The Perfect Time for Breast Lift

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Many women feel higher self-esteem in their bras than out of them. This is often due to the modern bra’s ability to lift and add volume with a few simple hook-eye closures hidden by lace. Often, patients we see for a breast lift in Los Angeles have postponed surgery due to the bra’s ability to hide their need for lifts. But after the procedure, we hear a lot of them saying they wish they hadn’t waited so long to get their bodies back.

Following pregnancy, women commonly find that their breasts lack the youthful appearance they had prior to giving birth. Although this may be bothersome, patients often delay surgery because they are afraid the sagging appearance will return with age. A breast lift, though, can be a long-lasting way to bounce back from pregnancy, and delaying the procedure may postpone the emotional benefits cosmetic surgery can provide.

I created The Stevens Laser Bra, which provides additional support with an internal structure made with a patient’s own tissue. This is the ideal option for women who want a lasting solution to sagging breasts. With this innovative technique, women can choose to have surgery earlier in life.

3 Myths About Breast Lift Surgery Debunked

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

It’s surprising that despite the effectiveness of beast lift in Los Angeles, there are so many myths associated with this treatment. It’s important that people have access to facts regarding potential procedures so they can make informed decisions.

Breast lifts help women counteract the effects of gravity, aging, weight fluctuation and pregnancy on their breasts. All of these factors can cause skin laxity, resulting in sagging breasts. Here are the facts behind three common myths that all women considering breast lift surgery should know:

Myth: You have to get breast implants when you have a breast lift.

Fact: Breast lifts are for women who desire an enhanced breast shape. Not only are breast implants not required as part of a breast lift, but women commonly opt not to augment the size of their breasts. Breast lifts can help you achieve a more youthful shape through the removal of excess skin, tissue and fat, but some patients opt to combine this procedure with breast augmentation, which does require implants.

Myth: A breast lift involves a lengthy recovery period.

Fact: Thanks to advances in techniques, recovery time for breast lift surgery is short. The amount of time will depend on the extent of your surgery, and this is best discussed with your surgeon during a pre-surgery consultation. I use gentle techniques to minimize trauma during surgery, so patients are able to get back to their regular routines relatively soon.

Myth: Breast lift produces noticeable scarring.

Fact: Patients who do not require an extensive procedure can opt for an incision around the areola, which is hardly visible following healing. Surgeons can also use incisions that are easily hidden by most bikini tops.

3 Benefits of a Breast Lift

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Breast lift surgery is among one of the most popular breast enhancement procedures. Many different types of women turn to breast lift surgery to help improve the appearance of sagging breasts, either due to having children, the natural aging process, or both.

Many of my Los Angeles breast lift patients report that they noticed both physical and psychological benefits after having their procedure. Below are 3 specific benefits that a breast lift may include:

  1. The breasts can be positioned to appear more proportionate and elevated, in order to provide a more youthful position.
  2. The surgeon can remove excess skin that contributes to a sagging or aged appearance, and tighten the breast skin to achieve a firm look.
  3. A breast lift can improve self-esteem and self-confidence, which contributes to overall happiness.

For women who are appropriate candidates, a breast lift can be a very satisfying procedure, both for physical and psychological reasons. What is your experience with breast lift surgery? How have you benefited from the procedure?
