What can Orange County, CA area patients expect during breast lift surgery?
Improving the bust line is often done for many women in the Orange County, CA area who want to enjoy a better profile, more confidence, and a more youthful appearance. Breasts that are aging or have been affected by changes to the body such as weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and breastfeeding may begin to sag. When women want to look their best during swimsuit season, it is important to consider these changes and find an effective way of reversing the hands of time. Many women who want to improve the position and firmness of their breasts may strongly consider speaking to a plastic surgeon regarding breast lift surgery.
Breast lift surgery is done to remove excess skin, reposition the areola (the nipple area), and provide firmer, more youthful breasts. This revision can be done during an outpatient procedure at The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery within approximately one to three hours. The procedure is done under general anesthesia and incisions are made depending on the best option available for less scarring. There are three types of incisions, the peri areolar lift, the lollipop lift, and the T lift. All of these are used in breast augmentation surgeries, but the incisions chosen for a particular patient will depend on the severity of the sagging and the desires of the patient. During the procedure, Dr. Thuan Nguyen removes excess skin and then repositions the areola for natural-looking results. He also checks to make sure the breasts are symmetrical. At the same time, patients can opt to have implants added for better augmentation of the breast area. This can be done to increase the breast size and improve firmness.
Patients will remain in the recovery area for approximately one hour to ensure patients are able to return home. We recommend patients have someone bring them to their appointment and help take care of them the remainder of the day. Patients will also be educated on how to care for their incisions, what to do with their bandages, and how to encourage proper healing over the next several weeks after the procedure.
