Q. What is Breast Lifting?

A. A breast lift involves lifting the breast that has “drooped” either because of natural causes or as a consequence of pregnancy and lactation or loss of elasticity as time goes by.

Sometimes a small or medium breast implant is needed to obtain the best cosmetic improvement.

A. The ideal candidate is a patient that cannot stand anymore the “sagging” or poor shape of their breasts and wants to do something about it.

Q. Are there risks and complications to a breast lift surgery?

A. Like any cosmetic surgery there are risks and potential complications involved including some bleeding, infection, possible loss of sensation, bad scars, etc.

Q. How long do the results last?

A. Results are long lasting (over 8-10 years) but the genetics and tissue elasticity of each patient plays a very important factor.

Q. How much does breast lift surgery cost?

A. A breast lift will range between $6000 to $8500 depending if breast implants are needed to get the best results.
