Women whose breasts have developed looseness, mild to moderate sagging, or a deflated appearance after weight loss or pregnancy may want to consider Benelli breast lifts. This technique does not raise the breasts in the traditional sense, but it does give them a fuller and perkier appearance. Implants are used to “re-inflate” the breasts, and the Benelli method cinches up the loose skin to lift the nipples to a higher position.
Dr. Yamini and Dr. Svehlak are very experienced in this technique. A well-experienced and highly skilled surgeon is often able to blend the incision nicely around the borders of the areolas so that, once healed, the marks are difficult to detect. Benelli lifts are often done in conjunction with breast implants to add fullness while also correcting the sagging.
A Benelli lift is also a good choice for those with enlarged, widened, or uneven areolas. Instead of an anchor-shaped scar below each breast, as with a traditional breast lift, the incision on a Benelli lift is made only around the areolas. Sometimes, this lift is also called a “donut” lift, because excess skin is removed in a doughnut shape all the way around the areolas.
After a lift surgery, it is usually possible to return to work within a week or so, depending on your job. In many cases, our Los Angeles-area patients resume most of their normal activities, including some form of mild exercise, after several weeks.
