Over time, breasts naturally begin to droop or sag. Our Orange County breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that can help reverse these issues. This procedure raises the breasts by removing excess skin, tightening up the tissue, and restoring the nipple and areola to a more natural size and position. The final result is a more symmetric, youthful, and natural appearance.
Create a more youthful figure: Breast lift surgery in Irvine
At South Coast Plastic Surgery, Dr. Song performs breast lift surgery for women who may be experiencing a lack of self-confidence or body image issues. Such a loss of confidence may be due to breasts that have begun to sag over time, enlarged areolas, or breasts that have become slightly misshapen due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. Whatever the cause, you have the right to feel confident and to have perky, lovely breasts.

What does a breast lift treat?
A breast lift can resolve a range of aesthetic issues with the breasts, including:
- Sagging breasts
- Breasts that have drifted lower on the chest wall
- Breasts that appear flat
- Nipples that point downwards
- One breast that sags more or appears flatter than the other
- Nipples appear below the breast crease
- Stretched areolas that appear too large
Where are the incisions in a breast lift?
The type of incision used will vary, depending on how much the breasts are sagging. Prior to surgery, Dr. Song will work closely with you to design a surgical plan that best suits your anatomy and the results you desire. The incisions may be:
- Around the nipple structure (areolae)
- From the bottom of the areola down to the breast crease
- Along the breast crease
What is the breast lift procedure like?
Breast lift procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia, but you may be a candidate for conscious sedation or “twilight” anesthesia. In either case, you will not experience any pain during the surgery.
What is the recovery time after a breast lift?
The results of your breast lift in Ladera Ranch will be immediately visible. You may experience minor swelling, bruising, and discomfort for several days, but these will subside as the healing process moves forward. Following surgery, you will receive post-operative instructions that are unique to you, but you can expect to wear a front-closing, wire-free, soft cup bra for approximately four weeks. It is also recommended that you wear the bra during both night and day to reduce swelling and to provide the support you need. The only time that the bra should be taken off is during bathing.
A complete recovery will require several weeks, but you can resume many of your daily activities within a few days, return to the gym for light exercise in two weeks, and resume unrestricted exercise in four weeks.
