Breast Lift

How long has it been since you stepped out of the shower and saw beautifully contoured, perky breasts in the mirror? In Los Angeles, many breast lift patients have watched helplessly as their breasts slowly migrate south while losing volume and shape. Age, significant weight fluctuation, and having children considerably affect skin laxity and breast structure causing our breasts to sag.

Pouring your sagging breasts into a bra every morning and watching as they fall the moment you remove your lingerie every night isn’t the answer. And no amount of diet or exercise – nor creams or pills – can tone and shape your breasts. Los Angeles’ Marina Plastic Surgery can provide for you that much-needed breast lift and transform your life with a new lifestyle.

Top 10 reasons for a Breast Lift

Here are ten of the major reasons why women seek a breast lift:

  1. Aging: Over the years, gravity has a huge impact on your breasts weighing down your skin causing them to lose firmness and begin to sag noticeably. 
  2. Back and Neck Pain: When your breasts become saggy, it can create pressure on your body and give you chronic back or neck pain.
  3. Bra Straps: When your breasts sag too much, it puts pressure on your back and neck causing your straps to “slash” into your shoulders
  4. Limited Physical Activities: When you have unsupported breasts, it can limit regular household activities as well as more strenuous sports exercise like running.
  5. Nipples & Areola: When your breasts start to sag too much, your nipples can end up hanging below the crease of your breasts and point downward.
  6. Pregnancy & Breastfeeding: A pregnancy puts a lot of strain on your breasts, especially when you breastfeed. Nursing a child makes your breasts stretch and shrink several times creating an impact on the breast tissue and the elasticity of the skin.
  7. Self-confidence: A breast lift will make you less self-conscious and give you confidence in how you look.
  8. Skin Irritation: Your breasts can brush against your skin and cause you pain and rashes.
  9. Weight Loss: When you lose a lot of weight, your breasts become saggy and lose their shape.
  10. Youthful Appearance: A breast lift can help make you look younger.

Breast Lift Procedure

Breast lifts can be performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. A custom procedure will be crafted to lift and firm your breasts depending on your skin laxity, the volume of breast tissue, and the desired outcome. All breast lifts require external incisions, which are minimized as much as possible. But our breast enhancement patients find that the improved breast shape is well worth the tradeoff.

Incision Techniques

Each breast lift procedure can be adapted using various incision techniques based on the type of patient and the desired result. Here are 3 of the most commonly used breast lift techniques:

Anchor (Traditional) Breast Lift - The most traditional technique. This procedure involves an incision around the areola, vertically down the breast from the nipple to the breast line and along the breast fold in a crescent incision (resembling an anchor). This technique is best suited for those who have significant sagging as it allows for the removal of larger amounts of tissue and skin.

Lollipop (Vertical) Breast Lift - This technique involves only two of the incisions; around the areola and vertically down the breast. There is no crescent incision along the fold of the breast. A lollipop lift is best suited for women with moderate drooping.

Donut (Circumareolar) Breast Lift - This technique involves a singular incision around the circumference of the areola. A donut lift would only be employed where there was only minor sagging.

In your consultation, Dr. Stevens will go over your goals for your procedure and perform an examination to determine which technique will best produce the results you are looking to achieve.

Breast Lift FAQ

Are you a good candidate for a breast lift?

If you are in good physical health, a non-smoker and have a stable weight, you are a good candidate for a breast lift. Any woman with sagginess in their breasts and who feel pain from the pressure of the weight in their breasts should consider this procedure.

What are the results of a breast lift?

The result of a breast lift will be immediately visible and long-lasting. The things that can eventually influence the result of your procedure include the effects of aging and gravity, or if you decide to have a child in the future. In order to benefit from your procedure for the longest period, you should maintain a steady weight and a healthy lifestyle.

What are the risks of a breast lift?

There is always some degree of risk with any surgery. For a breast lift, this can include a change of sensation in your nipple or breast, asymmetry in the size and shape of your breasts, bad reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, infection, and scarring. If you breastfeed after a breast lift, you may find it difficult to produce enough milk.

What is the recovery for a breast lift?

You will see some immediate change to how your breasts appear following your breast lift procedure. That process will continue over the next few months as the shape of your breasts change and settle during your recovery. Don’t be surprised if your breasts are firmer and rounder. This may make your breasts feel smaller, even without a breast reduction procedure.

You can expect some swelling following your surgery. It is not unusual to initially feel some loss of sensation in your breast and nipple. But normal sensation returns to normal within a few weeks. Your scars will appear lumpy and red at first and then slowly fade and become thin and white. Although your scars are permanent, they are minor and can be hidden by bras or swimwear.
