Sagging breasts become a concern after pregnancy or as women age. Though this issue is natural, it doesn’t have to be something a woman accepts. A breast lift procedure can effectively reverse sagging and enhance the shape of the breast, often without the need for augmentation. If you are interested in breast surgery, Dr. Bailey can perform this procedure here in Newport Beach.
Breast Lift Candidates
Candidates for breast lift procedures are women who experience significant sagging, often caused by having large natural breasts, pregnancy, breastfeeding, the aging process, or weight changes. A consultation with Dr. Bailey is required to determine if this procedure is a good choice and if it needs to be combined with other operations, such as breast augmentation, to get the best results.
Breast Lift Surgery Procedure
In most cases, breast lifts are performed using three incisions. The first circles around the areola, or the dark skin around the nipple. The second incision is done under the nipple and continues until the bottom of the breast. The third and final incision is done along the breast base crease.
These incisions allow for the precise removal of excess skin. They also allow for the new location of the nipple. Once the excess skin has been removed, the nipple and areola are placed in a new position, and the breast is reshaped. In some cases, Dr. Bailey places an absorbable biologic mesh (Galaflex 3DR™) to support the breast tissue for better long term results. This stimulates the body to create a long term layer of fibrous tissue as it is absorbed.
The good news is that your breast lift results can be seen immediately. It may take several weeks for your breasts to heal fully, but we’ll support you at every step.
Discomfort, swelling, and bruising are all common after a breast lift procedure. The skin in the area may also feel tight. These effects get better over time and last about two weeks. Dr. Bailey will discuss pre and post-operative care to ensure your body heals properly and you get the best results.
