Five main causes 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.
Our Solution: Breast Lift (Mastopexy) in Orange County
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 I will decide on your lift in consultation, including 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. My team and I will do our 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 I set.
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, my goals are to do all this while placing your safety, satisfaction, and care as my top priority. A breast lift in Yorba Linda, Fullerton may be done on an outpatient basis
- alone to maintain your current breast size but improve shape/position
- with a breast reduction. Excess skin and breast volume are removed and the breast is reshaped.
- with Orange County Breast Lift or breast augmentation, using implants to restore lost volume and increase size. Together, we will decide the style, size, and shape of implant to be used based on the level of projection and amount of cleavage you desire.
- or as part of a bikini makeover to recharge your overall appearance.
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 we 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 my Orange County Breast Lift 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.
