About Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery is a cosmetic treatment that lifts and reshapes the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to create a firmer, younger appearance. This body contouring surgery is great for women who have lost breast shape and volume and who have breast sag due to breastfeeding, weight loss, aging, or gravity. Huge advancements in breast lift surgery have made this surgical procedure so successful that new stats from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show an approximate 70% increase in demand since 2000. Dr. Scott Kasden, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Southlake, TX, performs breast lift surgery using advanced techniques for beautiful results. By integrating the most state-of-the-art methods, Dr. Kasden can decide on the correct technique according to the level of sag present, as well as your unique goals.

Ideal Candidates

You may visit the plastic surgery practice of Scott E. Kasden, M.D. believing you are a candidate for fuller breasts with breast implants; however, after a physical exam, you may realize that a breast lift is a better choice. This is dependent on the level of sag that is present. Breasts that point downward in most cases need a lift to correct skin irregularities and lift the breasts to a higher position. If your nipples point downward and your breasts appear stretched, a cosmetic lift can improve their appearance. If you are considering a breast lift, you should be good overall health and at a stable weight.

Surgical Technique

Breast lift surgery takes approximately 2 – 4 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. The timeframe of this procedure depends on the complexity of breast ptosis (sagging). The method used for cosmetic breast lift surgery generally falls under two categories — these are based on the size and location needed for the incision. The anchor technique (inverted-T) and the vertical incisions are the most commonly used types. After making the incision, loose skin is removed along with any breast tissue and fat that is not needed. The remaining skin is then pulled tight and the breasts are lifted so they look healthy. In many cases, the size of the areola can be decreased to match the new breast. 

What To Expect

The recovery for breast lift surgery is usually longer than breast augmentation. After surgery, you will be fitted with a support bra to minimize swelling. A small tube may be placed near the incision site to assist with excess draining, which can sometimes occur after a surgery of this nature. The post-surgical swelling should diminish within 3 – 5 days. Dr. Kasden or a member of his team will provide detailed, at-home incision care instructions to help your healing process. Results following a surgical breast lift are most noticeable after several months as your newly shaped breasts take their new position on your chest wall. The breasts will look and feel natural, and you will feel younger, prettier, and in sync with your frame.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a breast lift cost?
In your initial consultation, Dr. Kasden will listen to your needs and aesthetic goals before developing your unique treatment plan. After that, he can better estimate your costs. When done well, a breast lift can significantly improve your appearance, so it's important to focus on having an experienced surgeon with extensive training, like Dr. Kasden, over costs. To help make cosmetic surgery easier to afford, the plastic surgery practice of Scott E. Kasden, M.D. can help you find low-interest medical financing.

Do I need a breast lift or breast implants?
Whether you should get a breast lift, an augmentation with implants or both will depend on your unique concerns and goals. In many patients, a breast lift can improve the shape and fullness of the breasts without implants. Dr. Kasden will assess your physical condition and listen to your goals in your consultation, then decide whether you should get a lift, implants, or a breast augmentation with a lift.

Will my nipples be moved?
In most cases, the nipple-areola complex will be shifted up during the breast lift. If your areolas are overly large or stretched, Dr. Kasden can include an areola reduction during your surgery. This can be discussed during your consultation so he can decide on the best incision pattern and technique to use during your breast lift.

How long will my results last?
With proper care after surgery, your results should last for many years. Your breasts will continue to age normally so you may begin to see sagging and loose skin over time. Factors like significant weight gain or loss can alter your results, so it's best to maintain a stable weight after your breast lift. Pregnancy or breastfeeding after a breast lift can also affect your results, which is why Dr. Kasden recommends patients wait until they are done having children to get a breast lift.

Can a breast lift fix asymmetry?
A lift can improve asymmetry in your breasts if they are different in size, firmness, or degree of sagging. Dr. Kasden will assess the physical condition and appearance of your breasts during your consultation and discuss how a breast lift can help you. During your surgery, he will shape the tissue so your breasts are equal in size and position for better symmetry.
