Are You a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?

You may be a good candidate for a breast lift or mastopexy if you:

  • Want raised and reshaped breasts
  • Would like excess skin around the breasts removed
  • Seek repositioning of the nipples
  • Would like restoration of the breasts after pregnancy, weight loss, or aging
  • Want to combine a breast lift with another procedure, like augmentation

How a Breast Lift is Done

During a breast lift procedure, an incision is made around the areola and/or the breast’s lower crease. The surgeon then lifts and reshapes the breast tissue to create a firmer contour before removing excess skin. In some cases, implants may be combined with a breast lift to restore lost volume or enhance overall shape.

Long-Term Maintenance of a Breast Lift

Long-term maintenance is essential to ensuring the longevity and effectiveness of a breast lift procedure. After undergoing surgery at Aesthera Plastic Surgery, patients will be given specific guidelines to follow and incorporate certain practices into their routine to maintain the results achieved. Proper care, attention, and commitment are crucial for preserving the enhanced appearance of lifted breasts.

Wearing a supportive bra that offers sufficient lift and protection is vital. This helps minimize gravitational forces on the breasts and reduces the risks of sagging or drooping over time. Choosing bras with wide straps and adequate cup sizes that comfortably hold the breasts in place is recommended.

Regular exercise is significant in long-term maintenance after a breast lift. Engaging in activities targeting chest muscles can help strengthen and tone these muscles, providing additional support to the lifted breasts. However, individuals should consult with their plastic surgeon before starting any new exercise regimen post-surgery.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle by adopting proper nutrition habits can contribute to sustaining long-lasting results from a breast lift procedure. A well-balanced diet promotes overall wellness and aids in weight management allowing for fewer fluctuations in weight which can affect breast appearance negatively. Avoiding smoking or excessive alcohol consumption contributes to healthier skin elasticity and helps maintain long-lasting results.

By adhering to these recommendations provided by Dr. CV Chegireddy, along with regular check-ups, patients can ensure their breast lift investment lasts years while enjoying beautiful results for an extended period.

The Different Types of Breast Lift Techniques

Several types of breast lift techniques are available to address various concerns and achieve desired results. The method will depend on the degree of sagging, nipple position, and overall breast shape.

One common technique is the periareolar lift, a “donut” lift. This involves making an incision around the edge of the areola and removing excess skin before reshaping and lifting the breasts. This technique best suits patients with mild sagging or requiring minimal lifting.
A more extensive procedure is the anchor lift, also known as an inverted-T or Wise pattern lift. The anchor lift provides significant lifting for patients with moderate to severe sagging or who desire more dramatic results.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to a breast lift procedure. It’s crucial to consult with an Aesthera plastic surgeon who can assess your unique situation and recommend the most appropriate technique based on your goals and individual anatomy.

Cost of a Breast Lift Procedure

The cost of a breast lift procedure can vary depending on a few factors, such as the plastic surgery clinic’s geographical location, the surgeon’s experience and reputation, and the specific techniques used. Health insurance coverage may be available for breast lift surgery if it is deemed medically necessary by a healthcare provider and covered by an individual’s health plan. However, each insurance plan has criteria for determining medical necessity and coverage eligibility.

Patients should check with their insurance providers to decide whether or not they qualify for coverage. We will work with you to obtain authorization from your insurer, which might require a letter from our plastic surgeon and submission of photographs.

Frequently Asked Questions about Breast Reduction Surgery

Yes, it is still possible to breastfeed after a breast lift. Breastfeeding is a natural process and does not rely on the shape or size of the breasts. That being said, it can take some time for the breasts to return fully functional after a breast lift procedure. If you plan on undergoing a breast lift, discussing the procedure with a plastic surgeon before the procedure is essential.

You may likely experience some discomfort or pain following a breast lift. This is normal and should be expected. Pain is usually mild to moderate and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

Yes, it is possible to have scarring after a breast lift. The degree and visibility of any scarring will depend on your breast lift type. Some patients may have barely visible scars, while others may have more noticeable scars. These scars usually fade over time, but they can take several months to heal fully. Depending on your skin type and the scar area, you may benefit from topical treatments or other methods to reduce the visibility of the scars. Your surgeon can discuss the options available for minimizing any visible scarring.

Many people combine a breast lift with other procedures like breast augmentation (implant insertion), breast reduction, or even tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) in a mommy makeover.

While a breast lift can provide long-lasting results, the natural aging process and factors like gravity, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can affect breast appearance over time. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and weight can help prolong the results.

While a breast lift reshapes sagging breasts by removing excess skin, breast augmentation involves enhancing breast size and shape using implants. Both procedures can address different concerns with a breast lift focusing on lifting and firming the breasts and breast augmentation adding volume.

It's generally recommended to wait until after pregnancy and breastfeeding to undergo a breast lift. Pregnancy and breastfeeding have the potential to alter the results of a breast lift, leading to the need for potential touch-up surgeries.

In the hands of a talented plastic surgeon, a breast lift can result in a natural appearance. The extent to which the results look natural depends on factors like the patient's individual anatomy and desired outcome.

Yes, fat transfer from another part of the body can be used for a breast lift procedure. It's a more subtle increase in volume compared to implants, and not all the transferred fat may survive, requiring potential touch-ups.

No. However, you should always tell your mammogram technician that you’ve had surgery on your breasts to ensure accurate results.
