Breast Lift Surgeon in Dallas, TX
Breast lift procedures can provide desired results for many patients. Inevitably over time breasts will lose their youthful shape and firmness. This can be due to breastfeeding, weight changes, genetics or just gravity. When restoring the characteristics of youthful breasts, the goal is to leave the fewest scars possible.
However, when the skin has become overstretched it is impossible to correct without any scars. The best candidates for breast lift surgery are women who are happy with their breast size (or wouldn’t mind being a little smaller) but are unhappy with the shape or droop of their breasts.
Breast Lift Consultation
During your consultation, Dr. Hubbard will explain to you if a breast lift is needed and where the resulting scar will be. The more lifting that is required, the larger the scar will have to be. For minor breast lifts, the scar will be limited to the edge of the areola. For medium breast lifts the scar will be around the areola and a vertical line from the areola to the fold below the breast (aka lollypop incision). For more significant lifts, a scar running horizontally in the fold below the breast is necessary.
Breast Lift Care & Recovery
The breast lift procedure takes 2 hours and is performed with general anesthesia. No drains are used, and no sutures need to be removed. You will go home the day of your surgery, but you will need someone to handle the driving. Showering is usually allowed the day after surgery. You will need to wear a non-underwire sports bra all the time for the first 1 to 2 weeks. Within about 7 to 10 days, most women can return to light activity, including work; more strenuous exercise may be resumed after about a month.
The Final Result
While you will likely have some minor bruising and swelling for the first week after surgery, it’s immediately rewarding to see your more youthful, firm and perky breasts. Scars on the breast fade over time and are very rarely a concern or in need of revision. Many of our patients express increased self-confidence, in addition to being thrilled with their enhanced breasts.
During your consultation, Dr. Hubbard will discuss with you your goals and expectations and determine if this is the right procedure for you.
Cost Components in Breast Lift
A breast lift is usually performed as elective surgery, and the cost may not be covered under the patient’s health insurance plan. Therefore, it becomes important to learn about the cost aspects associated with this procedure. The cost of breast lift may vary from one cosmetic surgeon to another, depending on the location of their practice.
The cost of the procedure in Dallas, Plano, and Frisco may be different from the cost of the same procedure in, say, Orange County, CA. The variation may occur because the cost of living may differ in the two regions, which may impact the average costs of all kinds of products and services, including plastic surgery services. » Learn more about breast lift costs
