breast reductionBreast lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to tighten and firm up drooping breasts and restore them to a more youthful position. During the initial consultation process, the breast surgeon will explain all the pros and cons of the procedure, and help the patient make the right choice according to her unique breast anatomy and personal aesthetic needs.

Many experienced surgeons prefer to present breast lift before and after photographs during the first appointment itself. Their first goal is to educate the patient as much as possible about the procedure with the help of before and after photos. Dr. Farah Naz Khan is a board certified female plastic surgeon providing breast lift and various other procedures to patients in Dallas, Texas and surrounding locations.

What are Breast Lift Before and After Pictures?

Before and after pictures in case of breast lift cosmetic surgery refer to a set of images belonging to a previous patient who has undergone the same surgery with satisfactory results. The pictures include images taken prior to the procedure and after the procedure at a stage when the bruising and swelling has disappeared and full effects of breast lift are visible.

The surgeon will ensure that these images are obtained only after receiving the clear consent of the patient. The patient’s identity is generally kept undisclosed. The pictures are presented before new patients in a discreet and appropriate manner. The surgeon’s only goal here is to educate new patients about different aspects of breast lift surgery using these photos. When the patient knows what a breast lift can or cannot do for her, she will be in a better position to make a decision.

Benefits

Some of the patients may wrongly assume that they will achieve breast size enhancement with this procedure.

While some women may need a major correction, including repositioning of downward pointing nipples, others may require a combination of breast lift and implants. In all such situations, breast lift before and after photos can be used effectively to ensure that the patient makes the best choices.

The costs of anesthesia, fee charged by the surgeon, operating room expenses and various other pre- and post-operative expenses will differ from one practice to another. In any case, patients should choose the right breast lift surgeon, while treating the cost aspect as secondary to her decision.

Therefore, patients should frankly discuss the cost aspects with the plastic surgeon at the time of initial consultation.

Length and Complexity

To make a well-informed choice, the patient should have a clear understanding of all the direct and indirect costs associated with breast lift. The length and complexity of the breast lift procedure will influence the overall cost. If the size of the breasts is significantly large or the breasts are sagging heavily, it may require a longer and more complicated cosmetic surgery.

Operating Room 

The breast lift procedure may be performed at a hospital, an ambulatory surgical center or a private surgical suite. The costs and benefits related to each option will differ. In an exceptional situation, if the patient requires overnight stay at the surgical facility, it will lead to an increase of costs. Anesthesia could be performed by an anesthesiologist or a certified anesthetist nurse. Their fee will differ according to their skill and experience.

Post-Surgical Costs

After the breast lift procedure is completed, the patient may require antibiotics, prescription pain medications, and surgical support garment. In some cases, the post-operative visits to the surgeon’s office may also be charged. If any complication arises during recovery, it may involve additional medical tests, x-rays, or medication costs.

Patients should take all major and minor expenses into account while preparing a dollar figure estimate or arranging finances. They should frankly discuss the financial issue with the surgeon so that there are no surprises later on.

Breast Lift Surgery | Plastic Surgery | Dallas TX | Board CertifiedAs a woman ages, her skin will tend to lose elasticity, which can cause the breasts to sag. If the droopiness in the breasts becomes severe, the woman may consider breast lift cosmetic surgery. Breast lift is designed to tighten and firm up the breasts, and restore a more youthful breast appearance.

Khan Plastic Surgery, led by board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan, provides breast lift and various other procedures of the breast, body and face. Dr. Khan will customize the procedure according to the unique anatomical and aesthetic needs of the patient. She provides breast lift to patients in Dallas, Texas and surrounding communities.

 

Candidates

Any woman who is bothered by the appearance of heavily sagging breasts and downward pointing nipples may make a tremendous candidate for breast lift cosmetic surgery. Some women may experience sagging of breasts at a relatively younger age, following pregnancy, or after undergoing a major weight loss.

Among older women, those with a reasonable degree of skin elasticity will achieve better outcomes. In some cases, the surgeon may recommend breast lift in conjunction with breast implants to achieve desirable results.

 

Surgical Techniques

A number of surgical techniques are used to perform breast lift. The surgeon will recommend the most appropriate technique according to the patient’s needs.

 

Standard Technique

The standard breast lift technique involves the use of an anchor-shaped incision. An incision will be created around the circumference of the areola, a second incision vertically down to the base of the breast, and a third incision horizontally alone the breast crease.

Some amount of scarring will occur with this technique, but an expert surgeon will be able to keep it discreet. Significant amount of sagging in the lower half of the breast can be reduced with this technique. Women with smaller breasts usually benefit more from this technique, but it can also be used for women with larger breasts.

 

Doughnut Mastopexy

This technique involves placing the incision around the circumference of the areola. The amount of skin removal in this technique will be lesser than that in the case of a standard breast lift. If the areola is enlarged or misshaped, it can also be corrected along with breast lift.

The doughnut breast lift is less invasive, involves reduced discomfort, and faster recovery. Scarring is also minimal in this technique. However, the technique is more suitable only for women with smaller breasts, and may not be appropriate for women with larger breasts.

 

Lollipop Lift

A lollipop breast lift falls somewhere in-between the standard and doughtnut breast lift techniques. Also called vertical mastopexy, this technique will involve an incision around the areola. A smaller incision will then be placed vertically down to the breast crease.

The technique is effective when the breasts are moderately saggy. Scarring will be relatively lesser as compared to the standard lift procedure. At the same time, the surgeon will have greater flexibility than in the case of doughnut mastopexy to perform the lift and raise the breasts to a more youthful position.

Dr. Khan is a board certified female plastic surgeon who receives patients from Dallas, Texas and nearby areas for breast lift and various other procedures.

 

Recovery

Most patients will experience mild pain and soreness in the incision areas in the first week. The surgeon may prescribe pain medications to keep the patient comfortable. Regular activities can be resumed in about 10 to 14 days in most cases. Vigorous exercises and heavy lifting of weights should be avoided for about one month. This is not the time to try to lift 3 gallons of milk all at once either.
