One of the most alluring attributes of youth and beauty is having perky breasts. Unfortunately, most women begin to experience breast ptosis – the sagging of breasts – as they age, which is often due to gravity, skin laxity, weight fluctuation, pregnancy, or breastfeeding and can leave them feeling less feminine and desirable.

With a complete range of breast enhancement procedures, including breast lift surgery, Dr. Kelishadi helps patients achieve their ultimate aesthetic goals and feel more confident about their bustlines than ever. Interested in learning more about the exciting transformations that are possible with breast lift surgery? Let’s do it.

What’s the best procedure for sagging breasts?

Once a woman begins to notice that her breasts are changing, she may start to consider her options for cosmetic breast enhancement. Many women have questions about whether a breast augmentation vs. breast lift surgery is the right option, and the answer will depend on a number of factors, including the nature and severity of their particular concerns, their desired outcome, and others.

Generally speaking, breast augmentation with implants or a fat transfer to the breast is suitable for patients who want to add volume to their breasts. For women whose primary concern is droopy breasts, a breast lift may be the more appropriate option. In many cases, a combination of breast augmentation plus lift can provide the most complete and natural-looking transformation. During your initial consultation for breast enhancement surgery in Newport Beach, Dr. Kelishadi will examine your breasts, discuss your concerns and goals, and recommend a customized surgical plan that fits your needs.

How does a breast lift work?

Breast lift surgery, formally known as mastopexy surgery, involves removing loose, excess skin from the breast and repositioning the breast to a higher, more youthful point on the chest wall. The incisions are then closed with sutures, which pull the remaining skin tight for a firmer, perkier new look. There are several types of breast lift incisions used today, the most common of which include:

  • Lollipop breast lift incision
  • Inverted-T breast lift incision
  • Anchor breast lift incision

It is important for patients considering breast lift surgery to understand that some visible scarring is an unavoidable outcome. However, breast lift scars can usually be concealed beneath clothing and undergarments, and proper scar care techniques can help scars heal and fade appropriately.

Am I a candidate for breast lift surgery?

Women who are in good health, nonsmokers, and are done having children and breastfeeding may be considered good candidates for breast lift surgery. Some of the most common signs and symptoms that may mean a breast lift is right for you include:

  • Drooping breasts
  • Sagging breasts
  • Wrinkled breasts
  • Deflated breasts
  • Breasts point downward
  • Nipples point to the ground

With a breast lift, all of these concerns can be addressed and improved, helping to restore your confidence and a perkier, younger, more attractive silhouette that can last for years.
