San Diego Breast Lift

The fact is natural, youthful looking breasts aren't always a product of good genes. Sometimes they're the result of a simple procedure in San Diego known as a breast lift. Breast enhancement doesn't necessarily mean a lot of downtime or discomfort. Get the facts on breast lift by contacting San Diego plastic surgeon Richard Chaffoo, MD, FACS, FICS.

Another thing you might have noticed is you're younger than a lot of the women you see around town, and yet they're wearing the kinds of swimsuits or outfits you wouldn't dare wear, the type you haven't worn since your first pregnancy. By almost any woman's definition, these women look fantastic. Now you know their secret — plastic surgery. You had your suspicions — it is San Diego after all — but their breasts just looked so natural, and you don't see any scarring! Breast enhancement can do that.

Breast Lift in San Diego

As you age, your skin slowly begins to sag due to the effects of gravity. This is an unfortunate fact of life. Breasts especially lose their youthful volume and shape when the effects of gravity combine with the effects of giving birth. Fortunately, there's hope for those who want to experience how the other half lives here in La Jolla and San Diego. Breast enhancement, specifically a breast lift (mastopexy), can gently give your breasts a boost and in the process, your self-image can soar.

Dr. Chaffoo

Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Chaffoo provides exceptional results and patient care.

  • Triple board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Chaffoo has the experience and the expertise to not only give your sagging breasts a lift, but when combined along with breast augmentation, also restore lost volume. At your complimentary breast lift consultation, he will share with you the options for restoring fuller, more youthful looking breasts, including a surgical technique developed in Europe in which your own breast tissue is used as a natural breast implant to lift the breast, reposition a sagging nipple and restore a more youthful shape without increasing either volume or cup size. He will also discuss in detail what to expect with your breast lift including:

    • whether a mammogram or other work-up will be necessary prior to your breast lift
    • whether an implant is needed and if so, the type/style of implants
    • surgical technique specific to your anatomy
    • both the size and location of incisions
    • recovery, and
    • risks associated with breast enhancement

    Here in San Diego, a breast lift is usually conducted under general anesthesia. The procedure takes just 2 to 3 hours, during which Dr. Chaffoo removes lax skin. Additionally, your nipple and areola are repositioned higher. Although the procedure can help the breasts be firmer, shapelier and more youthful looking, it does not make them larger, so many women elect breast implants to restore lost volume. Either way, side effects should start to diminish after just 1 to 2 weeks, although this timeframe may vary.

    If you're considering a breast lift or any other type of breast enhancement, San Diego plastic surgeon Richard Chaffoo, MD, FACS, FICS can help. He has an office conveniently located close to you on Genesee Avenue in La Jolla on the Scripps Memorial Hospital Campus at the Ximed Medical Center.
