Let Us Help You Reclaim Your Youthful Appearance
Our Newport Beach breast lift surgery provides a more youthful-looking breast profile. This is accomplished by raising the breasts and removing any excess or sagging skin and tightening the surrounding tissue.
The procedure will not significantly alter the size or volume of your breasts, so if you want to change both the size and the profile of your breasts, talk to Dr. Garrett A. Wirth about breast augmentation or a breast reduction.
Who is a Candidate for Breast Lift Surgery?
Any healthy woman seeking to raise a saggy or loose breast profile and achieve tighter, more youthful- looking breasts makes a strong candidate for a breast lift in Newport Beach. The key is to become as informed as possible regarding the realistic expectations of this surgery. If these expectations meet your personal health and body image goals, then this procedure may be a great option.
It is especially helpful in counteracting the loose and sagging skin that often accompanies:
- Dramatic weight fluctuations
As with any surgical procedure performed here in Orange County, you will work closely with Dr. Wirth and his team before undergoing the operation. They can help determine how beneficial a Newport Beach breast lift surgery will be for you, given your body and personal goals.
How Does it Work?
As your surgery begins, you will receive anesthesia to reduce intraoperative pain and discomfort. Dr. Wirth will then make a series of incisions. Usually, these incisions follow one of three patterns: around the areola, around the areola (periareolar) and vertically down to the breast crease (“lollipop”), or around the areola, vertically down to the breast crease, and then horizontally along the breast crease (“anchor”).
After making the necessary incisions, Dr. Wirth will lift and reshape underlying breast tissue, and reposition the nipple and areola to a more youthful-looking height and position. If needed, he will also reduce the size of your areolas and remove any excess skin surrounding the breast. Finally, all incisions will be sutured.
What Happens After Surgery?
Immediately following surgery, your incisions will be dressed and bandaged. You may also be given compression garments or a support bra to help decrease swelling and to support your breasts. Until all swelling and soreness subsides, be careful that your incisions do not experience any significant stress, motion, or abrasion. As always, be sure to follow any postoperative instructions Dr. Wirth or his staff may give you.
The aesthetic results of your Newport Beach breast lift will be apparent immediately following surgery. In time, any residual swelling will decrease and the appearance of incision lines will become less noticeable.

What do I do After Breast Lift Surgery?
After your Newport Beach breast lift surgery, you want to be able to enjoy your lovely new breasts as soon as possible. Follow these recovery tips to speed healing.
- Arrange for a friend or family member to help you for the first day or two after surgery. Your body needs to rest, expending its energy on healing.
- Follow your aftercare instructions to the letter. This includes caring for your incisions as directed, taking all medications at the proper time, and having plenty of rest.
- Do not take any supplements or medications unless cleared by Dr. Wirth, as some supplements have blood-thinning properties that can affect healing.
- Take the full course of antibiotics as directed. Don’t skimp on your antibiotic medication, as the full course is required for it to perform as it should.
- Take gentle walks from the first day on, but rest is your primary responsibility. The more you rest, the faster you will heal.
- Eat healthy foods, drink lots of water, and avoid alcohol or excessive salt consumption.
- Sleep with your upper body elevated on a foam wedge or extra pillows, and sleep on your back.
- No lifting, stretching, or any other motion that could put stress on your incisions.
Breast lift FAQ
Will I have visible scars after a breast lift?
To restore saggy, droopy breasts requires incisions. Any incisions will be placed carefully so that once healed, they will be invisible when wearing revealing clothing, including bras and bikinis.
Can my nipple size be reduced?
If you have stretched or elongated nipples, they can be surgically enhanced to be more attractive, as well as relocated on the newly reshaped breast mound so they are facing forward in a youthful, pert position.
Do I need an augmentation with my breast lift?
If your breasts have lost volume, or you feel they are too small or uneven in size, your surgery can be a combination breast lift and augmentation to create harmony, balance, and a more alluring look.
Should I wait to have a breast lift until I am done having children?
It may be advised that you wait, as another pregnancy and breastfeeding could once again cause stretched, sagging skin. If you want a breast lift prior to having children, it is important that the surgery is performed very carefully so the nipple structure is protected, so inform our surgeon of your plans.
