The shape of the breasts and their position on the chests are important to the overall appearance of the breasts. There are a variety of factors that can cause the breasts to droop which diminishes their shape and their overall appearance. A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, can help to improve the shape of the breasts, lift sagging breasts tissue, and enhance their appearance.
The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Golden and Denver offer breast lift surgery for women who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts and for women who want to rejuvenate the shape and beauty of their breasts.
Factors That Can Lead to Breasts Sagging
Over time, the breasts can begin to sag and lose their shape and natural contours due to the natural effects of aging on the body. For some women, this issue can be mild, for others it can be significant and completely alter the look of the breasts. This natural sagging is known as breast ptosis.
Other factors that can cause the breasts to sag include pregnancy and breastfeeding. Many women find that once they have had children the appearance of their breasts has changed significantly, and they are not able to restore their appearance. Some women may also be born with breasts that naturally hang lower on the chests which may cause them to feel self-conscious about the way they look.
The Benefits of a Breast Lift
A breast lift is designed to lift sagging breasts, eliminate any excess loose breasts tissue, and enhance the overall shape of the breasts. The procedure also focuses on adjusting and repositioning the areolas and nipples for better aesthetic results. A breast lift can provide tighter, firmer, and shapelier breasts that have a more youthful appearance.
A breast lift will not enhance the size of the breasts. It’s a common misconception that an implant will lift the breast. Many women hope for an implant-alone option to avoid the scars incurred with a lift. But implants do not restore an attractive shape to sagging breasts: only a breast lift can do that. Implants alone will successfully fill out deflated breasts that do not drop below the breast creases. Deflated A-cup breasts after pregnancy often fit this scenario for an implant-only solution.
A breast lift with augmentation can be performed for patients who want to enhance the size of their breasts and reduce breast sagging. A breast reduction and lift are also performed for women who want smaller and shapelier breasts. Our team can determine if a breast augmentation with lift or breast lift without implants is the right choice for you.
The Breast Lift recovery
Breast lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. You will be able to return home the same day as your procedure. Some pain, swelling, and bruising is to be expected following surgery. A compression garment may be provided for additional support. You will also be provided with a list of post-operative instructions. It typically takes around one week before patients feel comfortable enough to return to work. Physically demanding activities such as exercise should be avoided for a month or so.
The Cost of Breast Lift Surgery
The cost of a breast lift can range between $9,000 – $10,500. This includes surgeon’s fee, anesthesia with a board-certified anesthesiologist, and all pre and post op appointments. The Center for Cosmetic Surgery offers financing options with CareCredit and Prosper Healthcare Lending to help patients pay for their breast lift.
