Breast lift surgery at L.A. Vinas M.D. Plastic Surgery, Med Spa & Skin Care Centers can help you reshape and reposition your breasts so they sit higher on your chest and look more youthful.
Much like the rest of the body, breasts can experience the effects of aging, leading to sagging and reduced elasticity. This occurs as the supporting structures of the breast undergo stretching and weakening. Factors such as childbirth, genetics, and stretch marks resulting from weight fluctuations can exacerbate this sagging.
A network of skin, tissue, and ligaments work together to support and anchor the breasts to the underlying muscles. Unfortunately, breast ligaments cannot be repaired, which is why a breast lift primarily targets the skin and tissue. During a breast lift procedure, Dr. Vinas removes a portion of the breast skin, elevates the nipple and breast tissue, and suspends them, resulting in a lifted appearance for the breasts.
Depending on the severity of your situation, various options for the breast lift procedure are available. Some of these options aim to minimize scarring and reduce the recovery time following the surgery.
Vertical Breast Lift: Dr. Vinas employs a vertical breast lift technique that diverges from the typical horizontal “anchor” scar approach. Instead, a “lollipop” incision is used, lifting the lateral sides of the breasts to create a rounded and fuller breast appearance. This approach can offer the appearance of increased breast size without requiring implants, while also reducing scarring.
Periareolar Breast Lift: The periareolar breast lift is a modified version used for mild breast sagging and areola repositioning. This approach involves small circular or semicircular incisions placed around the outer edge of the areola. It is less invasive and less traumatic than a full breast lift, while still delivering excellent results. In addition to the breast lift procedure, Dr. Vinas offers breast reduction, breast augmentation, and nipple and skin-sparing reconstruction.
Beyond restoring a youthful and lifted position to the breasts, a breast lift can provide the following benefits:
*Results may vary individually.
*In some cases, your breast lift procedure may be covered by insurance if deemed medically necessary.
