Located in Dallas, TX, Dr. Matthew J. Trovato is a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in breast lifts and other cosmetic surgery procedures. He has helped many patients achieve the beautiful, natural-looking results they desire.

A breast lift, clinically known as a mastopexy is an effective plastic surgery procedure that addresses sagging breasts by lifting the breasts and enhancing their appearance.
To achieve optimal results, Dr. Trovato will first begin by assessing your breasts, listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and take pictures of your breasts to determine your best approach. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, and the underlying tissue and nipple-areolar complex are tightened, reshaped, and lifted. This gives your breasts a firmer and more youthful appearance. Some of our Dallas breast lift patients combine their procedure with either a breast reduction or breast augmentation if the need is there.
Breast Lift surgery is ideal for women whose breasts are affected by a pregnancy, breastfeeding, or significant weight loss.
Your breast lift downtime is considerably less and takes about five to seven days to recover than other similar breast surgery procedures. In addition, your pain management is handled with over-the-counter medication as needed. Overall, 93 percent of patients rate their breast lift as a worthwhile procedure.
Here are just some of the benefits you can expect from this surgery:
Ideally, a breast lift can benefit women whose breasts have begun to sag with age. Their breasts either droop, are elongated, or have lost volume and shape.
The sagging of breasts may result from pregnancy and breastfeeding, loss of weight, or the simple march of time. If the nipples point downward, a breast lift is probably in order. Women who plan on having additional children should not have a breast lift. The added weight gain and breastfeeding will negate the results of breast lift surgery.
If you are unhappy with your breasts’ shape, size, or position and want to improve their appearance, a breast lift may be right for you! You should be in good health and free from medical conditions that could impair healing. Women who plan on having additional children should wait to have a breast lift. The added weight gain and breastfeeding will negate the results of breast lift surgery, so the procedure should wait until after the last child has finished breastfeeding.
Here are some of the concerns you can address with a breast lift:
You may be an ideal candidate for breast lift, but the procedure requires an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon like Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Matthew Trovato. Dr. Trovato specializes in breast augmentation, silicone or saline breast implants, breast lifts, and mommy makeovers.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Trovato will physically examine your breasts and discuss your goals for surgery. He will discuss your medical history and ensure this is taken into account when deciding which techniques are best suited for your breast lift. He will also explain the procedure and provide an evaluation of the different techniques that may be used. Dr. Trovato firmly believes that a full understanding between patient and doctor is crucial to a successful surgery that accomplishes the aesthetic goals of the patient.
No two patients’ breast lift goals are the same – each patient requires a highly customized approach. During the consultation, Dr. Trovato will evaluate your overall health and determine the best combination of techniques to address your individual needs. Depending on your unique situation, he may recommend blending various techniques to achieve maximum results. Rest assured that when you come to our office for your breast lift, you’ll receive the highest quality of care and attention to detail.
Before your breast lift surgery, Dr. Trovato will discuss incision possibilities with you.
These can be dictated by the degree of sagging involved and other factors such as breast size and shape. One approach creates two rings around the breast areola in a doughnut fashion. This method is better for women with smaller cup sizes and establishes less scarring. A second approach is to make an incision around the areola and then downward, ending at the crease underneath the breast. This forms a lollipop shape. Finally, an anchor-shaped incision provides the best access for women with the most significant sagging.
With precision, incisions are made to shape the breasts according to the desired look and feel requested by the patient. The nipple and areola may also be adjusted for higher positioning or resizing as needed. Excess skin is removed to create a firm breast contour. Your breast lift surgery in Dallas will take about two to three hours but may take longer if you elect to have other breast surgery procedures simultaneously. In addition, small tubes are placed at your incision sites at the end of your surgery to help with the drainage of excess fluid and blood.
An anchor incision is most commonly used to address moderate-to-severe sagging. This approach involves making an incision along the bottom of the breast in a “U” shape, followed by two additional incisions around the areola and down to the base of the “U.” The excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is pulled up and inward to create a more youthful look. This approach provides greater access for tissue manipulation, making it possible to tailor the breast shape to your desired outcome. The anchor incision also tends to conceal scarring better than other approaches due to its placement along the crease underneath the breast.
The lollipop incision, also known as the keyhole incision, is ideal for women with moderate sagging. This technique involves making an incision around the areola and extending down to the crease of the breast in a lollipop shape. The nipple and areola can then be repositioned higher on the breast, which gives the breast a more healthy, youthful appearance. The lollipop incision technique also ensures less scarring than the anchor incision and allows more control of the breast shape while still obtaining an aesthetically pleasing outcome.
The circumareolar incision, also known as the “doughnut” or periareolar incision, is ideal for patients with relatively mild sagging. This technique involves making an incision around the areola and removing excess tissue and skin to reshape and lift the breast. The scarring from this method is less conspicuous since the incision is placed along the border of the areola and can be easily concealed. Additionally, this approach helps to reduce breast size, allowing for a more proportionate appearance.
Many patients opt to combine their breast lift with other procedures such as breast augmentation, breast reduction, or a mommy makeover. This approach helps improve your surgery’s overall outcome by combining multiple techniques into one comprehensive plan. Combining these treatments can also minimize downtime and provide a more natural-looking result. Dr. Trovato will discuss your options during your consultation and help you decide which approach is best for you. Whether it’s a breast lift alone or combined with other procedures, we can create the perfect plan to achieve your desired outcome.
Combining a breast lift with breast augmentation is an excellent way to achieve the best outcome for your individual needs. Combining these two procedures can restore volume and shape while lifting and reshaping the breasts. This approach helps enhance cleavage while reducing sagging and providing a more youthful, perky look.
Combining a breast lift with breast reduction is an excellent way to achieve a more proportionate look while lifting and reshaping the breasts. This approach can improve your shoulder, back, and neck pain caused by overly large breasts and creates a more natural-looking shape.
At Dr. Trovato’s practice, we use a comprehensive approach that combines state-of-the-art techniques and technologies with advanced artistic skill to achieve natural-looking results. Before the procedure begins, the area is thoroughly numbed with a local anesthetic for your comfort. Your breast lift surgery in Dallas will take about two to three hours but may take longer if you elect to have other breast surgery procedures simultaneously. During the procedure, Dr. Trovato will carefully evaluate your individual anatomy and tailor the technique to suit your desired outcome.
After your breast lift procedure, you will notice an immediate improvement in the shape, position, and appearance of your breasts.
You may have some swelling and bruising for a few weeks following surgery, but these should dissipate over time. It is also normal to experience some discomfort during recovery that can be managed with oral medications prescribed by Dr. Trovato.
You should avoid strenuous activity and exercise for the first few weeks after surgery, but you can gradually return to your regular routine as you heal. Patients can usually return to work in about a week but must avoid strenuous activity for about a month. The incisions will take several weeks to heal completely, and you will be advised to wear a special surgical bra for added support during this time. You may need to wear a supportive garment for the first few weeks of your recovery. We will provide detailed instructions on how to care for the incisions, and it’s essential to follow these instructions carefully to support proper healing. It is imperative that you give yourself plenty of time to recover after breast lift surgery.
It is also important to note that breast lifts do not stop the natural aging process, so it is vital to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle to prolong your results. Regular follow-up visits with Dr. Trovato are important for monitoring your progress and ensuring that you remain satisfied with your results over time.
Breast lift results are visible immediately but continue to improve with time as swelling subsides, and the scarring begins to fade. Once your bandages are removed, you will notice the lift in your breasts and a perkier appearance. Your final results will continue to evolve in the next three to four months. The risks involved are the same as any surgery, but the breast lift procedure is generally safe and uncomplicated. To maintain your results, it is vital to avoid significant weight gain. With proper care, your results will last up to ten years.
