When it comes to breast lifts the most common questions I get each day concern the probability, risk, and/or how we can avoid scarring.  While I would like to be able to offer patients a 'scarless' breast lift, the reality is that breast lifts will always require incisions and to get a great cosmetic result the type or placement of incisions is not dependent upon what I would prefer to do but rather it is dependent upon how much breast sag or ptosis a patient exhibits, the patients balance between skin and breast tissue and where this laxity in skin and tissue exists.

“Adding a breast implant to the procedure sometimes allows the surgeon to shorten or even eliminate scarring, since the implant will then take up some of the slack caused by the breasts’ sagging,” says Fort Worth, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Heistein. “Some breast augmentation patients may even be candidates for a radiofrequency treatment called BodyTite, which can provide a slight lift without requiring additional surgery.”
All scars are visible initially following surgery. Thereafter, some patients heal with virtually invisible scars, while others are more prone to prominent scarring. Past scarring from previous injuries and/or surgeries may be indicative of how prone an individual may be to visible scarring. This could influence Dr. Jugenburg's decision on how best to perform a Breast Lift procedure (or cosmetic breast surgery in general) in order to achieve an optimal balance between breast
Choosing a liposuction surgeon based on the lowest price might ultimately be the most expensive choice, If the initial cosmetic results are so bad that another surgeon must be paid to repair the work of the first liposuction surgeon. Among the most common undesirable outcomes of liposuction are 1) incomplete liposuction with very little evidence that liposuction was actually done, 2) excessive liposuction producing an unnatural or disfigured appearance, 3) irregular and uneven results with unsightly depressions in the skin, and 4) large scars that reveal that the patient has had liposuction. Caveat emptor (Buyer beware).
Office liposuction under tumescent local anesthesia costs from about 4-7500, and more extensive procedures need to be done in the operating room under general anesthesia. Depending on the time the cost can go up to 15,000. Multiple areas are discounted in the sense that when done in the operating room under general, the additional areas are charged by the total time, not per area, which is a savings.
The cost of a butt surgery is an important consideration among most patients planning cosmetic surgery to enhance their contour and acquire a fuller, rounder, sexier derriere. However, unlike other plastic surgery procedures, a butt augmentation is the most surgeon-dependent one. Of course, it goes without saying that you do need to find elite plastic surgeons with stellar credentials and a wealth of experience in the particular cosmetic surgery procedure so that you can ensure optimal results. This is one of the most distinct cases when cheap and quality do not go hand-in-hand. It is important to understand that your budget can indeed affect the outcome so it is strongly advised to balance a lower price tag with other factors, such as the doctor's training and experience, before making a final decision.
Cost is incredibly variable. It depends on the city and the provider. If you go to a plastic surgeon in New York City, it costs a lot more than seeing a non-plastic surgeon in a rural area. There are plenty of non-plastic surgeons offering discount liposuction. But, this can be somewhat risky due to their limited training backgrounds. And bad liposuction is very difficult to fix - I perform a lot of revision liposuction trying to fix poorly performed liposuction.
Following surgery, Breast Lift scars are red and normally slightly raised, but over 3 – 6 months after surgery they usually fade and flatten out, becoming thin, barely visible lines. For incisions along the areolar border, the scars are usually partially disguised by the skin color contrast (between the dark areola and lighter breast skin) and the uneven surface of the areola.
Finally, patients that cannot quit smoking, which is a critical necessity that can have an impact on the final outcome, for the pre-op period, as well as the recovery phase, are not considered not good candidates for any cosmetic procedure, including Brazilian butt lift. The same goes for binge drinkers. Now, if a patient insists on undergoing the surgery, despite the doctor's recommendations, then they should expect significantly increased costs if the plastic surgeon is willing to take the risk and operate on that patient.

We think you shouldn’t have to wait to look better, and more importantly, feel better about yourself. To help our patients afford liposuction, we offer financing options. When you apply, we’ll take a look at your credit history to determine your qualification and financing amount. Upon approval, you can book a date for your procedure. Afterward, you’ll make monthly payments. Financing can help you get where you want to be sooner rather than later.
Scars are inevitable after any incision in the skin, of course, because scarring is part of the body’s “self-repair” process. Breast lift surgery, in my experience, is a very satisfying procedure for the vast majority of patients–even with the unavoidable, often minimal, scarring. Scars may be in an anchor shape, in the crease below the breast and from the center of the crease up to the areola, although there are other types of scarring. When you choose an experienced surgeon, you’ll find that your breast lift scars are well hidden, even when wearing low-cut clothing. This is one of the signs of a skilled breast lift surgeon.
