Breast Lift done by Dr. Jacobson located in Beverly Hills, CA

Also known as a mastopexy, a breast lift is designed to lift and reshape breasts that have sagged lower over time. Dr. Joshua Jacobson, a board-certified plastic surgeon, regularly performs breast lifts in Beverly Hills for patients looking for a more youthful appearance.

What Is a Breast Lift?

A mastopexy is a surgical procedure that can restore a more elevated breast position by removing excess, stretched skin from the area. Breast tissue is also lifted and remodeled to ensure a symmetrical, aesthetic final outcome. Additionally, a breast lift can include areola reduction and nipple repositioning.

A breast lift results in tighter, rounder breasts, but not a change in size. If you desire larger or smaller breasts in addition to a higher breast position, Dr. Jacobson may recommend a breast lift with breast augmentation or a breast lift with breast reduction.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?

Ideal breast lift candidates are those who have lost firmness and elasticity from one or more of the following causes:

  • Aging
  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Weight fluctuations
Candidates for breast lift surgery often have breasts with an elongated and flatter shape and may have downward-pointing nipples. The areolas can be larger than they used to be at a younger age as well. Women with these symptoms can experience a lack of confidence in their physical appearance, which can be addressed through this cosmetic procedure.

The Breast Lift Consultation

During your breast lift consultation, Dr. Jacobson will examine your breasts to determine if you would be a good candidate for this treatment. He may take measurements and pre-op photos for surgical planning.

If you are approved for breast lift surgery, Dr. Jacobson will ask you to stop smoking six weeks before and after your procedure. Patients may also be required to stop taking aspirin or anti-inflammatories one week prior to the operation day.

What to Expect During Breast Lift Surgery

To begin, anesthesia will be administered. Once Dr. Jacobson is assured of your comfort, he will create the necessary incisions. Breast lifts typically involve one of the following incision techniques:

  • Circle (around the areola)
  • Lollipop (around the areola with an additional vertical line from the lower edge of the areola down to the crease)
  • Anchor (around the areola with a vertical line down to the crease and another line along the breast crease)
There are other less common variations as well. In every case, Dr. Jacobson selects a patient’s incision type based on their anatomy and goals for the procedure.
Once the incisions are made, Dr. Jacobson will excise excess skin, lift and shape the breast tissue, and place sutures to hold the tissue in its new position. If needed, the nipple location can be raised, and the areola can be made smaller. When all changes have been made, Dr. Jacobson will close the incisions.

What to Expect After Breast Lift Surgery

After breast lift surgery, you’ll have bandages or a surgical support bra to reduce swelling and ensure the breasts adhere to their new position. Patients are usually required to wear this support garment for a few weeks. Small tubes may also be left in the incisions temporarily to allow any excess blood or fluid to drain.

A breast lift is typically an outpatient procedure, but you’ll need someone to drive you home. A week or so of downtime is necessary following breast lift surgery. Since you’ll likely be required to sleep on your back with your chest raised, investing in a reclining or “reading” pillow might be a good idea.
Your return to work and intense physical activities will depend on the doctor’s orders. Patients can expect to see their final breast lift results after several weeks of healing.

How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost?

The overall cost of your breast lift will reflect the extent of your customized procedure and includes facility and anesthesia fees. Additional costs will apply if you combine your mastopexy with a breast reduction or augmentation. A more specific price can be determined during your initial examination.
