About breast lift surgery

Mastopexy (known as a breast lift) is a body contouring procedure that raises the breasts by trimming away loose skin and surgically tightening the remaining tissue to result in a more youthful and healthier look. This life-changing surgery is performed for women who have lost breast firmness, size, and shape and who are experiencing breast drooping (called ptosis) due to aging, significant weight loss, or nursing. Outstanding advancements in mastopexy techniques have made this procedure so effective and successful that new statistics by the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) reveal nearly a 70% increase in demand since 2000. William P. Aiello, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Los Alamitos, CA, performs this procedure at Ocean Plastic Surgery Center. He is reputed as one of the top Orange County breast surgeons and has years of experience providing happy outcomes on many different breast sizes and shapes. By utilizing the latest methods, Dr. Aiello can choose the appropriate technique based upon the degree of sag present and the desired result.

Ideal candidates for a breast lift

Ideal candidates for a breast lift

You may come to Ocean Plastic Surgery Center wanting breast implants, but after a private assessment, you may discover that breast lift surgery is a better option. This is due to the amount of sagging you are experiencing. Breasts that have lost elasticity usually need skin removal and tightening surgery to reduce skin looseness and bring the breasts to a perkier position. If you have nipples that droop downward and your breasts sag significantly below the crease line, a breast lift can dramatically help their appearance.

What to expect from a breast lift

Recovery for any type of breast lift is more extensive than surgery with implants only. After the procedure, you will wear a medical compression bra to assist with swelling. A thin tube is also inserted near the location of the incision to help with excess fluid leakage that can often occur after surgery. After surgery, the swelling usually goes away within several days. Dr. Aiello or a member of his team will provide in-depth home care instructions to help with your healing process. Aesthetic results after a breast lift surgery begin to take shape after a few weeks as the breasts take their higher placement on your bustline. Your breasts will feel and appear natural, and you will feel healthy and beautiful.

Frequently asked questions for a breast lift

How much does a breast lift cost?
During your initial appointment, Dr. Aiello will listen to your wants and goals before creating your personal treatment plan. Following that, he can estimate your price. When done well, a breast lift will significantly enhance your physical appearance so it is important to concentrate on having a skilled surgeon with years of training, like Dr. Aiello, rather than prices. To help make surgery affordable, Ocean Plastic Surgery Center will help you find low-interest financing.
Do I need a breast lift or breast implants?
Whether you should have a breast lift, implants, or both depends on your specific goals. Oftentimes, a breast lift will enhance the form and fullness of your breasts with no need for implants. Dr. Aiello will evaluate your physical condition and listen to your goals at your consultation and then make a decision on whether you would benefit from implants, a lift, or an augmentation plus a lift.
Will I have more cleavage after a breast lift?
No, most likely not. A breast lift does remove excess skin, making the breasts tighter and bringing the nipples back into an aesthetic position on the breasts. However, the lift does not increase volume. By repositioning the existing tissue, some fullness in the upper part of the breasts may be restored, but this is not always the case. In those that desire increased volume or extensive upper breast fullness, a breast implant is needed in addition to a mastopexy.
Will my nipples be moved?
Generally, the nipple-areola complex will be moved up in the breast lift. If your areolas are excessively large or stretched, Dr. Aiello can incorporate an areola reduction in your surgery. This may be discussed during your appointment so he can choose the ideal incision pattern to use in your breast lift.
How long will my results last?
A mastopexy will provide great, long-lasting results; however, your results can diminish due to aging and other life changes. To answer this question, you have to consider how your breasts have changed over time and why. Weight gain adds a lot of excess tissue to the breasts, and if this weight is lost, it’s possible that there will be sagging. Pregnancy also makes a big impact on breast tissue. A breast lift is a permanent procedure. However, even though your results will be long-lasting, no surgery is able to stop the aging process. Breasts will change over time purely from the effects of gravity.
Can a breast lift fix asymmetry?
A lift may improve asymmetry in your breasts if they're different in size, firmness, or level of sagging. Dr. Aiello will evaluate the appearance and condition of your breasts in your consultation and talk about how a lift could be able to help. In your lift surgery, he will adjust the tissue so your breasts are equal in position and size for symmetry.
