At Palm Harbor Plastic Surgery Centre, we like to keep up by announcing the most recent additions to our website and blog.


Here we feature one of our own, Dr. Jennifer Buck, a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Here the she has answered some of the common questions bizymoms visitors have about Breast Lifting. 

Q.    What is Breast Lifting?

A.    Manipulating the skin and breast tissue of the breast to achieve a desired, lifted, and more youthful breast appearance.

Q.    How is breast lift surgery done?

A.    Depending on the skin, breast tissue, and nipple position, breast lifting involves excising excess skin, lifting the breast tissue internally, and placing the nipple in a more upward position.  If the woman has too little breast tissue to accomplish this, she may also need a breast implant to assist in volume restoration.

Q.    What is the recovery period like?

A.    The patient will need 7 to 10 days off to recover. There is to be no heavy lifting (greater than 10 lbs), pushing, pulling, or straining with the arms for 6 wks.  There will be dressing changes for approximately 1 to 3 weeks.

Q.    Who is an ideal candidate for breast lift surgery?

A.    Any patient who desires her breasts to be higher, and potentially larger.   I see a lot of mothers who have lost some lift and volume of the breasts, secondary to breast feeding.

Q.    Are there risks and complications to a breast lift surgery?

A.    Risks involve bleeding, infection, scar formation, breast asymmetry, need for further surgery, post-operative mammographic changes, and changes in nipple/areolar sensation.

Q.    How long do the results last?

A.    Results are very patient dependent.  This depends on the elasticity (stretch) of the skin and weight of the breast tissue. Typically, results last from 5 to 10 years.  Wearing a comfortable bra at night will also help prolong results.

Q.    How much does breast lift surgery cost?


A.   Breast lift surgery can run the gamet from $6,000  to $10,000, depending on if we need to lift the tissues and add implants.  This is inclusive of anesthesia and operating room costs. To find out the true price of the procedure which is right for the patient, I  encourage her to see me for a free consultation.

Liposuction, also known as fat suction, suction lipectomy, tumescent liposuction, ultrasound assisted Lipoplasty or power assisted liposuction, is a technique to remove unwanted fat deposits from specific areas of the body, including the face, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, hips, and thighs; and the knees, calves and ankles.

Liposuction is not a substitute for weight reduction, but a method of removing localized fat that doesn't respond to dieting and exercise. Liposuction can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won't necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. 

Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them us. The best candidates for liposuction are of relatively normal weight but have pockets of excess fat in particular areas. You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in your expectations. 

Most important, having firm, elastic skin will result in a better final contour. (Hanging skin won't reshape to your body's new contours, and may require an additional procedure to surgically remove the excess skin.) 

Suction lipectomy is not recommended if you've had recent surgery on the spot to be sculpted, if you have poor blood circulation in that area, or if you have heart or lung disease. You should also understand that liposuction by itself will not improve the dimpling skin know as cellulite. 

Consider the use of Endermologie for this concern. You may contact our About Face Botuique for an Endermologie consultation. 

Scars from liposuction are small and strategically placed to be hidden from view, even in a bikini. However, other cosmetic problems may occur. They may include rippling or bagginess of the skin over the treated area, and pigmentation changes that may become permanent if exposed to the sun. Asymmetry (uneven contour or shape) sometimes requires a second procedure. 

Suction-assisted Lipectomy is a highly effective technique for giving you a new body contour with very little scarring. The results can be permanent, providing you eat sensibly and exercise regularly. If you do gain weight, you'll probably gain it more uniformly throughout your body, not just in the former bulges.
