Breast lift surgery – also called mastopexy – is a popular procedure in the United States. But is it worth it for you? Deciding whether to undergo a rejuvenating procedure is a big decision, of course, and our experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Anthony Miller is here to provide guidance every step of the way.
When people wonder if a procedure is “worth it,” they are usually thinking about cost, surgery, recovery and results. Let’s take a look at each of these items, but keep in mind that the decision is entirely a personal one.
- How long it lasts: The results of a breast lift are long-lasting. Women remain happy with the look of their breasts for years and years down the road, although the procedure cannot stop the unceasing effects of gravity and aging. Although skin continues to sag as you age, your breasts should look perkier and firmer than they would have otherwise, even years after your original surgery.
- How much it costs: Because the cost of the procedure varies based on certain factors, we discuss the cost estimate at the time of your consultation. We’ll also describe the payment and financing options that exist to help you plan how you will pay for the procedure.
- The extent of downtime: There are several phases to recovery. You’ll need to take it easy for several days. During this time, you won’t be out at social events or doing anything strenuous. Most people are able to return to work after 1 week, assuming your job doesn’t involve heavy lifting or strenuous activity. Most people are able to resume all normal activities after 3-4 weeks, and the recovery is largely complete at 6 weeks.
- The procedure itself: While it’s perfectly understandable to be nervous about any surgery, know that you are in experienced, skilled hands when you choose Dr. Miller. It’s important to choose an experienced, extensively trained and reputable cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Miller. During your consultation, we’ll discuss anesthesia options and what to expect from the surgical appointment, but know that your safety and comfort are our priorities.
