Breasts, like everything else in this world, obey the law of gravity. With age, gravity acts on the soft, elastic tissues of the breast, making them “ptotic,” or saggy. Gravity pulls on the soft tissue, and it loses its ability to bounce back. This ptosis is especially dramatic in women who have nursed their babies. Women from Manhattan Beach, Long Beach, and throughout the South Bay seek breast lift surgery (mastopexy) in Torrance from our highly skilled surgeons, who can correct sagging and restore a youthful look and feel to the breasts.
The Benefits of a Breast Lift
Mastopexy can drastically reduce ptosis, and even give breasts a “perky” look. It is usually necessary to combine breast augmentation with a breast lift to restore fullness and give the breasts a natural look. In other cases, a breast lift may be combined with breast reduction. In an office consultation, our surgeons assess each breast lift patient, take measurements, and recommend a surgical approach that will give the desired result.
Traditional breast lift procedures involve tightening of the skin around the breast to give the breast a new shape. More recent techniques of lifting the breast involve tightening of the skin as well as reshaping the underlying breast tissue. This new technique is commonly referred to as a vertical breast lift. The most significant benefit of a vertical breast lift is improved breast shape with more breast projection. In fact, many of our breast lift patients achieve the improved shape and projection associated with breast implants without a breast augmentation procedure.
Other benefits of a vertical breast lift include longer lasting results and shorter incision scars.
Our surgeons discuss the various breast lift incision options with you during your private consultation. A physical exam to assess the degree of sagging (also called ptosis) and the quality of your skin tone, combined with a discussion of your aesthetic goals, helps your surgeon create a surgical plan that will get the best results for you.
Breast Lift after Massive Weight Loss
While losing a lot of weight can be great for the body, it can be devastating to the breasts. What was once full and voluptuous can now look flat and droopy, and few women – if any – want that. We specialize in post weight loss breast procedures to restore the breasts to a more youthful appearance and position. Breasts are repositioned higher on the chest wall and excess tissue is removed. Nipples are also repositioned and often made smaller to be in proportion with the new breast size.
