What is Breast Lift Surgery?
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, elevates and reshapes the breasts and nipples by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. New statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show breast lifts have increased 70% since 2000, outpacing breast augmentations 2-to-1.
What Does a Breast Lift Achieve?
A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift can reduce this as well.
What Doesn’t a Breast Lift Achieve?
Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast. If you would like your breasts to look fuller, consider a combined breast lift and breast augmentation surgery. If you would like smaller breasts, consider combining your breast lift with a breast reduction.
Who Is a Candidate for a Breast Lift?
A typical breast lift candidate is a woman whose breasts have changed over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:
- Weight fluctuations
What Is Breast Lift Recovery Like?
Many women can return to work after a week or 2 and resume their normal exercise routines after 4 to 6 weeks. However, your recovery time may vary depending on how complex your procedure is.
How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost?
The cost of a breast lift varies greatly depending on the complexity of the procedure, whether any other breast enhancement procedures are included, and your surgeon’s level of expertise. The best way to determine your pricing is to visit us for a personal, private consultation with Dr. Park.
