Breast sagging is a natural result of aging as the skin loses its elasticity. If you find that your breasts have begun to flatten, sag, or point downward due to aging, weight changes, or pregnancy, there are surgical options for regaining your youthful appearance. A breast lift operation aims to reduce sagging by removing excess skin to create firmer and rounder breast contours. The procedure may also raise nipple position or reduce nipple size for a more proportional appearance.
Our clinic offers breast lifts in Tarzana to help restore your breasts’ contour and give you renewed confidence in your appearance. Though this surgery does not change your breast size, it can be performed simultaneously with other enhancement or reduction breast operations for additional chest changes. Discuss your cosmetic goals with our skilled plastic surgeons and learn how we can help you achieve them.
Over time, skin loses elasticity from various environmental and genetic factors, leading to a sagging breast appearance. Circumstances that lead to breast sagging include pregnancy, genetics, aging, gravity, weight changes, and pregnancy followed by breastfeeding. These events may result in excess skin around the breasts, which reduces breast shape and volume leading to a flatter, stretched chest appearance.
A mastopexy surgery at our Tarzana clinic provides the best results for individuals who maintain a consistent weight and do not plan on having any more children. Ideal candidates for a breast lift are those who wish to fix breast conditions such as:
A breast lift operation aims to improve the chest contours by raising the breasts, removing extra skin, and tightening tissue. Additionally, the procedure could reduce the size of nipples that have stretched over time and reposition their placement for a proportional look. The optimal results of a breast lift are contoured and uplifted breasts that create a youthful, yet natural chest appearance.
A mastopexy procedure is highly individualized to accommodate unique breast shapes, sizes, and cosmetic goals. However, it is important to remember that a breast lift only aims to change the breasts’ lower contours, not their size. If an individual wishes to change their breasts’ shape and upper contours, a breast lift could be accompanied by other surgical options such as a breast reduction or augmentation.
Results of a breast lift operation are not permanent, and the breasts will continue to be impacted by natural aging effects. However, maintaining a consistent weight may help preserve surgical results for longer.
