Breast Lift

When performed by Dr. Thomas McNemar, a breast lift raises and reshapes lax, flattened breasts. Women from Stockton and Modesto choose breast lift when gravity and the loss of the skin’s natural elasticity over time has caused their breasts to sag and age. These factors, combined with pregnancies and nursing will often cause the breasts to lose their youthful shape and firmness.

What Is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also called mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the breasts. The procedure is performed to provide one or a combination of the following improvements:

  • Restoring volume in the upper breast
  • Tightening stretched skin
  • Lifting sagging breast tissue
  • Raising droopy nipples to the center of the breast mound
  • Reducing the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple)

Breast implants inserted in conjunction with a breast lift procedure can increase both firmness and size. Cosmetic surgery to improve breast appearance is helping women achieve their ideal look.

Your Breast Lift

This procedure corrects loose, sagging breasts by reshaping the breasts, raising the nipples to a higher position and restoring breast firmness. Breast lift involves surgical removal of excess skin to raise the nipple and tighten the breast tissue. Incision patterns may vary, depending on degree of skin excess and amount of lifting required as well as patient and surgeon preference.

Common patterns include inverted T (incision around the areola, vertically down to a horizontal incision along the breast crease), vertical (incision around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease) and periareolar (incision around the areola). Dr. McNemar generally performs breast lifts under local anesthesia with sedation as an outpatient cosmetic surgery procedure. Women may choose to combine their lift with a breast reduction or breast augmentation.

Breast Lift Recovery

Swelling usually follows the procedure but in most cases subsides in 2 to 4 weeks. Breast shape may take 1 to 3 months to fully refine, with continued flattening and fading of incision lines for up to 1 year.
