what is A Breast Lift?

A breast lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to improve the shape and position of the breasts. The procedure is typically performed on women who have experienced sagging or drooping of the breasts due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging. During a breast lift, the surgeon removes excess skin and tightens the underlying breast tissue to lift and reshape the breasts. The nipple and areola may also be repositioned to a higher position on the breast. A breast lift does not significantly change the size of the breasts, but it can improve their appearance and give them a more youthful and perky shape. Breast lift surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and can take several hours to complete. Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the breast lift performed, but most patients can expect to take several weeks off from work and other normal activities while they heal.

CANDIDATE FOR a Breast Lift?

A typical Beverly Hills breast lift candidate experiences some drooping and sagging of the breasts but does not necessarily wish to increase the size of the breasts. They may have sagging or droopiness as a result of aging, breastfeeding, weight fluctuation, weight loss, or genetic factors. They should also be generally healthy and at a stable weight. 

If you are considering a breast lift, here are the top five factors that may make you a good candidate:

  • Nipples pointing downward or beneath the breast crease 
  • Breast that have lost their shape, become deflated or elongated
  • Sagging or drooping of the breasts
  • Uneven breasts and nipple position
  • Excess stretched skin

One method of determining whether you would benefit from a breast lift is known as the “pencil test.” This involves placing a pencil as high as possible at the lower crease of the breasts and under the fold. If the pencil is held in place and the nipples droop below the pencil, you may benefit from a breast lift. 

HOW IS A Breast Lift


After your Los Angeles breast lift surgery, you can expect to feel some soreness and experience mild swelling. Dr. Ourian will prescribe pain medication to help alleviate discomfort. Ice can help to reduce swelling, as well as wearing a supportive surgical bra. You will be required to wear this supportive bra for between two and three weeks following surgery.

Most patients rest and recover for about one week before returning to their daily activities. Most swelling and bruising should subsid within two weeks. You should avoid strenuous activities and exercise, especially heavy lifting, for at least four weeks after your breast lift. Dr. Ourian will monitor your healing through follow-up appointments after your breast lift. 

WHAT IS Breast Lift


The recovery process after a breast lift varies from patient to patient, but there are some general guidelines to keep in mind. Immediately following the surgery, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the breasts, which can be managed with pain medication prescribed by the surgeon. Patients should avoid any strenuous activity, including lifting heavy objects, for several weeks following the procedure.

Most patients can return to work and normal daily activities within one to two weeks after the surgery, but should avoid any activities that could put pressure on the breasts or compromise the incision sites. The surgeon may recommend wearing a supportive bra for several weeks to aid in the healing process and provide added comfort.

It’s important to attend all follow-up appointments with the surgeon to monitor the healing process and ensure there are no complications. Full recovery can take several weeks to several months, depending on the extent of the surgery performed and the individual patient’s healing process. Patients should follow their surgeon’s post-operative instructions closely to ensure optimal results and a smooth recovery.
