Beverly Hills Breast Lift Surgery

What Is A Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. As a woman ages, skin loses some elasticity which can cause the breasts to lose their natural shape and firmness. This procedure is designed to elevate the breasts and give them a more youthful appearance. A Beverly Hills breast lift may also be completed in conjunction with breast enlargement surgery (augmentation). Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Firouz specializes in breast lifts and aims to provide every breast lift patient with a unique approach and procedure.

Reasons for Considering a Beverly Hills Breast Lift

Because each patient is unique, there are many different reasons why someone may choose to undergo a breast lift. Some women want to elevate the breasts due to sagging caused by the effects of aging and gravity. It’s also possible that some want to firm the breasts if they have lost substance due to pregnancy and subsequent breast-feeding. Many women choose to undergo a breast lift in Beverly Hills to re-align your nipples/areolas if they point down or to the side or to bring back natural suppleness after weight loss.

Beverly Hills Breast Lift Procedure

The Beverly Hills breast lift surgical procedure usually takes one and a half to three hours. Techniques vary, but the most common procedure involves an anchor-like incision along the underside of the breast. The incision goes around the area where skin will be removed, thus defining how the nipple will be relocated. When the excess skin has been removed, the nipple and areola are moved into a higher position. Dr. Firouz makes sure that the skin surrounding the areola is brought down and together to reshape the breast.

Some patients, especially those with relatively small breasts and minimal sagging, may be candidates for modified procedures requiring less extensive incisions. One such procedure is the “doughnut (or concentric) mastopexy” in which circular incisions are made around the areola and a doughnut-shaped area of skin is removed. Recent innovations in breast lift techniques include minimal incision techniques and nipple sensation reducing procedures.

Beverly Hills Breast Lift Recovery

Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and recovery time. Bandages are applied right after surgery to aid the healing process and to minimize movement of the breasts. Once the bandages are removed, the patient will need to wear a specialized surgical bra for several weeks. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with surgery which can be treated with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following the post-operative directions given by the surgeon.
