What Is a Breast Lift?
Many factors can contribute to the sagging of the breasts – weight fluctuations, pregnancy, nursing, the aging process. But no matter what their cause, sagging breasts can make many women feel self-conscious, insecure, or embarrassed about their bodies. Dr. Carrie Houssock can perform a breast lift to restore what nature has taken away or enhance the original breast shape—all while improving the patient’s spirit. Breast lift surgery, medically referred to as mastopexy, is designed to reduce sagging, raise the position of the breasts on the chest wall, and remove excess skin. The lift is created by tightening the envelope of breast skin and elevating the nipple position. The areola size can also be reduced with this procedure.
What Happens During the Breast Lift Procedure?
Our plastic surgeon customizes each breast lift depending upon the patient’s unique goals and concerns. There are a number of techniques that can be used, though most procedures will begin with an incision hidden along the edge of the areola that will extend downward toward the breast crease. During the procedure, any excess skin will be removed, the breasts will be lifted to a more youthful position on the chest wall, and the position of the nipples can be adjusted as well as the size of the areolae. Afterward, the breasts should have a firmer, perkier appearance with a more youthful shape.
“The team made me feel comfortable and cared for from my consultation through every step of the process. I felt informed about the surgery and recovery and very encouraged to ask questions. Every time I am in the office I can feel how invested Carrie and the entire team are in my journey.”
How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost?
Since each breast lift surgery is custom-tailored, the price may vary from case to case; however, the average cost for breast lift surgery at our practice is typically between $9,000 and $10,500. Common factors that may influence the price of a breast lift include the technique used during surgery, the complexity of the procedure, hospital and anesthesia fees, the experience of the plastic surgeon, and the geographic location of the practice. At the conclusion of the preliminary consultation, you will receive an accurate price quote for your breast lift. If interested, you can choose from one of our plastic surgery financing options to receive installment plans with low monthly payments as well as little to no interest loans.
