Due to aging, pregnancy/breastfeeding, and/or major weight fluctuations, the breasts may lose volume and elasticity. This can lead to sagging and deflation in the breasts that oftentimes causes women to feel unhappy with their breast contour. In order to regain a more youthful appearance, you may wish to learn more about breast lift surgery (“mastopexy”). This breast surgery can be performed by a trained and experienced Palo Alto cosmetic surgeon.

Options in Breast Lift Surgery

Based on the amount of sagging and your desired results, your surgeon will recommend the most appropriate breast lift technique. The most commonly used incisions include around the areola, down the breast and underneath the breast (anchor incision); or simply around the nipple (concentric doughnut incision). Your surgeon will remove excess skin, lift the breast to a more youthful position, and reposition the nipple if necessary. You may anticipate a more proportional appearance and even a boost in self esteem.

Post-surgery, patients will wear a supportive bra to help the breasts adjust to their new shape and size. Instructions provided  by your surgeon should be followed meticulously in order to ensure a healthy recovery.

In some circumstances, breast augmentation may be combined with a lift in order to achieve optimal results. If you have minimal sagging present, breast implants alone be sufficient to provide an ideal outcome. The most beneficial technique will be discussed during your consultation.

How much does breast lift surgery cost?

The average cost of breast lift in the Palo Alto area is $8,867. Patients should be sure to note that this does not include the anesthesia or surgery center fee. Additional fees may include medication and post-surgery care. A more accurate estimate of final cost can be obtained during a consultation with a Palo Alto breast lift surgeon.
