All skin tissue loses its elasticity over time. As we age, the production of collagen and elastin slows, weakening your tissues, resulting in sagging. The breasts are most likely to experience sagging because of their weight and gravity. You may find that your drooping breasts developed following a pregnancy or after a recent weight loss. Breast sagging can leave you feeling aged and unattractive. Lifting and repositioning the breasts can enhance your breast appearance and revitalize your confidence.Schedule a consultation
Breast lift surgery is performed with the patient under general anesthesia for comfort and safety.
Most patients can return to work within two weeks of their surgery, but you will need to limit your physical activities for three to four weeks. Bruising can last up to four weeks, and most swelling will subside within six weeks. Your final results will become visible in about eight weeks.
The amount of visible scarring will depend on where your incisions are placed and how well your body heals. Patients typically develop the least noticeable scarring with a periareolar incision and the most with an anchor incision. However, the scars will likely fade over time.
The cost of breast lift surgery varies based on the geographical location of the surgery, the procedural techniques, and the surgeon who performs the operation. The highest price does not always indicate the best quality of service. It is important to choose a surgeon who is experienced and highly skilled in the procedure you wish to undergo in order to truly get the most out of your investment. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the 2015 national average surgeon fee for a breast lift was $4,634.
Breast lift surgery doesn’t restore significant volume to the breasts. If you are unhappy with both the size and placement of your breasts, you should consider combining your breast lift with a breast augmentation, which uses implants to restore fullness to the breasts.
