Laser Breast Lift

With age, the elasticity of the skin decreases. For many women, this often results in the breasts sagging noticeably. After having children and breastfeeding the condition may become especially prominent. Traditionally a breast lift has been used to combat sagging breasts in women as they get older.  The laser breast lift is a more modern procedure that addresses some of the deficiencies of the traditional breast lift.   Dr. David Stoker, one of the few plastic surgeons who specializes in laser breast surgery explains, “The laser breast lift is a newer, more advanced procedure that uses the patient’s own tissues to her advantage to create a perkier breast .”

A consultation with Dr. Stoker is your best option to see if the laser breast lift may be beneficial to you. Call him at (310) 300-1779 or click here to make an online appointment.

When performing a standard breast lift, surgeons discard the excess skin and tissues that are removed from the breast. In a laser breast lift, the superficial layers of the excess skin are removed with a carbon dioxide laser.  The laser-treated skin is then fashioned into a bra-like natural support for the breasts. This “internal bra” provides support because it is sutured to the deep tissues behind the breast.

The laser breast lift uses the patient’s own tissue instead of an implant.  There is no risk of the body rejecting the patient’s own tissue. Laser breast lifts may also be performed with a breast reduction  and lift because it enhances the results of the procedure by providing durable support.

Laser Breast Lift: Recovery
The recovery time for a laser breast lift is similar to that for a traditional breast lift. The laser portion of the procedure is bloodless and decreases the operating time.  It is still surgery, however, so it still takes time to heal.  Typically you need a few days to a week off to recover before returning to work.  Dr. Stoker suggests refraining from strenuous activities for three to four weeks after the operation for optimal healing.
