Breast Lift in Houston, TX

What Is a Breast Lift?

Houston, TX board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rolando Morales restores the breast and nipple back to its youthful anatomical position following the effects of aging, weight loss or pregnancy through a breast lift, or mastopexy. Restoration of a breast to its anatomical position is dependent on many factors, including age, the quality of the skin, history of pregnancy and history of weight loss. The breast lift procedure is intended to give women an elevated, more youthful breast contour, as well as ensure the desired size of the nipple-areolar complexes are at the correct height and location.

How Does a Breast Lift Work?

A breast lift typically takes 2 to 3 hours to complete, and is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. There are several possible techniques for a breast lift. If there is breast volume asymmetry, it can be improved by removing excess volume in the larger breast. All techniques typically require excess skin excision to help reshape the breast. These techniques are designed to move the nipple into a more youthful position. There are other techniques, such as the short-scar lift, which involves less extensive incisions and scarring, which may be appropriate for certain patients.

Breast lift surgery is a great choice for women looking to gain a fuller appearance to their chest. A customized mastopexy procedure completed by Dr. Morales at his Houston, TX office is associated with the following benefits:

  • Improving breast firmness and fullness
  • Tightening skin for a smoother look
  • Revising drooping and sagging
  • Fixing breast asymmetry
  • A more youthful overall look
  • Adjusting the areolas and upgrading nipple positioning
  • Reducing irritation under the breasts

I just want to return gestures and pray that I can be that inspiration to the next woman on the fence of deciding. - Dr. Rolando Morales came highly recommended to me. When I first went to Dr. M, I was only wanting a breast lift (2017). He did suggest augmentations for upper pole fullness. I’m already very busty, so I thought implants would make me HUGH! So at the time, I declined...Well, ladies let me say “doc knows best” because within 2 years I was back because “something was missing”... yep you got that ...

Surgery day, the surgery center staff was awesome and welcoming as well Anesthesiologist she was awesome and reassuring. Loved the amenities of the surgery center and cleanliness I had a tummy tuck and breast lift, and I can say what you see on YouTube or other video I didn’t experience anything like it once I woke up from surgery I had flowers from dr.

Recovery was pretty easy besides the occasional pain from coughing and sneezing, I was standing straight up the next day, a nurse was sent to my hotel room to help show me how to change my dressings. I couldn’t be more thankful for dr. Morales I love my results my scares are minimal they healed so good!! I’m 2mths postop and I feel amazing

I had a very positive experience with Dr. Morales. I chose him for my mommy makeover surgery (breast lift w/ augmentation and tummy tuck with lipo) because I really liked the results of his previous patients but most importantly, he understands the importance of exercise and nutrition and really promotes this in his practice for the best results. He never rushed my appointments and always took the time to make sure he answered all my questions and that I understood what I needed do. I appreciated his professionalism and his passion for what he does. I’m 2 month post op and very please with my results so far!

Outpatient

You may visit Dr. Morales wanting fuller breasts with breast implants, but after a private assessment, you may realize that breast lift surgery is a better choice to achieve your desired results. The reason is due to the severity of sag that is shown. In most cases, breasts that have lost elasticity need a lift to correct skin irregularities and lift the breasts to a perkier position. If you have nipples that droop downward and your breasts appear stretched, a cosmetic lift can dramatically improve their appearance. If you are contemplating a breast lift, you should be physically healthy and at a stable weight.

Covered By Insurance?

Unfortunately, most insurance policies consider a breast lift as a cosmetic procedure, and do not cover the expenses of the procedure.

Combine With Other Procedures?

A breast lift is often combined with other body contouring procedures, such as a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or liposuction. When all of these are combined, it is often called a Mommy Makeover.

When Can I Go Back To Work?

Every person recovers differently. The recovery period depends on how many procedures were performed at the same time. The average return to work for the standard breast lift is 1 week.

When Can I Exercise?

The average return to routine exercise is no sooner than 2 months. The swelling after breast lift surgery requires more time to heal.

What Is Recovery Like after a Breast Lift?

A few days after surgery, any bandages that are applied are usually removed. Patients are required to wear a support bra or compression bandage to help support and position the breasts. They will feel tight as the skin adjusts to the new breast shape. Swelling fades within a few weeks. The scars will be pink for several weeks, but fade over a period of several months. Patients will be able to go about light daily activities after the first few days, but more aerobic recreation should be delayed for about 3 weeks. Most patients return to work within 2 weeks unless their job requires lifting or aerobic activity.

How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost?

The average cost for a breast lift is $10,000 - $12,000. The cost depends on the extent of the surgery, and the technique used.
