Among the benefits are an improved appearance, a reduction in the size of stretched areolae and more youthful, feminine proportions, which has the added benefit of helping bras and swimsuits fit more comfortably and attractively. The surgery ultimately hopes to make the breasts look better proportioned, after birth or simply to rectify the issues of aging.
It’s important to understand exactly what your doctor’s quote includes. Does the number only include your surgeon’s fee? Or will it cover anesthesia, hospital fees, pre- or post-op appointments, and medications you’ll need throughout your recovery? If your doctor’s estimate doesn’t consider all those costs, be sure to factor them into your budget. Also be sure to ask how your surgeon handles revisions, in case you aren’t happy with your initial results.
Full breast lift uses an anchor incision, which is the most invasive of all incisions used in cosmetic breast surgery. This technique uses a similar pattern to the vertical technique, with the addition of a long horizontal inframammary incision along the natural breast fold. Scarring from this extreme procedure will be the most noticeable, but might still only look like light lines on the breast, if the surgeon is particularly skilled.
While I would need to examine you in person, 29 may be the distance in centimeters from sternal notch to nipple. That measurement is relatively long, implying that you have a significant amount of ptosis or sag. From your image, I would actually say that you don’t need the anchor incision breast lift, which requires the greatest scar burden, but it does appear that you would be best suited for a vertical breast lift with an incisional scar around the areola plus one down the lower pole of the breast. To achieve the degrees of lift you likely need, you need that vertical incision.
Our plastic surgeons are leading the way in the BBL cosmetic surgery industry. We understand that the buttock is a particularly hard area of the body to shape and maintain in exercise. This can cause a lot of frustration for women looking to tone their appearance. A perky, round, and lifted buttocks brings the upper body into a smooth proportion. Full and youthful buttock gives patients attractive physique and balanced appearance.
Thank you for your question. This is a difficult question to answer because there is not a set price for liposuction. Price should not be your determining factor for choosing who does your procedure. Your first question should be is this individual properly trained? Are they a board certified plastic surgeon? How many of these procedures do they do? Also, what is the technique that they are going to use? Prices are usually determined by the location that you want treated and the facility you are having the surgery. We do have a policy of giving larger discounts when there are multiple areas being treated at the same time. Please remember higher prices do not always equal a better result, but the lowest price may not be the best decision either. This is a decision that should be based on trust and experience.
Note that patients are strongly advised to avoid smoking and alcohol consumption 6 weeks before and after the procedure. Those habits highly interfere with wound healing, prolong recovery and increase the risk of infection. Health specialists also suggest patients maintain nutrient rich diet, drink enough water and exercise daily. Avoid fatty foods (steaks, fried foods and desserts) as they have a negative impact on the healing processes by increasing inflammation. The patient might be asked to refrain from eating and drinking approximately 6 hours before the surgery. This is done in order to prevent regurgitation and vomiting during the procedure.
The surgical technique used during your breast lift procedure will also influence the appearance of your scars. Your surgeon will explain the typical scarring associated with each technique, including the standard (anchor) breast lift surgery, doughnut mastopexy, and laser bra lift techniques; together, you can determine which is appropriate for you.
Scars are inevitable after any incision in the skin, of course, because scarring is part of the body’s “self-repair” process. Breast lift surgery, in my experience, is a very satisfying procedure for the vast majority of patients–even with the unavoidable, often minimal, scarring. Scars may be in an anchor shape, in the crease below the breast and from the center of the crease up to the areola, although there are other types of scarring. When you choose an experienced surgeon, you’ll find that your breast lift scars are well hidden, even when wearing low-cut clothing. This is one of the signs of a skilled breast lift surgeon.
