A breast lift (mastopexy) is a procedure designed to provide women with perkier, more youthful-looking breasts. However, even when the surgery is flawlessly performed, complications may arise. The healing process may not unfold as planned, or the results may not be what the patient envisioned. In these cases, a revision surgery can provide relief and enhanced self-confidence.

What is Revision Mastopexy?

A primary breast lift is performed to elevate sagging breasts and reposition the nipples in a more youthful-looking location. Breast lift surgery is often performed in conjunction with breast augmentation or breast reduction or may be pursued after breast implant removal or en bloc capsulectomy. While the specifics of each patient’s treatment plan for the revision surgery will vary, the goal is always to restore an elegant and balanced appearance that is appropriate for the figure and that fulfills the patient’s original intention for improvement.

Reasons for Pursuing Breast Lift Revision


A breast lift is intended to combat breast ptosis (sagging) and reposition the nipples. If the results are not to the patient’s liking, a revision procedure can help accomplish their original aesthetic vision and deliver beautiful, natural-looking results.


Complications can occur after a breast lift that causes the results to appear asymmetrical. Changes over time, including those related to the aging process, pregnancy, and nursing, or weight fluctuations, can also affect breast symmetry, necessitating a revision surgery. 


Although all surgeries leave behind scars, some patients may be unhappy with the appearance of their incisions and request a revision. Dr. Burgdorf can perform a breast lift revision to ensure that scarring is less visible.

The Treatment Process

The breast lift revision process is similar to the initial surgery in many ways. Dr. Burgdorf employs the latest, most advanced techniques to ensure long-lasting changes that will fulfill your original vision for transformation, working to minimize scarring, reduce discomfort, and expedite recovery.

Dr. Burgdorf will strive to achieve the following goals:

  • Reshaping the breast tissue
  • Reestablishing symmetry and balance
  • Repositioning the nipples in a more attractive location
  • Minimizing scarring
  • Removing excess scar tissue
  • Replacing breast implants if desired

GalaFlex: The Internal Bra

Many women pursue a breast lift revision because their results did not stand the test of time. Dr. Burgdorf understands this concern and made it his mission to find a solution. Today, he uses the GalaFlex internal mesh bra to provide lasting support in the chest. The mesh is made from absorbable suture material that slowly dissolves over time. In response to the mesh, the body creates new, stronger collagen in the area that is five times as robust as regular breast tissue. This internal scaffolding supports the breasts long-term, resisting changes related to gravity and aging.

After Your Procedure

Recovery after breast lift revision is often considered less involved and less painful than the initial mastopexy procedure. Mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness are to be expected, but Dr. Burgdorf will ensure you are comfortable with prescription pain medications and a thorough, customized aftercare plan. Most women can resume normal activities within 1-2 weeks. 

While patients should always have realistic expectations, a breast lift revision will deliver improved breast symmetry, natural-looking elevation, perkier nipples, and minimized scarring. No surgery can provide perfection, but thanks to Dr. Burgdorf’s artistry and skill, you will surely feel more confident and satisfied with your appearance after your revision procedure.
