What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that addresses sagging or drooping breasts. Over time, factors such as aging, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and genetics can lead to a loss of breast firmness and shape. A breast lift involves repositioning and reshaping the breast tissue, removing excess skin, and lifting the breasts to a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing position. This procedure can also include an areola lift or reduction to enhance symmetry and achieve a balanced breast appearance. Dr. Michael Baumholtz employs his expertise to customize each breast lift, tailoring the technique to individual concerns and goals. This results in a rejuvenated chest and a more confident, uplifted self-image.

The Breast Lift Procedure What to Expect

During a breast lift procedure at Baumholtz Plastic Surgery, the process typically begins with the administration of anesthesia to guarantee comfort throughout the surgery. Once you are comfortably sedated, Dr. Baumholtz carefully makes incisions based on the pre-discussed treatment plan, including an anchor-shaped incision, a lollipop incision, or a periareolar incision. These incisions allow him to access the underlying breast tissue and remove excess skin.

The next step involves reshaping the breast tissue to achieve the desired lift and contour. Dr. Baumholtz may reposition the areolas to ensure symmetry and harmony with the rejuvenated breast shape. Finally, the skin is tightened and sutured to create a more youthful and lifted appearance. The length of the process varies based on the complexity of the surgery and the techniques employed, but it generally takes a few hours.

Combining Breast Lift with Other Procedures

The beauty of breast lift surgery lies in its versatility. If you desire more than just a little pick-me-up, consider combining it with other procedures. For instance, you can add volume by combining mastopexy (breast lift) with breast augmentation using implants for fuller results. If you are interested in more than one procedure, Dr. Baumholtz recommends discussing this during your consultation so we can tailor a customized approach to your goals.

What risks are associated with breast lift surgery?

Like any surgical procedure, breast lift surgery carries inherent risks and potential complications. These may include bleeding, infection, scarring, changes in sensation or numbness in the nipples and breast tissue, poor wound healing, and asymmetry or unevenness in the size or shape of the breasts. It's essential to discuss these risks thoroughly with Dr. Baumholtz during your consultation. He will guide you through the steps taken to minimize these risks and provide detailed explanations of the postoperative care and recovery process. Attending all scheduled follow-up appointments and promptly communicating any concerns or complications to your plastic surgeon can significantly contribute to a smooth and successful recovery.

How does Dr. Baumholtz minimize scarring during breast lift surgery?

Minimizing scarring in breast lift surgery involves an artistic approach to reshaping breast tissue and selecting techniques that effectively reduce the visibility of scars. Breast lift scars, while more noticeable than those from implant-only surgeries, are influenced by your genetic predisposition. Throughout the entire process—from pre-surgery consultations to the procedure itself and post-surgery—Dr. Baumholtz collaborates with you. Together, you will discuss the placement of scars, assess the likelihood of undesired scarring, and establish strategies to minimize the final appearance of scars. This personalized approach ensures a comprehensive understanding of the scarring process and addresses your specific concerns.

What is the average cost of a breast lift in San Antonio, Texas?

The average cost of a breast lift in San Antonio, Texas, ranges from $8,000 to $12,000 plus. This price typically includes surgeon fees, anesthesia fees, and facility costs. However, it’s important to note that prices vary depending on factors such as the surgeon’s experience and the complexity of the procedure. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) provides more pricing information.

How many cup sizes do you lose with a breast lift?

Undergoing a breast lift procedure will generally lead to a reduction in breast size. Whether this results in a change in cup size is influenced by how you wear your bra. In cases where a breast lift is performed, an implant may be considered to compensate for any lost volume or to enhance the shape of the upper breast area. The primary goal of a breast lift is to reshape and reposition sagging breasts. While most women may experience minor reductions in size due to the removal of excess skin during surgery, the extent of this change varies based on individual circumstances and the specific techniques employed by the plastic surgeon.

What are the disadvantages of a breast lift?

A breast lift, or mastopexy, comes with certain considerations. One factor is the potential for scarring around incision sites, which is typically permanent but tends to fade over time. As with any surgical procedure, there are inherent risks related to anesthesia and the potential for infection. Some individuals may experience temporary changes or loss in nipple sensation, although this often resolves over time. Additionally, there is a possibility of post-surgery breast asymmetry, though Dr. Baumholtz strives for optimal symmetry during the procedure. In certain cases, there may be a need for revision surgeries, either due to complications or if the desired results are not fully achieved initially. It's essential to discuss these aspects openly with Dr. Baumholtz during your consultation, ensuring a comprehensive understanding and informed decision-making process tailored to your unique circumstances.
