Breast Lift in Knoxville

Breast Lift in Knoxville, TN with H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery


When gravity takes its toll on body parts, the breasts are often affected the most. Aging, weight loss, pregnancy, and genetics can all result in drooping breasts, which can be a source of embarrassment for women. A breast lift, or “mastopexy,” can restore a more lifted breast position. 

At H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery, we offer customized procedures to counteract gravity. A breast lift requires both medical expertise and an artistic eye. Our surgeons at H/K/B are recognized experts in all types of breast surgery, and in our accredited, state-of-the-art facility, you will be treated like family by our dedicated staff.

A successful breast lift can elevate the breasts, reducing sagging and lax skin. Mastopexy is ideal for correcting sagging caused by weight changes, aging, and breastfeeding. The procedure can also improve symmetry, shape, and nipple position for a more aesthetically pleasing outcome.

What Is Breast Lift Surgery?

A breast lift generally lasts one to three hours and is performed as an outpatient procedure with general anesthesia, ensuring you are fully asleep. Alternatively, local anesthetic with IV sedation is available, keeping you relaxed and partially awake.

The chosen method for your breast lift depends on your anatomy and desired look. The typical technique involves three incisions: around the areola, vertically from the areola to the breast crease, and horizontally under the breast. Our surgeons are adept at minimizing scarring.

What Can I Expect During Breast Lift Procedure in Knoxville, TN?

Once the incisions are done, excess breast skin is removed, and the remaining tissue is reshaped, elevating the nipple and areola. The areola can be resized if needed. Liposuction may be used to enhance the breast contour, especially on the sides.

Nipples and areolas stay attached to the tissue, preserving sensation and breastfeeding ability. Future pregnancies or breastfeeding could lead to renewed sagging.

Your Trusted Partner For Transformation

The H/K/B Way is a collaborative effort between all of our physicians and staff. Together, we are committed to providing our patients with state-of-the-art procedures, best-in-class surgical technology, and the most advanced methods for ensuring not just optimal results, but also optimal recovery periods.

How Long Does It Take to Recover From Breast Lift Surgery?

Our experienced staff will monitor your recovery and provide you with thorough instructions to help facilitate your mastopexy healing process. After a breast lift, you may go home the same day. Most patients take one to two weeks off work. You may need to wear an elastic bandage or surgical bra for a short time, and you can expect some soreness and bruising. Inflammation may last for several weeks but will gradually decrease. Over-the-counter or prescription medication can be taken for discomfort.

Avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise until permitted by your doctor. Sleep on your back until cleared to resume sleeping on your stomach or sides.

Are The Results From a Breast Lift Permanent?

Yes, breast lift surgery results are permanent. However, the natural aging process, gravity, pregnancy, and loss can cause the breast to sag. If you also have a breast augmentation at the time of your breast lift, the results will last longer.

What Is The Cost of Breast Lift Surgery?

Because all patients are different, it’s hard to estimate exactly how much surgery will cost. Not all women require the same treatment plan; there isn’t a universal price for a breast lift surgery. However, during your consultation with the doctor, you will get a better understanding of the overall price of the procedure and have a chance to learn about payment plans and methods.
