Breast Lift Treatment Options

When considering your breast lift options, you must understand both the surgical and non-surgical treatments available to you.

It can be daunting to consider the prospect of a surgical procedure to enhance your appearance, but some non-surgical options can help you achieve a more youthful and defined look. In the last decade or two, there are now effective non-surgical options. A non-surgical breast lift is an increasingly popular option for those wanting to improve their bust without undergoing surgery. This comprehensive guide to non-surgical breast lifts will provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision. It will cover the different treatments available, the expected results, the potential risks, and the cost of the procedure. By the end of this guide, you will be well-informed and confident in your decision to go ahead with a non-surgical breast lift. 

Overview of Non-Surgical Breast Lift Treatments

There are now several options to lift breast tissue without an open surgical procedure. Liposuction with a breast lift is a procedure that removes excess fat from the breasts, which reduces the weight of the breast, causing a natural lift. Skin tightening treatments can be done simultaneously with liposuction, leading to further lifting and tightening of the breast. Breast lift with fat transfer involves removing fat from one area of your body and transferring it to your breasts to add volume and fullness, which, if placed correctly, will lead to a lift of the breast tissue. 

Benefits of a Non-Surgical Breast Lift

There are many benefits to choosing a non-surgical breast lift. The most obvious benefit is that you can avoid the risks associated with open surgical breast lifts, such as surgical complications like poor wound closure, re-openings, skin breakdown and wounds, loss of nipple sensation and function, and large scars. Many non-surgical breast lift treatments are also very cost-effective, meaning you can achieve results that rival surgery at a fraction of the price. A non-surgical breast lift can also be a good option if you have poor skin quality or excess fat build-up in the breasts, as surgery may not be suitable for these conditions. A non-surgical breast lift can help reduce sagging and restore the youthful appearance and volume of your breasts. This can help boost your confidence and improve your clothing options.

Potential Risks Involved

As with all medical procedures, there are risks involved with a non-surgical breast lift. Liposuction with a breast lift does require small punctures, which can result in scarring and bruising, although the scarring will be minimal (the size of a pencil eraser). Breast lift with fat transfer is associated with the risk of infection and reabsorption of the transferred fat.

Cost of Non-Surgical Breast Lift Treatments

The cost of non-surgical breast lift treatments varies depending on the procedure you opt for. Liposuction with a breast lift costs between $3,000 and $6,000. Breast lift with fat transfer has an average cost of $5,000 to $10,000 per breast. However, the results could be more consistent and may need to be repeated. Breast lift with fat transfer is more expensive but has a high success rate.

Expected Results

The results you can expect from a non-surgical breast lift will vary depending on your chosen treatment. Liposuction with a breast lift can increase breast volume, reduce sagginess, and remove excess fat. Breast lift with fat transfer can provide a modest increase in breast volume and decrease sagginess but, in some cases, may require a second session to achieve desired results. Liposuction with a breast lift can effectively decrease the volume of your breasts by one to three cup sizes, while a breast lift with fat transfer can increase breast volume by up to one cup or slightly more. 

Preparation for Non-Surgical Breast Lift

Before undergoing any non-surgical breast lift treatment, you should prepare your body and skin by following a healthy diet and lifestyle. Eating a diet rich in vitamins and minerals can help your body produce collagen, which is essential for strong and firm skin. Getting plenty of exercises can also help improve your skin, as it can reduce cellulite and improve blood flow and circulation.  Liposuction with Breast Lift: You should avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, and other blood-thinning medications for one week before the procedure, as these may increase your risk of bleeding. Breast Lift with Fat Transfer: You should avoid smoking and drinking alcohol two weeks before and two weeks after the procedure to reduce your risk of infection and reabsorption of the transferred fat. Many providers will not provide treatment for patients who cannot stop smoking in preparation for treatment.

Recovery from Non-Surgical Breast Lift

Liposuction with a breast lift is an outpatient procedure, and most people can return to work within about three days.  Breast lift with fat transfer is the same, and you may need mild painkillers to manage discomfort.  Breast lift with fat transfer requires a recovery time of around six weeks. During this time, you should avoid strenuous upper body exercise and excessive sun exposure in the treatment area.

Timing of Your Procedure & Breastfeeding

One of the most significant benefits of non-surgical breast lifts is that it does not disrupt the milk ducts of the breast, so it does not affect breastfeeding. Open surgical breast reductions must be explicitly timed to avoid affecting breastfeeding but also avoided in the early post-partum period because of hormonal changes.
