A woman’s sense of femininity, self-esteem, and confidence are often connected to appearance and one of the most significant features that play a role in this for a woman is her breasts. The breasts can change over time. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and the aging process can lead to loss of breast volume, shape, and position. Some women will want breast augmentation and others will choose a breast lift. A breast lift can be a fantastic option to bring the breasts to a perkier more youthful position.
In the U.S. the average cost for a breast lift is $5,012 according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The average cost is just a part of the total price as it doesn’t include anesthesia, operating room fees, or other additional expenses.
A surgeon’s fee for doing breast lift surgery will be dependent on their experience, the type of procedure that is done, and their office location. Some parts of the country are more expensive than others.
Most health insurance will not cover this type of procedure or related complications if it is done for cosmetic reasons not related to a health issue. Many plastic surgeons will offer financing plans to make this available to more people.
Breast augmentations and breast lifts each have their advantages and disadvantages. Breast augmentation is focused on the size and shape of the breasts, but it doesn’t correct drooping breasts. The breast lift focuses on breast position, but not the size of the breasts.
It is not uncommon for a breast lift to be done at the same time as breast augmentation. This brings the breasts into a more youthful position while adding volume through the use of an implant. Having a breast augmentation at the same time as a breast lift is called an augmentation/pexy. This will give you more fullness while it repositions the breasts and nipples.
The decision to make alterations to your breasts is very personal. It is best to consult a board-certified plastic surgeon about these procedures. They will provide peace of mind and a safe outcome. Choosing a plastic surgeon who specializes in breast surgery can lead to much better results.
When considering this type of procedure, it is common to want to know how long the results will last for a breast lift. Most women are able to enjoy the results for 10 to 15 years. Some women will go longer before a revision is needed. Realistic expectations are important when you consider a breast lift, as aging, gravity, and other factors remain present after your procedure. While these things cannot be prevented, there are things you can do to help your results last longer, including:
– Defer the procedure until you are no longer having children or nursing
– Avoid weight fluctuations
– Wear supportive bras
– Maintain a healthy lifestyle
– Don’t smoke
Saggy breasts are most often caused by the skin stretching out. This happens with pregnancy, breastfeeding, significant weight loss, genetics, and the aging process. These cause the breasts to become elongated, droop, and become asymmetrical, with nipples that point down. The breast lift procedure will remove some of the skin, breast tissue, and fat in the breasts to reshape and reposition the breasts. This will normally take about two hours to complete. Repositioning the nipples can also be done at this time to complete the process.
