Breast Lift Benefits in San Diego & La Jolla

What Are the Benefits of Breast Lift?

Although breast augmentation is the most popular breast enhancement procedure we perform at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center, it is not the only one. Breast lift can also improve the appearance of the breasts and help women feel beautiful and confident.

Take a moment to learn about the benefits of breast lift from Dr. Brad Mozaffari and Dr. Dennis Bucko.

Improves Breast Position

During breast lift, the plastic surgeon relocates flat, sagging breasts higher on the chest so the breasts look perkier and more youthful. Because of the modifications made during surgery, the breast tissue has more support and the breasts can maintain their newly improved position.

Perkier Breast Shape

Breast lift does not significantly change the size of the breasts, but it does improve their shape. By removing excess breast skin and reshaping the tissues, we can give “flat” or “deflated-looking” breasts a firmer and more attractive contour.

Keep in mind that some women opt to improve their breast shape and position by combining breast lift with breast augmentation. In a combination procedure, excess breast skin is removed, the natural breast tissue is reshaped and saline or silicone implants are placed to add fullness and volume, especially fullness in the upper part of the breast.

Improves Nipple Position and Projection

Another component of the breast lift procedure is that it improves the position and projection of downward-pointing nipples that sit low on the breasts. The nipple-areolar complex is repositioned higher on the breast mound and adjusted so the nipples look perkier. Oversized, stretched-out areolas can also be reduced if desired.

A common misconception in repositioning the nipple is that the nipple-areola complex is completely detached and then reattached to the breast, causing significant changes in nipple sensation. That is not the case and the nipple-areola complex stays attached during the entire procedure; therefore, the sensation does not change significantly after surgery.

Resolves Certain Health Issues

When a woman’s breasts are extremely saggy, sometimes the excess breast skin can chafe, become irritated or even develop infections. It may be difficult to keep clean and dry. Reducing this excess skin and tightening the remaining skin can help to resolve chafing, irritation and infections.

Enhances Self-Confidence

Improving the appearance of flat, sagging or drooping breasts usually has a positive effect on the patient’s self-image and self-confidence. When a woman is happy with her breasts, she often feels more secure in herself and more comfortable in her own skin. By creating a perkier breast appearance, breast lift can also help patients feel more youthful and vibrant.
