Ideal Candidates for Breast Lift

Various factors, such as pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and gravity, can cause the breasts to lose shape and firmness as women age. Breast lift surgery (“mastopexy”) is a procedure that lifts and firms the breasts for a better overall breast contour by eliminating excess skin and tightening the remaining tissue.

*In many cases, a breast lift surgery is performed as part of the Mommy Makeover procedure in order to attain more comprehensive rejuvenation results.

Donut Incision

An incision is made around the entire areola. This technique is suitable for women with mild sagging.

Lollipop Incision

An incision is made around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease. This technique is best for women who experience a moderate degree of sagging.

Anchor Incision

An incision is made around the areola, vertically down the breast, and horizontally along the breast crease. This technique is best suited for women who have severe sagging.

VECTRA® 3D Imaging

Our office utilizes VECTRA® 3D Imaging to provide a high-resolution, three-dimensional simulation of how your results may appear. During your consultation with Dr. Mess, your preferences and goals will be discussed to determine which procedures can achieve your desired results. You will have multiple photos taken from various angles, and the images are then transferred to our computer system. Using these photos, a three-dimensional model is created, and your simulated procedure results are added to display the expected outcome. This process allows a visual aspect for more accurate treatment plans and procedure result estimates.

Recovery: What to Expect after Your Breast Lift surgery

After the procedure is complete, waterproof bandages and a specialized surgical bra are applied to the breasts to minimize swelling. Patients should be careful to follow Dr. Mess’ postoperative instructions, which include:

  • Get plenty of rest and apply ice packs to the breasts for the first couple of days
  • Take prescribed medication during the first week to alleviate pain or soreness
  • Visit the office for your post-op appointment to ensure recovery is going well
  • Refrain from any strenuous exercise or activity for the first two or three weeks
  • Continue with follow-up appointments to ensure there are no complications

Every woman is different, and the time it takes patients to recover from breast lift surgery can vary. Breast lift scars will fade over the next few months, and applying silicone sheets will help diminish their appearance more quickly.

How much does Breast Lift surgery cost?

We believe patients make better decisions when they understand the options and cost ranges for cosmetic surgery. We are happy to provide a basic price range for breast lift surgery, but final costs cannot be determined prior to your consult with Dr. Mess.

Most breast lift surgeries are scheduled from 2-3 hours. Many patients combine liposuction or abdominoplasty with breast lift surgery for “mommy makeover” results. Dr. Mess will help you determine the best options to achieve your aesthetic goals.

The best way to determine your procedure pricing is to come in for a consult with Dr. Mess. Our Columbia office is conveniently located and easily assessable from both Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.

Our surgical estimates are comprehensive. Your breast lift surgery quote will include:

  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Operating room fees and supply charges
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Post-surgical garments
  • All appointments before or after your surgery

Price Range for breast lift surgery: $7500- $9000. (budget an additional $1200 to $1500 if considering breast lift augmentation with silicone implants)  Your costs may fall outside of this range.

Results after Breast Lift Surgery

After the surgery is complete, the results of a breast lift are immediately noticeable and will continue to improve over the next few weeks. Women can feel confident about themselves knowing that their breasts look more uplifted and youthful. Women come from all over the Baltimore, Columbia, and Washington D.C. areas to attain the breast lift results Dr. Mess delivers.
