Initial Consultation

At the initial consultation, your health history will be reviewed and the Breast Lift procedure will be explained in great detail, and any alternative procedures, as well as the risks and benefits of surgery, will be discussed.

Here you will also check before and after photographs of Dr. Lawton‘s patients, and all of your questions will be answered.

During the examination, your breast width, height, and nipple position will be measured. Any differences in the breasts from left to right will be evaluated. You will have the opportunity to point out the particular characteristics of your anatomy that you would like to improve or change.

After extensive discussion, you and Dr. Lawton will agree on which surgical plan will best achieve your goals. Our goal and commitment is that you leave this initial visit with a clear understanding of your surgical options, so that you can make an informed decision.

What Happens During The Breast Lift Procedure?

Breast Lift is performed in our private AAAASF Certified Class-C Outpatient Surgical Center. The procedure takes between 2 and 3 hours.

During surgery, the stretched, excess skin which allows the breast to drop is excised. The size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple, is reduced. The nipple, which stays attached to the breast throughout the procedure, is moved to a higher, more appropriate position. The skin is then brought together to reshape the breasts.

For this outpatient surgery, we utilize general intravenous anesthesia that is administered by an elite group of carefully selected, highly qualified, board-certified anesthesiologists and is designed to provide a smooth and gentle anesthetic experience, as well as prevent postoperative pain.

What Is The Recovery Like After A Breast Lift?

After your surgery, it is important to get plenty of rest. At home, you will have medications to help to ease the muscle spasm and narcotic analgesics for the pain. We also prescribe antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection. To reduce swelling and bruising, and speed up your recovery, we will provide you with surgical vitamins, arnica, and bromelain.

We will see you the day after your surgery at our office. By the fourth or fifth day, the discomfort should be significantly reduced. You will need to come back in one week to have your sutures removed. By then, you should be feeling well enough to resume most of your normal activities, including work. However, it will take about 6 weeks for your wounds to heal to 50% of their full strength. Only after this time period, you can return to vigorous activities.

We will schedule follow-up appointments with you at 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and then every year after that. If needed, Dr. Lawton will see you more frequently, but these follow-up visits will always be free of charge.

Cost And Financing Options For Your Breast Lift Procedure

The cost of a Breast Lift procedure depends on several factors and variables and may vary from patient to patient. We provide financing options If you are ready to change your life, the way you feel find out more about the new version of yourself, you can schedule a consultation, or call us at Remington Oaks Medical Building Phone Number 210-496-2639 with any questions about the procedure.
