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.

Patient Stories

After losing more than 200 pounds, Cindy turned to Dr. McNemar to refresh her body. In her real patient story, she talks candidly about her successful body contouring procedures, including a breast lift.

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.

Love love love my new breast! Since, my first consultation I felt confident about his experience. Dr. McNemar was very attentive to my needs and questions. He was direct and honest. Not to mention his great reviews on YELP, Real Self website and Google I was confident about his great work. I had a breast augmentation in late April, 2021 and since then, I cannot feel happier with my body. I always recommend his work. In addition, I love the goodie bag given prior my surgery :). Thank you!!

First off my procedure is not done until 1/20/21! Up until now I want to say that the Dr. Mc Nemar made me feel so comfortable. He was patient and kind as well as informative to all my questions. This is not my first cosmetic procedure. I have done my homework with what I am about to have done. I want to say that both Jasmin and Nash the office staff have always had a concern with all that I have come to ask and request. For that I would like to say thank you! Even today I received a call from Jasmin providing me with information that she did not have to provide. She went over and beyond and I wanted to acknowledge this. We as patients pay a lot of money and are faced with anxiety and many questions. When the office will provide you with all you need to make you comfortable that speak volumes. I am excited and can’t wait to have my procedure done with Dr Mc Nemar. I will come back I am sure with yet another testimonial of excellence. I have people that are waiting to see my results

I am here to review on the microdermabrasion facial service provided by Deborah. My skin was awful with break outs , aging and dull for few years. So I have finally made an initial visit with Deborah in nov.2020. she explained what she can help me with and what she will be doing throughout each step of the facial and was very happy to have an open discussion about other options to consider that would benefit a woman my age and my skin care concerns. It was a relaxing and pampering experience. My skin conditions has improved A LOT by just 3 visits and I had the procedure this afternoon. Skin looks plump and hydrated. I am feeling 10 yrs younger and feeling fantastic. The ladies working reception & check out were pleasant & friendly. My experience at this Tracy office was extremely satisfying and I would highly recommend Deborah for any skin/facial service you are considering. Thanks Deborah & staffs at Dr. McNemar! From Lily
