Breast Lift Surgery
Have your breasts changed as you have gotten older? Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing and the force of gravity take their toll on a woman’s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is a breast surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts, at least for a long amount of time. No surgery can permanently defy the effects of gravity. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery specializes in reshaping and lifting the breast for a more youthful, sexy appearance at our medical center in Beverly Hills.
The Best Candidates for Breast Lifts
A breast lift can enhance your appearance and self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your plastic surgeon.
The best candidates for mastopexy are healthy, emotionally stable women who are realistic about what the surgery can accomplish. The best results are usually achieved in women with small, sagging breasts. Breasts of any size can be lifted, but the results may not last as long in heavy breasts. Some of the breast lift surgery options we offer include:
Dr. Anastasatos customizes each breast lift to the patient to create beautiful, natural results. Some of the breast lift techniques used include:
- Crescent lift
- Vertical lift
- Anchor lift
- Peri-areolar lift (one of the most popular)
- Benelli lift
Many women seek mastopexy because pregnancy and nursing have left them with stretched skin and less volume in their breasts. However, if you’re planning to have more children, it may be a good idea to postpone your breast lift. While there are no special risks that affect future pregnancies (for example, mastopexy usually doesn’t interfere with breast-feeding), pregnancy is likely to stretch your breasts again and offset the results of the procedure.
A breast lift or mastopexy can give your breasts a more youthful appearance that can boost your self-confidence. If you are interested in learning more about breast lift surgery, contact us at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills to schedule a breast consultation with Dr. Anastasatos.
