Rancho Cucamonga Breast Lift Surgery
Reclaim your youthful breast shape with a little help from an experienced cosmetic surgeon
Pregnancy, weight loss, and the natural passing of time can all impact the way your breasts look—and these changes can make you feel self-conscious in certain clothes, uncomfortable being intimate with your partner, or even cause physical discomfort.
If you are bothered by breast sagging, an experienced cosmetic surgeon can help restore a more youthful breast appearance through breast lift surgery. Dr. Jacob Haiavy, Dr. Irene Tower, and Dr. Emma Ryan recommend breast lift surgery to patients who are unhappy with drooping breasts or have noticed a “deflated” appearance after pregnancy and breast feeding—and our patients are thrilled with their results.
From the first time I met Dr. Tower, I was very comfortable. I found the fact that she is also a mom very comforting, she knew exactly what I was looking for from a breast lift surgery. She listened to exactly everything I had to say and she gave me some input on what she thought I would be happy with.Real Inland Cosmetic Surgery breast lift patient
Depending on your unique needs, our surgeons may use one or a combination of surgical procedures to help you receive your desired aesthetic result.
Four main types of breast lift surgery
Depending on your personal goals, natural anatomy, and degree of sagging that needs to be corrected, our surgeons will recommend one of the following breast lift techniques:
- A donut lift is a lift which involves removal of skin around the areola (brown part of the nipple) and therefore results in elevation of the nipple areola. The scarring is usually minimal and it allows downsizing of the areola which is usually stretched with the rest of the breast skin. If a large amount of skin is removed around the areola a special purse string suture is placed around the incision to allow proper healing with minimal scarring. This special suture may result in some bunching of skin that usually resolves spontaneously with time.
- A lollipop lift, also called the vertical mastopexy, involves removal of skin around the areola and the lower portion of the breast. This results in a scar around the areola combined with a vertical scar at the lower portion of the breast. In women with large breasts a small portion of the breast tissue may be removed and internal sutures placed to achieve more fullness.
- A J type lift involves removal of skin around the areola and at the lower portion of the breast. It is essentially like the lollipop lift with an additional ellipse of skin removed to one side of the fold under the breast. We use this lift very commonly since it gives the patients more fullness at the cleavage area with less scarring than the inverted T lift.
- Inverted T lift also involves removal of skin around the areola and the lower portion of the breast. But unlike a J type lift, skin is removed from both sides of the fold underneath the breast. Another name for the inverted T lift is “anchor lift,” since incisions are placed along the base of the breast in the shape of an anchor.

Do I need a breast lift with augmentation?
We often combine breast lift with a breast augmentation to achieve more fullness in the upper portion of the breast. Since the lift and the augmentation are two negating forces (the lift is pulling the breast up and the implant is pushing the breast back down) we encourage our patients to be very conservative with the implant size.
Since the cause of saggy breasts is poor skin elasticity adding more weight to the breast may cause them to sag again at a faster rate. Therefore, postoperative support with a bra is essential to maintaining a breast lift result. In addition, women that are large-breasted will benefit more from a breast reduction rather than a lift. A breast lift may also be implemented during breast implant removal to address any remaining sagging skin.
