Breast Lift (Mastopexy) in Little Rock, AR
Dr. English, a triple board-certified surgeon at English Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center, offers various plastic surgery procedures to the residents of Little Rock, Conway, Pulaski County and the surrounding communities in Arkansas.
What is a Breast Lift?
It is an unfortunate fact that a woman’s breasts will begin to sag as she gets older. The aging process causes the skin to lose elasticity, leading to a loss in firmness and shape. This problem isn’t confined to just older women, as females who develop sooner than others may naturally have sagging breasts. Other conditions such as pregnancy and breastfeeding can take their toll on the breasts as well, causing them to sag much sooner than most women would like. A breast lift or mastopexy performed by Dr. Jim English of English Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Center could be the answer for many ladies in Little Rock and beyond.
If you would like an idea as to what type of results are possible with a breast lift, we invite you to visit our before and after photo gallery to see actual pictures of some of our breast lift patients. These photographs are untouched, and should not be construed as medical advice.
Should I consider a breast lift?
You may desire a breast lift if:
- Your nipple and areola sag a great deal below your breast mound.
- The distance between your collarbone and nipples is greater than 22 centimeters.
- A majority of your breast tissue sits below the inframammary crease, or fold just beneath your breast.
How is a Breast Lift performed?
A variety of techniques may be used to perform a breast lift; however, Dr. English’s philosophy is to complete the procedure in such a way that his Little Rock patients experience as little scarring as possible. Depending upon your anatomy, he may use only a crescent incision above the areola, or make a lollipop-shaped cut that goes completely around your areola and then continues vertically down the center of your breast. He sometimes modifies these incisions, particularly when additional procedures are performed concurrently or being planned for a future date.
During your consultation, which will take place in his office, Dr. English will advise you which procedure he thinks is best. At that time, he will discuss the various types of breast lifts, and will go over any additional procedures you want done so that they can be considered as factors as well.
How much does a breast lift cost in Little Rock?
Each breast lift procedure is unique because it is performed with YOU in mind. Since your needs will be different from other patients, it will not be possible to provide you with an exact cost until after you meet with Dr. English the first time. Once he has established a treatment plan, we can then go over the cost and discuss which method of payment might be right for you. We accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards, in addition to financing through CareCredit® or MedLoanFinance.com.
Cosmetic surgery procedures, such as a breast lift, are generally considered elective, and are therefore not covered under most health insurance plans. As such, our office does not accept any form of health coverage.
