What is a Breast Lift?

Breast lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that redefines the breasts by reducing loose skin and surgically tightening the healthy tissue in order to produce a firmer, younger look. This body reshaping surgery is reserved for women who have lost breast fullness and shape and who are experiencing breast drooping due to weight loss, pregnancy, or aging. Outstanding advancements in mastopexy techniques have made this treatment so effective that new statistics by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveal an approximately 70% increase in demand since 2000. Brea and Beverly Hills, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin offers this cosmetic breast surgery at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery and incorporates the most advanced methods to help address breast sagging so that he can deliver desired outcomes.

Who Should Get a Breast Lift?

You may visit Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery wanting breast implants; however, after a private assessment, you may realize that a breast lift is what you really need. This depends on the severity of breast sagging present. Breasts and nipples that point down most often need a lift to reduce skin looseness and bring the breasts up to a perkier position. If you have nipples that droop downward and your breasts sag significantly below the crease line, then a cosmetic lift can help to improve their appearance. If you're considering a breast lift, you should be in good health and at your ideal weight.

How Breast Lift Surgery is Done

Breast lift surgery usually takes around two hours or more with patients under general anesthesia. The duration of this procedure depends on the complexity of breast ptosis. The surgical technique used for cosmetic breast lifts generally falls into two categories based on the size and location needed for the incision. The anchor technique (inverted-T) and the straight line vertical incisions are the most commonly used types. After making the incision, Dr. Corbin carefully trims any excess skin away, along with breast tissue and unwanted fat. He then tightens the remaining skin and lifts and positions the breasts higher so that they look younger and healthier. In many cases, he reduces the size and shape of the areola to be symmetrical with the new placement and shape of the breast. At this point, he can insert an implant in the breast if this was agreed upon ahead of surgery. If a breast lift is the only technique being performed and if breast fullness and shape are a concern, then breast augmentation with implants can be done on a different date.

Recovery Expectations

The recovery for any type of breast lift is more extensive than for breast augmentation. After surgery, you'll need to wear a support bra to reduce swelling. Dr. Corbin will also insert a thin tube near the incision site to help with draining excess fluid that can often occur after surgery. The post-surgical swelling should decrease within 3 – 5 days. Dr. Corbin or a member of his team will provide home-care instructions to help with your healing process. Results following a breast lift treatment typically become evident after a few weeks once the breasts settle into their higher placement on your chest wall. Your breasts should appear natural, helping you feel beautiful and more youthful.
