If you’re pleased with the size of your breasts, but they’ve lost their youthful “perkiness,” breast lift surgery may be the perfect solution for you. Dr. Carey Nease and his professional staff at Nease Cosmetic Surgery provide breast lift surgery to patients in Scottsboro, Ft. Payne, Huntsville, and the nearby areas in northern Alabama.
What is a Breast Lift?
Breast lift surgery is also called mastopexy, and the purpose is to raise the breast up, remove excess skin, and tighten the tissue surrounding the breast so it supports the newly reshaped, uplifted breast.
Internal breast tissue is often also reshaped, giving the breasts a firmer, more raised appearance.
How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost in North Alabama and Huntsville area?
In most cases, a breast lift without implants will run somewhere between $5,000 and $7,000 at Nease Cosmetic Surgery. If you will be having implants put in place, the average cost ranges from $6,500 to $8,500. Breast lift costs fluctuate, largely depending on whether or not implants are to be inserted. Costs for your specific situation will be determined during your initial consultation and the doctor will be able to give you a more exact amount.
Insurance companies seldom cover the cost of purely cosmetic surgeries and procedures. It’s important to check with your insurance provider to find out which procedures they do or do not consider eligible for coverage. At Nease Cosmetic Surgery, we try to keep patient procedures as affordable as possible. We’re happy to offer complimentary consultations as well as payment options, including cash, major credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What Are the Benefits of a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is designed to lift your breasts and restore them to the forward-facing position of younger days. Patients who undergo breast lift surgery are most often thrilled with their newly positioned breasts. Other common benefits include:
- Increased cup size and breast volume
- Repositioning breasts to a higher place on the chest
- Removal of excess skin created by sagging breasts
- Improved size or position of the areolas
- Improved and enhanced overall symmetry and breast contours
Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?
If you’re a healthy adult woman and your nipples point downward, or your breasts can be described as saggy or droopy, chances are you’re a good candidate for breast lift surgery. Most ideal candidates are non-smokers and are able to maintain their weight at a healthy, stable level.
What is Breast Lift Recovery Like?
There will likely be pain and some soreness following a breast lift, as your breasts will be bruised and swollen for a couple of weeks. You’ll want to avoid lifting, bending or straining and it’s best to sleep on your side or back so as not to put pressure on the breasts during the night.
You may be asked to wear a surgical bra for support around the clock for a few days, after which time you can switch to a softer support bra for several weeks. For best results during recovery, your surgeon will provide you with specific post-op instructions which should be followed closely.
