Perky & Firm
A Breast Lift, or a Mastopexy, is a surgery done to enhance the appearance of the breasts. This enhancement can include trimming away excess skin, “lifting” the breasts into a more youthful position to eliminate sagging, and restoring any lost firmness that may have occurred due to age.
A Fresh Start
Mastopexy is low-risk, low-pain, and yields permanent results. A Mastopexy is an excellent option for individuals looking to restore a more youthful, flattering shape to their breasts. Sagging breasts can occur due to age, breastfeeding, genetics, or gravity. No matter the cause, Dr. Garza can help.
Good candidates for a Mastopexy are adults who struggle with sagging breasts and are in good overall health, have no underlying medical conditions, and have realistic expectations for their post-Breast Lift appearance. Breast lifts do not add extra volume but restore what you already have. Dr. Garza can help you find the best procedure to achieve your goals during your consultation. You should not get a Mastopexy if you are currently pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any medical conditions that could prevent you from healing properly.
Mastopexy surgeries work by making small incisions around the breast to pull excess breast tissue up and back into a more youthful position on the chest. This is done by pulling the skin taut before removing any excess, repositioning the breast tissue into the desired position, and closing the incisions.
Dr. Garza is available to you before, during, and after your surgery to ensure that your needs are met. Specializing in breast surgeries such as the Breast Lift San Antonio plastic surgeon, Dr. Garza, provides natural-looking results that rejuvenate the appearance and self-confidence for an optimally fulfilling life.

Restoring Your Natural Beauty
If you smoke, you will need to quit at least six weeks before your surgery. Two weeks before your Mastopexy, you should avoid alcohol, blood-thinning medications, and an unhealthy diet. Dr. Garza will let you know during your consultation if there is anything else you should avoid that is specific to you.
When you arrive for your procedure, you will be asked to change into a medical gown to maintain a sterile environment for your procedure. Your breasts and surrounding tissue will be cleaned thoroughly to avoid any chance of infection. After checking to make sure you are all set and have no questions before getting started, Dr. Garza and his team will administer a general anesthetic that puts you to sleep, so you do not feel anything during your San Antonio breast lift.
Once you are asleep, Dr. Garza will begin making incisions around your breasts that will have been pre-determined during your consultation. These incisions will be used to shape and remove excess skin. Once all excess skin is removed, and your breasts are set into their desired height and position, Dr. Garza will close your incisions and wake you up.
Nothing Short Of Excellence
After your procedure, you should avoid smoking, alcohol, anti-inflammatory or blood thinning medications, unhealthy diets, strenuous activity, and lifting anything above ten pounds for the first two weeks. You will likely experience some swelling around the incision sites, but this will fade almost completely within about six weeks.
Laying on your back for the first three to four weeks when you sleep is highly recommended. Most people feel confident enough to return to work within a week or two once a significant amount of swelling has gone down. Full results of your Mastopexy will appear anywhere within four to six months or could even take up to a year, depending on how your body heals.
Dr. Garza will check in on you throughout your entire experience, from consultation to recovery. He will ensure that everything is done to your satisfaction, and he will answer your questions one-on-one. Schedule your consultation today, knowing you’re in the best hands.
Unfortunately, a Mastopexy will leave behind some scars at the incision sites. However, your incisions are placed strategically to allow for the most natural healing possible, and your scars will be thin and hardly noticeable. There are also many other options for reducing the appearance of scarring besides letting them fade with age, including laser treatments or topical creams.
Since you will be under anesthesia for the entire procedure, you will not feel a thing. You may experience some slight soreness around the incision sites during the recovery process and will receive the proper pain medication to keep you comfortable during your recovery.
Most patients report no significant change in sensation once fully recovered. It’s common to have hypersensitivity around the nipple area, but once swelling subsides, this returns to normal. Sensual sensation is usually maintained.
Breast lift procedures are considered low-risk. Some possible risks include bleeding or infection at the incision sites, hematoma, nerve damage, bruising, and scarring. Following proper post-procedure instructions given by Dr. Garza will ensure that your chances of experiencing any risks are very low.
The cost of a breast lift is about $8,000 on average, but the cost of your Mastopexy could vary drastically. Every patient and procedure is different, so the best way to get an accurate price for your procedure is to schedule your Mastopexy consultation with Dr. Garza.
Unfortunately, insurance will not cover breast lifts unless they are deemed medically necessary. Dr. Garza or a member of his team will be able to answer any questions you may have regarding costs, payment, and financing of your procedure during your consultation.
You will be put under general anesthesia for your procedure, which means that you will not be advised to drive afterward. You should arrange for someone to pick you up after your procedure is complete to ensure the safety of yourself and others.
