What a Breast Lift is and What it Handles

A breast lift in La Jolla, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure aimed at rejuvenating and reshaping sagging breasts. By removing excess skin, repositioning the nipple, and restoring breast firmness, a breast lift addresses various aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Sagging or drooping breasts due to aging or pregnancy.
  • Nipple and areola positioning that point downward.
  • Loss of breast volume and shape.
  • Uneven or asymmetrical breast appearance.
  • Stretch marks or skin laxity around the breasts.

Who is a Candidate for a Breast Lift?

While breast augmentation focuses on enhancing size and volume, a breast lift offers a distinct advantage by addressing sagging and reshaping the breasts for a more youthful profile. Your consultation with Dr. Bolitho will include a detailed discussion of your desired aesthetic outcome and he may recommend a mammogram due to age or medical family history. The optimal candidates for a breast lift procedure are:

  • Adult women in good health.
  • Women with clear and realistic breast lift expectations.
  • Individuals who have thoroughly contemplated the procedure.
  • Women who have completed their childbearing phase to avoid potential breast stretching during future pregnancies.
  • Individuals in good health without medical conditions that could hinder surgery or recovery.

Is a Breast Lift for Me?

This procedure offers many benefits for individuals seeking a rejuvenating effect without going so far as full breast augmentation. Here are some compelling reasons why a breast lift may be beneficial:

  • Youthful Contours: A breast lift restores a more youthful breast contour by lifting and reshaping sagging breasts.
  • Improved Nipple Positioning: Repositioning the nipples higher on the breast enhances overall aesthetics.
  • Enhanced Firmness: The procedure firms and tightens breast tissue, providing a more uplifted and youthful appearance.
  • Aesthetic Symmetry: Addressing asymmetry creates a more balanced and harmonious breast profile.
  • Confidence Boost: A rejuvenated breast appearance often leads to increased self-confidence and body positivity.

Breast Lift Techniques

There are diverse techniques employed in breast lift procedures, each tailored to specific needs and desired outcomes:

  • Crescent Breast Lift: Involves a small crescent-shaped incision around the upper edge of the areola, suitable for mild sagging.
  • Benelli Mastopexy: Utilizes a circular incision around the areola also known as a circumareolar mastopexy, addressing moderate sagging and nipple positioning.
  • Circumvertical Mastopexy: Features a vertical incision, often referred to as a "lollipop" incision, addressing moderate sagging with a natural outcome.
  • Full Breast Lift: Incorporates a vertical incision along with a horizontal incision along the breast fold, suitable for significant sagging and breast reshaping. Also known as ‘Inverted T’ or “Wise Pattern”.
