Breast Lift Surgery
Women who have breasts that sag due to aging, childbirth, weight gain, or another reason can benefit from breast lift surgery at our Bakersfield, Fresno and Malibu practices. In the procedure, the surgeon removes excess skin and tissue and re-contours the breasts to a perkier, more desirable appearance. Breast lift surgery can help patients achieve truly dramatic results, rejuvenating their overall look and improving self-confidence.
Before Breast Lift Surgery
Before performing breast lift surgery, our surgeons meet with the patient in an initial consultation to determine if she is a good candidate for the procedure and to discuss the procedure's risks and benefits. During the consultation, the surgeons will help the patient decide if the breast lift surgery should be performed on its own or also as a breast augmentation procedure with breast implants for added enhancement.
Once the patient has been determined to be a good candidate for breast lift surgery by our Bakersfield, Fresno and Malibu surgeons, she will undergo a mammogram and may be prescribed certain medications. All breast lift patients who smoke are advised to quit smoking at least two weeks before the procedure. Also, patients should avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, blood thinners, and other similar medications because they can increase bleeding.
Breast Lift Procedure
The incisions used in breast lift surgery vary depending on the needs of the patient. The surgeon will discuss with the patient the incision technique that will provide optimal results and will provide the patient with an honest assessment of the residual scarring she can expect. Once incisions are made, excess skin and tissue are removed to lift and reshape the breasts, and the nipples are placed in a higher position. If the patient desires, breast implants will also be placed.
Results and Recovery
Breast lift surgery can produce breathtaking results. However, it is important for patients to understand that the recovery process for breast lift surgery is relatively long. In the first several weeks following breast lift surgery, patients can expect to experience soreness and numbness in the nipples. As recovery progresses, patients can slowly resume normal activities, but they must avoid lifting heavy objects for at least 4 to 6 weeks. The full results of breast lift surgery can take several months to become apparent.
We encourage patients who are interested in undergoing breast lift surgery to view the before-and-after photos of actual patients to get a better idea of the outstanding results our skilled surgeons are able to accomplish.
