Breast Lift Surgery
As women age, gravity, childbirth, weight loss and a host of other reasons cause their breasts to lose their youthful, full appearance. Sagging, droopy breasts can make you feel much older and less attractive.
Breast lift surgery & procedures can restore the appearance of your breasts by repositioning them higher on your chest and adding the fullness that has been lost with time. Sometimes, a breast lift is combined with a small breast augmentation for an even better rejuvenation of your figure.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Lift Surgery?
You may be a candidate for a breast lift procedure if you are healthy, don’t smoke, and:
- Your breasts sag or have lost their youthful volume
- Your breasts are flat, elongated, or hanging
- Your nipples and areola point downward or are stretched out
- You have maintained a stable weight for at least 6 months
Breast Lift Surgery & Procedure
A breast lift is done in an outpatient surgery center while you are asleep. A typical surgery lasts 1-2 hours, and you will go home later that day. Dr. Hall will discuss with you how the incisions will be made before surgery to minimize their visibility. There are typically no drainage tubes or other complicated dressings for you to worry about.
Breast Lift Recovery
Recovery from a breast lift is not difficult. You will feel sore for the first few days, and can typically return to work after about a week. Your breasts will be somewhat swollen, which will resolve quickly over the first few weeks after your surgery. You will have to wait approximately 6 weeks before starting back on an exercise routine or doing any other strenuous activity.
What Does Breast Lift Surgery Cost?
The cost for a breast lift will vary depending on whether or not implants are used and whether any other procedures are done at the same time. For more information on what is included in the total cost of the procedure, please see the Plastic Surgery Pricing page.
