Breast Lift

A breast lift (mastopexy) is a cosmetic breast enhancement surgery performed to elevate and improve the shape of breasts that have become droopy or saggy. This breast surgery is popular with women who have experienced changes to their breasts after having children, losing a large amount of weight, or simply from the inescapable effects of gravity as we age.

With offices in Camarillo and Santa Barbara, Dr. Daniel Kolder is a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience performing breast lifts to help restore the best look and perkiness to your breasts.

Your Breast Lift Consultation

During your breast lift consultation with Dr. Kolder, you will be able to ask any questions you may have about the surgery. He will go over details of the procedure, such as surgical steps, benefits, and breast lift recovery. Breast lift before and after photos will also be available for you to get an idea of the kinds of results you can expect.

Some women may also benefit from combining their breast lift surgeries with breast implants. This will help to avoid a flat appearance of the breasts and achieves a more natural shape.

The Breast Lift Procedure

Your breast lift will be performed under general anesthesia at our Ambulatory Surgery Center. An incision will be made in the breast to reshape the underlying tissue and remove any excess skin to help elevate the breasts. If combining with a breast augmentation, breast implants will also be placed at this time.

Recovering from a Breast Lift

There will be some bruising, swelling and slight discomfort or tightness after your breast lift surgery. These conditions are temporary, and you may feel well enough to return to work within 1 to 2 weeks after surgery. You will need to wear a surgical bra 24 hours a day for 2 weeks to help aid in the healing process. You should wait 4 to 6 weeks before resuming exercise.

Breast Lift Results

You will notice an immediate difference in the shape and position of your breasts, and your results will only get better as your body heals from surgery.

Your breast lift will help to restore a more youthful appearance of your breasts, significantly reducing any sagging or downward pointing of your breasts or nipples.

Women are often thrilled with their new figure, and feel more confident in everything from a sexy bikini to a simple t-shirt.

Breast Lift FAQs

Breast lifts are designed to treat a variety of different breast concerns. Droopy breasts, often due to age, pregnancy or gravity are able to be lifted to a higher, more youthful appearance.
As you age, changes occur in the fatty breast tissue, often resulting in a loss of firmness in the breast. A breast lift can address and reshape this breast tissue, resulting in increased firmness and improved texture, as well as overall appearance.

A breast lift is designed to alter the contour and position of your breasts but should not significantly change the size of your breasts. If you are looking to increase or reduce your breast size, you may want to consider breast augmentation or reduction. Often these can be done at the same time as your breast lift.

While a breast lift is a relatively safe procedure, all surgeries pose potential risks. Some of the possible risks associated with a breast lift include:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Anesthesia complications
  • Changes in sensation
  • Temporary pain and discomfort
  • Blood clots
  • Breast asymmetry

A breast lift is able to address changes in the breasts, such as sagging, loss of shape, nipples that point downward, stretched breast skin, enlarged areolas and breast asymmetry — where one breast sits lower than the other. If you are bothered by any of these concerns, chances are a breast lift is a good option. Ideal candidates should be in good health, at a stable weight and a non-smoker.

Breast lifts do not impair the function of the breast, so having children after a breast lift should not cause any complications. However, weight gain and breast tissue changes that happen during pregnancy can reverse the results of a breast lift. Ideally, you want to plan a breast lift after you are done having children.

While everyone heals differently, it is common for breast lift incisions to appear red and raised for a few months after your breast lift. These scars typically fade over time.
