Achieve Beautiful, Natural Results

Dr. Catherine Chang

Mastopexy Specialist

As we age, our body’s can change due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and the natural aging process.

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that aims to lift and reshape sagging breasts. For many patients, it can have significant benefits, including increased volume, projection, and a boost in self-confidence that comes when you look and feel your best.

Dr. Catherine Chang is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in a wide variety of advanced breast surgeries including breast lifts.

A Bespoke Approach

“Results So Natural, It Will Be Your Best Kept Secret™”

Dr. Chang understands that every patient is unique and will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your individual concerns and goals for your breasts after a breast lift.

During a breast lift procedure, Dr. Chang will make incisions on the breasts, remove excess skin, and reshape the breast tissue to improve the overall contour and appearance of the breasts. The nipple and areola may also be repositioned to a higher location on the breast to create a more youthful appearance.

The specific technique used for a breast lift will depend on the patient’s individual needs and desired results. Dr. Chang will work closely with the patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses their unique concerns and goals.

“Surgery sans looking surgical”

Is a Breast Lift Right for You?

It’s important to note that while a breast lift can improve the shape and position of the breasts, it will not significantly increase breast size. Patients who desire fuller breasts may consider combining a breast lift with breast augmentation using implants.

Patients who are good candidates for a breast lift should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure. A breast lift can help address many concerns including:

  • Sagging or dropping breasts: If you have sagging breasts due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy, a breast lift can help to lift and reshape your breasts to a more youthful position.
  • Breast shape: If you are unhappy with the shape of your breasts, a breast lift can help to improve their contour and symmetry.
  • Nipple position: If your nipples point downward or are positioned below the breast crease, a breast lift can reposition them to a higher location on the breast.
  • Breast size: A breast lift does not significantly change the size of your breasts. If you want larger breasts, you may consider combining a breast lift with breast augmentation using implants.
After many hours spent looking at pictures, studying surgeons' credentials, reading reviews and staring at my aging face, I chose Catherine Chang, MD for my facelift, neck lift, blepharoplasty and CO2 laser procedure. It was a leap of faith that came with great anxiety in the midst of a pandemic year. My first visit with Dr. Chang was unhurried and she took the time to explain the procedures she was recommending as well as the results that could be expected. Her confidence and understanding were reassuring. Dr. Chang is a skilled surgeon, talented and perceptive. She understood what I was looking for. State of the art results: Dr. Chang is an amazing young woman, a perfectionist.

Dr. Chang is AMAZING. I’d had incredibly severe breathing issues my whole life—I’m talking sinus headaches, blurry vision, absolutely *no* airflow through one side of my nose—all from an extremely deviated septum. On top of everything else, the septum issue created a huge bump in my nose that proved to be very problematic for my career as a performer. As a woman of color, finding a doctor who could improve my quality of life, adjust my profile, but simultaneously honor my heritage and my ethnicity was a terrifying thought. I wanted to solve my problem, but I wanted to come out looking like me. I was overwhelmed by the fear of not being heard—as I’d had many other experiences where my dignity as a patient was clearly not the priority.

Dr. Catherine Chang changed my life. At 43, I unfortunately had aged prematurely in my lower face and neck and was so unhappy with my changing appearance. I had met with a couple of other surgeons but was too scared to trust them with such a big surgery. Not only is Dr. Chang professionally incredible but she is also cool and sweet as can be and every office visit is a joy. I am so grateful I found Dr. Catherine Chang!

"Dr. Chang is absolutely amazing. I am beyond happy and thankful that I chose to have my procedure with her! Words can't describe how happy I am! My recovering was less than 3 days! Same day I was already on my feet! I only took pain medication for about a day. I recovered so fast, not a single issue. Now the best part is the results, the result is INCREDIBLE. Exactly what I wanted! Thank you Dr. Chang!!!"

"Dr. Catherine Chang is a masterful plastic surgeon! I cannot say enough about how happy I am with the results of my recent surgery! I have "cred" as they say because I'm in the business of medical aesthetics--a Registered Nurse in this field since the early 2000's. I have been extremely fortunate to work with legendary plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. Thank you Dr. Chang for restoring this face and neck!"

"Dr. Cat Chang is amazing! I wish there were more than 5 stars I could give her. After years of contemplation, I went ahead and had the rhinoplasty (nose job) I have always wanted with Dr. Chang. I could not be more pleased with the results! I love my new profile, it is exactly what I hoped for!"

"Simply put, Dr. Chang is phenomenal on so many levels! It was such an easy decision to choose her to perform my breast implant replace and lift surgery. Apart from having a "rock star" academic resume, upon meeting her I was immediately impressed as she has a very caring demeanor, is personable, professional, compassionate, but most importantly, incredibly experienced and knowledgeable."

Breast Lift Incisions

Dr. Chang will work with each patient to determine which incision type is most appropriate for their specific needs and desired results.
  • Anchor incision: This is the most common type of breast lift incision, also known as an inverted T or Wise pattern incision. It involves three incisions: one around the areola, one vertically from the bottom of the areola to the breast crease, and one horizontally along the breast crease.
  • Lollipop incision: This incision involves two incisions: one around the areola and one vertically from the bottom of the areola to the breast crease.
  • Crescent incision: This is a small incision that is made just above the areola. It is typically used for patients who need only a minor lift.
  • Periareolar incision: This involves an incision around the edge of the areola. It is typically used for patients who need only a small lift and do not have a significant amount of excess skin.
