When your breasts are looking down and you want them to look up, a breast lift may be right for you.
Many patients complain about the droopiness of their breasts. Some are happy with the overall volume or size of their breasts, but feel they tend to wrinkle and fold in a bra. Mastopexy, or breast lift surgery Beverly Hills, can reduce the skin excess and elevate the saggy nipple to a more acceptable level. No implant is necessary if a patient is happy with her overall size. The surgery takes about two hours to perform and the recovery is about one week off from work.
Other women feel that in addition to droopy breasts, they have lost volume over the years. This is quite common in women who have had and nursed children. Mastopexy augment, or a breast lift augmentation, tightens the breast skin, elevates the nipple to a better height and increases the size for better upper chest fullness. My preference is a partial sub pectoral implant plane so the recovery from this surgery is a bit lengthier than just a breast lift. Most patients are able to return to work after two weeks and to the gym after three weeks.
A mastopexy is a procedure that tightens and lifts the breasts. There are many procedures that can be used to achieve this goal, the most common being a “vertical” approach that results in a lollipop shaped scar. A mastopexy can be performed with or without the addition of a breast implant. Many patients prefer a breast implant with a mastopexy because of the superior breast fullness provided by the implant that can’t be achieved with a lift alone. Performing a lift and an implant at the same time is a challenging surgery that is associated with a higher degree of complications and asymmetries and should only be performed by an experienced surgeon. A mastopexy in a larger breast is not recommended as the lift generally won’t last. Breast Lift Surgery Beverly Hills is conducted by Dr. Afshin Farzadmehr.
