A breast lift is a plastic surgery procedure that elevates and firms breasts by removing excess skin and tightening saggy tissue to reshape breast contour. This option is ideal for people who are happy with their cup size, but, due to loss of elasticity or factors like weight loss and breast feeding, would like to raise and firm their breasts for a more youthful contour.
If your breasts are a reasonable size but lack substance or shape, then you could be a good candidate for a breast lift. Lifts are not recommended for larger cup sizes, since the results may not last as long.
Depending on the kind of breast lift you choose, the procedure will require either multiple incisions around the areola for a full lift or just one incision for a modified lift. Your surgeon will remove the excess skin and then shift the nipple and areola to a higher position. You will be stiff and sore for a few days, and to help healing you’ll need to wear a position supporting bra during initial recovery.
Average Cost of a Breast Lift: $4,414
How Long Does a Breast Lift Take?
1-3 hours, but it can vary depending on the kind of surgery and the patient.
Average Recovery Time
It takes about a month to return to normal physical activities. You can return to work after the first week if you do not have a rigorous job.
