Every woman deserves to feel great whether she is wearing a sweatshirt or a bathing suit. As women go through life, however, there are several factors that may impact her view of herself. Pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight loss or just the simple act of aging are all things that may lead to a change in the shape, volume, or position of the breasts.
In our practices, patients see a vast improvement in their breasts through breast lift and or augmentation procedures. To determine the most suitable procedure for you, read on for more information.
Who is Right for Breast Enhancement & Breast Lift?
Any woman over the age of 18 is fully in control of choosing her ideal procedure. Through careful evaluation and discussion with your plastic surgeon, you can determine just what procedure(s) may have the maximum impact.
Some women choose to have breast lift surgery when:
Breasts are an acceptable size but they hang loosely
Breasts have lost firmness and volume
Nipples are downward facing
Nipples hang too far below the breast crease
Conditions such as these may exist in both breasts or just one and they may develop due to heredity, lifestyle factors, or aging as mentioned earlier.
Nursing After a Breast Lift
As with the breast augmentation procedure using breast implants, women should have no issues with breast feeding after breast lift surgery in most cases, though exceptions do apply. In many instances, in fact, breast lift surgery includes the use of breast implants. The reason for this is prolonged results (implants have a life span of about ten years).
Due to the specific placement of implants and the sub-muscular techniques involved in this cosmetic procedure, milk ducts are not usually impacted and breastfeeding is a viable option for these moms.
Is Breast Lift Covered by Insurance?
As breast lift surgery is typically deemed a purely cosmetic procedure, and therefore insurance companies rarely offer coverage for this treatment. When specific conditions apply, however, such as breast reconstruction after mastectomy, the opposite breast may be entitled to coverage for modification in order to correct an asymmetrical appearance. Breast lift scars are always kept to a minimum where possible.
Before scheduling surgery in our breast lift Manhattan or Long Island centers, you should verify the specifics of your insurance policy as far as coverage is concerned.
