Breast Lift | Mastopexy

Newport Beach - Orange County - California

Irvine Breast Lift

s women age, the skin of the breast becomes thinner and loses its elasticity. This, along with the effects of gravity as well as pregnancy, may cause breasts to sag. A large amount of weight gain or loss may also cause additional sagging. A drooping bust line may make you look and feel older than you are. cosmetic surgeon Dr. Douglas Hendricks understands the psychological "lift" that a woman may experience by undergoing mastopexy, or breast lift surgery.

During your initial breast lift consultation, Dr. Hendricks will work with you to measure the amount of sag (ptosis) and determine how much lift you require for a natural, youthful look. He may also recommend breast augmentation or breast reduction procedures that can be performed at the same time as the breast lift.

What Happens During a Breast Lift?
Dr. Hendricks will make an incision around the areola (pigmented skin around the nipple) and extend it downward along the breast's curve. Excess skin will be removed and the areola will be repositioned. The skin around the areola will be pulled downward so that the entire breast is now positioned higher.

Is a Breast Lift Right for Me?
Generally, Dr. Hendricks performs breast lifts on women who are in good health, but would like to counteract the effects of gravity, weight gain or loss, or pregnancy, on their breasts. Most of Dr. Hendricks' breast lift patients are no longer planning to have children as future pregnancies may cause additional sagging. A Breast lift is also recommended for women with enlarged areolas. View frequently asked questions about breast lift surgery.

What Can I Expect After the Breast Lift Surgery?
After breast lift surgery, Dr. Hendricks will place a surgical bra over the dressings. You may expect some bruising, swelling and discomfort for a few days-this can be controlled with medication and a pain pump.

Within a few days, you will replace the surgical bra with a soft support bra, which you will wear for three or four weeks. Dissolving sutures will be used as to eliminate the need for suture removal.

It is not unusual to experience some loss of feeling in your nipples and breast skin after breast lift surgery. This numbness usually fades as the swelling goes down. In some patients, however, it may last a year or more, and occasionally it may be permanent. View before and after photos of breast lifts.
