Breast lift surgery is generally recommended for patients who have adequate volume (fullness) but whose breasts have dropped due to aging, pregnancy or breast feeding. As the breasts naturally age there is a tendency for the breast mound and nipple to droop. Minimal sagging of the breast tissues may look natural and aesthetically pleasing; however, when the breast and nipple fall below the inframammary crease (the natural junction between the breast and tummy) then the beauty of the breast shape can be compromised. A lift can reverse these undesirable changes, including:
- drooping of the breast mound that now rests on your tummy.
- sagging of the nipple and areola such that they point at your feet.
- lateralization of the breast mound resulting in a tilting of the breast mounds into the armpits with simultaneous loss of inner breast mound fullness.
- loss of the medial cleavage.
- loss of the upper pole breast fullness.
- asymmetry in the breast mound shape, size, and positioning.
- enlargement of the areola diameter
- asymmetry in the areola shape and positioning.
How Much Does Surgery Cost?
The price of a breast lift varies depending on the level of sagging and whether or not implants are used. As such, the cost varies between $7,000 to $8,000 and a breast lift with implants ranges from $8,000 to $12,000.
