Breast Implant Removal- what

What Is a Breast Lift?

A Breast Lift procedure is designed to improve excess skin and underlying tissues that have become loose and flabby. This is very common and can be a result of age, genetics, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or large amounts of weight loss. A breast lift may be combined with breast augmentation for a fuller look or may be performed on its own to give breasts a lift and a perkier appearance.

People could have droopy breasts for all kinds of reasons: weight loss, congenital factors, large sizes, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or aging could all play a role.

Liposuction, when strategically performed, could solve the problem of a young person’s large and relatively droopy breasts. In some cases, the nipples could rise more than one inch, after “weight loss” from the breast liposuction. The prerequisite is that the breast is large with thick fat and the skin elastic.

Circum-Areolar Lift

Circum-areolar lift (Donut lift or Benelli lift) works by having a donut-shaped piece of skin removed around the areola. While it could potentially remove some excess skin, it does flatten the breasts to some extent. The success of it depends on the integrity of placed thick permanent sutures around the areola just under the skin.

Short Scar Breast Lift

Short scar breast lift (Keyhole pattern breast lift) can be performed if the amount of skin in excess is mild to moderate. The skin is cinched at the inframammary fold vicinity to facilitate the closure of the excisional wounds, whereas the breast tissue is divided into medial and lateral flaps to allow for self-augmentation, by folding on each other, resulting in a very perky look when everything heals. And the upper poles in the “V” area become naturally fuller. So, instead of making the breasts into the usual flat and small “pancakes” when the traditional method of mastopexy is employed, Dr. Yu is always able to turn his patients’ droopy breasts into something that they could only have when young: full, round, and perky! Dr. Yu invented his own technique and has been doing this for the last twelve years, and the results are very satisfying.

Wise-Pattern Breast Lift

Wise-pattern breast lift (Anchor-shaped scar breast lift) is performed when the breasts are too droopy, and the skin is too much in excess. A much broader area of skin is removed and finally, when the skin is closed, the scars mimic the shape of an anchor. The internal rearrangement of tissue could be done in many different ways. However, Dr. Yu is almost always able to use the medial and lower flap, a simple and elegant approach to create self-augmentation in the upper poles and the central mount regions, giving his patients very natural and beautiful results.

Breast Implant Removal- first step

Breast Lift First Step

What’s The First Step?

The first step to getting a Breast Lift in Los Angeles and Pasadena is to schedule your consultation with Dr. Yu at Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa in Arcadia. 

During your consultation, Dr. Yu will carry out a comprehensive breast evaluation, analyzing your anatomy and discussing your medical history, and your desired aesthetic goals. If you have lost a considerable amount of volume in your breasts, you may be advised to consider combining breast implants with your breast lift procedure. 

After your detailed examination, if you and Dr. Yu both feel that a breast lift is the best solution for your case, they will come up with a surgical plan. Our patient coordinator will then help you schedule your surgery and discuss pricing options as well as share pre-operative instructions.

What To Expect On The Day Of Breast Lift Surgery

On the day of your Breast Lift surgery at Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, our friendly team will welcome you and Dr. Yu will discuss your surgical plan once more with you in case of any new questions and/or concerns, and then anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

During this cosmetic procedure, excess skin and fat are removed from the breast. The nipple and areola are moved to a more youthful, natural position, or resized if needed, and excess skin that was located above the nipple is moved down and reshaped to improve the contour, shape, and firmness of underlying tissue in the breast.

Depending on your volume loss and desired outcome, there are various techniques for this surgery. You and Dr. Yu would have discussed this during your consultation and chosen the best fit for you.

Breast Lift Recovery

Post-surgery, our team will closely monitor you in a recovery area and provide you with detailed post-operative instructions for a smooth recovery. It is recommended to bring a family or friend to drive you home as you might have some lingering effects from the sedation.

You’ll be able to go home shortly after your surgery. You will be outfitted with a special support bra to help minimize swelling during your initial recovery. We recommend you take time off work for a few days up to a week. Also expect to avoid strenuous activities, including exercise, for up to six weeks post-surgery. 

Breast lift patients enjoy long-lasting results from their enhanced breast shape and contour. Keep in mind that your breasts will continue to change due to the natural aging process, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations.

Breast Lift Cost

How much does a Breast Lift cost in Arcadia, CA?

The cost of a Breast Lift in Los Angeles, Pasadena, and Arcadia, CA will vary on several factors including the type of incision technique, the complexity of your case, the surgeon’s fees, the anesthesia fees, and so on and so forth.
