Breast Lift in San Diego, CA

What Is A Breast Lift?

Also known an mastopexy, a breast lift is an aesthetic procedure designed to reshape the breasts by trimming away excess tissue and surgically tightening the skin to give you a more youthful, healthier look. This life-changing surgery is performed for women who have lost breast fullness and shape and who are experiencing breast drooping due to aging and gravity, as well as weight loss or pregnancy. Huge advancements in mastopexy techniques have made this aesthetic surgery so effective. At Rodriguez Plastic Surgery, we're pleased to offer breast lifts for San Diego, CA patients who want to redefine their appearance. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Jose Rodriguez to learn more about our practice's advanced breast lift techniques and the amazing results you can expect.

How Does Breast Lift Surgery Work?

Breast lift surgery at our San Diego, CA office takes usually two hours or more and is performed using general anesthesia. The duration of this treatment is dependent on the complexity of breast size and sagging. The method used for cosmetic breast lift surgery typically falls under two categories according to the location and type of the incision. The inverted-T (known as an anchor) and the straight line vertical incisions are the most used methods. After making the incision, any loose skin is excised along with excess fat and tissue. The skin is then pulled tight, and the breasts are lifted so they look healthy and younger. In most situations, the size of the areola is decreased to be symmetric with the new placement and shape of the breast. If you're also receiving a breast augmentation, Dr. Rodriguez will use this opportunity to place the implants.

What Are the Benefits of Breast Lift Surgery?

In many cases, a patient who thinks they need breast augmentation may actually benefit more from a breast lift. Here are some of the benefits you can expect with a breast lift procedure at Rodriguez Plastic Surgery:

  • Improves breasts' contour, profile, and symmetry
  • Gives the breasts a perkier, more youthful look
  • Can be combined with breast augmentation for a fuller appearance
  • Relocates the nipples to eliminate a droopy appearance
  • Addresses changes to the breasts caused by age, pregnancy, weight loss, or other life events
  • May reduce chafing under the breasts
  • Provides lasting results
