Breast Lift Surgery in San Diego By Dr. Jaibaji
What Is Breast Lift Surgery?
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, raises, firms and re-contours the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast.
Breast Lift surgery raises and reshapes sagging breast. Sagging breasts may be due to past pregnancies, genetics, weight gain or weight loss, and aging.
To achieve your optimal result, your breast lift may be combined with a breast augmentation. Many times a breast augmentation combined with a breast lift is considered part of a San Diego Mommy Makeover.
Common Types of Breast Lift Procedures
Below we list the most common types of Breast Lift surgeries offered by Dr. Jaibaji in San Diego.
This type of Breast Lift is commonly used for small adjustments to the nipple/areola position. It is named for the shape of the skin that is removed. Dr. Jaibaji, following careful marking, will draw a crescent over the top of the areola. The crescent of the skin about the areola is removed and area is then closed, allowing a lift of the nipple and areola.
PeriAreolar Lift (Donut Lift)
Also known as Benelli lift, this breast lift is made with the incision around the areolar. We are able to offer a vertical lift of approximately one to two centimeters.
Vertical Lift (Lollipop Lift)
A lollipop breast lift combines the PeriAreolar Lift with a vertical incision. The side to side closure of the vertical incision pinches the lower bole of the breast and helps push the nipple-areolar complex further up on the breast.
Inverted T Mastopexy
This procedure gets its name from the shape of the incision. This is the most common and versatile breast lift performed. This procedure lifts and reshapes the breast.
Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation in San Diego
Patient who seek a breast lift commonly ask about augmentation with the lift. Either saline or silicone implants can be used at the same time as your breast lift surgery. The main advantage of augmentation is to improve the upper pole fullness and give a more perky look to the lifted breast.
The implant used can be a round implant or a shaped implant. Dr. Jaibaji will discuss with you the implant that is appropriate for you. During your consultation with Dr. Moneer Jaibaji your hopes and expectations will be addressed.
Do I need Breast Lift?
This is a common question. The need for breast lift depends on several factors, the location of the nipple in relation to the infra mammary fold, the amount of excess skin, the size of the areola and the patient’s desire and expectations. During your breast lift consultation with Dr. Jaibaji, he will examine your breast and determine if you need a lift. He will also discuss with you the type of breast lift that is best for you.
