Breast Lift

WE TAKE PRIDE IN PRICE TRANSPARENCY

Breast Lift

A breast that sits high and proud and is proportional to the rest of the torso is truly the ideal. Unfortunately, your breast skin and tissue can stretch with age, pregnancy, breast feeding, weight gain/loss, and menopause. The result is a droopy looking breast that may make you feel less than your best. A mastopexy or breast lift is a surgical procedure to lift and re-shape your breast so that it sits higher on your chest wall. It is one of the ultimate confidence boosters.

Are You a Candidate for a Breast Lift?

The best candidate for a breast lift is any woman:
  • in good overall health
  • a non-smoker
  • finished having children
  • within 15 lbs. of a maintainable goal weight
  • up-to-date with breast screening
  • who is bothered by sagging breasts
The reason that Dr. Nazarian likes her breast surgery patients to be at a weight that they can comfortably maintain is that any significant weight gain, typically 20 lbs. or more, may change your breast lift results.

Types of Breast Lift

There are different degrees of sagging or ptosis in the breast skin and tissues. All can be improved with a breast lift procedure. But patients with a smaller amount of ptosis may do well with a different type of breast lift incision than those with a larger amount of excess skin.  Dr. Nazarian offers her Beverly Hills and beyond patients four different types of breast lift: 
  • anchor shaped incision
  • lollipop breast lift
  • donut mastopexy
  • BodyTite™ scarless lift
The differences lie in the extent of the incision. The right one for you is going to depend on the laxity of your breast tissue, the amount of loose skin that needs to be excised as well as your willingness to tolerate scars.  Keep in mind, however, that scars on the breast typically heal extremely well. So, it is important that you get the breast lift that will best deliver your ideal outcome. Scar therapy and lasers are also available in-office to help improve the appearance of any scars.

BodyTite™ Scarless Breast Lift

The BodyTite™ is a minimally invasive procedure that can be used to give 2-3 cm of lift in those patients who are also able to tolerate a half cup size reduction. During your BodyTite™ procedure, Dr. Nazarian places a radiofrequency (RF) probe under the skin through a tiny needle poke, making it basically scarless. The RF energy melts fat while also tightening and lifting the skin as well as the ligaments beneath your skin. It is a great new technology that is used all over the body and can be an amazing option for patients who desire a slight reduction, and a lift.

Breast Lift Recovery Time

Regardless of the type of mastopexy that you and Dr. Nazarian choose, the procedure is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia in an accredited surgery center or operating room. After the procedure, you will be placed in support wrapping that is removed in a day or two. Patients can expect to be bruised and swollen after their breast lift procedure. Most patients take narcotics for a day or two, and then transition to Tylenol to manage any discomfort. While on narcotics, it is important to stay away from operating heavy machinery. This includes driving a car. Antibiotics will also be prescribed for a week.  Dr. Nazarian likes her breast lift patients to take it easy for 2 weeks — no heavy lifting, no reaching across counter tops, and no baths/saunas/hot tubs (1 month). You can start to ease back into your normal routine at 2 weeks. This may include light walking in the mall. You can start back to more intense workouts at 4 weeks, but please hold off on any upper body work for about 4-6 weeks. You want to give your body the time to really heal. While you will notice a huge improvement in your body contour immediately, it can take anywhere from 3-6 months for the swelling to fully subside and for you to see your final, final results.  To find out more about a Breast Lift with Dr. Sheila Nazarian at her Beverly Hills office, contact us today or call (310) 773-3039 to schedule a consultation.

Frequently
Asked Questions

I am in my late 30’s and my breasts have started to droop. Do I need a breast augmentation or a breast lift?

It is impossible to say without seeing you in person or at least a photo. In general, if your nipples rest at or below the inframammary fold, which is the crease under the breast, then you are probably going to need a breast lift. If the nipples hover somewhere in the lower half of the breast, it is possible that you could get away with a small implant. My best advice would be for you to schedule a consultation and come in to our Beverly Hills office to be assessed.

My breasts are driving me nuts, but I am not done having children. Do I really have to wait to have a breast lift?

I always think it’s best to push off the breast lift until you are done having children as pregnancy and breastfeeding are going to re-stretch the skin and tissues of the breast. But it really depends on how miserable you are right now. As long as you are aware that you may need a “touch up” to your breast lift after you are done having kids, then there is no reason not to have it done now if you’d like.

Is breast lift recovery painful?

I’ve never had one so I can’t speak from personal experience, but my breast lift patients are always surprised at just how easy the recovery actually is. You will be restricted in your movements for a few weeks. But not in a “lay on the couch” kind of way. You simply have to be cautious about your arm movements. The hardest part for many is sleeping on their back for the first week.

I am scared about the scars. Are they bad?

Every woman is wary of the idea of scars on the breast. They are such a crucial part of our sexuality. But the incisions on the breast really do heal well. I generally find that my breast lift patients feel so good about how great their new lifted breasts look that they don’t even think about the scars. They are super excited to have their nipples pointing forward under a tank top! And I have never heard a husband or boyfriend complain. In case the scars are less than ideal, we have all the lasers to help!

Will I lose feeling in my nipples after a breast lift?

At first, things are going to feel off. Your nipples may be super sensitive and a bit numb. It’s a weird combination. But as the breasts continue to heal, everything should return to normal. This may take 6 months or more, however, so be patient.
