Why breast lift 

A surgical breast lift is a body contouring procedure that lifts and tightens the breasts by reducing loose skin and reshaping the breasts to produce a more youthful look. This cosmetic breast surgery is offered for women who have lost breast fullness and shape and who are experiencing breast sagging due to aging and gravity, as well as weight loss or pregnancy. Medical breakthroughs in mastopexy techniques have made this aesthetic surgery so effective that new statistics released by the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) show around 70% increase in demand for the procedure since 2000. Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz, a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, CA, performs this cosmetic breast surgery using the most advanced methods, delicately choosing the proper technique depending on the degree of sagging present in addition to the desired aesthetic goal.

signature breast lift

Clients that would benefit from a signature breast lift are healthy women that have finished breastfeeding, and would like an improvement in the their breasts shape and appearance. A signature breast lift can not only elevate your breasts to a more attractive position on your chest, but many clients are pleased to notice that they also fit better in clothing and swimwear, and have a restored sense of self-confidence after the procedure. Depending on your individual needs, a signature breast lift can also be performed with other breast surgeries such as breast augmentation or breast reduction. 

 

Incision Types

There are several methods that Dr. Schwartz may use to lift your breasts. 

The Periareolar Lift 

Dr. Schwartz performs this if the amount of lift and repositioning of the areola is not a lot. It is more commonly performed in conjunction with a breast implant known as augmentation mastopexy. The advantage of this type of lift is that the incision scar is nicely hidden within the darker contours of the areola complex.

The Vertical Lift

Also known as a "Lollipop" lift  since the incision goes around the areola and then extends down the front of the breast to the breast crease, resembling the shape of a lollipop. With this type of lift, Dr. Schwartz can re-contour the breast tissue while improving placement of the nipple. The result is a more youthful shape.

The Wise Pattern Lift 

The wise pattern lift is also described as an "Inverted T" or an "Anchor" lift. This lift utilizes an incision that goes around the areola, down the front of breast and across the bottom near the crease. Dr Schwartz places the underneath incision a little bit in front of the crease so that it does not interfere with wearing underwire bras. If breast ptosis (sagging) is severe and the nipples hang quite low, then this is the best approach to creating a lifted, youthful breast.

lipolift® for breast lifting

Clients with drooping or sagging breasts may benefit from Dr Schwartz own signature LipoLift® procedure to restore the positioning of the breasts and create a more youthful shape and appearance. During a personalized consultation Dr Schwartz will discuss if you are a candidate for this procedure.

Schwartz rapid recuperation™

Due to Dr Schwartz's recuperation protocol, most clients are out to dinner the next evening after surgery. Over 90% of clients undergoing this procedure only take ibuprofen or  tylenol and can return to work in a few a days.

Breast Lift FAQs

Breast Lift or Implants?

While implants may add volume to deflated breasts, a breast augmentation cannot correct breast sagging or skin laxity. A breast lift is the only procedure where excess skin is removed and the breasts are repositioned higher on the chest wall. If a lack of volume is a concern for you, a breast augmentation may be part of the overall treatment plan you decide on during your initial consultation with Dr. Schwartz. 

Nipple/Areola Placement?

The placement of your nipples has a big impact on your breasts appearance. Not only will the nipple areola complex be repositioned to a higher position during your breast lift, but stretched out or enlarged areolas can also be reduced during your procedure, helping to create a better proportioned and more natural looking result.

What About Scarring?

Dr Schwartz employs his own technique known as Schwartz Scar Secure™. Scars are an unavoidable part of breast lift surgery, but Dr Schwartz uses knowledge gained from FDA clinical trials on breast scarring as well as his own patient satisfaction by relieving tension on the incisions.  All of this is part of any surgery Dr Schwartz performs. 

Breast Reduction?

If you have overly large, disproportional breasts that sit very low on your chest or stomach, then a signature breast lift and breast reduction may be performed at the same time. Dr Schwartz will also discuss the possibility of performing his very own LipoLift® procedure.
