Is breast lift safe? A breast lift is a safe and popular procedure to revive once youthful and perky breasts. Newport Beach breast lift surgery is indicated for patients who have adequate breast volume but whose breast mounds have dropped due to the aging process. Naturally, as a woman’s breasts age, there is a tendency for the breast mounds and nipples to droop.
Depending on the level of drooping and/or sagging of the breast tissues may look natural and aesthetically pleasing; however, when the breast tissues and nipples fall below the inframammary crease, the under breast crease meeting the abdomen, then the beauty and aesthetic of the breast shape can be compromised.
Newport Beach breast lifts are meant to reverse possibly present, undesirable changes of the breasts that you may have observed including breast mound drooping, sagging nipples, the loss of cleavage or upper pole fullness of the breasts, as well as asymmetry in your areola and/or breast mound shape, size, or positioning.
There are possible risks and side effects that should also be noted in breast lift surgery. Possible side effects include, but are not limited to, numbness, hypertrophic scars, breast/nipple asymmetry, as well as nursing problems.
Breast lift surgery risks include, but are not limited to, deep vein thrombosis, hematomas, seromas, infection, as well as skin edge death/ open wound. Unfortunately, any delays in healing of the skin edges will compromise your aesthetic outcome.
