Raising the Breasts Higher for the Philadelphia Area
As we age, skin can lose its elasticity, causing breasts to sag and lose their shape over time. Pregnancy, weight loss, and genetics can also affect the shape of the breasts, making your body appear older than you actually feel, even for those who are dedicated to a healthy and fit lifestyle. A breast lift at the Philadelphia area’s Chapin Aesthetics can address these unwanted changes.
Known medically as a mastopexy, a breast lift is a surgical procedure that aesthetically modifies your breasts by reshaping the breast tissue. Breast lift surgery can make your breasts feel firmer and look younger. Dr. Scott D. Chapin may remove excess skin and breast tissue, reposition the nipple, and recontour the breast tissues into a more youthful shape. A lift can also be used to reduce the size of the pigmented skin around the nipple, known as the areola. Breast lift procedures are commonly combined with breast augmentation to increase fullness and achieve an optimal breast shape.
Breast lifts can:
- Restore your breast shape and position
- Rectify uneven or downward-pointing nipples and overly large areolas
- Reduce your discomfort correlated with sagging breasts
- Increase your confidence and self-esteem
Meet Dr. Scott Chapin

His national reputation and commitment to excellence make him a top choice for Doylestown and beyond.
Our Customized Approach to a Breast Lift
To best address the problem of breasts that have lost volume and have begun to sag, Dr. Chapin offers his patients the option of breast lift in conjunction with augmentation. This combined procedure is also known as augmentation mastopexy or breast lift with breast implants. The breast tissue is lifted and tightened as in a traditional lift, but then an implant is inserted in order to restore volume and fullness to the breasts. Often, this combination procedure can yield more youthful and natural-looking results than breast lift surgery alone. During your consultation with Dr. Chapin, you can review photos of breast lift surgery with and without implants and discuss your overall goals and concerns to help achieve your desired look. You can also discuss breast lift cost and other specifics.
The Day of Your Breast Lift Procedure
General anesthesia is used for Dr. Chapin’s breast lift patients, who will have the procedure done at a Bucks County or Montgomery County AAAA Certified Facility. On the day of the procedure itself, Dr. Chapin and members of his experienced team will go over the surgery details and be sure any further questions you may have are answered before the surgery begins. Generally, breast lift surgery takes about an hour and a half to perform. To maximize your comfort, you will get detailed instructions and comprehensive post-surgical care.
Breast Lift Recovery
You may experience the feeling of pressure or discomfort for one to three days after your procedure. Although you will be mobile, it may be difficult to lift your arms. Generally, people can return to a sedentary job five to seven days after surgery. Light workouts can be initiated two weeks after surgery, and high-impact exercise three to four weeks after surgery. Dr. Chapin will provide complete preoperative and postoperative care instructions. He will monitor and advise when patients can gradually resume their daily
activities, including exercise.
