Breast Lift

Many women’s breasts begin to droop and lose their firmness due to age, pregnancy, and nursing. Breast lift surgery, also called mastopexy, can help give your breasts a more youthful looking silhouette and level of firmness. If you have lost volume in your breasts as well as firmness, you may choose to combine this procedure with breast augmentation. Implants often help many of our San Francisco area patients regain the breasts of their youth.

Am I a Breast Lift Candidate?

Breast lift surgery generally provides the best results in women who have small to moderate sized breasts that are sagging. It is possible to treat large and heavy breasts as well, but the weight of such breasts tends to undo the effects of the breast lift in a shorter amount of time.

Because pregnancy and breastfeeding tend to enlarge the breasts, it is usually a good decision to postpone your breast lift until after you are finished having children. Also, if you have decided to get breast implants in conjunction with a lift,

Dr. Behmand will discuss with you in more detail the combined procedure.

The Breast Lift Procedure

The incision for breast lift surgery is very similar to that used in a breast reduction; however, instead of removing excess tissue, Dr. Behmand will simply tighten up the existing skin and reposition the nipple to a more flattering location. If the areolas have expanded due to pregnancy, you may choose to have their size reduced at this time.

To add more fullness to their breasts, many of our San Francisco and Walnut Creek breast lift patients request augmentation with implants as well. Having these procedures completed at the same time allows for minimized recovery time and scarring.

Your comfort level with your breasts can have a profound impact on how you interact with others and go about your daily activities.
