Over the years, everything from weight changes to hormonal fluctuations can impact the appearance of your breasts, and there may come a point when you want to make some drastic changes to your bustline. The breast lift is a safe and effective procedure that gives us the ability to alter the positioning and placement of the breasts to create a perkier and more symmetrical appearance. This procedure is an ideal option for women who would like to boost their confidence as well as their self-image.
A Look at Breast Lifts
Studies continue to show us that breast lifts are more popular than ever, and hundreds of thousands of patients are having this procedure carried out every single year. The primary goal of a breast lift is to alter the position of the breasts so that they are symmetrical and are lifted to create a more natural balance. In some cases, many patients also have this surgery combined with additional treatments, such as breast augmentation or breast reduction.
This surgery is a great option for women who are no longer happy with the placement of their breasts due to sagging tissue or a loss of subcutaneous fat. The average patient will fully recover from their mastopexy within a matter of weeks, and the results should last for years with the proper aftercare.
Breast Augmentation With Lift
If you would like to increase the size of your breasts as well as alter/lift their position, then you might want to consider a breast lift with breast implants. By combining these two procedures, you won’t have to worry about going through two recoveries, and it is much easier to carry out a breast augmentation after we have made the incisions for a lift. Once the anesthetic has been administered and the breasts have been repositioned, we can insert silicone or saline implants into the breasts to make them larger. While a traditional lift could make the breasts seem fuller, you should consider having implants if you would like to increase your cup size.
Breast Lift and Reduction
Many different factors impact the size of your breasts, and that includes your genetics, childbirth, breastfeeding, and weight changes. If the size of your breasts is negatively impacting your self-image or quality of life, then a breast reduction could be an option. During a lift and reduction, Dr. Jhonny Salomon will remove excess fat as well as some of the skin and glandular tissue. These two operations will allow us to fully reposition the breasts and make them more proportionate to the rest of your body.
Breast Lift Cost
If you have decided that you would like to have a breast lift procedure performed, then you have most likely wondered what the total cost of the operation is going to be. We understand that these procedures can be major investments, and that is why we go to great lengths to make all of our services and treatments as affordable as possible without ever compromising safety, results and the utmost professionalism. We work with several financing companies for those who need it. We will assist you in achieving the body you have always wanted.
Breast Lift Steps
Even though every procedure is slightly different, we usually follow the same few steps when carrying out a breast lift Miami. When the patient arrives at our surgical center, they will be greeted by our nurse taken to a private room where our members can help them prepare for surgery. We suggest that all of our patients arrive in comfortable clothing and have a loved one ready to take them home following their surgical procedure. Once you have been prepped, the treatment site will be marked and an anesthetic will be administered. The breast lift procedure is performed under general anesthesia which puts you completely to sleep.
After the anesthetic has been administered, Dr Jhonny Salomon will then make a series of incisions around the areolas in order to reshape the breasts. The following steps are going to be determined by exactly what the patient would like to accomplish. For most breast lifts, the underlying fat is gently repositioned while the areolas are moved up slightly. We can also remove excess skin to compensate for the lack of elasticity. Once the tissue has been contoured and the areolas have been repositioned, the incisions are sutured closed and a compression garment is put in place.
Your Breast Lift Recovery
Another concern that many people have is what the recovery is going to be like following a breast lift surgery. Our patients return home on the same days as this operation, but you must have a loved one ready to drive you. At home, you should plan on resting in bed for at least a few days. We will provide you with a comprehensive pain management plan that is going to reduce your discomfort while you recover.
You must avoid physically strenuous activities immediately following your surgeryand heavy lifting for 2-3 weeks. We will schedule follow up appointments with Dr. Jhonny Salomon and he will monitor your progress. Additionally, we will have you get lymphatic drainage massages to assist with any bruising or swelling and make the recovery much quicker.
With modern surgical tools and cutting-edge techniques, this procedure can be carried out with a variety of incision techniques – the exact technique that will be used will depend on the individual patient’s breast tissue, the necessary amount of excess skin that will be removed and the patient’s personal goals. Dr. Jhonny Salomon will give you his recommendations during your initial consult.
