Breast Lift


Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA

For many women, sagging breasts are a source of frustration that they long to correct. Many women feel unhappy and self-conscious when their breasts droop and sag, imparting an aged appearance to their body and detracting from the youthful appearance of certain garments. Breasts can begin to sag and droop for many reasons, ranging from genetics to the aging process, as well as such life events as pregnancy, lactation, and dramatic weight fluctuations.

Breasts can begin to sag and droop for many reasons, ranging from genetics to the aging process, as well as such life events as pregnancy, lactation, and dramatic weight fluctuations. If you are among the many women who are frustrated by not being able to wear your favorite backless or strapless styles because your breasts are just too droopy to go braless even for a single night, it may be time to consider a breast lift.

A breast lift can provide the lift you need to restore a perkier and more youthful appearance to your bust line, allowing you to finally have the freedom to wear any style of clothing that you please without the worry of having to hide bra straps or of sagging breasts detracting from the appearance of your outfit.

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that lifts the sagging breast tissue and positions it at a higher place on the chest, trimming away sagging skin, and imparting a more youthful and perkier appearance to the breasts.

In some cases, the nipple may have to be relocated as part of the breast lift procedure, to produce nipples that face outward instead of downward. Dr. Douglas Hendricks, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon practicing in the Newport Beach area of Southern California, is one of the area’s most highly recommended surgeons for breast enhancement procedures. Dr. Hendricks specializes in breast lift surgery for patients who want to restore youthful firmness to their breasts.

How is a Breast Lift Performed?

A breast lift is a safe and simple cosmetic surgery performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, the doctor lifts and raises the breasts and nipples to a higher position on the chest, re-sculpts the breast tissue to restore firmness, and trims away excess sagging skin. Hairline incisions are typically located around the areola of each breast and lead down to the crease underneath each breast. Dr. Hendricks uses the most modern breast-lift techniques including the “lollipop lift”, also known as the short-scar or vertical breast lift.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?

Our top Newport Beach Breast Lift may be ideal for any healthy adult who wishes to lift their sagging or deflated breasts.

Can I Combine Breast Procedures?

Yes. Many of our patients at Pacifica Cosmetic Surgery Center opt to have a breast lift in combination with some other form of breast enhancement surgery, like breast augmentation with implants, or a breast reduction procedure. Dr. Hendricks is happy to recommend the best combination of procedures to help you achieve your aesthetic goals in a single surgical session whenever possible.

Recovery After a Breast Lift

You will need to rest for a few days following your surgery, so we recommend you plan this out ahead of time. Immediately following the procedure, your breasts will be swollen and sore and may appear bruised for a period of about two weeks.

It’s normal to experience some pain and tenderness at the incision sites, which will typically remain red or pink for several months. Many patients also report a sensation of numbness in the nipples and areolas, which may last for several weeks. You may be instructed to wear a compression bra to protect delicate breast tissue during the healing process.
