The Breast Lift Procedure

Breast lift surgery is done under general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep throughout the entire experience. To begin, Dr. Macias will create an incision in one of the following locations:

  • Peri-areolar: Around the areola
  • Vertical: Around the areola and down the front of the breast
  • Traditional: Around the areola, and extending down the front of the breast and along the breast crease

Through that opening, he will enhance your breast contour by elevating and reshaping the drooping tissue. If necessary, he will also reposition and resize the nipple and areola and remove lax, excess skin. Once your youthful chest has been restored, Dr. Macias will close the incisions with care to minimize scarring.

Breast Lift Recovery

The recovery period for a breast lift in Santa Monica is anywhere from four to six weeks. However, this can vary depending on your unique experience. The sutures are all dissolvable and do not need to be removed. By six weeks you should be fully recovered and enjoying your natural breast lift results!

FAQ Breast Lift

Will I lose nipple sensation?

Some sensation loss may occur during a breast lift because the nerves have been affected during the procedure.

Can I breastfeed after a breast lift?

Because the milk ducts must be disrupted during a breast lift, future breastfeeding may be affected. As such, we recommend waiting to undergo a breast lift until you are finished having children if you want to preserve your breastfeeding abilities.

Will I have scarring?

Yes, some scarring is inevitable following a breast lift. However, these scars will be very light and difficult to identify once you have fully healed. Learn more and contact us today to schedule a free consultation for arguably the best breast lift Marina del Rey has to offer.

How long is the procedure?

Although every breast lift procedure is unique, the surgery typically takes between one and three hours to complete.

Can insurance cover a breast lift?

Typically, your health insurance provider will only assist you with the cost of a breast lift if it’s being performed for medical reasons, such as alleviating severe back pain. If the surgery is purely cosmetic, insurance likely will not cover the cost.

How can I tell if I need a breast lift vs. breast augmentation?

Generally, a breast lift is ideal for patients looking to correct sagging breasts or raise the position of their breasts, whereas breast augmentation is meant to enhance breast size and shape. During your consultation with Dr. Macias, he will evaluate your situation to help you decide which procedure makes the most sense for you.

Should I wait until I stop having children?

Although there’s nothing wrong with having children after a breast lift, going through pregnancy may impact the results of the procedure. If you want to have the best odds of maintaining your results, you may want to wait until you’re done having children.

How long do results last?

On average, the results of a breast lift will last for approximately 10 to 15 years. However, many factors will determine how long your results last, including your lifestyle and whether or not you maintain a stable weight.
