Your breasts can sag due to pregnancy, weight loss, or the effects of age and gravity. A breast lift removes loose skin and lifts your breasts back to a more youthful position. While a breast augmentation can add volume, only a breast lift can correct significant sagging or drooping.
What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift removes excess skin and raises your breasts to a natural, attractive position. Your El Paso cosmetic surgeon will use incisions under the breasts to remove your excess skin. After lifting and reshaping your breasts, your surgeon may resize and reposition your areola, so its size and position match your breasts. A breast lift can be performed as part of a breast augmentation or reduction.
If you have sagging or drooping breasts, you might be a good candidate for a breast lift. Good candidates have no serious health problems, do not smoke, and have some or all of these concerns:
Breasts that have lost their shape and started to droop
Areolas that point downward instead of outward
Stretched, loose breast skin
Uneven or asymmetrical sagging
Only your surgeon can determine for sure whether you are a good candidate.
Breast Lift, Augmentation, or Reduction?
You may find that your breasts have lost size and volume in addition to sagging. This can happen due to aging but often occurs after pregnancy or weight loss. If you have this problem, you might benefit from a breast augmentation with a breast lift. This will improve the size and shape of your breasts while ensuring they rest in a lifted position that highlights their fullness.
You may also find yourself with large, sagging breasts that you wish were smaller. Your surgeon can perform a breast reduction with a breast lift. A breast reduction often requires a lift to achieve a pleasing result after removing excess fat and breast tissue.
Pricing for cosmetic surgery procedures varies widely between locations and between different providers. At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, breast lift costs begin at about $6500. Many factors may affect this cost, so we recommend a consultation to get an accurate estimate and discuss your procedure.
What is Recovery Like From a Breast Lift?
Soreness and swelling may occur within the first few days. Most people can return to work and other light activities within a week to ten days. You can resume most activities after four to six weeks, although you should always follow your surgeon’s instructions.
I had breast augmentation done in November, it’s been 3 months, and I am loving the results. Dr. Sozer did an amazing job and the staff was very friendly.
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
