Breast Lift Fort Lauderdale
A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to raise, reshape, and add fullness to sagging breasts. Patients seeking a breast lift in Fort Lauderdale should consider a visit to Forever Young MedSpa.
At our medspa, Dr. Wigoda uses several of the newest techniques that leave minimal post-surgical marks and ensure the quickest recovery. Our results are long-lasting and look very natural. Though many patients choose to get a breast lift without implants, a breast lift with implants (augmentation mastopexy) is another effective option and can create even more comprehensive enhancement.

Good Candidates For Breast Lift Surgery
- Ideal mastopexy candidates have lost breast volume due to pregnancy or aging and are now experiencing sagging.
- Good candidates have large areolas with little fullness at the top of their breasts.
Your Breast Lift Consultation
During your initial complimentary consultation, you will meet with a member of our surgical team and we will review your previous surgeries, your medical history, medications you are presently taking, and your overall physical and emotional health. Your skin quality will also be evaluated.
Photographs may be taken for your medical record. Dr. Wigoda will work with you to determine what procedure you will benefit from most and whether or not additional procedures will be necessary for you to achieve your desired results.
Recovery time, risks, and limitations associated with surgery will also be discussed. A member of our staff will review surgical costs and scheduling with you.
About Breast Lifts in Fort Lauderdale
- You will require anesthesia.
- The technique used will depend on Dr. Wigoda’s preference and is determined by what you will benefit most from.
- The placement of your incisions will depend on the technique required for you. Dr. Wigoda will usually suggest a procedure that will leave you with the least amount of scarring possible.
- If preferred, breast implants may be inserted behind the pectoral muscle, although in many cases, implants are not required due to Dr. Wigoda’s advanced techniques. The benefit in not using implants is that the weight of implants can exceed two plus pounds and can cause neck and back strain.
Breast Lift Recovery
During your mastopexy healing process, you will be required to wear a surgical bra for as long as directed. This surgical bra helps to support your temporarily weakened tissues as they heal.
To achieve the best breast lift results, patients must take time off from work to rest and recover and must follow their doctor’s care directions closely. For several weeks, it will be important to avoid any sort of strenuous physical activity, including heavy exercise and sports.
A degree of swelling and bruising is normal in the surgical area. These issues will ameliorate over time, and after this occurs, you will be able to see the full results of your procedure.

The Importance of Board Certification
Many centers advertise cosmetic surgeons as being board certified. There are only two recognized certification bodies: The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). The ABPS is one of 24 medical specialty boards that make up the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). These officially recognized boards establishes common standards for physicians to achieve and maintain board certification.
So while many physicians pose as having board certification, only membership in the ASPS or the ABPS and the symbols below are your assurances that your plastic surgeon has passed the rigorous requirements for board certification.
If you would like to see if your doctor is board certified, please click the links below and type in the doctor’s name.

Either of these two symbols are your assurance that your doctor is officially a board-certified plastic surgeon and has passed the rigorous testing standards for this recognition. Dr. Wigoda is recognized by both boards.
