Breast Lift San Diego / Del Mar / La Jolla – Dr. Chasan
Serving San Diego, La Jolla and Del Mar Breast Lift Patients
A breast lift or mastopexy is a surgical procedure that raises and reshapes sagging breasts. To achieve the best possible results, Dr. Chasan often performs breast lift in conjunction with breast augmentation in Del Mar / La Jolla. The procedure takes approximately two to three hours to perform depending on the amount of sagging. The incision usually turns white and can become quite inconspicuous within three to six months. Most of Dr. Chasan's La Jolla, Del Mar and San Diego breast lift patients experience very little bruising and can return to work within four to five days.
Breast Lift San Diego in Del Mar / La Jolla
Mastopexy (breast lift) is one of the most artistic surgeries performed by plastic surgeons. This is definitely not a "one fits all" surgery. Dr. Chasan takes into account each patient's degree of droop (ptosis), skin quality, breast shape, chest wall shape, asymmetries, and the patient's desired result when creating the ultimate shape of the breast. He explains to patients that the skin itself stretches, and using only the skin to perform the breast lift will result in a less permanent result. Any tension on the incision line will result in a widened scar. As a leading Del Mar breast lift surgeon, Dr. Chasan performs breast lift with this issue in mind, taking care to minimize the tension on the scar and manipulate the tissue to create a fuller breast on top.
Depending on the amount of sagging, the incision may be around the areola (circumareolar) or Dr. Chasan may create a "lollipop-shaped" incision. He rarely uses the old-style "anchor shaped" incision. The type of incision and the precise surgical technique can be determined only during a one-on-one breast lift consultation.
