How can I find a pro bono breast lift?

How can I find a pro bono breast lift?

Unlikely: Since the breast lift is cosmetic, it's not going to be covered by insurance. Even if a kindly surgeon donates his time, there's still charges for anesthesia, supplies and medications. You might try looking at some of the plastic surgery teaching programs, and see if there is a resident-run clinic for discount surgery. But, it's still unlikely to be totally free.

How expensive is breast lift?

How expensive is breast lift?

It depends: Breast lifts can vary depending upon the specific type of procedure used, whether an implant is incorporated, and the skill of the physician. This type of procedure is one of the more complicated within plastic surgery and so it is highly recommended to seek out a plastic surgeon skilled specifically in this area and who has a significant amount of experience. Never go on price alone.

What exactly is a breast lift?

What exactly is a breast lift?

Breast reshaping: A breast lift doesn't merely lift the breast--it also shapes the breast and often incorporates the use of an implant to help provide not only additional volume but also structure to the breast. Overall, a breast lift generally lifts and shapes tissue, reduces the diameter of the areola, and restores a more youthful appearance to the breast.

Is getting a breast lift dangerous?

Is getting a breast lift dangerous?

There are risks: With all surgery. However, a breast lift or mastopexy is generally considered safe. There are risks of anesthesia, infection, poor healing/scarring but these risks are unusual. The excess or loose skin is removed and tightened to lift and shape the breast. Sometimes an implant is used to add volume. Be sure to research and find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon that you are comfortable with.

What is an internal breast lift? Is it common?

What is an internal breast lift? Is it common?

Ini-Breast lift. Yes: Yes. By definition all the breast lifts have an internal reshaping or lift as a component of the procedure along with the skin reshaping. For example, reshaping by incising and 'double breasting' (yes it is a term, plastic surgeons use), suture reshaping, mesh placements, splitting muscle and passing a tongue of tissue to augment the upper pole are different techniques used so talk to your md.

Do I need to be at least 18 to get a breast lift?

Do I need to be at least 18 to get a breast lift?

Teen breast surgery: When considering breast surgery in a young woman, the usual consideration is to wait till the breast has achieved its normal growth i.e. She is at least 1-2 years post-puberty. If the breast is under or over developed then surgery is contemplated. Earlier surgeries are rarely performed and can be e.g. for release of significant chest scars to allow the breast buds to grow.

Would it be possible get a breast lift on the nhs?

Would it be possible get a breast lift on the nhs?

Probably Not.: Although I do not have any personal experience with the nhs, I can tell you that breast lifting surgery is not covered through any type of health insurance in the United States. This procedure is considered cosmetic in nature, and not "medically necessary”. Best wishes.

How is a breast lift done exactly, and does it last?

Technique Depends...: There are different surgical techniques used to lift the breast. To determine which is best suited for you, you'll need to discuss your options with a board certified plastic surgeon. In general, the further the breast has fallen, the more extensive the surgery. A breast lift can be done with or without augmentation.

Is it true that breast lift can be reversed overtime?

Yes: Yes, breasts may change over time, especially if the patient experiences pregnancies and/or significant weight gain/loss. Additionally, factors such as genetics, loss of skin elasticity as well as ongoing time/gravity play roles. For these reasons, the “ideal” patient for breast lifting is one who has completed pregnancies and/or weight gain/loss and has achieved a long-term stable weight.

Can you tell me about breast lift for a large breast?

Same as reduction: In the case of a large breast, we typically call it a breast reduction. In a very large breast, a lift procedure will usually not accomplish our goals and so a formal reduction is performed. They are very similar in technique. The real difference is the amount of breast tissue removed.

Are there contraindications for getting a breast lift?

Are there contraindications for getting a breast lift?

Risks to consider: A breast lift typically involves removing some skin so there are scars that will be permanent. Most patients consider it a good trade-off and the scars fade but you need to accept those. Many plastic surgeons will not do breast lifts on smokers due to the higher chances of healing problems. Overweight patients are also more likely to experience surgical complications.
