Breast Lift Surgery $4,000 (saline breast implants), Create a More Youthful Breast Contour
Women can reshape and resize their breasts to reverse the signs of aging. Breast lift and breast reduction procedures performed at Coral Gables Cosmetic Center in South florida, can provide women with contour and shape, volume and fullness. As women age, the weakened elasticity of their skin becomes most evident in their breasts. A mastoplexy also known as (breast lift) returns breasts to a "perky" and full shape, and restores patients' confidence by vastly improving their appearance.
Breastfeeding, fluctuations in weight and the general aging process all take their toll on a woman's shape. Drooping, saggy breasts that have lost their volume and contours are uncomfortable and an undeniable sign of a woman's age. Breast lift surgery is designed to reverse the impact of time and give women a more aesthetic shape, with firmer breasts that are in a better position. Many women choose to combine a breast lift with breast implants, meaning they undergo one surgery yet benefit from the enhancements both procedures provide.
The most common breast lift surgery procedure involves an anchor-shaped incision, which wraps around the nipple, then along the bottom of the breast and inframammary fold. Excess skin and tissue are removed at the incision site, and if required the nipple and areola are repositioned to sit higher on the breast. The time required for the surgery depends on the amount of lift being sought, the individual patient, and whether breast implants are being included in the procedure.
Can Breast Augmentation Be Combined With a Lift? Yes. Breast augmentation can be performed with a breast lift and many women choose to have these two procedures performed together. The lift will provide you with the perky, youthful breasts you are looking for while the augmentation will provide you with the fullness and size you desire.
1. Peri-Areolar Lift
Often called a donut lift, this type of breast lift is ideal for someone who has minimal sagging. This procedure uses an incision that goes around the outside of your areola. The breast is then lifted and adjusted for a beautiful shape.
Many people choose to pair a breast augmentation with the donut lift. The areola is often adjusted in size during the procedure as well. That way, you do not have to worry about a stretched areola on a perky breast.
2. Crescent Lift
The crescent lift is another breast lift that is often paired with breast implants. This procedure is ideal for those who have a minimal amount of sagging. The incision will be placed along the top half of the areola. A crescent lift is not common, but it can be done based on the needs of the patient and the preferences of the surgeon.
3. Inverted T Lift
The inverted T lift is often referred to as the anchor lift. The procedure is performed on those who have a considerable amount of sagging and a large amount of excess skin. During surgery, the surgeon will remove the skin and fat to provide you with a beautiful breast lift.
The incisions in this procedure are different than the first two types of lifts. There will be three incisions made on the breast. One will go along the edge of the areola, one will go along the crease underneath the breast, and the other will go from the bottom of the areola to the crease on the underside of the breast.
The incisions will fade over time if you properly care for them and when you wear a bra or bikini top, they cannot be seen.
4. Vertical Lift
The vertical lift or lollipop lift is used often in cosmetic surgery offices. During the procedure, the surgeon is able to remove the excess skin that is on the breast that causes sagging. Once the skin is removed, the breast can be reshaped and contoured on the body.
The incisions are not as intense as the inverted T lift. Two incisions will be made including one that runs from the bottom of the areola to the crease under the breast and one around the edge of the areola.
Similar to most other surgical procedures, there is a recovery period to be expected after having breast lift surgery. Patients are recommended to plan for a week off work, and for two-weeks post surgery can experience some swelling, bruising, and soreness. To ease discomfort pain medication can be prescribed. To speed the healing process, patients wear a supportive garment that controls swelling and protects the incision site. The results of a breast lift become fully evident after approximately four weeks. Scars will fade into a pale line when treated in accordance with your physician's directions. Patients will be checked regularly by their Coral Gables board-certified physician during their recovery period.
