Elevating Your Breasts with a Breast Lift

Elevate your breasts to a more youthful, perky appearance with a breast lift in Santa Clarita, CA

You may have noticed that your breasts have begun to sag due to loss of skin elasticity.

Time, gravity, weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding may negatively affect the position and shape of your breasts, leading you to desire a breast lift (mastopexy) from Santa Clarita plastic surgeon Dr. Hu.

Dr. Hu is known for providing among the best breast lift outcomes in the Valencia, Santa Clarita area and beyond. In addition, his kind, patient and compassionate demeanor sets clients instantly at ease.

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure designed to eliminate sagging breasts by trimming and tightening the tissue that surrounds them. Our breast lift in Valencia is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis and may be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as a breast augmentation.

Benefits of a Breast Lift

A breast lift procedure helps tighten sagging skin, thereby making the breasts appear firmer and higher. While it does not necessarily change the size of the breasts, this lifting procedure can nonetheless make them appear fuller.

Dr. Hu will provide you with unlimited access to our Santa Clarita breast lift before and after photos.

Your results will vary based upon the amount of tightening you desire and the size and shape of your breasts.

How is a Breast Lift Performed in Santa Clarita?

Your breast lift in Valencia will be performed under general anesthesia.

Once this anesthesia takes effect, Dr. Hu will perform one of the following incisions based on your individual anatomy:

  • Crescent lift (the most minimal lift, leaving a slight scar on the upper areola)
  • Circumareolar lift (also called a donut lift, creating an incision around the areola)
  • Lollipop incision (incision running vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast crease)
  • Anchor lift (also called a Wise pattern, incision around the nipple, vertically from the bottom edge of the areola and then horizontally beneath the breast)

After making the incision, Dr. Hu will trim and tighten excess skin to help lift your breasts and make them appear fuller. In some cases, it might also be necessary to reduce the size of the areola to more closely match the contours of your new breast. If this is needed, Dr. Hu will trim excess skin and then reposition the nipple and areola to their proper location. If the patient desires, breast implants can be placed at the same time to achieve a fuller appearance while increasing the bra size.

Once this is accomplished, your wounds will be closed with dissolvable sutures, and you will be taken to a recovery area where you’ll be monitored for signs of complications. Recovery can take 30 minutes to 2 hours, after which you can be discharged home. You will be seen the following day for a quick check-up.
