The breast lift is very appealing for women who have droopy,
sagging or uneven breasts. Breast lifts also improve the
appearance of nipples that project outward and unevenly.
Breast lifts are most often performed to improve ptosis which
is the medical term for sagging breasts. In fact, the breast
lift may be the more appropriate procedure for women who
initially thought that the breast augmentation was the only
option to improve their appearance. The breast lift may be
combined with a breast augmentation or breast reduction to
provide the most flattering results for some breast enhancement
Dr. Blau will enlighten you about the breast lift during
a complimentary consultation with him. A personal consultation
is often the only means to learn if the breast lift procedure
applies to your particular situation. It is important to
note that Dr. Blau is among a select number of board certified
plastic surgeons who can adequately perform the breast augmentation
breast lift combination procedure at the same time. This
combination is most difficult without an experienced eye
for positioning of the breasts and nipples. Dr. Blau has
over twenty years of board certified plastic surgery experience
performing breast augmentation breast lift combinations on
women of every shape and size.
As with all cosmetic surgery, results will be rewarding if expectations are realistic. As with any surgery, there are some risks which Dr. Blau will discuss with you.
Breast Lift Technique:
Dr. Blau uses techniques to create
an optimal appearance with the least conspicuous scar. During
the breast lift procedure, a small incision will be made
around the edge of the areola, excess skin will be trimmed
away, the breast may be remodeled, nipple repositioned to
meet new requirements, and the incision will be sutured in
place. When a breast augmentation breast lift combination
is performed, Dr. Blau will place the breast implants through
the nipple incision first, then perform the breast lift procedure.
He will take delicate care to position the nipple in an approximated
higher initial position to allow for the dropping of the
breasts that naturally occurs after a breast augmentation
procedure over time. In the case of a breast reduction breast
lift combination, Dr. Blau may use liposuction to remove
fatty breast tissue through the nipple incision and then
trim away excess skin to accommodate for breast lift requirements
before closing the incision. Some women pursue the breast
lift after an initial breast surgery. In this case, Dr. Blau
can usually use the same incision to perform the breast lift.
Dr. Blau has performed 100ís of breast lift procedures.
Breast Lift Before and After Photos:
It may be difficult
to discern the results of a breast lift when performed in
combination with another breast surgery procedure at first
glance. Yet, Dr. Blau has many before and after breast lift
photos to help women distinguish between the results of breast
lift combinations. It is often interesting to compare results
of patients that did not undergo the breast lift vs. patients
that have. To view photos, click
Breast Lift Testimonials:
Dr Blau has videos that provide
patient testimonials and demonstrate surgery so you can gather
a greater understanding of breast surgery. In fact, you can
have access to patients who have undergone the breast lift
procedure to help identify with the type of results you may
expect to achieve.
Breast Lift Costs:
Breast lift costs will be reviewed by
Dr. Blau at the time of your complimentary consultation.
Plastic surgery related costs associated with the breast
lift are comprised of surgical facility fees, anesthesia
fees, and plastic surgeon fees. Anesthesia and facility fees
will not be duplicated when both a breast lift and breast
augmentation or breast lift and breast reduction is performed
at the same time. In some cases of breast reduction breast
lift combinations, your insurance may cover a portion or
all of the costs associated with the procedure. Dr. Blau
will help prepare paperwork to receive preapproval from insurance
companies when a medical necessity for a breast reduction
is identified in the treatment plan.
