Your breasts are vulnerable to the effects of weight loss, pregnancy, breast-feeding and aging, and may start to sag naturally over time. Dr. Humberto Palladino is a talented El Paso breast lift surgeon who can re-sculpt your breasts to give them a more youthful position on your chest, enabling you to feel more comfortable with your appearance. He may recommend combining breast lift with another breast procedure, such as breast augmentation or breast reduction for optimal results.
Am I a Candidate for a Breast Lift
If you are like many women, you’ve noticed the decline of your breast position and volume after having children and breastfeeding. Or, if you are not a mother, perhaps you have simply experienced the effects of weight fluctuation and aging. You are likely a suitable breast lift candidate if you are in good health and have reasonable expectations of surgery. To confirm that you are, Dr. Palladino will meet with you to discuss your surgical goals, examine your breasts and evaluate your health history.
The Procedure – What to Expect
Breast lift is performed on an outpatient basis. You will receive detailed instructions ahead of time to prepare you for surgery. One of the most important arrangements to make is to have someone drive you to and from the surgery center and remain at the facility for updates on your progress during the procedure. Dr. Palladino will take one of several different approaches to surgery in terms of incision pattern and reshaping the breast mound; together you will decide ahead of time which approach will yield the most favorable results. Breast lift may be combined with the placement of breast implants or fat grafting to enhance both the position and the size of your breasts, or with breast reduction to remove excess breast tissue.
Your breasts will be sore, swollen and bruised following lift surgery. Wearing the recommended support bra will help with the swelling and the discoloration as the tissues heal. After breast lift, you will need to refrain from any bending, lifting or straining, as these activities can enhance the risk of swelling and bleeding. In general, anything that could put pressure on the breasts should be avoided. Dr. Palladino will follow up with you regularly to check on your healing progress, answer any questions and advise when it is safe to return to work, school and exercise. Though breast lift recovery time varies by patient, you should be back to your normal routine quickly.
The cost of a breast lift surgery runs anywhere between $4,000 and $6,000. The price varies depending on the amount of lift needed and the type of incisions being made.
