Breast Lift in Ladera Ranch, CA

Everyone wants to feel confident and comfortable in their own skin. All skin tissue loses its elasticity over time. As we age, collagen and elastin production slows, weakening your tissues and resulting in sagging. The breasts are most likely to experience sagging because of their weight and gravity. You may find that your drooping breasts developed following pregnancy or after recent weight loss. Breast sagging can leave you feeling aged and unattractive. Lifting and repositioning the breasts can enhance your breast appearance and revitalize your confidence.

What Is a Breast Lift?

Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess sagging breast skin to give the breasts a more elevated, perky, and youthful look. The remaining breast tissue is lifted and reshaped to improve its appearance. Additionally, the nipples and areolas may also be reduced and repositioned to suit the breasts' new position and shape.

What to Expect During Breast Lift Surgery?

Before your breast lift procedure, Dr. Doezie will review your surgical plan with you once again to ensure that you are both on the same page. Afterward, you will be given general anesthesia to make you comfortable during surgery. Dr. Doezie will then make incisions around the breasts in the agreed-upon locations. Once the incisions are made, Dr. Doezie will reposition the breast tissue, resize the areolas, and move the nipples up. The excess sagging breast skin will be trimmed, leaving you with lifted, perky breasts.

What Is Breast Lift Recovery Like?

Everyone’s body will heal at their own rate, but most patients experience around a six-week recovery period following breast lift surgery. You can expect some swelling and redness around your breasts, and they may feel sore. The first few days after the procedure are when you’ll typically experience the most discomfort. You’ll also be expected to wear a compression bra, which will help to reduce swelling.

Dr. Doezie will give you specific instructions on how to care for your breasts during recovery and let you know when you’re cleared for certain physical activities. Make sure to follow these instructions to allow for a safe recovery.

What Can I Expect From My Breast Lift Results?

There will be a noticeable difference in the position of your breasts immediately after your breast lift. However, your breasts will settle into their intended position over the next few months. The swelling will subside with time. Your breast lift results are designed to last for a long time as long as you maintain a steady weight.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of anesthesia is used for breast lift surgery?

Breast lift surgery is performed with the patient under general anesthesia for comfort and safety.

How long does it take to recover from breast lift surgery?

Most patients can return to work within two weeks of their surgery, but you will need to limit your physical activities for three to four weeks. Bruising can last up to four weeks, and most swelling will subside within three months. Your final results will become visible in about three to four months.

Will I have visible scarring?

The amount of visible scarring will depend on where your incisions are placed and how well your body heals. Patients typically develop the least noticeable scarring with a periareolar incision and the most with an anchor incision. However, the scars will likely fade over time.

How much does a breast lift cost?

The cost of breast lift surgery varies based on the geographical location of the surgery, the procedural techniques, and the surgeon who performs the operation. The highest price does not always indicate the best quality of service. It is important to choose a surgeon who is experienced and highly skilled in the procedure you wish to undergo in order to truly get the most out of your investment.

Will breast lift improve breast volume?

Breast lift surgery doesn’t restore significant volume to the breasts. If you are unhappy with both the size and placement of your breasts, you should consider combining your breast lift with a breast augmentation, which uses implants to restore fullness to the breasts.

Does insurance cover breast lift surgery?

Since breast lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure, many insurance providers will not cover it because it isn’t considered a medical necessity. Dr. Doezie also offers patient financing options through CareCredit®.
