Breast Lift Surgery in Miami, FL
Average Cost: From $8,500
Over time or due to circumstances outside your control, your breasts may begin to droop. Dr. Maercks offers breast lift surgery with augmentation to ensure that you are happy with the way your body looks. This procedure can resize and reposition the nipple, and get rid of the droopy look you hate.
Breasts droop for many reasons over time, including:
- Major weight loss
Ideal candidates for a breast lift are those who don’t smoke and aren’t pregnant, but deal with a droopiness of the breast and/or nipples that point the wrong way. Breast lift surgery can correct the position and shape of the breasts.

Categorizing the Breast
During your consultation with Dr. Maercks, your breasts will be categorized by the way they droop.
- Mild droop – nipple is level with the breast’s crease
- Moderate droop – nipple is situated below the breast’s crease
- Severe droop – nipple points downward and is situated at the lowest point of the breast
A severe droop can require more incisions, while a mild droop only requires one incision to fix the problem.
What to Expect
This procedure is often done on an outpatient basis. Each patient is different, and surgery ranges between one and three hours. A minor breast lift only requires a local anesthetic, while those with more severe cases may be placed under a general anesthetic.
Incisions may be made vertically underneath the nipple, horizontally on the breast’s crease or around the nipple, depending on the specific patient. The breast is reshaped after incisions are made and any excess tissue or skin has been removed from the breast.
After the reshaping, the areola and nipple are repositioned, and sutures are used to close the incisions.
After Your Procedure
A breast lift typically requires several weeks for recovery, although you may be required to limit activity for up to six weeks. Bruising, pain and swelling are common after surgery, but can usually be managed with light pain medication. Scars may be noticeable but often fade over time, and many patients report a small change in nipple sensation.
While all surgery involves some risks, the breast lift procedure is fairly straightforward and uncomplicated. Call us today at 305-328-8256 to learn more.
