Breast Lift or Breast Reduction with Lift
A breast reduction with lift plastic surgery procedure in Spokane, Tri Cities Wa and Coeur d’Alene Idaho is performed at Shape Cosmetic Surgery, the Northwest’s premiere provider of cosmetic and plastic surgical procedures. This combined procedure can effectively reduce, lift, and reshape the breast. It may also help to alleviate some back and neck problems, shoulder blade grooving from the bra straps, and rashes (intertrigo) along the inframammary folds associated with hygienic contact dermatitis.
Breast Reduction and Breast Lift Techniques
Circumvertical Breast Lift – A circumvertical breast lift has an incision around the nipple (areola) and a vertical incision extending from the bottom of the areola down to just above the inframammary fold. (Also known as the lollipop incision.)
Wise Pattern (Anchor) Breast Lift – A wise pattern (anchor) breast lift has an incision around the nipple (areolar) and a vertical incision from the areola down to the inframammary crease, and an incision in the crease underneath the breast.
During a breast lift surgery, excess skin is removed and the breast tissue and nipples are elevated to a higher position on the chest wall.
Your cosmetic surgeon will evaluate your medical history and your end result goals, examine you, and in consultation with you help you decide which lift would best meet your goals.
If you desire to have a breast augmentation procedure later on you may do so.
Insurance may cover your surgery if the size of your breasts are the cause of health problems, but it is important that you contact your health insurance carrier first to find out if you qualify. At Shape patients are required to pay for the procedure and then be reimbursed by their insurance carrier, if possible.
It is important to describe in detail what you would like to improve before surgery. When Dr. Lundeby, a Northwest breast reduction and lift specialist, fully understands your expectations, he will be able to help be sure your goals are realistic, and explain how they can be attained.
He will first examine your breasts and talk about your desired outcome. Because breast tissue is removed with a reduction, he requires all patients to have a mammogram before they undergo surgery.
Patient satisfaction with breast reduction is very high due to symptom relief and excellent aesthetic results.
