Restoring the body that you desire is possible with the proven results that a breast lift provides. New developments have made lifts far more effective and easier to perform than they ever were in the past. Many women have already trusted our expert team at Tiner Cosmetic in Pasadena, CA to help them look and feel their very best. Come see us to learn the options you have to achieve the appearance you want to show to the world.
What Is a Breast Lift?
Taking only a few hours to perform, lifts are outpatient treatments that can be performed conveniently. Most people will likely only need one lift throughout the course of their lifetime, as the results are long-lasting. After the lift is performed, the majority of patients find their breasts stay right in the desired position.
Your specific treatment will be personalized to your unique body, but the basic procedure is to raise the breast tissue and take away any extra skin. If you find it an aesthetically appealing option, we can also reduce the size of the areola during the lift. Our team will work with you and discover your aesthetic goals to develop an individualized plan that works best for you.
Different Types of Lift
There are two basic kinds of breast lift that can be used to achieve the look you’re going for: vertical mastopexy and incision mastopexy. Both types of procedure will be presented to you in thorough detail during your first consultation. We’ll go over the advantages each option offers and work with you to help you find the option that best suits your goals.
Further Breast Augmentation or Reduction
Once the lift is performed, some patients also desire larger breasts to go with the new look, which can be achieved with a follow-up breast augmentation or reduction if you so choose. Talk about your image goals and desires with our team if this is an option that you would like to pursue. We’ll help you find the right solutions to get you the body that you want.
Who Is This Treatment For?
People choose to have their breast lifted for a variety of reasons. As gravity and the natural aging process takes their toll, previously high and perky breasts move lower on the torso, and nipples may point downwards rather than outwards. Multiple pregnancies, as well as weight loss or weight gain, can have an impact on the breasts’ appearance as well.
Anybody who desires the youthful body they once had and a boost to the elasticity in their chests can benefit from this treatment. The good news is that virtually anybody can get the body they desire back using this easy treatment option.
Benefits You’ll Enjoy
You’ll experience a wide range of benefits immediately following your breast lift, including these as just some of what you’ll notice:
- Perkier, rounder breasts
- Slimmed-down appearance
- Better look to the areola
- Increased self-esteem
- Better fit to your clothes
Other benefits include better intimacy with your partner that comes from your new enhanced sense of confidence and body image, as well as the ability to wear swimsuits and tops that you may otherwise have passed on because of how your chest appeared in them prior to the lift.
Further Breast Treatments
All of your breast concerns can be addressed with the variety of different treatments our team can offer you. Combining more than one of these treatments to get the results you desire is also an option. We’ll work with you to find the best course of action to get to the specific, individual wants and needs you have for your body. We want you to be happy with every step of the process, as well as with the confidence-boosting results you end up with.
You can achieve larger, fuller breasts by undergoing breast augmentation treatment at the hands of our experienced team. Some breast lift patients decide to follow up their treatment with a breast augmentation as well, particularly if their breasts appear narrow or thin. There are a few different augmentation options to choose from, and our team can provide you with all of the details about each one. Any of these safe and effective methods can get you the body that you desire.
Saltwater-based saline implants provide your breasts with a natural, firm feel. This treatment has been FDA-approved for any woman over the age of 18 and is best for patients with more native breast tissue.
Another way to get augmentation while retaining the natural feel of native breast tissue is to use silicone implants. The gel-like material that these implants are made from can reshape your breasts and also increase their volume. This treatment is suitable for patients who are at least 22 years of age.
Autologous Breast Fat Transfer
Another innovative new option for breast augmentation is to use your body’s own excess fat to reshape and enhance the breasts. Two of the main benefits of using this method are that you get to remove unwanted fat from other areas of your body, and there is a reduced chance of an allergic reaction because the treatment uses your own tissue. If you decide you want augmentation, talk to our team to help find the option that works best for you.
As opposed to augmentation, some patients may desire to reduce the size of their breasts as a follow-up to their breast lift. Whether you would simply prefer the aesthetics of smaller breasts, you find too-large breasts to be cumbersome, or you are looking to improve health complaints like back issues or poor posture, this treatment may be an attractive option for you.
You could even improve the health of tissue in your shoulder as there is less tension caused by bra straps digging in. Smaller breasts also tend to sit higher on your frame, which you may prefer the look of. Having a breast reduction performed during your lift can give you a more streamlined look that you’ll love.
How To Best Maintain Your Results
You’ll notice a perkier and healthier-looking chest as an immediate benefit of undergoing treatment with our team, but there are certain lifestyle changes you can make to keep your breasts’ appearance nice and high after treatment. These various tips can help you maintain the body you desire for many years to come.
Investing in a good bra that fits you correctly and quitting smoking are two of the simple ways you can get longer-lasting results. You should also exercise regularly, particularly working out your pectoral muscles, and avoid too much sun exposure. The weight fluctuations that come from crash dieting can also be detrimental to the appearance of your breasts.
Get a Body That You Love
You don’t have to live any longer with breasts that simply aren’t what you want them to be. Our professional team will put our years of experience in the cosmetic surgery field to use to develop you a personalized, compassionate treatment plan that will take your needs into consideration every step of the way.
