Youthful breasts are a beautiful feminine feature, looking plump, round, and sitting high on the chest wall. Unfortunately, age, genetics, and the physical changes to the body from pregnancy and breastfeeding can dramatically change the firmness and structure of the skin and breast tissue.
It is common for women to experience sagging, loss of natural firmness and volume, and nipple changes. A custom breast lift is performed to restore the firm, lifted, and round appearance of youthful breasts.
Breast Augmentation or Breast Lift?
Restoring flattened breasts that have lost volume with implants may not be an ideal, long-term solution. When the chest skin has stretched, the added weight of the implant may increase the looseness of the skin, leading to the breasts sagging even more. In many cases, either a breast lift performed on its own or a breast lift with augmentation results in the best, most beautiful, long-lasting enhancement. What’s right for you? Arrange a private consultation at Banerji Plastic Surgery to determine the best approach for you.
Breast Lift Surgery What Are the Options?
There are different styles of lifts with varying incision patterns. The type of incisions used in your breast lift reflects the amount of breast restoration required for the individual.
A periareolar lift, or “Benelli” lift, involves placing a circular incision around the areola. As the incisions are in darker-hued tissue, visible scarring is minimal. This approach is appropriate for women with moderate breast sagging.
The “lollipop” incision pattern may be needed to restore breast firmness, shape, and lift. The name refers to the pattern shape, with an incision around the areola, with a small vertical incision traveling from the lower areola down the center of the lower breast.
For more extreme sagging, an anchor lift may be ideal. The incisions are around the areola, down the lower center of the breast mound, and in the natural breast crease. This incision pattern allows for total breast mound reshaping, firming, and lifting.
Lovely, Lifted Breasts with a Custom Breast Lift
If you want to restore the look of youthful breasts, a breast lift or breast lift with augmentation can dramatically enhance your figure. This procedure is always customized for the individual, as every woman has unique issues that need correction. The nipple structure is often relocated to the center of the reshaped breast mound to create the most beautiful result. In some cases, the nipple size is reduced to create a balanced look.
Your Customized Breast Lift Surgery What to Expect?
A breast lift is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. After your surgery, your newly-reshaped breasts will be protected with bandages and a special compression garment to speed healing. To ensure your comfort, you will be prescribed pain medication, which is typically only needed for the first few days. You will need to sleep on your back until the incisions are healed and avoid any physical motion that could put stress on the incisions. Most women feel well enough to return to work or regular activities in about a week but must avoid vigorous exercise for four to six weeks.
Volume + Lift for Total Breast Rejuvenation
Breast augmentation combined with a lift may be the best approach for women who have experienced breast volume loss along with sagging. At Banerji Plastic Surgery, we perform a breast lift and augmentation with silicone or saline implants or with natural fat grafting to subtly enhance volume with your own natural fat cells.
What does a breast lift cost?
The cost can vary based on the type of lift and the extent of the procedure. The cost can vary from $5000 to $8,500, including anesthesia and facility charges.
