If your breasts have started to significantly sag and your nipples have begun to point downwards, you may be a candidate for a breast lift. A breast lift can help to restore a more youthful and perky shape to the breasts, and is a good option for women whose breasts have sagged due to age, childbirth, breastfeeding, weight loss, or any other reason.
If you are interested in a breast lift with or without implants, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Ben Brown and Dr. Ashley Chandler at Restore Plastic Surgery in Pensacola by calling 850-500-7527 today. Our office in Pensacola welcomes patients from throughout Florida, nearby Mobile, Alabama, and across the nation.
What Is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is a surgical procedure designed to lift the breasts into a more youthful position. It is appropriate for women who have breasts that sag far enough that you can’t see the bottom of them when you raise your arms.
During a breast lift, the nipples are repositioned to face forward rather than down and excess skin and tissue are removed. The breasts are reshaped into a more attractive position that you decide on with your surgeon beforehand. Dr. Brown and Dr. Chandler believe strongly in thorough preparations and meticulous execution to ensure the best result possible, and they will make sure that you know exactly what kind of result to expect so that you’ll be satisfied.
Benefits of a Breast Lift
A breast lift has many benefits, including:
- More attractive, youthful looking breasts
- Easier to find bras that fit well
- Look better in your clothes
- Avoid chafing and irritation from breasts drooping over the abdomen
- Avoid “boob sweat” in warm weather
A breast lift will result in more scarring than a breast augmentation alone, but the majority of patients find that the benefits and results are well worth it. Breast lift scars should fade over time to become very faint and barely noticeable, and there are laser treatments available as well to help fade them more quickly.
Breast Lift with Breast Augmentation
A breast lift performed on its own may result in slightly smaller breasts, as excess tissue needs to be removed so that the breasts can be lifted. If you want bigger breasts or if you want to keep your previous size, a breast lift with breast implants may be a good choice.
A combination breast lift with breast augmentation can give you lifted breasts that are also larger and fuller. If you don't want to be that much bigger but do want more upper pole fullness or cleavage, we can use smaller implants to give you a very natural look close to your previous size.
Breast Lift Candidates
You may be a good candidate for a breast lift if:
- You are bothered by your breasts that are sagging significantly
- You are in good general health
- You do not smoke, or are willing to quit
- You do not plan to get pregnant or breastfeed again in the near future
Modern techniques allow the milk glands to be preserved after a breast lift, but it is still better to wait until after you’re done having children. Pregnancy and childbirth can cause changes in the shape and size of the breasts, which may result in you needing a revision surgery.
The Cost of a Breast Lift
The cost of your breast lift procedure depends on the type of lift you will get and the severity of breast drooping. These surgical fees include our board-certified plastic surgeons’ cost as well as expenses for the surgical facility, anesthesia, and more. Dr. Ben Brown or Dr. Ashley Chandler will give you a comprehensive quote during your consultation, where you’ll discuss your goals for your breasts and determine the best technique and procedure to reach your desired results.
