Orange County Breast Lift
For some women, pregnancy, nursing, and aging can lead to a loss of breast volume, as well as a significant decline in the breasts’ positioning on the chest. Many of these women turn to breast lift surgery (“mastopexy”) to restore a more youthful appearance to the bustline.
This procedure typically includes the following steps:
- Removal of excess, stretched breast skin
- Repositioning of the areola and nipples
- Adjusting the surrounding skin to reshape the breast
In addition to gaining breasts that rest at a more attractive position, many patients report the benefit of increased firmness as well.
Often, informed patients express concern regarding an association between breast lift surgery and scarring. As one who has provided this procedure to a large number of women, Dr. Ambe believes that choosing the right surgical technique for each unique patient is critical to scar prevention. He exercises discretion in selecting each patient’s breast lift method, and utilizes a strict post-operative protocol for scar prevention. These measures are often very effective in minimizing this risk.
Depending upon the degree of sagging (“ptosis”) that has occurred, you may wish to combine breast lift surgery with breast augmentation to attain your ideal result. Many patients opt to undergo this combination, and are typically highly satisfied with the outcome.
Dr. Ambe can discuss breast lift surgery and recovery details with you during your pre-operative appointment.
