Breast Lift


If you are dissatisfied with the position or shape of one or both of your breasts, a breast lift could be for you. When Dr. Brent performs a breast lift, he can alter various aspects of your breasts to create a more appealing and aesthetic shape. Though this procedure does not change the size of your breasts like an augmentation, it delivers stunning results that can still make your breasts look fuller. An added benefit is it can be combined with other breast procedures, such as breast augmentation to enhance both the size and shape of your breasts.

At his center for plastic surgery in Santa Barbara, Dr. Brent has delivered countless tailored procedures for his patients. He never does the same exact process twice, instead always adapting your procedure to perfectly suit your needs, goals, and natural beauty.






Breast Lift Types and Overview

Dr. Brent is skilled in several breast lift techniques and always uses the one that best suits you. Each comes with its own advantages and benefits. During your consultation, he works with you to determine which method will bring you the best results and optimal appearance.

The type of breast lift for you will depend on several factors:

  • How much skin needs removing
  • How much breast tissue may need to be removed or moved
  • If the nipply needs lifting or repositioning
  • If you plan to increase volume through implants (augmentation)


This is the classic breast lift. Instead of removing breast tissue, it focuses solely on lifting and enhancing the shape of your breasts. This works best for women with large, sagging breasts, lifting them to a youthful position. The incision pattern can leave a noticeable scar, but patients still say the overall results leave them proud of their breasts.


Using a different technique, Dr. Brent can create less scarring with this method. It can be broken down into two sub-types:

  • Crescent Lift: Least invasive, slight lift and firming, best for addressing minimal sagging.
  • Donut Mastopexy: Requires fewer incisions, less invasive, best for medium breasts with moderate sagging.

LeJour Breast Lift

Currently, this is the most popular method Dr. Brent has available. It works great for women with medium or large breasts with moderate to severe sagging. It is also less invasive than the Wise Pattern breast lift.

What Is the Breast Lift Procedure Like?

Dr. Brent fully tailors every procedure for his patients, so each breast lift will be unique. However, the general outline often remains the same.
We always use anesthesia to keep you comfortable. Some patients may need general anesthesia, while others might only need lighter sedation. Only once you are fully comfortable will Dr. Brent begin. He then uses your planned technique to reposition and reshape your breasts to their target shape.
One of the benefits of this method is it requires less time in surgery. Additionally, the healing period is shortened and scarring ends up being much less noticeable.

Recovery and Results of a Breast Lift

We apply sterile dressings to your breasts after surgery, which will prevent infection. Dr. Brent also provides you with complete information on how to spend your recovery so you can get the best results.
Most patients take at least a full week off, for starters. This allows your body to get the rest it needs to heal properly, which will make your final results all the better. At first, you can expect some discomfort and swelling, but you can manage these with medication as needed. The key aspect of your recovery is avoiding straining yourself.

Is a Breast Lift Right for Me?

Whether through genetics or life changes, you may be dissatisfied with the shape of your breasts. If this is the case, then a breast lift might be for you. Age, pregnancy, and weight loss all can also have significant impacts on your breasts, changing their shape and firmness. But a breast lift can restore and enhance them to a whole new level.

We do require our patients to meet a few prerequisites. These ensure that you will have the best chance for a safe and successful procedure. We ask that patients:

  • Be in general good health
  • Be at a stable weight
  • Avoid smoking before surgery and during recovery
