Elevate your quality of life with a strategic breast lift procedure.

Once the breasts begin to sag, whether it is due to age, significant weight loss, or pregnancy and breastfeeding, there is no amount of exercise or diet that can return them to their youthful buoyancy and perkiness. Often, breasts may sag unevenly. 

Over time, the breasts can begin to appear pendulous and deflated, marring an otherwise lovely silhouette. Thankfully, these concerns may be left behind when patients undergo a breast lift in Las Vegas by Dr. Engineer at Engineered Aesthetics Plastic Surgery. Join us for your personal, comprehensive consultation to discover whether a breast lift may be the best option for you.

What is a breast lift?

During a breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, your surgeon will remove excess, stretched skin on the breasts and tighten skin on surrounding areas. The nipples will be placed according to the new shape of your breasts, and the areola may be made smaller as well. Overall, a more lifted, even, and youthful shape of the breasts may be lastingly created through a breast lift.

A breast lift does not add size to your breasts, but the boosted profile of the breasts post-mastopexy often creates the appearance of more fullness. Depending upon your specific goals, a breast lift may be combined with a breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery in order to change the size as well as the profile of the bustline.

What are the different types of incisions for a breast lift?

  • Donut incision: Here a circular incision is made around the areola, with scarring well-hidden in the darker colors of the nipples. A donut lift is appropriate for cases involving only minor breast ptosis.
  • Lollipop incision: Here the incision encircles the areola, and then runs down vertically to the breast crease, creating the shape of every child’s favorite candy. A lollipop lift works best for those clients with moderate breast ptosis.
  • Anchor incision: An anchor incision is a T-shaped incision that encircles the areola, runs down vertically to the breast crease, and then runs horizontally along the inframammary fold. Women who suffer from significant breast ptosis are well suited for an anchor lift, as it affords the surgeon the most leverage in removing excess fat, skin and tissue.

Dr. Engineer will take the time to fully understand your goals and consider your intentions in order to develop the best, safest, and most effective surgical plan possible for you.

Who makes the ideal candidate for breast lift surgery in Las Vegas?

Good candidates for a breast lift in Las Vegas have ample skin elasticity in the breasts and are unhappy with breast sagging related to aging, pregnancy, or massive weight loss. All patients undergoing surgery should be non-smokers in good general health, both mental and physical, and they should be free from medical issues such as hypertension or bleeding disorders that might interfere with surgery or recovery.

Lastly, candidates for a breast lift should be realistic in what they hope to achieve, having undergone an in-depth private consultation with Dr. Engineer at his Las Vegas plastic surgery office.

What can I expect from my recovery?

After breast lift surgery, you may require several days of downtime with limited movement of the chest and arms. Some clients are able to return to work after week 2. You will be asked to wear a compression garment, which helps to minimize postoperative swelling and keep your new breast shape pristine and intact. Dr. Engineer will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions for bathing, sleeping, wound care, exercise and the long term health of your breasts.

What is the typical cost for a breast lift?

Breast lift fees are based on the extent of the work performed, and on the facility fees, surgeon’s fees, anesthesia fees, and recovery fees. A breast lift in Las Vegas tends to run $7500-9500.

Breast Lift FAQs

Is a breast lift covered by insurance?

Insurance does not typically cover cosmetic procedures, so unless there is some way in which breast lift surgery is going to solve a medical problem for you, the costs will most likely fall on you. Rest assured our office can help you to apply for financing through a variety of trusted healthcare lenders so that you can get started on your journey towards a more youthful-looking figure right away.

Who makes the best candidate for a breast lift in Las Vegas?

Dr. Engineer will conduct a thorough physical evaluation and review of your medical history during your consultation, and after listening carefully to your aesthetic goals he will be able to advise on your candidacy for a breast lift. Clients should be non-smokers of sound mind and body who have realistic expectations for their outcome.

Will I be able to breastfeed after surgery?

Yes, breastfeeding after a breast lift is perfectly safe, provided you wait long enough for your body to properly heal from surgery.

Will I lose sensation in my nipples?

Dr. Engineer will do everything possible to ensure you retain sensation in your nipples by carefully choosing the best incisions for your anatomy. Some temporary loss of feeling is normal however, following any breast surgery.

What is the difference between breast lift and breast reduction?

Breast lift surgery cannot affect the size of your breasts. Rather, it works to elevate sagging breasts and restore a more youthful-looking breast projection. During a breast reduction, the surgeon can remove excess fat, tissue and skin to beautifully contour the chest and create more proportional breast mounds. These two procedures can be combined for comprehensive upper body sculpting.
