About Breast Lift Surgery
The breast lift, known as “mastopexy,” can correct issues of deflation, shape, and symmetry. Different types/levels of lifts can be done in your Orange County plastic surgery procedure. You and board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi will decide on your lift options during your consultation. During this time, Dr. Kelishadi will also discuss whether you require repositioning of the nipples from a downward to a more-forward position, reduction of widened areolas, or the addition of breast implants to improve the final aesthetics. Dr. Kelishadi and the SSK Plastic Surgery team will do thier best to return your breasts to a higher,more-youthful contour and position on the chest wall, to minimize and camouflage scarring, and to match as closely as possible all realistic expectations you and Dr. Kelishadi set. We look forward to seeing you at our Newport Beach, CA, practice!
Breast Lift Reviews
"Very pleased with my breast lift - Dr. Kelshadi is the best! He gave me the perfect breast lift with no implants needed. I already have large breasts and they were just sagging more over time, but he totally worked his magic on me! They're nice and perky, Still swollen (it's only day 2 after surgery) and I can't wait to see what I look like in a few weeks after the swelling goes down a bit. I barely have any bruising and he..."- N. / RealSelf / Sep 12, 2016
You are an ideal candidate for a breast lift if you suffer from the following five causes that can contribute to the droop (ptosis) of breasts of nearly any size:
- Constant gravitational pull
- Cycles of fullness experienced during pregnancy and breastfeeding, followed by deflation
- Weight loss
Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight changes can significantly alter a woman’s shape. Sagging breasts with a lack of volume at the top along with loose skin and additional fat in the abdomen (and possibly hips, thighs and buttocks) can lower your confidence. You may wish to have a high-caliber Orange County breast lift surgeon improve your shape to a pre-pregnancy state and skyrocket your self-esteem.
To achieve our goal, the length and location of incisions are decided according to the amount of droop that must be corrected and the type of lift we’ve agreed on. The nipple-areola complexes are made the desired size and correct height. Keep in mind that as your Orange County plastic surgeon, Dr. Kelishadi's goals are to do all this while placing your safety, satisfaction, and care as his top priority. A breast lift may be done on an outpatient basis depending on your treatment plan, which may be performed:
- alone to maintain your current breast size, but improve shape/position
- with a breast reduction to remove excess skin and re-shape the breast
- with a breast augmentation, using implants to restore lost volume and increase size
- or as part of a bikini makeover to recharge your overall appearance
What To Expect
After outpatient surgery under general anesthesia (perhaps also with a local anesthetic to maximize pain control), you will recover in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU), where our staff will review your post-operative care instructions that were discussed prior to surgery. We use simple dressings that are easy to take care of and comfortable support garments. When you are well enough for your driver to take you home, we intend you to have little to worry about so that you can start to enjoy the naturally elevated, youthful, and forward-looking results to your breasts.
Oral pain relievers should keep you comfortable. We will remove your light dressing at your first follow-up appointment in our Orange County office and then monitor your progress while your sutures dissolve over time. You may do light activities in 7-10 days, but should avoid sports and other strenuous activities, including lifting over 10 pounds, for 3-4 weeks.
Plan Your Procedure
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.
