Rejuvenate Your Figure, Restore Your Curves
The breast lift procedure at our San Jose plastic surgery practice is designed to rejuvenate a woman’s curves when the skin of her breasts has lost its natural elasticity due to fluctuations in weight, pregnancy, breastfeeding, the passage of time, and other factors. This safe, time-tested surgical procedure lifts the breasts to a more youthful, aesthetically pleasing position on the chest. It can be performed on its own or in combination with breast augmentation, for women who wish to improve the profile of their breasts while simultaneously restoring lost volume.
Dr. A.M. Yenikomshian conducts a thorough evaluation of all women considering breast lift surgery to determine whether they are suitable candidates for the procedure and to fully understand their cosmetic goals. During initial consultations with patients, Dr. Yenikomshian also discusses the cost of breast lift surgery, the benefits and risks associated with the procedure, and what patients should expect in terms of results. He believes strongly that patients should be fully educated about the procedures in which they are interested so that they can make confident, informed decisions about whether to proceed with treatment.

Candidates for Breast Lift Surgery
Women who are in generally good health and whose breasts appear deflated or have begun to sag may benefit from breast lift surgery. Sagging may occur due to pregnancy, breast feeding, significant weight loss, or the loss of skin elasticity associated with the natural aging process. Since pregnancy and breast feeding may cause the breasts to stretch, it is advisable that women wait until after they have finished having children and nursing to undergo breast lift surgery. Indeed, many women choose to combine breast lift with body contouring procedures such as liposuction and abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, as part of a comprehensive “mommy makeover” plan.
Breast lift is also popular among women who have lost a considerable amount of weight and are left with excess skin that does not respond to exercise. The procedure is often combined with other skin removal and body lift procedures designed to improve their entire physique as part of a post-bariatric surgery plan.
The Breast Lift Procedure
Because Dr. Yenikomshian tailors the breast lift procedure to each individual, the details of the surgery vary from patient to patient. Usually, Dr. Yenikomshian makes an incision around the areola and beneath the breast in order to remove excess skin and then lifts the breast to a more youthful position. If the patient desires to increase the volume of her breasts, saline or silicone breast implants may be inserted during the breast lift procedure. Dr. Yenikomshian works through the most discreet incisions possible to minimize visible scarring.
