What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is a cosmetic procedure that brings the chest up to a higher, natural placement. This surgery is often performed on mothers who are happy with the size of their family and want to focus on gaining their pre-baby body. It is also a great treatment for women who have seen a loss of skin elasticity in the breasts due to age. A breast lift does a lot for a woman’s self-esteem and we love how pleased our patients are with their results.


breast lift benefitsBreast lifts provide a noticeable difference in the position and attractiveness of the breasts. This treatment is long-lasting and allows patients to restore a youthful appearance to their breasts. Asymmetry, sagging, breast ptosis and other issues that cause distortions in breast proportion may also be addressed by the breast lift.

Dr. Erfani is an experienced, specialized surgeon who has performed many breast enhancement procedures. His keen eye for detail and a steady hand allow our patients to receive beautiful, natural results.

Women are able to get out and go shopping in just a few weeks. Low-cut tops and swimsuits don’t have to be something you are self-conscious about wearing. A breast lift will revitalize the appearance of your chest.


This treatment is ideal for women who have droopy breasts. The direction your nipples point is a good way to determine if you need a breast lift. If your nipples point down, then you are a candidate for a breast lift.

Ideally, a patient pursuing a breast lift will be healthy, within their ideal weight range, and understand the realistic outcomes of the breast lift surgery.

If you feel self-conscious about your chest, consider a breast lift. We believe every woman should be comfortable in her body and proud of the way it looks.

Personal Consultation

breast lift consultationA great way to learn more about breast lift surgery is by meeting with Dr. Erfani. A personal consultation is your chance to ask him about the surgery, recovery and expected results. Ask lots of questions and voice your concerns, this is your chance to learn from an expert. Dr. Erfani will also use this time as a chance to learn about you and determine if a breast lift is your best solution. He will not recommend a breast lift if he does not believe it would be safe.

One of the details Dr. Erfani will go over in your consultation will be breast lift techniques. There are different incisions that are used to provide the best results. Incision methods include:

  • Areolar or periareolar. This incision is made along the border of the areola.
  • Inframammary. Extending along the breast crease, this incision is discreet and will be hidden within the natural fold of the breasts.
  • Lollipop Incision. This incision is made around the areola and down the front of the breast to the crease.

Dr. Erfani may implement one or a combination of these incisions to produce your best outcome.

If a breast lift is determined as safe and you are interested, an appointment will be scheduled and Dr. Erfani will provide you with instructions on how to prepare for the surgery and recovery.


Preparation is key to a healthy procedure and healing process.

You will need to fill prescriptions and pick them up a few days before your breast lift appointment. These medications will be crucial immediately following your surgery.

You will need to have transportation provided for you the day of the appointment and in the next day or two after. We recommend a friend also stay with you during your recovery to help you adjust to movement.

The night before the surgery, you will need to fast and get a good night’s rest. When you wake up you will want to take a shower and dress in comfy clothes that are not tight or difficult to take off.


The breast lift procedure will begin when the general anesthesia has taken effect and you are resting. The predetermined incisions will be delicately applied along the chest in discreet areas. Excess skin and tissue will be removed and fat will be redistributed to help your breasts appear full. The remaining skin will be lifted and re-attached. Incisions will be closed and bandaged. The whole procedure will take about two hours after which you will be monitored in a recovery room until you wake up.


Drains are often placed within incisions to remove any excess fluids. These drains will be removed a few days after surgery during a follow-up appointment. Follow-up appointments are important aspects to a breast lift because they give Dr. Erfani the chance to clean incisions, change bandages, remove drains, and ensure you are healing well.

This is also your opportunity to ask new questions and learn what to expect for the rest of your recovery.

Any discomfort can be controlled with the prescribed pain medications. You will need to sleep on your back for four to six weeks so as not to irritate or put pressure on incisions. Please give our office a call so we can answer any of your questions.


You will notice an improvement in the placement of your breasts right away. Swelling and bruising will diminish over the weeks following surgery, allowing you to get a better idea of your final results. The final outcome will be noticeable after two months. A special bra will need to be worn to keep your breasts in their new place and help them adjust. Dr. Erfani will inform you when you can switch to regular bras again.

The results achieved by Dr. Erfani will last you for years! These results can be best kept with a healthy lifestyle.

Complementary Procedures

Breast lifts are often performed alongside breast augmentation. These two treatments will truly transform your chest. Breast augmentation can be performed with silicone or saline implants or through a fat transfer procedure. Each of these procedures present a unique set of advantages and Dr. Erfani will help you decide which method is best for you.

A breast lift will improve the profile of your chest and help your boobs look less droopy while breast augmentation will restore fullness and volume.

Increasing breast volume through a breast augmentation will help your breasts look younger and improves cleavage. If you are interested in combining these procedures for comprehensive improvement to your feminine physique, schedule a consultation with Dr. Erfani.
