Whether you are a good candidate for an augmentation, a breast lift/mastopexy, an orange county tummy tuck or the combined procedure needs to be discussed in detail. This is one of the most complicated procedures in breast surgery as it combines several variables.
A mastopexy / breast lift in Newport Beach is an outpatient procedure done either under oral sedation, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia depending on the extent of the procedure and patient preferences. This procedure is usually well-tolerated and pain is often controlled with over the counter medication. As mentioned above, I often combine this procedure with breast augmentation and at times liposuction of the armpit and upper back to improve the overall shape of the torso.
Breast Reduction Newport Beach
Women seeking a breast reduction in Newport Beach all have very similar complaints. Neck pain, back pain, rashes and fungal infections in the bra line, shoulder grooving from heavy bra straps, inability to find clothes that fit, and social anxiety are all common complaints. A breast reduction will reduce the size of your breasts and oftentimes alleviate many of these complaints. From a functional standpoint, this is a very satisfying surgery and my patients often tell me they wish they had gotten the surgery years ago.
There are many ways to do a breast reduction. It is important to understand that they ALL involve scars on the breasts, although most women heal quite well and I take a number of measures to make sure that scarring is optimal. Importantly, I use a breast reduction technique that creates a natural, coned shape to the breast and restores shape and symmetry. A common technique results in a very flat shape 6 months to a year after the operation (in my opinion), and I abandoned this technique during my Plastic Surgery training.
