Many women find that weight loss, breastfeeding and the natural aging process have caused their once perky breasts to droop, resulting in an undesirable cosmetic effect.
When this occurs, one of Dr. Younai’s exquisite breast lifts offers the ideal solution, lifting heavy, sagging breasts and restoring a more youthful overall appearance.
What do breast lifts address?
With a Beverly Hills breast lift, or mastopexy, Dr. Younai is able to address a wide variety of cosmetic issues, including:
- Sagging breasts
- Uneven breasts
- Decreased breast volume
- Drooping nipples
- Stretched areolas
- Breasts that appear hollow on top
A breast lift is a great solution for women who are satisfied with the overall size of their breasts but are unhappy with their breast profile. Breast lift surgery has increased over 75% since 2000, with over 94,000 mastopexy procedures performed in 2014. This growing trend is continuing with more women opting for less invasive surgeries overall. Providing the most natural breast lift Los Angeles has available is why Dr. Younai is much sought after by women who want a boost to their breast silhouette without also having an implant.
How is a breast lift performed?
To begin your Los Angeles breast lift procedure, Dr. Younai will first administer general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety. He will then make a small incision, usually on the lower edge of the areola. Through that opening, he will artfully lift and reshape your breast tissue to achieve a firm and natural-looking contour.
He will then adjust the nipple height and areola so they are at a more youthful position, before removing any excess skin.
If your areolas are stretched, Dr. Younai can reduce their size as well. Once your breasts have been lifted and reshaped to achieve your ideal look, Dr. Younai will tighten the remaining skin and carefully close the incisions to minimize any scarring.
After surgery, your results will be apparent immediately and should continue to improve as you progress through the healing process, revealing perky and more beautiful breasts.
Dr. Younai provides breast lift in Bakersfield, in addition to his Beverly Hills and Encino offices.
How long will the results last?
The final results of your breast lift are largely dependent on the skill of your surgeon. With that said, as long as your breast lift was performed correctly by a board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Younai, your breast lift results should be extremely long-lasting, with your breasts remaining at their new youthful position for decades.
One way of ensuring the results will be long lasting is to maintain a healthy weight, avoiding excess strain on the supporting structure of the breasts. Pregnancy will also undo the benefits of a breast lift. A breast lift reshapes tissue, repositions the nipple and areola to a higher position and if necessary reduces the size of the areola. This rejuvenation remains stable so long as there are no significant changes to the area.
For the first few days of your initial recovery period, it’s a good idea to have a friend or family member stay with you, to ensure your comfort. You can expect to experience some pain, discoloration, redness and swelling in the area, though it should all be manageable with your prescribed pain medication from Dr. Younai. It’s important to note that all of these side effects will be most severe during the first two days, and will gradually subside over time. Typically, most patients feel well enough to return to work within one week, as long as their jobs aren’t physically demanding.
In terms of activity, it’s important to begin walking around immediately after surgery to stimulate the healing process and prevent any complications. For the first two weeks after surgery, you should minimize physical activity other than walking and refrain from lifting, bending, straining and doing anything else that causes discomfort to your breasts and upper body. During your post-operative appointments, Dr. Younai will offer specific guidance on when you can resume more strenuous physical activities.
Preparation is key
Smooth recovery depends on good organization before the surgery takes place. Rest is the key to a fast recovery free of complications. This period of rest is best accomplished by ensuring all routine tasks are done or delegated before surgery. Additionally it is very beneficial to have help for several days, especially if there are young children in the family. Lifting, preparing meals and dealing with day-to-day life can be exhausting for the first week, putting stress on healing tissue.
Recovery determines results
Recovery has much to do with outcome. Dr. Younai’s patients enjoy having among the best breast lift Beverly Hills residents could hope for because they are fully supported by his entire team through all phases of their recovery. Patients who also prepare for their recovery so that rest can occur report an uneventful and fast recovery, resulting in beautiful natural results. Achieving the finest breast lift Beverly Hills and Los Angeles has available is a team effort.
