Our San Diego breast lift creates perkier, more beautiful breasts by removing excess skin, reshaping drooping tissue, and reducing the size of your areola.

What are the indications for a breast lift?

Pregnancy, weight loss, and the force of gravity can have a significant impact on your breasts. As you age, your youthful breast shape can be affected by volume loss and/or diminished skin elasticity. When this occurs, the breasts begin to sag and lose their firmness.

Fortunately, reshaping the breasts is possible with a lift. The procedure is designed to elevate the breast tissue to a more youthful position. The areola, the pigmented tissue surrounding the nipple, can be reduced in size as well. If you desire more volume, a breast augmentation can be performed in conjunction with a breast lift.

Who is a good candidate for a breast lift?

A breast lift can improve your appearance and self-confidence. The best breast lift candidates are La Jolla women with realistic expectations regarding their results. The potential outcome will be discussed during your complimentary consultation.

Although your breasts will appear lighter and perkier, they are susceptible to your life experiences moving forward. Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and the natural aging process may stretch the breast skin and cause it to sag again.

A custom procedure designed just for you

The best breast lift experiences are completely customized to the patient’s needs. At Esthetica, we deliver a personalized experience that begins during the initial consultation, when we start the process of planning your procedure.

There are many ways to create a breast lift in Del Mar that fits your needs and works for your body.

During your first appointment with our Coronado or Del Mar office, we will discuss:

  • Your ideal breasts, depending on your preferences, size and body shape
  • The technique our plastic surgeons will use
  • The anesthesia that we recommend
  • Where and when your surgery will take place
  • The steps you’ll need to take to prepare
  • What to expect throughout the healing process

Many of our San Diego clients choose to combine their lift with an augmentation to create a larger chest.

In this case, we will also explain the various options available and help you select the right implant size, shape and material for your figure and lifestyle.

Your breast lift surgical options

There are three types of breast lift: standard, doughnut and lollipop. Here’s what you need to know about each option:


Our standard La Jolla breast lift involves an anchor-shaped incision around the areola, down the front of the breast, and along the breast crease. Through this opening, our experienced surgeons can reduce sagginess, and restore a perkier firmer chest.


The doughnut is ideal for La Jolla women with smaller breasts who require less skin removal. It involves a single incision around the areola, and is associated with minimal scarring with a faster recovery period when compared to the other techniques.


The lollipop lift is the happy medium between the standard and the doughnut. It involves an incision around the areola and down the front of the breast. There’s less scarring than the standard approach. It allows for more tissue removal, and reshaping than the doughnut technique.

FAQ: Should I get implants with my breast lift?

Combining an augmentation with your breast lift can give you a brand new look by sculpting breasts that are larger and perkier.

The same incision can be used for both procedures, and placing implants typically allows us to remove less skin during your lift. As such, you will likely experience less scarring.

Risks and complications

When you work with an experienced La Jolla cosmetic surgeon, complications are very rare. However, even the best cosmetic surgery procedure is not without risk. Your surgeon will discuss these with you at your consultation.
