Combined with a breast augmentation or as a stand-alone procedure, a breast lift performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Timothy E. Fee, MD, can be an instant self-esteem boost for women looking to reverse the signs of aging and achieve a firmer, more youthful figure. With offices in Jacksonville and Fleming Island, Coastal Cosmetic Center offers breast lifts to residents in or around the surrounding communities in North Florida and throughout the world.
What is a Breast Lift?
Often combined with breast augmentation, a breast lift—also known as mastopexy— will raise the bustline to counteract the effects of pregnancy, nursing, weight gain or loss, and aging. A breast lift will help to repair skin that has lost its elasticity due to being overstretched or suffering the effects of gravity. Mastopexy gives breasts a fuller appearance without the need of adding volume.
What is Illusio (Breast) Imaging?
Illusio is a virtual 3D breast augmentation and simulator app. Dr. Fee utilizes this computer imaging technology to give you an impression of what your breasts and overall appearance will look like following your breast surgery. Illusio combines a 3D image of what your breasts will look like based on your implant selection along with a live image of your face and body. Together, you are able to see what your breast surgery results will look like in real time. This helps to eliminate stress and anxiety that often accompany plastic surgery.
What Are the Benefits of a Breast Lift (Mastopexy)?
A breast lift will add a youthful, toned look to your silhouette. Mastopexy will:
- Raise sagging breasts
- Reposition the nipple for a younger looking appearance
- Tighten and eliminate loose skin
- Improve overall confidence and self-esteem
- Improve stretch marks
Who is an Ideal Candidate for a Breast Lift?
Women who have given birth and nursed are usually great candidates for mastopexy, as these life events tend to stretch the tissue and skin resulting in loose, sagging breasts.
What is the Procedure for a Breast Lift?
Breast lifts are performed under general anesthesia at our on-site licensed ambulatory surgery center, Coastal Surgery Center, and take approximately one to two hours to complete. Incisions are made to remove excess skin around each areola and occasionally, under each breast. The remaining skin is tightened, and the areola and nipple are elevated on the breast to achieve the most natural position. In order to achieve optimal results, breast augmentation with silicone or gummy bear implants is frequently combined with a breast lift.
What is the Recovery for a Breast Lift?
Most patients recover quickly from the procedure and experience a brief recovery with only minor discomfort. Both operations—breast augmentation and breast lift—are extremely safe and patients enjoy fewer complications and better recovery times than ever before.
How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost?
The cost of a breast lift varies from patient to patient. Your specific costs will be discussed during your consultation. For your convenience, we offer financing options to assist you in paying for your procedure.
