What Is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift, also known as mammoplasty, is a procedure designed to eliminate sagging breasts by trimming and tightening the tissue that surrounds them. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis and may be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as a breast augmentation.
Benefits of a Breast Lift
A breast lift procedure helps tighten sagging skin, thereby making the breasts appear firmer and higher. While it does not necessarily change the size of the breasts, this lifting procedure can nonetheless make them appear fuller.

How Is a Breast Lift Performed in Santa Clarita?
Your breast lift procedure will be performed under general anesthesia. Once this anesthesia takes effect, Dr. Hu will perform one of the following incisions based on your individual anatomy:
- Crescent lift (the most minimal lift, leaving a slight scar on the upper areola)
- Circumareolar lift (also called a donut or Benelli lift, creating an incision around the areola)
- Lollipop incision (incision running vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast crease)
- Anchor lift (also called a Wise pattern, incision around the nipple, vertically from the bottom edge of the areola and then horizontally beneath the breast)
After making the incision, Dr. Hu will trim and tighten excess skin to help lift your breasts and make them appear fuller. In some cases, it might also be necessary to reduce the size of the areola to more closely match the contours of your new breast. If this is needed, Dr. Hu will trim excess skin and then reposition the nipple and areola to their proper location. Once this is accomplished, your wounds will be sewn shut, and you will be taken to a recovery area where you’ll be monitored for signs of complications.
