Breast Augmentation with Lift - Newport Beach, CA*

47 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Your self-perception and confidence are critical throughout your life. Your breasts are a key part of that confidence, and you need to feel that they are proportional and attractive. Breast size, shape/fullness, and more, are particular to each woman. You have envisioned how you would look in your ideal breast size, and you may wish it to match or exceed your hip size. The old standard of 36-26-36 may be your goal. No matter what the ideal picture and numbers are for you, you deserve to do something special for yourself. You deserve to have your needs met in the right procedure, done right the first time by a highly trained, highly experienced, and board-certified Orange County Plastic Surgeon.

The Problems

  • Five main issues can cause (or contribute to) droop (ptosis) in breasts of nearly any size: (1) Genetics; (2) Aging;  (3) Weight loss;  (4) Constant gravitational pull; (5) Cycles of fullness experienced during pregnancy and breastfeeding, followed by deflation. 
  • Smaller-breasted women, especially if their breasts are quite under-developed, may feel less womanly and wonder whether others perceive them as being less feminine. Such feelings and worries can dampen a woman’s confidence. 
  • Women can feel self-conscious if their breasts don’t fill out clothing, bras, and swimsuits. Bra size or cup size, or both, are problematic. Finding a proper fit can be difficult. Some women in these circumstances envy those who readily fit and fill whatever they wear.
  • Your breast size may be smaller than your waist and hip sizes. As a result, you may not feel as sexy and desirable as you need. You may wish to balance those ratios in general, as well as to look better and proportionate in your clothing.
  • You have gone through pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, perhaps numerous times. The associated hormonal changes, inflation and deflation with the milk supply, and pull and release of tissue have changed the size, position, and shape of your breasts (and possibly the nipples) and caused your breasts to droop. 
  • Weight loss and gain over the years, including from pregnancy, have taken a toll on your breasts, especially in stretch marks and dimpling, and possibly also in sagging. These problems create an unattractive appearance to the breast skin and maybe the nipples, too.
  • Many breasts suffer upper pole deflation and lack volume at the top. Drooping and a lack of volume make breasts look smaller, can adversely affect proper fit of bras and tops, and look less appealing than they once did. 
  • How you view your body changes over the years, especially at different milestones in life. Even if you aren’t extremely unhappy with what you see in the mirror, you may simply be ready to make exciting and different changes to your body. A stellar and board-certified plastic surgeon in Orange County with award-winning ways may be just what you need to restore your shape and boost your self-esteem.

Our Solution

Please allow me, and my staff, to get to know you, your concerns, and your goals during quality consultation time with you. I’m confident that you’ll find our listening skills, compassion, and care to be unmatched and consistent every time—before, during, and after your procedure. Together with you, we can discreetly and confidentially devise a personal plan that combines science and art for augmentation and lift to suit your body and your goal. If you have a photo of your goal, it may be helpful when we discuss your desired addition of volume to enhance breast size and shape, the available types of implants, the level of projection and the amount of cleavage you desire. The lift portion of the surgery also must be decided during our consultation; it will cover the various types and levels of mastopexy to better position your breasts upward on the chest wall in order to correct deflation, symmetry, and shape, and to tighten loose skin. The combined effects of augmentation, lift, and contour to your bustline will match as closely as possible all realistic expectations you and I set. 

Breast augmentation and reshaping with breast implants and breast lift (mastopexy) requires a careful decision process that you and I both understand and agree on. You may be surprised by the options for breast augmentation Orange County offers. Viewing probable results with us that are appropriate for your goals, health, budget, and body size/shape will enable us to reach the right decision for your Orange County plastic surgery. 

  • Augmentation with breast implants:  Many shapes, sizes, and styles of implants are available to us to restore lost volume or increase size: silicone gel or saline, round or shaped, smooth or textured. For example, gummy bear breast implants are popular for a reason and have been for quite a while; made from cohesive silicone gel, they are soft and flexible, so they feel and look natural, and important because they keep their shape. As you may imagine or may have heard, there are pros and cons to placing implants above, partially behind, or completely behind the pectoralis major muscle; we will discuss these with you during your thorough consultation and decide what is best for you.
  • Breast lift:  The location and length of incisions will correspond to the amount of droop and lift that we must correct and achieve. You and I will decide whether you need your nipples to be repositioned from a downward position to a more-forward position, and widened areolas to be reduced; if these steps are needed, we will make the nipple-areola complexes the correct size and position. 

Procedure

As your board-certified Orange County Plastic Surgeon, my top continuous concerns are your safety, the best care, and your satisfaction. Our lauded recipe for success is multimodal. We use proven surgical techniques, and we complement them with state-of-the-art breast implant choices. My team and I will do our best for you in this combined, safe aesthetic breast surgery procedure, usually on an outpatient basis. Gentle tissue handling and tension-free suturing techniques will minimize and camouflage scarring in your Orange County plastic surgery. My expertise in overall healthcare will make the key difference in your optimum recovery and results. Your utmost satisfaction is my ultimate mission!

What are the advantages of undergoing both a breast augmentation and a breast lift at the same time?

  • Save Money:  one operating room fee, one surgeon fee, one anesthesiologist fee, two highly related procedures at one time at a combined/reduced fee, one time off work, one bout of childcare costs, one pain medication to fill (if needed).
  • Safety:  one safe surgery, one round of anesthesia, one recovery rather than two surgeries separated by two bouts of recovery 
  • Convenience and Comfort:  only one round of inconvenience and discomfort/pain to endure, and only one brief period of inability to participate in certain activities while achieving the look you’ve longed for.

Patient Recovery

My staff or I will review your post-op care instructions with you both before and after surgery. When you are well enough to go home with your driver, we want you to have little on your mind other than to enjoy your fuller, naturally elevated, and younger-looking breasts. Your breasts will need an average of 3-6 months to be fully settled after the two combined procedures. The swelling will go down while you heal. With the swelling out of the way, your implants will “drop and fluff,” which will show the position, size, shape, and results that we planned. I jokingly tell my patients that it takes one month for the breasts to be presentable and about three months to be ready for prime time TV. Together with you, we’ll celebrate how much your “new” breasts meet or exceed your and our expectations and have you feeling better about your future.
