What is a Breast Lift?

Mastopexy (known as a breast lift) is a body contouring procedure that lifts and tightens the breasts by removing loose skin and tightening the existing tissue to produce a firmer, younger appearance. This body reshaping surgery is offered for women who have lost breast shape and volume and who are experiencing breast drooping due to aging, significant weight loss, or nursing. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Andre P. Marshall uses the most advanced methods to perform breast lift surgery at Andre P. Marshall Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA. He can decide on the proper technique based upon the level of sag present, keeping in mind the desired result.

What Are the Benefits of A Breast Lift?

A breast lift at Andre P. Marshall Plastic Surgery is a surgical procedure designed to lift and reshape the breasts. Here are some benefits of a breast lift for individuals in Beverly Hills, CA:

  • Rejuvenated appearance: A breast lift can help turn back the clock, giving the breasts a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
  • Improved physical comfort: By lifting and reshaping the breasts, a breast lift can alleviate these physical discomforts and improve overall comfort.
  • Increased self-confidence: Many women experience a boost in self-confidence and body image after a breast lift.
  • Improved breast shape: A breast lift can restore a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing shape to sagging or drooping breasts.
  • Better fitting clothes: By lifting the breasts, a breast lift can improve the fit of clothing, allowing for a wider range of clothing choices and enhancing overall style.
  • Enhanced breast firmness: A breast lift tightens the breast tissue, giving the breasts a firmer and more youthful feel.
  • Long-lasting results: By maintaining a healthy lifestyle and following post-operative instructions, the benefits of a breast lift can be enjoyed for years to come.

Am I a Candidate for a Breast Lift?

In some cases, patients may visit Andre P. Marshall Plastic Surgery believing they are a candidate for breast augmentation; however, after a private assessment, they often realize that a breast lift is better for their situation. This reason is due to the severity of sagging that is shown. Breasts that point downward usually need a breast lift to correct skin looseness and raise the breasts to a perkier position. If you have nipples that droop downward and your breasts appear stretched, a surgical lift can improve their appearance. If you are considering a breast lift, you should be physically healthy and at a good weight.

Breast Lift Surgical Technique

Breast lift surgery is performed within about 2 – 4 hours under general anesthesia. The anchor technique (inverted T) and vertical incisions are the most commonly used surgical techniques. First, the incision is made, and any excess skin is excised along with fat tissue from the breasts. The skin is then pulled tight and the breasts are elevated so they appear healthy and younger. In many cases, the size and shape of the areola are reconstructed and reduced to be symmetric with the new placement and shape of the breast. After the procedure, you will be fitted with a medical compression bra to minimize swelling. A member of our team will provide home-based care instructions to assist your healing process. Aesthetic results after a surgical breast lift are most noticeable after a few weeks as your newly shaped breasts take their new placement on your chest.

Breast Lift FAQ

How much does a breast lift cost?
During your initial appointment, Dr. Marshall will listen to your wants and aesthetic goals before developing your unique treatment plan. After that, he can better estimate your costs. When performed well, a breast lift will significantly enhance your appearance, so it's important to concentrate on having a skilled surgeon with extensive training, like Dr. Marshall, rather than costs. To help make cosmetic surgery easier to afford, Andre Marshall Plastic Surgery can help you find low-interest medical financing.

Do I need a breast lift or breast implants?
Whether you should have a breast lift, implants, or both will depend on your special concerns and goals. Oftentimes, a breast lift will enhance the shape and fullness of the breasts without implants. Dr. Marshall will assess your physical condition and listen to your goals at your consultation, then make a decision whether you would benefit from implants, a lift, or a breast augmentation with a lift.

Will my nipples be moved?
Typically, the nipple-areola complex will be moved up in the breast lift. If your areolas are overly large or stretched, Dr. Marshall can incorporate an areola reduction in your surgery. This may be discussed during your appointment so he can decide on the ideal incision pattern and technique to use in your breast lift.

How long will my results last?
With good care after surgery, your results should last for several years. Your breasts will still age normally, so you might start to see sagging and loose skin in time. Factors like significant weight loss or gain can alter your results; therefore, it's best to maintain a stable weight after your breast lift. Pregnancy or breastfeeding after a breast lift may also alter your results, which is why Dr. Marshall recommends patients wait until they are finished having kids to get a breast lift.

Can a breast lift fix asymmetry?
A lift can improve asymmetry in your breasts if they are different in size, firmness, or level of sagging. Dr. Marshall will assess the physical condition and appearance of your breasts during your consultation and discuss how a breast lift can help you. During your lift, he will adjust the tissue — so your breasts are equal in position and size for symmetry.
