Dr. Pietraszek is committed to the highest quality surgical care for cosmetic breast rejuvenation, which includes breast lift procedures at our La Jolla plastic surgery clinic.

Our leading plastic surgery procedures allow patients to feel more comfortable in their own skin.
The Benefits of a Cosmetic Breast Lift
A breast lift is intended to improve body aesthetics and restore both an uplifted breast position and skin firmness. Dr. Pietraszek couples attention to detail with an artistic approach to aesthetics to create new silhouettes for patents with sagging skin and elongated breasts. Our cosmetic breast surgery patients typically consider breast lifts for any of the following reasons:
• Pregnancy and Nursing
• Natural Aging
• Weight Gain and Loss
• Genetic Abnormalities with Nipples or Areolas
Through breast lift surgery, excess tissue is removed and breasts feel firmer. Breasts that were formerly elongated or drooping are restored to a position that mimics the appearance of breasts before any of the above took a toll on the shape of your body. Your procedure can also include realignment of side or downward-pointing nipples or areolas. With Dr. Pietraszek’s individualized approach to breast lifts, you don’t have to worry about wearing restrictive bras that are made to lift breasts or what shirt to wear to ensure you feel good about the way you look.
How are Breast Lifts Performed?
Your cosmetic procedure is customized to current breast size and the degree of skin laxity you are experiencing. Dr. Piertraszek’s methods for completing a breast lift can include least invasive options for minimal issues with skin laxity and sagging, to more comprehensive approaches, which may consist of a range of incisions, from minor crescent to donut shapes, to more complete anchor patterns. A full breast lift may be ideal for large breasts with significant sagging, while patients with smaller breasts may only need a small amount of tissue removed to meet aesthetic goals. This outpatient procedure requires no hospital stay; patients are typically cleared to go back to work in a week.
Breast Lift with Implants
While many patients may not need implants to go along with their breast lift surgery, others may be interested in this option to meet their goals. Breast lifts are intended to reposition drooping tissue, but won’t add volume. Patients who have experienced significant weight loss or mothers who have breastfed may be candidates for both a breast lift and augmentation with implants to create new breast position and restore lost volume.
