Breast Lift

For many women, a youthful, perky bust is a source of confidence in their feminine identity. Unfortunately, time and life experience have a significant impact on the appearance of breast shape and texture. Weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and even the natural aging process all work together to damage the integrity of your breast aesthetic. Since the problem typically derives from skin and breast tissue texture and tightness, no amount of diet or exercise will help remedy sagging breasts. The only option to reclaim a bust that looks as young as you feel is to undergo breast lift surgery.

Considering Breast Lift?

  • Breast Shape

    Often, the effects of time and life experience warp your breast shape, producing sagging and pendulous contours. Sometimes, these changes affect one breast more than the other, leaving you with noticeably misshapen, mismatched breasts. Breast lift surgery corrects the shape of the breasts to provide you with a breast appearance you are excited to flaunt.

  • Breast Firmness

    This procedure restores your natural breast texture, providing you with the satisfaction of once again having breasts that are voluptuous and more firm to the touch. It achieves this feat by removing excess skin to correct sagging and folding of the breast tissue.

  • Breast Projection

    When sagging occurs, a common condition that women exhibit is a repositioning of their nipples and breast projection. Rather than projecting slightly up or straight out from your body, the nipples and breast tissue begin to point downward. Breast lift surgery repositions the nipples and recenters the breast tissue to create a natural, robust appearance.

Your Breast Lift Options

Dr. Chiu will perform a thorough analysis of your anatomy and body type using VECTRA® 3D technology before making recommendations regarding your breast lift choices. VECTRA® 3D technology allows Dr. Chiu to take digital images of your chest and torso to simulate how your breasts will appear after your procedure.

Circumareolar

Often referred to as a donut mastopexy or Benelli lift, this procedure involves making an incision around the areola to remove a circular piece of tissue. This is an ideal procedure for women with smaller breasts and moderate sagging. Similar to the crescent technique, this method also provides a discreet scar.

Vertical

This technique requires that an incision is made around the areola and vertically downward toward the breast crease, creating a lollipop-shaped incision. This is an ideal procedure for women with medium-sized breasts and moderate to significant sagging.

Full

This method requires an anchor-shaped incision be made around the nipple, down toward the breast fold, and along the natural crease beneath the breast. This allows for the most significant amount of excess tissue to be removed and is ideal for women with larger breasts and significant sagging.

Breast Lift Recovery

  • Immediately After

    After the procedure has been completed, you will be required to wear a specialized bra and support bandages that will help to reduce swelling and bruising in the operated area. We provide a recovery protocol, including supplements, vitamins, and anti-bruising medications, that must be followed to promote rapid and effective healing. It is also important to get ample amounts of rest during this time in order to keep the body in top health.

  • 1 Week

    During this time, patients should avoid strenuous activity. Most women are able to return to work after the initial 7 days, but every patient’s healing will be unique.

  • 2 to 3 Weeks

    At this time, most patients are able to resume light physical activity once cleared by Dr. Chiu. Most swelling and bruising should have subsided, which will provide you with an idea of what the final results will entail.

  • 4 to 6 Weeks

    At this point, all swelling and bruising will have subsided, and the final results will be apparent.

The best way to prepare for your procedure is to be familiar with your options and have realistic expectations that you would like to achieve through this surgery. It is also best to quit smoking and start a healthy diet and exercise routine in order to produce the best results during recovery.

The effects of the surgery are generally permanent; however, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or other major life experiences can alter your results and put you back at square one. If you are planning to become pregnant or lose a significant amount of weight, it is best to wait on undergoing this operation.

In this instance, a full breast lift is typically recommended, as it provides for the most amount of excised tissue. Each patient’s condition is unique, however, so the only way to know for sure is to schedule a consultation.

Typically, no, but there are some cases in which a breast lift is medically necessary. Dr. Chiu will go over any of those conditions with you at the time of your consultation to see if you are a candidate.
