Breast Lift In Beverly Hills

(310) 970-2940 | Beverly Hills | Miami

Many factors can contribute to breasts losing firmness and skin elasticity due to age. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight fluctuations can all affect the shape and position of your breasts. Combined with the natural aging process, genetics, and gravity, you may notice that your breasts are sitting much lower on your chest than you would like. A breast lift is designed to reshape the contours of your chest, restoring your breasts to a perkier, more youthful position.

Don’t let your self-confidence suffer because you’re uncomfortable with the appearance of your breasts. A breast lift can change how you look and feel, allowing you to fully enjoy your body again.

What Are the Benefits of a Breast Lift?

Firmer, Lifted Breasts

The breast tissues begin to sag and lose firmness as they lose elasticity. Breast lift surgery addresses loose skin and tissues to lift and reshape the breasts and restore firmness.

Elevated Nipples

As the breast tissues stretch and droop, the nipple-areolar complexes may become enlarged and point downward. Breast lift surgery can reposition the nipples and areolas for a more youthful and balanced appearance.

Boost In Confidence

Saggy breasts can make a woman feel embarrassed or self-conscious about her overall appearance. Breast lift surgery will not only lift the breasts to a more youthful position, but it can also improve a woman’s self-esteem and confidence.

What Is a Breast Lift?

Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, can lift and reshape the breasts for a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance. A breast lift can also address oversized areolas, which often become enlarged following pregnancy and breastfeeding.

What Are My Breast Lift Incision Options?

There are a few incision options for breast lift surgery. The choice of incision depends on the desired amount of lift and the anticipated amount of skin tightening. Dr. Hadeed will discuss your incision options at your consultation so that you know what to expect going into your surgery.

Periareolar Incision

This technique is best suited for women who desire a minimal lift. The incision is made around the outer edge of each areola and is typically hidden by the darker color of the areola.

Lollipop Incision

This incision is best for women with moderate sagging breasts. An incision is placed around each areola and continues vertically down the underside of the breast to the crease where your breast attaches to your chest.

Anchor/Inverted-T Incision

This technique is ideal for women with severe breast sagging who require the removal of a significant amount of extra skin. An incision is made around the edge of the areola, vertically down the breast, and under the breast along the breast crease.

How Is a Breast Lift Performed?


During your consultation, Dr. Hadeed will answer your questions about breast lift surgery, address any concerns you may have, and go over the details of your procedure. You will talk about your goals and the results you hope to achieve, and you can look at breast lift before and after photos to see examples of Dr. Hadeed’s skill and expertise.

Your consultation is the time to learn about the procedure and how to prepare for breast lift surgery and recovery. Dr. Hadeed will examine you, recommend the incision option that will give you the best outcome, and work with you to determine a surgical plan that meets your needs while creating the desired aesthetic results.

Preparing for Surgery and Recovery

Breast lift surgery is an outpatient procedure, so a responsible adult must be available to drive you home and help you get settled. You should also have someone to stay with you for the first 24–48 hours of your recovery to ensure that you are settled in and that your recovery is off to a good start. Before your surgery, prepare a comfortable spot in your home to recover. Make sure your essentials are within easy reach: extra pillows and blankets, pain medication, water, and other items to make your recovery more comfortable.

You will need to stop using nicotine for at least two weeks before and after your surgery, as nicotine can cause complications with anesthesia and negatively affect the healing process. You should also stop taking blood thinning medications or herbal supplements before surgery.

The Breast Lift Procedure

A breast lift is performed using general anesthesia. Once you are comfortably asleep, Dr. Hadeed will make an incision or incisions in each breast. The type of incision depends on the amount of correction needed; you will know which incision he will use before your surgery.

Once the incision is made, Dr. Hadeed reshapes your breast tissue and repositions your nipple and areola to sit centered on your breast. He also reduces the size of your areolas if necessary. Once the breast is reshaped, he trims away the excess skin and completes the surgery by carefully suturing the incisions closed.

During your consultation, Dr. Hadeed will explain the details regarding your breast lift surgery and will work with you to determine a surgical plan that meets your individual needs while creating the aesthetic results you desire.

Can I Combine My Breast Lift With Other Procedures?

Breast lift surgery can be performed alongside breast augmentation for women who wish to enhance the size and shape of their breasts using saline or silicone breast implants. In some instances, fat transfer can also be used for natural breast enhancement. Breast reduction surgery is another procedure that can be combined with breast lift surgery for women who wish to reduce and reshape the size of their overly large breasts.

Many women like to combine other body sculpting procedures with their breast lift, such as a tummy tuck surgery or liposuction, or create a treatment plan for complete body rejuvenation with a Mommy Makeover. Combining a breast lift with Dr. Hadeed’s signature TriDef™ Liposculpting procedure can help you achieve a beautiful hourglass figure.

What Can I Expect During My Breast Lift Recovery?

After your breast lift surgery, you will be asked to wear a surgical bra to support your new breasts and help minimize swelling. You will experience swelling and bruising, which will resolve after a few days.

You must sleep on your back during your breast lift recovery, and sleeping in a recliner or propped up with pillows will also help minimize swelling. Resting is essential for recovery, but you should incorporate daily short walks. Gentle movement helps reduce the risk of developing blood clots and encourages circulation and healing.

You can return to work and other daily activities three weeks after your procedure. However, avoid heavy lifting or strenuous physical activities that can put stress on the treated area for at least six weeks or until cleared by Dr. Hadeed.

When Will I See My Breast Lift Results?

You will see some immediate results following your breast lift surgery. However, it may take several months before all swelling completely subsides. As the post-surgical swelling decreases, your breasts will gradually settle into their natural shape and newly lifted position.

Most women are very satisfied and feel more confident with their new, youthful breasts after their surgery. Your breasts will sit at a higher position on your chest, improving your overall body contour and giving your curves a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Are My Breast Lift Results Permanent?

Breast lift results are considered permanent; however, the same things that caused breast sagging initially will still be a factor, including weight fluctuations and pregnancy. The natural aging process will continue, so you may eventually experience some sagging breasts over time.

What Complications Can Occur With a Breast Lift?

As with any surgery, there is a chance of complications with breast lift surgery. While complications are rare, risks associated with breast lift surgery include

  • Anesthesia risks
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Breast asymmetry
  • Fluid accumulation (seroma)
  • Poor wound healing
  • Loss of nipple sensation

Dr. Hadeed provides each patient with detailed postoperative instructions to help mitigate these risks and facilitate a smooth recovery after a breast lift. Closely following his instructions will help you avoid complications as you heal. If you experience any unusual side effects during the recovery process or are concerned about how you are healing, contact our office immediately.

Breast Lift FAQs

  • Am I a good candidate for a breast lift?

  • What type of anesthesia is used during breast lift surgery?

    Breast lift surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia.

  • Is breast lift surgery painful?

    Breast lift surgery is not painful during the procedure, as you will be under anesthesia, but you will experience some moderate discomfort following your procedure. Dr. Hadeed will prescribe you pain medication to help with this, and you may also use over-the-counter pain relievers.

  • How long does breast lift surgery take?

    Your breast lift treatment can typically last two to four hours, depending on the level of correction needed. The length of the procedure also depends on whether you decide to combine it with other procedures.

  • Will I lose nipple sensation after breast lift surgery?

    You may notice some degree of sensation loss around your nipple after breast lift surgery. This is normal, and sensation will gradually return over the next few weeks. Every patient is different;  in a few cases, numbness may take up to a year to completely resolve.

  • Can I breastfeed after a breast lift?

    Because breast lift surgery typically only involves superficial skin and tissue, it likely won’t affect your milk glands or ducts. However, breastfeeding may affect your breast lift results, so it is recommended that you finish having children before undergoing breast lift surgery.

  • Does a breast lift leave scars?

    The degree of scarring on your breasts will depend on the technique used during your surgery. While some scars can be hidden by the areola or under the breast crease, others may be visible. Even if you prefer the smallest scar possible, following your surgeon’s recommendations for the right incision is essential to ensure optimal results.

    No matter what type of incisions are used for your breast reduction, most scars are thin and can be hidden with clothing. Even though the scars are permanent, they will fade over time. You can lessen their visibility by protecting them from the sun and using scar gels, lotions, or silicone scar strips.

  • Am I too old for a breast lift?

    You can undergo breast lift surgery at nearly any adult age if you are healthy and have no concerning medical conditions.

  • How much does a breast lift cost in Beverly Hills, CA?

    The cost of your breast lift procedure near Beverly Hills, CA, will vary based on factors such as anesthesia fees, surgical fees, and the amount of correction needed. Dr. Hadeed will provide an accurate cost estimate for your breast lift procedure during your consultation.

  • Does insurance cover breast lift surgery?

    Breast lift surgery is considered cosmetic, so it is not covered by medical insurance. However, Dr. Hadeed offers financing options for cosmetic breast surgery, which you can discuss during your consultation.
