About Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is available to most women who have undergone a mastectomy due to breast cancer or another disease. Breast reconstruction is often possible immediately following the removal of the breast, offering additional advantages to the patient. The best candidates for breast reconstruction are those whose cancer seems to have been eliminated by mastectomy.

Why Check for Board Certification?

You should never go into any surgical procedure blind, you should always do your research especially when it concerns your health and beauty. Because plastic surgery is an elective procedure and one that deals with your looks, it's easy for people to be timid and not ask around when doing research. Especially when it comes to choosing your doctor.

Board Certification is important not only because is states the obvious that the surgeon in question is in fact a real surgeon so you would never find yourself questioning whether or not he's set up to practice, it also proves that the surgeon has dedicated himself to a standard of quality care and excellence.

It is crucial that the Plastic Surgeon you're considering is Board Certified. All of our plastic surgeons on My Plastic Surgeon USA are board certified so you can go about your research on that dream body you've been wanting without the extra worry that your surgeon is a fake.

Mastopexy Information

Breast Lift (mastopexy) usually takes 1-3.5 hours. There are multiple techniques used for mastopexy, but the most common is an anchor-shaped incision. This follows the natural curve, or shape of the breast. This incision will outline the area of where the breast skin will be removed, and also will identify the new location of your nipple. When the excess skin is removed, the nipple, and areola, are repositioned to the elevated position. The skin is then brought down and reshapes the breast. Your plastic surgeon will usually put the stitches around the areola, and also along the lower crease of the breast.

Financing Your Surgery

Some people rely on health insurance to cover the costs of surgery, but in actuality, if you are getting surgery for cosmetic purposes, the chances of being covered are slim. Generally, health insurance will not cover the costs of surgery or any related expenses and most people that seek plastic surgery are not able to pay the full amount upfront. Because of this, My Plastic Surgeon USA offers plastic surgery financing options to make covering these costs feasible.

What is the Breast Lift Procedure?

Breast Lift is a procedure which can reshape and lift sagging breasts. The breast lift may be combined with an augmentation using saline or silicone breast implants, but you can get a breast lift without having implants.

Read the information below, and if you have more questions about the Breast Lift procedure, click here to search for a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or click here to submit a question to be answered personally by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Breast Lift (mastopexy) usually takes 1-3.5 hours. There are multiple techniques used for mastopexy, but the most common is an anchor-shaped incision. This follows the natural curve, or shape of the breast. This incision will outline the area of where the breast skin will be removed, and also will identify the new location of your nipple. When the excess skin is removed, the nipple, and areola, are repositioned to the elevated position. The skin is then brought down and reshapes the breast. Your plastic surgeon will usually put the stitches around the areola, and also along the lower crease of the breast.

If you are having a breast lift with implants (which is a very common procedure), the implant will be placed in a pocket directly under the breast tissue, or deeper, under the muscle of the chest.

Patients with smaller breasts and nominal sagging, may get a version of the breast lift that requires less incisions. One common procedure is the "doughnut breast lift" or "doughnut mastopexy."
