Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
There are many reasons that breasts may begin to lose their shape and firmness and require a Breast Lift procedure in order to re-create their former appearance: age, gravity, dramatic weight loss, or pregnancy and breast-feeding. Some patients also notice a decrease in size, or they were never quite happy with their breast size to begin with, therefore a breast augmentation with a lift may be the best solution for achieving the desired look.
The ideal candidate for the Breast Lift procedure may have breasts that are the size they desire, but have begun to sag or droop downwards, while the breasts may have lost their firmness and/ or the nipples and areolas have begun to point downwards. This candidate should be in good health with no illnesses that would negatively affect the body’s healing process after the procedure. Finally, most importantly, potential patients should have realistic expectations for the possible results the procedure will produce.
As the Breast Lift surgery is considered a cosmetic procedure, most are usually not covered by most insurance plans. Dr. Schaffer, however, can help you work with financing companies to help get the results you are looking for while being able to pay off the cost in manageable increments. Be sure to inquire about financing options with Dr. Schaffer during your consultation to best help you pay for this wonderful procedure.
Finally, a Breast Lift can be an amazing, rejuvenating experience that can help to boost your confidence in your body following childbirth and nursing, weight loss or the ravages of time.
