Breast Lift Riverside

Often, breasts are regarded as the hallmark of femininity. But their appearance, unfortunately, does not remain the same with the passage of time. This includes changes to their fullness, firmness, and even the angle at which they sit on the chest; yes, we are referring to sagging.

Aging, pregnancy and weight changes all contribute to the unwanted condition of sagging breasts (ptosis). Fortunately, there is a way to safely and surgically lift them back to the youthful position you remember: mastopexy, also known as breast lift surgery.

What Dr. Childers Offers Breast Lift Patients

Ben Childers, MD of Riverside Plastic Surgery Associates is an experienced cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon. Over the past 20 years, Dr. Childers has performed thousands of successful breast lift surgeries on satisfied patients.

His background, which includes prestigious training at Harvard Medical School and Loma Linda University, uniquely qualifies him to service patients throughout the Inland Empire; they seek him out to provide them with a variety of quality cosmetic surgery services, including breast lift. Riverside patients of Dr. Childers undergo their procedures at Riverside Community Hospital or Premier Outpatient Surgery Center, both of which are accredited surgical centers that are well equipped to accommodate cosmetic surgery patients.

Dr. Childers also offers a manageable breast lift surgery cost that makes the procedure accessible to many patients. A typical breast lift surgery in California can cost as much as $4,000 or more. A breast lift in Riverside by Dr. Ben Childers and Riverside Plastic Surgery Associates is priced reasonably lower than that. And even if you can't afford that significantly lower price, you can opt for flexible patient financing using CareCredit institution.

Types of Breast Lifts

There are actually several types of breast lifts. Here is how your breast lift options break down:

  • Crescent lift: This is best for minor ptosis. It involves the removal of tissue in a crescent shape, with an incision around the areola.
  • Benelli lift: This less invasive option, sometimes called the "donut" lift, involves the removal of tissue in a donut shape. With this method, the incisions are made in the areola, which does well to hide them.
  • Lollipop lift: This method, which requires the surgeon to make a lollipop-shaped incision, works best for a patient with a moderate (medium) degree of ptosis.
  • Full mastopexy: This is a full breast lift, which is best for patients with severe ptosis. It requires an anchor-shaped incision and a repositioning of the nipple.

All of these methods include the removal of stretched-out breast skin and any excess tissue, followed by a "lifting" of the remaining skin and tissue to elevate the breasts to a higher position. If implants are desired, that is something that patients of our breast lift surgeon in Riverside have access to; Dr. Childers can easily combine breast lift surgery and breast augmentation into one procedure.

The Recovery Period

After breast lift surgery, our staff will apply dressings to the incisions for their protection. A prescribed bandage will be your support bra for the first several days; this is designed to minimize swelling and support the healing process. Most patients can be back to work in 4 days.

Within the first week, you will be required to meet with Dr. Childers for a post-operative appointment for removal of any stiches, or to answer any questions about healing.
