“Is a breast lift the right option for me?” If you’re considering breast lift surgery at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa in San Diego, CA, that question means several things to you. You want a “lift,” physically and emotionally. You want to improve the shape of your breasts and how you feel about your body. When you’re looking at your breasts, it’s normal to want them to look better in and out of clothing.

A breast lift is the most effective procedure to lift and reshape breasts that are sagging due to past pregnancy, genetics, weight gain/loss, or aging. Breast lift surgery may also be helpful to reduce a large or stretched nipple-areolar complex.

How Is a Breast Lift Performed?

The breast lift procedure is done on an outpatient basis while you are under sedation and either local or general anesthesia. Incision patterns vary but usually include one incision around the nipple-areolar complex and one in the crease under the breast. The nipple-areolar complex is repositioned higher, excess skin is removed, and the breast is reshaped in a pleasing contour and position. The insertion of breast implants may or may not be advisable.

Should I Include Breast Implants With My Lift?

If you’re like most women, you hope that your breast sagging can be solved with breast implants, but whether that’s possible or not depends upon the degree of sagging (ptosis).

You may be able to get the result you want with a breast lift with augmentation. Combining breast augmentation with a breast lift can fill in your extra skin, increase the fullness of your upper breasts and generally make your breasts higher and larger. If nipple height is involved, then some type of breast lift is usually necessary.

Our Promises To You

What Is Breast Lift Recovery Like?

Many people are pleasantly surprised that breast lift recovery isn’t as uncomfortable or lengthy as they might have assumed. That being said, you’ll definitely want to take it easy for the first days, after which point you can begin easing back into your normal, everyday activities.

Most likely, you’ll be able to return to work within 1 to 2 weeks, as long as your job doesn’t require lifting or strenuous activity. You will need some help taking care of smaller children during your initial recovery period, as you will need to refrain from lifting and straining for about 4 weeks in most cases. Your surgeon will let you know when it’s okay to resume physical activities.

Your Safety Is
Our #1 Priority

Since 1988, more than 36,000 patients have had safe, successful procedures at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa.

What Do Breast Lift Scars Look Like?

Your breast lift scars will be below the nipple or under the breast crease so they are well-hidden by a bikini top. Also, scars will fade to fine lines during the months after surgery. You can help to minimize the appearance of your scars with self-massage (your surgeon or nurse will show you the correct technique) and with topical scar-minimizing products.

How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost in San Diego, CA?

The cost of a breast lift at our San Diego plastic surgery practice is typically $12,500 to $14,000. Your price may vary depending on the complexity of the procedure and whether you include implants. Get all the info you need about costs on our pricing page.
