Improve Sagging Breasts
Your breast size and shape are constantly changing due to age, pregnancy, breast feeding, medications, and weight fluctuations. These changes often result in a breast that appears deflated with a nipple that has moved down on the breast. A breast lift (or mastopexy) can be performed to restore a more desirable and youthful breast and improve sagging breasts. Women in Los Angeles often request breast lift surgery to improve their overall confidence.
Breast lift is designed to reposition the glandular tissue of the breast higher up on your chest wall. The extra skin, or stretched breast skin, is removed. The nipple is left attached to the underlying breast tissue, but it is moved up to a higher position. The diameter of the areola can also be reduced slightly to improve the overall look of your breasts. There are several types of lifts, including crescent breast lift, circumareolar lift, vertical lift, circumvertical lift, and wise-pattern lift. The actual type of lift will be determined based on your preoperative examination.
If you feel that your breasts are smaller than desired, a breast implant can be placed at the time of your breast lift. In fact, most women in Los Angeles and southern California prefer to add a breast implant because the implant will create fullness at the upper most part of the breast, which can otherwise be difficult to achieve. Some patients also request liposuction of the lateral chest wall (below the armpit) to reduce the width of the breast and improve the overall roundness.
Benefits of a breast lift in Los Angeles
A breast lift is performed as an outpatient surgery in our Los Angeles plastic surgery center. The recovery from a breast lift is usually rather quick – most patients will be able to get back to work after one week. The cost of a breast lift is also reasonable and may be combined with breast enlargement
