What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that “lifts” the breasts to a more desirable position. The procedure involves removal of excess skin and tightening of the surrounding tissue to reshape the breasts and support the new contour.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for a Breast Lift in San Diego?

If you have sagging breast tissue due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, aging, gravity, and genetics may want to consider the procedure. It is also recommended for women with large nipple-areolar complexes that point downward. Women who are happy with the size of their breasts, but not with their appearance, may also be good candidates for a breast lift.

Many women choose to undergo breast augmentation in conjunction with a breast lift, especially if their breasts have lost volume. This procedure is known as “augmentation mastopexy.”

What Can I Expect During the Breast Lift Procedure?

During your initial consultation with Dr. Kearney, your incision options will be discussed. In a concentric lift, the incision is made around the nipple-areolar complex. This technique lifts the breast and reduces the size of the nipples. The concentric lift is recommended for patients with minimal breast sagging.

In a standard lift, the incision is made around the nipple-areolar complex and runs vertically from the bottom of the areola to the crease beneath the breast and then horizontally along the breast crease. This type of incision is called the “anchor” incision and is usually a good option for patients who have a significant amount of breast sagging or those with nipples that point downward.

Your breast lift may also be a mix of the two lift methods. This option is best for patients with moderate sagging. The result of this breast lift technique is a “lollipop” type scar.

During the procedure, excess skin is removed and the breast is reshaped. The nipple-areolar complex is positioned higher on the chest. If desired, a breast implant may be placed through the incision to regain lost breast volume. The nipples and areolas will remain attached in order to preserve sensation and breast-feeding ability. Surgery is usually an outpatient procedure utilizing general anesthesia. It takes between one and three hours, depending on the type of lift performed.

What Can I Expect Post-Procedure?

After undergoing a breast lift in San Diego, CA, patients can expect to go home with light dressings over the incisions and a surgical bra over them to support the breasts and their new shape.

What is the Recovery Time for a Breast Lift?

Sutures are typically removed within two weeks. Most patients can go back to work five to seven days after surgery and resume normal activities within three weeks.
