Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica
A woman’s breasts are susceptible to the effects of aging, just like any other part of the body. Age, combined with factors like pregnancy, weight loss, and breastfeeding, can cause breast appearances to change over time. Ptosis, the condition of sagging in the breasts, can make you feel self-conscious or embarrassed, and it may also make finding comfortable bras difficult.
The breast lift procedure is a perfect solution for combating sagging breasts. Also called a mastopexy, the breast lift repositions the nipple and removes excess skin to create a more youthful breast shape. Ptosis can be substantially improved or even eliminated with this technique.
Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim has helped many women reduce or eliminate sagging issues with a breast lift. After your recovery from a breast lift, you will have a fuller breast appearance with a rejuvenated shape. Your breast lift can also improve breast symmetry to achieve a sense of balance in the chest area.
How Dr. Kim Performs a Breast Lift
Essentially, the breast lift procedure involves tightening the loose skin surrounding the breasts and repositioning the nipple to a higher location. The underlying breast tissue may also be reshaped if necessary to achieve the best results. Ideally, the breasts will appear shapelier and somewhat perky, as is typical in younger women.
Before your surgery, Dr. Kim and his team will explain each step in detail and give you a clearer understanding of what the final results will look like using a digital imaging system. Our patients find that viewing before and after photos of other breast lift patients is also a great way to understand the changes and see what results are possible.
Adding Breast Implants
Depending on your unique aesthetic goals, Dr. Kim may recommend breast augmentation in combination with a breast lift for enhanced results. Many women are able to achieve the look of larger breasts with the breast lift alone.
