What Is A Breast Lift?

A breast lift, technically referred to as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that lifts the breast and elevates the position of the nipple to a more desirable location. As one ages, the ligaments in the breast lose integrity, causing the breast to sag. This can be particularly problematic in situations of weight fluctuation and after breastfeeding. 

During mastopexy, the breast is raised by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding breast tissue to reform and support the breast contour. Lifting the breast repositions the nipple to create a more youthful and aesthetic appearing breast. 

Typically, patients considering a breast lift in Beverly Hills are looking to improve the appearance of their breasts from issues caused by:

  • Aging
  • Gravity
  • Heredity
  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Significant weight fluctuations 

A breast lift does not significantly change the size of breasts. To achieve larger breasts, you may combine breast augmentation surgery with breast lift surgery in a procedure called a breast lift with implants. To achieve smaller breasts, you may pair breast reduction with a breast lift procedure.

Your Beverly Hills Breast Lift Consultation with Dr. Davis

While determining the appropriate technique for your breast lift, Dr. Davis will evaluate many aspects of your breasts, including:

  • Current size and shape
  • Placement of nipples and areolas
  • Degree of sagging

What Can I Expect During A Breast Lift Procedure?

Dr. Davis’s expertise allows her to customize procedures to address each patient’s breast lift needs. While each operation will have unique details, there are some general steps you can expect during the procedure:

You will be greeted by the peri-operative team at the clinic and check in. Dr. Davis will evaluate you, perform her surgical markings, and ensure you are comfortable before entering the operating room. Once you are safely sedated with general anesthesia, Dr. Davis will begin your breast lift procedure as determined during your consultation. 

Dr. Davis will make incisions to reshape the breast tissue and remove redundant skin to elevate the position of the nipple. Dr. Davis will tighten the remaining skin by closing the incisions that are layered deeply within the breast tissue to support the breast. The duration of the surgery is approximately 3 hours.

Immediately following surgery, breasts are wrapped with a soft bandage. The bandage is maintained for 3 days. After day 3, a surgical bra or sports bra can be worn for 3-4 weeks to minimize swelling.

During your consultation, Dr. Davis will explain the different procedures and help you determine whether a lift or augmentation surgery will be most effective for your situation.

For many patients, breast lift with implants procedures can be effective for up to 10-15 years. However, some patients have reported being satisfied with their results for much longer.

Scars fade over time and should be less noticeable after a year. However, there are additional non-surgical treatments available for patients concerned about scarring.

After a breast lift, it’s important to avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, smoking, and any other activities that could strain the chest area or impair healing. Following your surgeon’s post-operative care instructions is crucial for a smooth recovery.

The downtime for a breast lift typically ranges from 1 to 2 weeks for initial recovery, with restrictions on physical activity for up to 4 to 6 weeks. The exact time can vary based on the individual’s health, the extent of the surgery, and their healing process.
