Breast Lift

Having children or losing a significant amount of weight can enhance your life in many ways. Unfortunately, your breasts can also be left looking saggy and flattened. For many women, gravity and time are enough to diminish the shapeliness of their larger breasts. Our board-certified plastic surgeons create a more youthful, renewed breast shape with a breast lift in San Jose.

Understanding Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery, technically called mastopexy, can restore a firm, rounded shape to your breasts. This procedure is appropriate for women of all ages, although we encourage women who are considering future pregnancies to postpone their surgery until afterward. Women visit our practice for breast lift surgery from Palo Alto, Los Gatos, Campbell, and other nearby cities for their own personal reasons, which often include:

  • Creating firmer, shapelier breasts
  • Aligning breasts when one sits lower than the other
  • Reducing areola size
  • Enhancing other breast procedures, such as breast augmentation

Our surgeons strive strives to establish a comfortable, open relationship with their patients. They will allow plenty of time to thoroughly discuss your breast enhancement options and answer all of your questions at your consultation. Be sure to review before-and-after photos to see the improvements for some of our actual breast lift patients.

Women who have had one or more pregnancies can benefit from the combination of a breast lift with breast augmentation, liposuction, and a tummy tuck for a complete Mommy Makeover.

Your Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery is performed as an outpatient surgery that takes about 2 to 3 hours to complete, with additional time required when combined with other procedures. You will need to have someone drive you home and help you out for the first few days after your procedure.

Our surgeons perform breast lift surgery usually using either an anchor-shaped incision or a concentric (donut) incision around the areolas with or without a vertical incision. They reposition the nipples and areolas higher on the breasts, removes excess skin and tissue, and closes the incisions with fine sutures. Although scars cannot be completely avoided, they should lighten considerably over the first year.

Breast Lift Recovery

You will be required to wear a special support bra for the first 3 to 4 weeks while your body heals. You should be able to return to light activity, including work, within in 7 to 10 days. Strenuous arm movements and heavy lifting of any kind should be avoided for several weeks.

Your New Look

RealSelf Top Doctor for Breast Lift in 2013

Most women are very satisfied with their firm, more shapely breasts from breast lift surgery. Our breast lift patients often feel more attractive and self confident, both in and out of clothing.

If you choose to combine your lift with breast implants, your breasts will likely be perkier, larger, and fuller after surgery. For women who have lost breast volume due to time or pregnancies, combining a lift and augmentation can help restore their sense of femininity and confidence.

Our surgeons regard their roles as plastic surgeons as more of a calling than a career, making patient care a priority. To learn more about breast enhancement, including breast lift surgery, request your complimentary cosmetic consultation online or call our office at  (408) 356-4241.
