Why Choose Breast Lift Surgery?
A breast lift can result in firmer, more youthful looking breasts, whether sagging is the result of:
- Massive weight loss or bariatric surgery
- Loss of skin’s natural elasticity
- Combination of the above
And in elevating the breasts and improving their shape, a breast lift at Columbia Aesthetic Plastic Surgery can, like that decadent piece of rich chocolate cake, do wonders in lifting your spirits.
Your Breast Lift
Dr. Chang prides himself in providing his patients with a friendly, relaxing, refined environment, as well as a fulfilling experience. In Dr. Chang, you will find a plastic surgeon who will treat you like you are his number one patient. Consequently, at your consultation, you will be given all the time you need to have all of your questions about a breast lift answered, as well as any concerns about the popular procedure addressed.
After Dr. Chang learns about you and your goals, he will describe in plain language the 1 to 2 hour outpatient procedure, also known as “mastopexy.” For instance, you will learn how Dr. Chang can perform what’s known as a short-scar or “vertical” breast lift, which can reduce healing times and can lead to breasts that are fuller and remain firmer longer than a traditional, “anchor” pattern breast lift.
Although the short-scar, or “vertical” breast lift has been popular in Europe for over 2 decades, the technique has gained popularity in America only during the past few years. Dr. Chang performs vertical breast lifts almost exclusively, and believes that a short scar breast lift has several advantages, including:
- Reduced operating times
- Less scarring
- Increase in blood supply to the skin, resulting in fewer problems with wound healing
- Fuller, more youthful looking breast shape
- Breast shape that lasts longer with less bottoming out of the breast over time
At your breast lift consultation at Columbia Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Chang will evaluate whether this technique is the best for your particular circumstance. Then, after a careful assessment of your goals, as well as your body type, Dr. Chang will offer his honest, expert advice. He will also discuss the potential risks and complications of a breast lift. Dr. Chang often combines breast augmentation (enlargement) with a breast lift. In many cases, he will actually recommend augmentation because, while a lift elevates the breasts while improving both tone and shape, the procedure does not result in larger breasts. Adding breast implants to some Columbia women’s breast lift procedures can restore lost volume to the breasts. This can create an attractive amount of cleavage for women who may not achieve fuller breasts with a lift alone.”
What does a breast lift cost? As with virtually all cosmetic surgeries, a number of factors can influence the total price. We discuss the cost of a breast lift in detail with each patient and provide a price quote.
When it comes to beautifully contoured breasts, you’ve probably wondered about those “miracle” creams, lotions, and herbal supplements you’ve read about in magazines or on the Internet. They don’t work, and they won’t give you the breasts you once enjoyed. But breast enhancement surgery with Dr. Chang just might. In fact, your breasts just might be even better than you remember.
Breast Lift FAQ
How much does a breast lift cost?
On average, a breast lift costs roughly $5,000 according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. However, this price can vary between geographic regions and may increase with the experience of the surgeon.
Additionally, numerous associated fees can increase the cost of plastic surgery. This average is non-inclusive, meaning it only accounts for the surgery itself. Other critical items add to the price, including anesthesia, facility fees and recovery garments. To know how much your breast lift will cost you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Eric Chang.

How do I find the best plastic surgeon for a breast lift near me?
Start with online research, looking for qualifications like board certification with the American Board of Plastic Surgery, affiliations with medical associations, hospital privileges and client reviews. Using this information, narrow down the possibilities to your top two or three picks. Then, schedule consultations with each of them to get a feel for how they work and how they view your procedure. Discuss your motivations and expectations and look at their before and after photos of breast lifts that they have completed in the past. Once you have spoken with all of them, select the one who makes you feel comfortable, aligns with your goals and is the most qualified to help you.
How much pain will I experience after a breast lift?
Because everyone experiences pain in different ways, we cannot specify how much you will feel after a breast lift. Keep in mind that, like all surgical procedures, breast lifts do come with a recovery period and some discomfort and tenderness as your body heals. You may also experience swelling, bruising, tingling, numbness or other similar sensations. Many people report that the majority of these side effects resolve within several weeks and are easily managed with the proper prescription or over-the-counter medications.
What is breast lift recovery like?
Recovery from a breast lift is similar to recovery from other cosmetic surgeries in that you need to rest and take it easy. We ask that you fully rest for at least two days after your breast enhancement procedure. Once those days have passed, light movement is okay, as long as you take it easy. Plan to take at least a week off from work, and avoid strenuous physical activity for 2 to 3 weeks. After around six weeks, you should be fully healed and back to your usual activities.
Are there risks associated with breast lifts?
Breast lifts are generally safe procedures, but that does not mean that they are without risks or potential complications. As with any surgery, there is a chance you could develop an infection, have an allergic reaction or experience excess bleeding. Watch for signs of problems and seek medical attention at the first negative symptom. Don’t hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions or concerns at all at any stage of the recovery process following your breast lift.
