Breast Lift In Beverly Hills
Sagging breasts, also known as breast ptosis, is a common condition brought about by the effects of gravity, age, rapid weight loss or gain, and pregnancy or multiple pregnancies. Every woman’s body is different, and sagging can be mild or severe. The look and feel of this sagginess can be upsetting for some, affecting their confidence and even relationships.
Breast lift surgery is a common way to improve and correct sagging breasts. In fact, over 113,000 breast lift procedures were conducted in the US in 2019, and the surgery has seen a 114% rise in popularity since 2000. Different surgical techniques are used for breast lifts, depending on the goals and lifestyle of each patient and the degree of ptosis (sagging). Breast lifts may include implants to add additional fullness, though some patients opt for a lift without implants.
Dr. Steve Svehlak and Dr. Dan Yamini offer breast lift surgery with or without implants at Sunset Cosmetic Surgery in Los Angeles. Both Dr. Svehlak and Dr. Yamini are double board-certified plastic surgeons and are widely regarded for their natural-looking results and high standards of patient care.
What is Breast Lift Surgery?
Breast lift surgery, known by doctors as mastopexy, is a procedure that reshapes and ‘lifts’ sagging breasts to a higher and more youthful-looking position. This generally involves making an incision in the breast, removing excess tissue, and repositioning the remaining tissue as necessary. A silicone or saline implant may also be inserted. Surgeons employ several techniques, including various incision shapes and locations to achieve the patient’s desired result.
For many undergoing breast lift surgery, techniques are used to firmly lift and support the internal breast tissue and create an “Internal Bra”. This can be accomplished in a number of ways. One is to use special manufactured materials, such as mesh (Galaform), that is designed to improve firmness in the breast and give more support.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Breast Lift Surgery?
If you have sagging breasts and are not happy with how they look or feel, a breast lift could be an option for you. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss your goals with you and conduct an examination on your breasts, and recommend the best treatment or procedure to help achieve your ideal look.
However, you will need to refrain from or delay breast lift surgery if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have breast cancer or an abnormal mammogram, or are currently ill or treating infection.
What to Expect from a Breast Lift
Before your procedure, you may be asked to refrain from certain medications, and to stop or quit smoking. On the day of surgery, your surgeon and the highly trained team at Sunset Cosmetic Surgery will help you prepare, and ensure you are calm and comfortable throughout. Breast lifts take approximately 1 – 2 hours, and you will be placed under anesthesia.
After surgery, depending on the techniques used and the extent of the procedure, some patients can return to work after 7 – 10 days, with the majority resuming work and mild activities after a few weeks. Your breasts will be tender and may swell, so it is important to take time to allow your body to heal and reduce the chance of any rare but possible complications.
