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. Our Newport Beach Breast Lift can help to restore your confidence, and give your breasts back a more youthful-looking and perky appearance.
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 Newport Beach breast lift can restore a perkier and more youthful appearance to your bust line so you can finally have the freedom to wear any clothing style you please without worrying about bra straps or sagging breasts detracting from your outfit.
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 Newport Beach plastic surgeon, 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.
At Pacifica Cosmetic Surgery Center, we are dedicated to bringing you the best of care in a relaxing and luxurious environment. Dr. Hendricks is an experienced, highly skilled, triple board-certified plastic surgeon. He is among the most professional and experienced Newport Beach Breast Life providers. He and his team provide life-changing, long-lasting results, helping each patient reach their goals for their body.
Mastopexy is a safe and simple cosmetic surgery performed under general anesthesia. During the breast lift Newport Beach surgeon Dr. Hendricks 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.
A mastopexy may be ideal for any healthy adult who wishes to lift their sagging or deflated breasts. Patients should be in good health and prepare to take at least a week of downtime to recover properly after the procedure. To determine whether you may be an ideal candidate for a breast lift, schedule an appointment for a free consultation with Dr. Hendricks at Pacifica Cosmetic Surgery Center in Newport Beach. Dr. Hendricks will evaluate your medical history and health, as well as the condition of your breasts, and help you determine what procedure is most suitable to help you achieve the look and feel you want. You may be instructed to suspend taking certain medications in preparation for surgery and anesthesia.
Prior to your breast lift procedure, you will receive a consultation at our Newport Beach office. Dr. Hendricks will meet with you and help you set your goals for your breast lift. If you have any questions or concerns about the procedure, Dr. Hendricks will listen and help you understand how the process will go and what you should expect. He will also discuss your medical history and ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure. Dr. Hendricks believes that thorough communication, with the doctor and patient on the same page, is essential to a successful surgery.
Yes. Along with their breast lift Newport Beach patients may also choose to receive other forms of breast enhancement surgery, such as 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.
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 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.

You will be asleep during your operation. Most discomfort subsides during the first two weeks. Dr. Hendricks may prescribe medication for a more comfortable recovery.
Breast lift surgery is considered safe for most healthy individuals. However, complications such as seroma, hematoma, infection, and poor wound healing are possible. Dr. Hendricks will provide you with a complete list of risks and side effects before you agree to move forward.
The results last a long time, often a decade or more. While mastopexy rejuvenates the breasts to appear more youthful-looking, it will not stop the aging process. A future pregnancy, weight gain or loss, or hormonal changes can also affect the breasts over time.
In general, breast lift surgery is an outpatient procedure. Someone must drive you home from the surgical center. Most patients resume driving within a week or so.
Many patients go on to breastfeed successfully after undergoing a breast lift.
Numbness in the nipples and areolas can last several weeks post-operatively. As the nerves heal, normal sensation gradually returns in most cases.
According to national data, the average cost of breast lift surgery is $8,000. The price ultimately depends on several factors, so you may pay more or less than the national average. The type of breast lift, anesthesia fee, surgeon fee, and aftercare charges all factor into the final cost. Finally, a breast lift with implants can cost several thousand dollars more than a breast lift without implants. You will receive a full breakdown of expenses during your free consultation with Dr. Hendricks.
