A breast lift, or mastopexy, can restore and reshape sagging breasts, creating more pleasing body contours and a more youthful appearance. With a breast lift in Long Beach, Dr. Pearlman Hicks can create very natural results, making the breasts perkier and addressing any shape asymmetries.
Gravity, pregnancy, nursing and time can all cause breasts to sag and lose their shape and firmness. A breast lift can correct these effects, raising the breasts and restoring firmness and shape. A stretched areola can also be reduced during a breast lift.
Some women who believe they need breast augmentation will find that a breast lift will better accomplish their desired end results. Others may choose to have implants inserted during the breast lift procedure for a breast lift and augmentation. This combination of a breast lift and implants is called a breast augmentation with lift.
While a breast lift with implants can provide both sag reduction and volume increase, if you are only looking for a reduction in sagging, a breast lift without implants may be the better option for you.

Post op has been great. Doctor was available after hours via telephone and genuinely concerned with my recovery.
Breast lift patients should be physically and emotionally healthy, and have realistic expectations. Breasts of any size can be lifted, but large breasts may begin to sag again sooner than smaller breasts.
Women often seek a breast lift after having children. Pregnancy and nursing can stretch the breast skin and leave the breasts sagging. If you are planning to become pregnant it is best to wait to have the procedure. A breast lift will not create greater risk for pregnancies or nursing, but the results will almost always be reversed by the pregnancy.
