OVERVIEW

What Is Breast Lift?

Have pregnancies, breast feeding, aging or weight fluctuations left you with breasts that are droopy and detracting from an otherwise youthful appearance. Many women feel less confident because their sagging breasts look unattractive when not supported by a good bra. Mastopexy, or breast lift is a surgical procedure that corrects this condition, lifting and reshaping the breasts to a more youthful breast appearance.

Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, not only rejuvenates a woman’s physical appearance but also enhances her self-esteem. Some women elect to combine breast lift with breast augmentation procedure to further restore fullness and volume to their breasts or increase the size of their breasts.  You may also be a good candidate for a combination procedure with breast implants with mastopexy if you desire to restore the volume and fullness of your breasts and regain their youthful look.

Dr. Bachilo at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa will customize a treatment plan to address your individualized problems and goals, to deliver you long-lasting natural-looking results that will improve not only your appearance but also boost your self-confidence.

 

CONSULTATION

What to Expect During Breast Lift Consultation?

Dr. Bachilo will review your medical history and examine your breasts shape, volume, position on the chest and skin quality. She will discuss your concerns and recommend procedures that will best meet your desired look. Every patient is different and Dr. Bachilo will design a personalized surgical treatment plan to address your specific goals. Many of our patients choose to complement the breast lift procedure with other treatments to provide for a more comprehensive makeover. Ask Dr. Bachilo if you are a candidate for other procedures at the time of your breast lift.

In preparation for your elective cosmetic surgery you will be asked to refrain from tobacco products and all nicotine containing products as well as to stop taking certain medications.

PROCEDURE

How Is Breast Lift Procedure Performed?

The breast lift is performed in an outpatient surgery center or a hospital utilizing general anesthesia to ensure maximum comfort and safety for our patients. Additionally, local anesthetic if often used to further alleviate any potential discomfort after the surgery.

The surgery may take from two to five hours depending on your anatomy and the extent of your procedure. Breast tissue is lifted to a higher position on the chest wall during the mastopexy procedure. The nipple is also repositioned to a new higher position to match the new breast. Breast tissue is re-sculpted to a more attractive shape and any excess skin is trimmed away. Degree of scarring varies between individuals as every patient is unique.

LIFT TYPES

What Are the Different Types of Breast Lift?

There are several different kinds of breast lift depending on the patient’s needs, but most common are: periareolar mastopexy, vertical mastopexy and traditional or full scar mastopexy.

Periareolar Mastopexy

also referred to as circumareolar lift or periareolar lift is designed for women who have small amount of breast sagging and only need a small lift. The incision is well hidden at the edge of breast and areola during this procedure. Incision can be done all the way around the areola as a “donut patter” which also allows for areola size reduction. As an alternative, incision can be done only on the upper half of the areola as a “crescent pattern” and the lifting of the nipple is achieved in this way, but areola staying the same size.

Vertical Lift

or vertical mastopexy, also called a short scar mastopexy is ideal for women with more sagging in their breasts and also have relatively wide breasts. The scar during this procedure is around the areola and vertically from areola to breast fold. This type of scar is sometimes referred to as a “lollipop incision”. Vertical lift allows for removal of more saggy skin and achieves a perkier more sculpted breast.

Traditional Lift

or full scar mastopexy is ideal for women that have significant breast deflation and drooping and need substantial nipple lift and skin reduction. The scars during this lift are around areola, up and down from areola to the breast fold and at the breast fold. This procedure permits for the best lift and remolding of the breasts, with the trade of for longer scars.

RECOVERY

What to Expect During Breast Lift Recovery?

Please make arrangements to have someone drive you home after your surgery and stay with you for at least 24hrs to help you around the house. We will receive detailed post-op instructions, as well as a prescription for pain medication from Dr. Bachilo.  Swelling and bruising are expected following the surgery and will subside gradually over a month. You will have a wrap around your breasts immediately after surgery and will be changed into a compressive bra on your post op visit, which you will need to wear for a period of time to protect your healing breasts. You should sleep on your back, avoid heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for four to six weeks after surgery. Most patients are able to return to work within a week or two after surgery. Temporary increase or loss in sensation to your nipples is normal after breast lift and will resolve over time. You will be able to resume all your usual activities at six week following your procedure.

RESULTS

What Kind of Results Can I Expect With a Breast Lift?

You should expect a more youthful and attractive profile of your breasts. Your breasts will be positioned higher up on your chest and your nipples will be facing forward at the most projecting aspect of your breast.  You should enjoy long term results as long as you don’t gain or lose excessive weight in the future that may cause further sagging.  Any future pregnancy and lactation may also affect your results and therefore it is best to delay breast lift surgery until you are finished having children.  To further extend the longevity of your results you should maintain healthy lifestyle habits, such as not smoking, and establish a proper care regiment for your skin and a good sun protection regimen.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I know if a Breast Lift is right for me?

Will a Breast Lift tighten the sagging skin on my breasts?

Yes. A Breast Lift will lift and tighten sagging skin and fatty tissue in the breast, trimming away any excess skin.

Who is a good candidate for a Breast Lift?

If your breasts sag and droop, you can’t go without a bra, and your nipples point down at the floor instead of outward, you may be a good candidate for a Breast Lift. You must be an adult in good overall health and have no contraindications to surgery or anesthesia. You should also refrain from cigarette smoke and alcohol in preparation for your surgical procedure.

Will a Breast Lift prevent me from breastfeeding?

No. The Breast Lift will not prevent you from breastfeeding in the future, however, it may be wise to hold off on the Breast Lift surgery until after you have finished with pregnancy and nursing, so that your surgical outcomes won’t be affected by future weight fluctuations and hormonal changes that may come with future pregnancy and lactation.

The cost of the Breast Lift procedure may vary between patients, depending on the extent of the surgery and what other cosmetic procedures you may elect to have done at the same time.  Typically, the cost of a Breast Lift varies between $6,000 and $10,000.

OVERVIEW

PRP Breast Lift Overview

The “Vampire Breast Lift” is a new, nonsurgical breast lift procedure that is performed using radiofrequency skin tightening technology and natural fat grafting and may also include Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections to enhance firmness and volume in the bust line. The Vampire Breast Lift is available for residents of Houston, Katy, Sugar Land and other neighboring areas at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, headed by respected plastic surgeon Dr. Olga Bachilo, one of Houston’s best breast surgeons.

ADVANTAGES

What Are the Advantages of a Scarless Vampire Breast Lift?

The Vampire Breast Lift provides a plethora of advantages for the right candidates, and produces dramatic results that can have a powerful rejuvenating impact on your figure. A Vampire Breast lift provides significant lifting and firming of the breasts, as well as increase in breast volume, without an invasive surgical procedure or breast implants.

A Vampire Breast Lift requires no visible incisions, so it leaves no visible scars, and the procedure requires far less downtime than a traditional surgical breast lift. It is also far less costly.

PROCEDURE

How Is the Scarless Vampire Breast Lift Performed?

The Scarless Vampire Breast Lift achieves its results by means of non-invasive radiofrequency technology and fat grafting that simultaneously smoothes and contours other areas of the body, transferring excess fat from those areas to the breasts.

The Scarless Vampire Breast Lift may be customized for each patient, and has the added advantage of contouring other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks, because fat may be harvested from these areas in order to be grafted to the breast tissue to create larger, firmer breasts. In some cases, PRP injections may be added to the treatment to further enhance the firmness and rejuvenation of the breast area.

CANDIDATES

Am I a Good Candidate for a Scarless Vampire Breast Lift?

If you are a healthy adult, the Scarless Vampire Breast Lift may be ideal for you, and provides you with an opportunity to fine-tune different areas of your body at once, helping you to achieve a firm, tight bust line with breasts that will sit firmly on your chest. If you take any blood-thinning medication, you may need to suspend its use in preparation for the procedure. Be sure to inform Dr. Bachilo of any prior procedures, as well as history of allergies, and list any medications that you may be taking, including natural supplements, during your introductory session to determine whether a Scarless Vampire Breast Lift may be ideal for you.
