Having breasts that are youthful and perky in appearance may be important to maintaining feelings of self-confidence after pregnancy, aging, or serious weight loss. All of these factors, as well as genetics, play a role in making your breasts sag, creating problems with self-image.
At The Cosmetic Surgical Center of El Cerrito, we understand the important role body image plays in overall self-satisfaction. One of the cosmetic surgery procedures we offer is the breast lift. This procedure can help you regain your sense of confidence by improving your appearance.
How Is a Breast Lift Performed?
A breast lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of your breasts. In this procedure, Dr. Patino will make a small incision around your nipple or underneath your breast. The nipple is repositioned and the contours of your breasts are reshaped. Excess skin is then removed, and your breast is contoured to precisely match your body’s frame.
This procedure can be done on its own or in conjunction with other breast enhancement procedures to provide you with a look that makes you feel confident and secure in your body. Commonly, women with larger breasts combine a breast lift with breast reduction surgery while smaller breasted women look at breast augmentation options to provide a fuller, more appealing look.
What Can I Expect After a Breast Lift?
As with any surgery, some recovery time will be necessary after a breast lift. This breast lift recovery time will be prolonged if you combine breast lift surgery with another cosmetic procedure. But on its own, breast lift surgery requires very little down time.
After your surgery, Dr. Patino will close the incisions with dissolving sutures, eliminating the need to come back in to have your sutures removed. A special bra will be provided for you to wear for the first two weeks following your breast lift surgery. This bra will provide additional support while also reducing swelling.
Some swelling, redness, and mild discomfort may occur during your recovery time. This is temporary and can be reduced by avoiding strenuous exercise and physical activity. In most cases, your breasts should be completely healed within four weeks. After your brief recovery time, you will be able to go forward with increased confidence and a renewed sense of desirability.
How Much Does Breast Lift Surgery Cost in Oakland?
Pricing for a breast lift will depend on the severity of the sagging skin and if you have another breast procedure performed at the same time. At your initial consultation, we will review all of your pricing and financing options. For further information, view our patient financing page.
