cup size can undergo a breast augmentation as well.

I am currently 6 weeks post-op after a breast lift and I am completely amazed with my results. Scars are minimal and can’t believe the shape Dr. Soto was able to achieve without implants! Couldn’t be happier!

Breast Lift Incision Types 

Women who contemplate undergoing breast lift surgery often wonder what the incisions will look like and how bad the scarring will be after the procedure. The incisions vary depending on how severe the breast sagging is and how much tissue volume is present. The most common incisions are: 

  • Along the line surrounding the areola – best for minimal sagging.
  • Along the line surrounding the areola, plus a vertical incision down to the natural crease below the breast – usually used for moderate sagging.
  • Along the line surrounding the areola, plus a vertical incision down to the natural crease below the breast, and another horizontal line following the direction of the breast fold – for moderate to significant sagging.

Your Breast Lift Procedure

As stated above, the extent of the incision depends on the beginning shape of the breasts, your goals, and the quantity and qualities of your skin and tissues. Dr. Soto will trim excess skin away, and the underlying breast tissues tightened. The remaining tissues and skin are then reshaped and closed using sutures. An implant placed underneath the chest muscle can supplement the lift, as it can provide additional support and provide the patient’s desired firmness. 

Breast lift surgery is performed using general anesthesia at our accredited surgery facility. On average, the procedure will take between 2 and 3 hours.

Breast Lift Recovery & Results

The recovery varies, as some patients will have had a breast lift in combination with a breast reduction surgery, or with augmentation using implants.  

Patients are encouraged to move around within the first 48 hours. Activities such as carrying heavy objects or any activity that puts pressure on the chest must be avoided. Most patients can resume daily activities within 1 to 2 days, but you should not attempt exercise and other activities requiring exertion or upper body strain until you are cleared by Dr. Soto.

There will be some scarring associated with this procedure, but with the proper care, scars will heal and fade to a surprisingly inconspicuous and faint appearance. Within a few weeks, swelling will subside, and your breasts will be more youthful, attractively shaped, and positioned higher on the chest wall for a natural and flattering appearance.

Breast Lift FAQs 

How do I know if I need a breast lift or a breast augmentation? 

The best procedure will depend on your aesthetic goals, the quality of your tissues and skin, and the current breast form. A breast lift will help correct sagging, drooping, or deflated breasts. After this surgery, patients are often happy with their breast size because the lift alone creates a fuller-looking breast. If the patient wishes to have more volume and increase the breast size, implants or fat transfer may be recommended.  

Before surgery, Dr. Soto will provide a thorough consultation and assessment. He will advise you if a lift alone is all that you need, or if an augmentation and a lift may be done as a combination surgery, or in stages. 

Does nipple repositioning happen during a breast lift? 

The nipple is often repositioned and resized during a breast lift so that it looks proportional to the newly shaped breast. When excess skin is trimmed away, a portion of an overly stretched areola (the colored skin around the nipple) is simultaneously trimmed away. The goal is for the nipple and areola to be within a normal size and position. 

How bad is scarring after a breast lift? 

When incisions are made to trim away the skin, scars are an inevitable part of the process. Plastic surgeons are experts when it comes to minimizing scarring with precise techniques when it comes to incisions and suturing. Dr. Soto recommends a post-surgery scar care program, and patients are strongly encouraged to follow the plan so that healing is healthy and quick.

Dr. Soto and his staff made my experience so much better than I thought it could be. They really think of everything to make you comfortable, they’re responsive and kind. I had a breast augmentation and came in with many concerns about looking fake, disproportionate, or having scars. None of those things are an issue in this case. I am 2 months post op and the size and shape Dr. Soto picked for me is flattering to my entire figure- very happy! 10/10

Dr.Soto and his team was the best. Hands down the best plastic surgeon in Florida. I had two procedures with Dr.Soto and I wouldn’t have chosen no one else. He’s knowledgeable, patient but very direct - he tells you the best options for your best outcome and reasons for his decision. I’m so happy with my results and it’s getting better everyday. A tummy tuck was the best decision he could have recommended. If I had choose to go another route I definitely wouldn’t be so happy with my results. Thank you so much 😊

Dr Soto and his staff of professionals made my breast augmentation experience smooth and comfortable from pre to post op! Romie was my nurse through our most of my experience (though I met other staff) it was nice to have that relationship building since the nurses are SO important to a successful surgery and recovery. My anesthesiologist was a fantastic woman that truly made me feel comfortable before and after my surgery! I felt very safe in the environment. The surgical room was very white and clean and though I remember being nervous, I could feel the warm and protective energy from Dr Soto & my anesthesiologist (whom I regret to say I forget her name!) the clinic provides EVERYTHING you need with an app & folder filled with thorough information for you and your caretaker. (It is very important to provide your medication, follow the diet and bring a responsible and trusted care taker to drive and chaperone your recovery). Dr Soto offers products to buy in house that will side in your scars healing beautifully. My scars are healing beautifully and I can honestly say that after years of research and numerous consults- I’m so glad I made the responsible decision to be cared by Dr Soto and his team. If you need time to save money then take that time to be sure you see the best and Dr Soto is the best. I went from a 32A to a 32C. The side boob, Under boob, & cleavage look fantastic! So natural but full looking. Thank you so much for changing my life and giving me confidence! -checking in right before halloween and its been about 6 months since my surgery and i just need to say im SO impressed with my results. I HIGHLY encourage using the products he sells for scar recovery because lemme tell you, they look beautiful! (I wanted to mention the comfortable gowns they give that are so nice and warm! love it! And did you know his logo was a design by his daughter!? so cute! keep up with your follow up appointments, im guilty of missing a few but the staff is amazing to get you back in when you can make it!)

Muy feliz con los resultados, la atención y el trato de todos los del equipo. El doctor Soto es muy profesional y sobretodo esta muy pendiente de todo tu proceso postoperatorio. Estoy bastante feliz en cuanto a proporción versus relación con mi cuerpo, solo me hubiesen gustado un poco mas pequeñas pero por gusto personal, confío plenamente en la razón del doctor. Muy agradecida con las enfermeras y el personal administrativo. 100% recomendado

It’s been an amazing journey, to say the least! There are no words that can explain how happy I am with the work that Dr. Armando Soto did.. He is truly “brilliant” and an amazing talent, blessed his hands!! I am super super happy with what he was able to accomplish with my tummy tuck .. It was the best decision I have ever made. It took me almost 2 yrs to find a great doctor I knew my abdomen needed to be worked on specially after having 3 kids and I am glad I waited until I found him! And off course let’s not leave his Staff behind.. they ROCK.. from day one until now they very helpful, knowledgeable ,professional and kind! What else can I asked for! 😃😍🥰 I will recommend him to everyone for any procedure!

Dr. Armando Soto and his staff are top notch. I had a breast lift with breast implant exchange 6 weeks ago and could not be happier with the results. I had my original implants placed by a different surgeon 14 years ago, and was never pleased with the results. I used Dr. Soto back in 2013 for another procedure and knew when it was time to change my implants I would be consulting with him. My results are AMAZING, Dr. Soto listened to what I wanted, answered all my questions and six weeks later I feel like a new person. The staff in his office are always welcoming and helpful too. You won't be disappointed and I can't recommend this practice enough!

I had a lower body lift done by Dr. Soto five months ago and I am extremely happy with the results. It has improved my quality of life in a profound way. Not only is he a perfectionist, and an incredible surgeon, he is kind and empathetic. My results are outstanding and I have minimal scars after only five months. He and his staff are always available if you need assistance or advice. He is hand down the best plastic surgeon

I had my first experience with Dr. Soto In 2017, he changed a set of implants that I have had for over 18 years and did a lift. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I was so thrilled with the results that my daughter and a couple of my friends went with him. This year I decided to remove my Implants and do a lift and of course, I went with Dr. Soto. He is truly an artist and his staff is so caring, Dr. Soto's bedside manners are outstanding, not to mention his state-of-the-art facilities. I also do my Botox and fillers with Aimee, she is so caring and a true artist. I’m always in awe of my results!

I cannot speak highly enough about Dr. Soto and his staff. I had a breast augmentation done in March and I couldn't be happier with the results. Dr. Soto and his staff were very welcoming, professional, and helpful throughout the entire process. They truly care about any concerns i may have had. Dr. Soto explained every detail of my procedure putting my mind at ease. My breast augmentation came out great and i recovered much more quickly than I expected. My results and experience far exceeded my expectations. Thanks Dr. Soto!

I had a combined procedure (Moxi, Nano, and BBL) with Amy Darlrymple, ARNP, in Dr. Armando Soto’s office in Orlando. The results were phenomenal and by far exceeded my expectations—all with minimal downtime. To say I am pleased is an understatement. I highly recommend Amy and Dr. Soto at Aesthetic Enhancements.

From start to finish, I’ve had the best experience with Dr. Soto and his staff. I went to Dr.soto for a breast revision surgery due to a severely encapsulated implant I’ve been living with for 10+ years. Today I’m 7 weeks post op and the results have exceeded my expectations. Dr.Soto has restored my confidence and love for my body. I am SO grateful for him and the wonderful nurses! ❤️

We had the best services from Dr.Soto and his office and technical team. Loved the result of my breast reduction. Dr. Soto does an excellent follow-up. Then my husband had the 360 procedure for excess skin removtal after his bariatric a few years ago. Dr. Soto is a perfectionist plastic surgeon. At least three friends of us had surgery with him once they saw our results. All of them very happy either.
