Breast Lift

Overview for Thousand Oaks Breast Lift Patients

“With a breast lift, I tighten, raise, and improve the shape of the patient’s breasts. The procedure restores the youthfulness and beauty that their breasts may have lost with childbirth, breastfeeding, and age.”

Women choose Dr. Christopher Costanzo for breast lift surgery because of his years of experience in practice and the attractive outcomes he has created for thousands of patients. He helps women restore their appearance and counter the effects of aging and gravity by:

  • Tightening loose skin and shaping breast tissue for more projection.
  • Raising and reducing the size of the nipples and areolas.

Dr. Costanzo may recommend that Thousand Oaks breast lift patients combine the surgery with breast implants to achieve the greatest amount of improvement. He tailors each procedure to the patient’s individual goals and offers high-quality, and attentive care.

What Can A Breast Lift Do For Me?

If your breasts have begun to sag but have reasonably good support and haven’t lost volume, a breast lift alone may help you accomplish your goals. However, if you lack support and would like a larger size, breasts implants can augment and enhance your results.

In your initial consultation, Dr. Costanzo will talk with you about what you would like to accomplish. Among other questions, he may ask:

  • Do you want to be larger or stay near your current cup size?
  • Do you want more projection outward and more fullness on top?
  • Are you willing to accept the possibility of visible scars as a trade-off for a better shape?

This clear and collaborative approach is a hallmark of Dr. Costanzo’s treatment. By establishing the criteria for success, Thousand Oaks breast lift patients like you can achieve a happy outcome.

During the consultation, Dr. Costanzo will also conduct an examination of your breasts. This helps him to identify the position and proportions a breast lift should have, and it helps ensure that the breasts are symmetrical and in harmony with the rest of your body.

Details About The Breast Lift Procedure

Based on your examination, Dr. Costanzo will use one of several surgical approaches. These include:

  • Breast Augmentation only {Subglandular (over the muscle)} and no breast lift.
  • Crescent nipple lift with breast implants.
  • Mastopexy (breast lift) with breast implants.
  • Mastopexy (breast lift) only with no breast implants.

The approach he advises will depend on the width of your frame, the location of your nipples, the tightness of your skin, the projection of your breasts, and the shape and size of your breasts, among other factors.

If you decide to have breast lift with breast implants, Dr. Costanzo may recommend that you have the breast lift first followed by implants months later. This allows Dr. Costanzo to maximize the shaping during the lift procedure with the least visible scars. While this means two separate operations, Dr. Costanzo’s experience has shown that the approach can create more beautiful, youthful, and natural-looking results.
