Look and Feel Your Best with Michigan's Preferred Board Certified Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon
Breast lift surgery, also called a mastopexy, is a procedure where your breasts are tightened and reshaped to give you a younger-looking appearance. As you age, gravity causes sagging and drooping. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, as well as gaining and losing weight also contribute to droopy breasts. Breast lift surgery can erase the years in just one, simple procedure.
Recovery times vary according to each individual, but as a general rule of thumb, recovery time with limited activity lasts about 10 – 14 days. A complete return to normal activities resumes around 6 weeks.
To reduce swelling and offer added support to your breasts as healing occurs, you’ll be asked to wear a support bra or an elastic bandage for about six weeks.
As the swelling decreases, you’ll be able to see the results of your procedure immediately, and your happiness with your new look begins. A picture is worth a thousand words; see the results Dr. Trupiano’s patients have experienced by looking at their before and after photos.
While you are recovering, be sure not to lift excessive weight. Also, avoid any rigorous motions. These restrictions allow the incisions to completely heal. Be sure to follow all the doctor’s instructions to ensure the success of your surgery.
The final results of your breast lift will continue to appear over the next few months as the shape continues to settle. Any incision marks will also fade as time passes, but the positive results of your surgery will be long-term.

It’s easy to be misled by boards and certifications that sound “official”, but the above two are the only ones you should look for. The American Board of Plastic Surgeons is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), which has been approving medical specialty boards since the 1930s. The ABMS does not recognize any certifications by boards that have “cosmetic surgery” in its title, so avoid any clinic or doctor who advertises as a “board-certified cosmetic surgeon”.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that since the year 2000, breast lifts have risen by 70%, outnumbering breast implants 2-to-1, demonstrating that this procedure is a popular option for many women who have enough breast volume but would like some more perkiness.
