What types of breast lift are there?
There are 3 main types:
Peri-areolar (“doughnut”) type
This procedure only lifts your nipple. It is used when your nipple is low but your breast is not too loose. So, it is not helpful if your breasts are quite low. It can lift your nipple up to 2cm by making an incision around the areola.
Vertical ( “lollipop”) breast lift
This type is the most common. It improves loose breast tissue as well as low nipples.
The vertical lift makes an incision around your areola as well as down the front of your breasts. So both your nipple and your breast can be lifted significantly with this technique.
Anchor breast lift
This is an extended version of the vertical lift.
An incision is made around your areola, down the front of the middle of your breast and also in the crease below your breast. So this technique improves very loose breast tissue.
Do I need a breast lift or breast implants?
Many women are uncertain about this. Dr Szalay often needs to examine your breasts to answer this question. He will ask you what your goal is. So this will include where you would like your breasts to sit as well as the final size you want.

Can I have a breast lift and implants at the same time?
This is possible providing the implant size is 450cc or less. So if you want a 500cc implant, Dr Szalay would stage the procedures.
Is it possible to have a breast lift without implants?
You can have this procedure without implants if you are just seeking firmer, higher breasts with a better nipple position.
A lift alone however, will not provide upper fullness. Many women choose to have implants as well as a lift in order to achieve upper fullness.
The cost for a consultation with Dr Szalay is $75.
The cost of a breast lift is from $8200.
A breast lift and implants is from $14,500.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner
