What is a Breast Lift?
Mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, is a cosmetic procedure that recontours the breasts by removing excess skin and pulling tight the leftover tissue to produce a more youthful and healthier appearance. This body contouring surgery is offered for women who have lost breast fullness and shape and who have breast drooping due to breastfeeding, weight loss, aging, or gravity. Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin, our board-certified cosmetic surgeons, offer this surgery at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Jacksonville, FL. By integrating the most advanced methods, we can choose the appropriate technique according to the level of sag present while keeping in mind the desired aesthetic goal.
Breast Lift Reviews
"I had been struggling with whether or not I should have a lower body lift after losing a large amount of weight. I made the decision to jump in after taking 4 flights in the span of two months where I was manhandled by TSA because of my extra skin. I chose CSA and Dr. Nuveen after consulting with 2 other practices and I am so glad I did. Dr Nuveen worked a miracle on me and I am still shocked and do a double take every time I pass by a mirror. I look amazing and feel even better. He and his staff are absolutely the best and make you feel so comfortable in a situation that can be overwhelming. I love this practice and staff so much that I will be having a breast lift with implants early next year. Thank you all for giving me my confidence back. That is a priceless gift!"- C.W. / Facebook / Dec 31, 2021

"I love him and his staff. So, it was the ice storm of 2021. It was last minute if any of us could actually get there. Absolutely insane! I was informed if I could get there we could do the surgery. I showed up and was obviously so freaked out and nervous about my surgery that I ate an egg for breakfast. Not what I was instructed to do. I felt like a total entitled *****. The staff and surgeon is there in a snow/ice storm and I ate. They were so nice. They called me later because we all had to go home and hope we made it because of the treacherous conditions. They moved clients around and were able reschedule me for the next day (I don't live in OKC). Dr. Nuveen came in before surgery and was so empathetic. His bedside manner is like no doctor I've ever met. I've waited so long to write a review because I wanted to make sure that the healing and settling comments were accurate (I'm also a little late than I needed to be). I am soooooo pleased with my lift. He did an amazing job! I am so happy and will go to him for anything I may need in the future."- Anonymous / Vitals / Oct 10, 2022
"I had wanted to have a breast lift for years and decided now was the right time. I googled “cosmetic surgery” and found a group that was providing online estimates. This led me to Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates. I browsed the “before and after” photos, and figured I’d keep them in mind and continued browsing the web, but I got a call from Nathania Consolini, the Patient Care Director and decided, from that phone call, that I would have consultation with them. Nathania loves her job and loves being a part of the process so much that I think she was more excited for my breast lift than I was! My consultation and surgery was performed by Dr. Courtney Caplin. She is very professional but also very warm and friendly. All of the staff at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates are fantastic and go above and beyond to answer questions and walk you through the process. The surgery center next door was also great. And by the way, the original estimate that I was given was spot on, no hidden fees anywhere! I highly recommend Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates!"- N.F. / Google / Jul 13, 2023
"If you’re looking for a plastic surgeon…you’ve found one. Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplan are amazing and they care about their patients. I got exactly what I asked for and they listened to me!!! The whole staff is great as well. I have never felt more safe and comfortable with a surgeon than Dr. Nuveen. I’m forever grateful to the CSA team."- K.W. / Google / Aug 21, 2023
HOW IS A BREAST LIFT DONE?
A breast lift takes usually around two hours and is performed using general anesthesia or IV sedation. The timeframe of this procedure is dependent on the complexity of breast sag. The method used for cosmetic breast lift surgery is determined by the size, location, and nature of the incision. The anchor technique (inverted-T) and the straight line vertical incisions are the most used methods. Once the incision is made, any loose and excess skin is removed along with breast tissue and fat that is not needed. The skin is then tightened and the breasts are positioned higher and lifted so they look healthy. In many cases, the size and shape of the areola are reduced to be symmetric with the new shape of the breast. In most cases the nipple stays attached and is rotated into a high position. In fewer cases, when the relocation is a very far distance, or if the breast tissue is very dense, a free nipple graft is recommended.
