While breast augmentation is the most common plastic surgery procedure among women looking to revitalize the appearance of their chest, breast enhancement with breast implants can only affect the size and shape of the breasts rather than their angle or projection.
A range of factors can change the appearance of the breasts including breastfeeding, weight loss, and aging. When breast skin has lost elasticity and the breasts have drooped below the breast crease and the nipples have drifted downwards as well, a cosmetic surgery known as a breast lift will be required to help correct this situation. Our breast lift specialist, Dr. Kiran Gill, often performs breast lift surgery in tandem with other cosmetic procedures such as breast augmentation or breast reduction to achieve comprehensive results and the youthful, perky breast shape desired by most women.
If you are self-conscious about sagging or drooping breasts, breast lift surgery may be the ideal treatment for your goals. Our surgeons are considered by patients and peers alike as among the top breast lift surgeons in Naples and Fort Meyers. This procedure is ideal for recreating the appearance of shapely, full breasts without changing your cup size.
Although gravity and the aging process are inevitable and to be blamed for breast sagging or drooping breasts, a breast lift can restore the breasts to the once youthful position and shape of a woman’s silhouette.
Benefits of this procedure include:
There are several different types of breast lifts that combine different types of incisions with different reshaping techniques. The type of mastopexy or breast lift will be dependent on the amount and quality of the skin and the position of the nipple-areola complex.
There are three types of mastopexy incisions:
The type of incisions will depend on the amount of skin to be removed. In general, the larger the lift, the greater number of incisions. Our breast lift surgeons use precise surgical techniques that minimize incisions and reshape the underlying breast tissue to a more youthful position.
Your surgeon will use the first session to examine you physically, review your medical and cosmetic history, and create a plan of action customized to your aesthetic tastes, lifestyle, and unique anatomy. Dr. Gill will answer in-depth any questions you have regarding your treatment, covering topics such as the risks and advantages of a breast lift; and what you can expect from your recovery and downtime.
A breast lift is typically an outpatient surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will use one of several techniques to perform this procedure, depending on how much sagging or drooping has occurred. Different techniques involve making incisions in other areas of the breast, such as around the areola or along the breast crease.
Our surgeons pride themselves on delivering among the best breast lift surgery Naples, FL has to offer and as always, they and the rest of our team welcome questions to ensure that all patient questions and concerns are thoroughly addressed.
Immediately following breast lift surgery, you will be placed in a surgical bra to help reduce swelling.1 You’ll then transition to a support bra to wear throughout the duration of your recovery. Most patients feel comfortable returning to work after one week. Avoid heavy lifting and strenuous physical activity for three weeks. Breast lift results are typically visible 6 to 12 weeks following surgery.
The exact cost of breast lift surgery depends on a myriad of factors, but ballpark estimates are available. A breast lift can range in price from $5,000 to $10,000. The cost will go up if you elect to get implants at the same time as your breast lift. A personal consultation with Dr. Gill to examine your unique anatomy will give a better estimate for your surgery.
Many patients choose to combine breast lift surgery with other procedures such as breast augmentation with implants or breast reduction. Should you desire more comprehensive body sculpting in addition to your new breasts, you can consider mommy makeover surgery which can include a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a variety of other surgical and non-surgical procedures.
While every woman is different, breast lift surgery should not affect your ability to breastfeed.2
