A Revitalized Silhouette
Pregnancy, aging, and weight loss can have a significant impact on the quality of your breast tissue. Over time, gravity can impact the position and projection of your breasts, leading to breast ptosis (sagging). Women who have sagging or drooping breasts often feel that they lack a youthful appearance. Women with adequate breast volume who have begun to experience ptosis could benefit from restoring breast firmness and projection. Dr. Michael Jazayeri performs breast lift surgery to restore youthful and attractive breasts.
Elevate Your Breast Appeal
Factors such as breastfeeding, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, aging, genetic traits, and gravity can negatively affect breast elasticity. At our practice in Orange Country Breast lift surgery revitalizes the breasts, restoring their firmness, tautness, and position. Breasts may sag due to a higher ratio of skin to breast tissue. This issue can be addressed by augmenting volume, eliminating surplus skin, or a combination of both. We can elevate the breasts by excising excess skin and fortifying the breast tissue.
A Journey to an Improved You
Breast lift surgery comes with multiple benefits. It can enhance the firmness of the breasts, correct the projection of nipples, rejuvenate the overall appearance, and improve breast shape while reducing under-breast irritation. If the areolas have enlarged over time, this procedure can reduce their size. Additionally, if the nipples are oriented downwards or situated low on the breast, a breast lift can adjust their position. It can also improve the symmetry of breasts that differ in size or shape.
Breast Lift Options
Various incision options are available for your breast lift surgery, and the one to be used for your procedure will depend on the extent of correction required. Dr. Jazayeri will determine the best incision for you during your initial consultation. During the procedure, excess breast skin is removed, and the tissue is repositioned on the chest and sutured into place.
Women with breast ptosis who also lack the attractive volume they desire should consider combining a breast augmentation with their lift. A breast lift cannot restore lost volume, and an augmentation won’t improve drooping breast tissue. Women with breast ptosis at the time of their augmentation are more likely to develop future complications, such as double-bubble deformity or implants that bottom out. A breast lift will strengthen your breast tissue, and augmentation will improve your breast shape and size.
A Breast Lift Uplift
Upon your arrival, Dr. Jazayeri will review your medical history and discuss your aesthetic objectives. Together, he'll determine the most appropriate and sustainable procedure for you. If you maintain a stable weight, are in overall good health, and are dissatisfied with the shape, size, or sagging of your breasts - whether due to elongation or a drooping or flat appearance - you are likely a suitable candidate for breast lift surgery. This procedure can also address issues with nipple placement and the shape and size of the areola. Non-smokers generally make better candidates for breast lift procedures. Ideally, breast surgery should be considered after completing childbearing as the body changes experienced during pregnancy can potentially negate the effects of any prior breast surgery.
Redefining Your Contours
The transformative results of breast lift surgery will be immediately noticeable post-procedure. However, it's important to note that some initial swelling and visible incision scars are a normal part of the healing process. As your body recovers and these temporary post-operative changes gradually subside, the fully realized outcome of the surgery will become increasingly apparent. The weeks and months following the operation will showcase a natural settling of your breasts into their new, uplifted position. While the incision scars will never completely disappear, they will fade significantly over time. The degree of this fading can vary based on individual skin types and the specific aftercare measures taken. Achieving the best long-term results from your breast lift surgery extends beyond the operation itself. It necessitates an ongoing commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
This includes maintaining a stable weight, engaging in regular physical activity, following a balanced diet, and refraining from smoking. This not only preserves the aesthetic results of the surgery but also contributes to overall wellness and body confidence. With a breast lift Orange County patients can enjoy long-lasting results through a combination of Dr. Jazayeri's skilled surgical techniques and diligent post-operative care. With these, you can look forward to many years of satisfaction with your revitalized appearance.
Optimal Results with Proper Healing
Following your doctor's instructions is paramount to your recovery after breast lift surgery. Bandages and dressings applied during surgery play an essential role in the healing process. Along with these, wearing your prescribed compression garments or supportive bra is crucial—these aid in maintaining support for your breasts, promoting proper healing, and optimizing the surgical result. Typically, you should be able to return to regular activities or work within about five days post-surgery. However, this can vary based on the individual and the nature of their job.
More strenuous activities, such as cardiovascular workouts, should be avoided for approximately three weeks to allow your body enough time to heal properly. Six weeks of rest is usually advised for activities requiring greater physical exertion, like strength training, yoga, or heavy lifting. This time frame ensures your body is sufficiently recovered to handle more strenuous physical demands. Always consult with Dr. Jazayeri before resuming any exercise regimen or physically demanding tasks to ensure a safe and successful recovery.

Embrace Comfort & Convenience
Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri, a distinguished plastic surgeon in Santa Ana, California, strongly advocates for patient comfort and safety during all procedures. His comprehensive approach to patient care includes using local anesthesia for various surgical procedures.
Local anesthesia is a type of anesthetic used to numb a specific area of the body where a surgical procedure will be performed. It allows the patient to remain awake and comfortable while avoiding the potential risks and side effects associated with general anesthesia. In Dr. Jazayeri's hands, an array of procedures can be carried out under local anesthesia, often leading to quicker recovery times and lower complication rates. These procedures include many facelifts, liposuctions, neck lifts, Brazilian butt lifts (BBLs), mini tummy tuck and, in certain cases, even breast and arm lift.
By taking advantage of local anesthesia's potential, Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri strives to make cosmetic and reconstructive surgery more accessible, comfortable, and patient-centered. His commitment to this safe anesthesia approach in Santa Ana, California, signals a new era in plastic surgery where patient comfort and safety are at the forefront.
