About Breast Lift Surgery
Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Theodore T. Foley performs breast lift surgery to reposition and correct low hanging breasts. During the procedure, sophisticated tightening techniques are used to remove excess skin that restore the shape and perkiness of the breasts. Women often experience altered breasts because of aging, breastfeeding, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations. Whatever the reason, Dr. Foley can create a unique treatment plan to achieve your cosmetic goals at Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Central Pennsylvania in Camp Hill, PA. Results produce a flattering breast contour and sexy lift that will re-ignite your self-confidence. Women who undergo this procedure often receive a tummy tuck or mommy makeover.

"Dr. Foley was amazing. He helped turn a deeply distressing situation (double mastectomy from breast cancer) into something where not only did I have hope of looking "normal" in the future, but that the results were actually better than I had hoped they would be. He explained everything in detail, which was comforting and empowering. Highly recommend!"- S.B. / Facebook / Dec 18, 2019

Do I Qualify?
During your breast lift consultation, you will receive a thorough assessment where the surgeon will evaluate your current breast size and shape by taking measurements. The surgeon may also assess the breast symmetry, skin elasticity, and bone structure during your consultation. Candidates for breast lift surgery should be non-smokers in good health who have a least one of the following concerns:
- Decreased breast volume
- Altered breast shape
- Pendulous breasts
- Asymmetrical breasts
- Large or stretched areolas
- Downward pointing nipples
What to Expect
There are three different types of breast lift incisions that may be used depending on your unique factors. The doctor will choose one or more incision patterns for your operation based on the current size and elasticity of your breasts and areolas. After breast lift surgery, you will be wrapped in a sterile surgical dressing and a medical compression bra. We recommended that you wear something comfortable since your chest will be swollen and sore for approximately 1 – 2 weeks. All patients are advised to take it easy the first 2 – 3 weeks after surgery and avoid physical activities. A full recovery can take anywhere from 6 – 8 weeks. Please call our office immediately if you have any questions or concerns during your recovery.
To give you the best results, we use only cutting-edge breast lift techniques and place incisions in areas of the breast that are less visible or easily covered. You will be given instructions on how to care for your surgical wounds during your recovery to speed your healing and minimize the appearance of scars, but all patients will have some degree of scarring.
In some cases, your best results will require moving the nipple to a higher position once the extra skin or stretched-out areola is repaired. This will improve the overall appearance.
During the initial consultation, we are happy to help you learn more about the differences between a breast lift and breast augmentation and give our opinion on which procedure is best for your goals. Some patients may have a breast augmentation combined with a breast lift to get a fuller and perkier bust.

Cost of Breast Lift Surgery
The cost of a Breast Lift ranges on average from $7,600. If you are comparing prices between different plastic surgery practices, make sure you are comparing the fees which include all aspects of your upcoming surgery. These prices include the physician, anesthesia, and facility fees assuming that your surgery is being completed in a surgery center. If your surgery needs to be performed at the hospital, the fees will be ~$1500-$2000 more depending on the procedure, the surgical time, and whether or not you choose to stay overnight at the hospital. Also, your best choice for a cosmetic procedure of any kind is to choose a plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Theodore Foley, who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who is local to you. Not only will you receive the best surgical care that way, but you will also receive the best postoperative care. At Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Central PA, we encourage patients to call for a complimentary personal consultation with our plastic surgeon so a customized quote can be prepared for you by our staff.

Prices are subject to change and are our current estimate of the price which is inclusive of physician, facility, anesthesia at a surgical center. Some procedures, which do not require anesthesia, may be done at our office and would not then entail an anesthesia fee. If patients need to have their surgery at a hospital, prices are typically more expensive and will be outlined after consultation.
