What Is Breast Lift Surgery?

Featured Image

Pregnancy and breastfeeding often cause breasts to lose skin elasticity, forcing them to droop downward. Many people come to The Plastics Doc seeking treatment that restores their natural shape. Plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Samuel Salcedo is proud to offer breast lift surgery to get rid of excess skin and give you a perky appearance once again.

So, what is breast lift surgery, and who are the best candidates for this procedure? When you come in for an assessment in Corona, CA, we can help you understand all aspects of a breast lift and give you custom recommendations for treatment. Our office specializes in helping patients reverse the effects of time and achieve their cosmetic goals.

Candidates for breast lift surgery

When women experience loose skin or loss of volume in their breasts, they often turn to breast implants. When you visit our clinic, however, you may realize a breast lift in Beverly Hills is a far better option. A breast lift is designed to raise the breasts by removing extra skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. The nipples are also raised to a higher position on the chest. Dr. Salcedo will discuss your specific needs and formulate a custom treatment plan. Ideal candidates should be in good health and have realistic expectations for their lift results.

How breast lift surgery is performed

A breast lift takes several hours, depending on the amount of sagging tissue involved. Patients should expect to be under general anesthesia during the procedure. To begin, Dr. Salcedo will make incisions in discrete locations so any resulting scars will be as minimal as possible. After removing any unnecessary skin, the remaining tissue is pulled tight, and the breasts are lifted so they appear perky. If we believe you can also benefit from breast implants, this will be discussed prior to your skin tightening surgery.

What to expect after your breast lift

Following the procedure, Dr. Salcedo will give you a medical compression bra to help with temporary side effects, such as inflammation. We also insert a small tube to capture any excess fluid. The Plastics Doc provides helpful guidelines for taking care of your breasts to avoid infection or other complications. Results appear after several weeks as the breast tissue settles and the swelling subsides. Remember to schedule follow-up appointments, and contact us if you have any concerns.

How long will results last?

With proper care after skin tightening surgery, your outcome can last for many years. Keep in mind that your breasts will still age as normal so you may notice some loose skin over time. Patients who experience significant weight fluctuations or get pregnant in the future may also experience changes to their breasts. This is why we suggest waiting until you are near your goal weight and you are finished having children to get a breast lift in Beverly Hills. You can always visit our clinic to refresh your results.
