Stunning Before & After Photos
Many women who would like to see improvement in the appearance of their breasts will benefit greatly from a breast lift houston (mastopexy). This procedure lifts the position of the nipple so that it sits higher on the chest wall. In addition, the surrounding tissue is tightened, and excess skin is removed. The result is a perkier, more youthful appearance.
After attending universities in London and Windsor, Ontario, Canada, Dr. Steinberg went to St. George’s, Grenada, where she completed two years of basic science classes. She then graduated Magna cum Laude from SGU and matched in a general surgery residency in Brooklyn, New York, where she had the opportunity to work with two plastic surgeons while scrubbing in.
Dr. Steinberg was able to gain valuable experience in plastic surgery by rotating with the late, great Dr. William Zamboni upon transferring to the University of Nevada, School of Medicine.
She then continued her pursuit of knowledge and skill by training for three more years in plastic surgery at the Houston Medical Center, the world’s largest medical center, with some of the world’s best plastic surgeons at the prestigious Houston Methodist Hospital.
Dr. Ashley Steinberg has earned the Rising Stars Top Doctor award in Texas for three years in a row and has completed over 1500 plastic surgery procedures.
If I could give her 6/5 stars I would!! Dr. Steinberg has done my Botox/Dysport multiple times. She is very thorough and does a fabulous job. My budget for botox is not large, but I like to get multiple areas done (forehead, between the brows, eye brow lift, crows feet, masseters). She always takes this into consideration and makes a little go a long way. She’s even taken care of my RBF lol!
I have always been 100% satisfied with my results and personally know many people that would say the same.
Dr. Steinberg is a meticulous surgeon with amazing bedside manner. I couldn’t be happier with my results. I was quite nervous prior to my surgery and she made me feel comfortable and at ease. Her humor and confidence coupled with her technical skill make her my number one recommendation for all of my family and friends. As a bonus, her office is beautiful and staff is friendly and helpful.
I highly recommend Dr. Steinberg! I had a breast reduction and tummy tuck 360 in March and I am so happy with my results! Dr. Steinberg and the staff went above and beyond my expectations. I consulted with other physicians before I went to P.S. for my surgery but after one visit there, I knew that I wanted her as my surgeon. She has a great bedside manner and calmed my fears before the surgery and she and the nurses have promptly answered any question I have had.
Dr. Steinberg performed injections for my facial alopecia. Her tactfulness, compassion, and empathy during the injection process not only made me feel like she truly cared for the way I was feeling, but that I was in highly skilled and professional hands. The way she deals with patients is undoubtedly fantastic, and her injections yielded successful results when numerous other doctors couldn’t find success in the same area. Thank you so much, Dr. Steinberg!
If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and wished your breasts sat higher on your chest, a breast lift may be for you. This procedure does not involve the insertion of implants to make your breasts larger. Rather, it is a surgical procedure that literally lifts the breasts and results in a more youthful appearance.
It fixes droopy, sagging breasts, which may have been the result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuation, and/or gravity and aging.
Breast augmentation (colloquially known as a “boob job”) involves the insertion of breast implants – either made of silicone or saline. Breast augmentation is a good option for individuals who don’t have a lot of sagging but who lack volume and overall fullness. Patients who want to go up one or more cup sizes will likely be best suited to breast augmentation. On the other hand, a breast lift helps women who have nipples that sit lower than the inframammary fold (the crease beneath the breasts).
For these women, the nipple can simply be lifted, excess skin can be removed, and the tissue can be tightened — all of which will result in the appearance of larger breasts that sit higher on the chest wall.
It’s important to note that not everyone qualifies for breast lift mastopexy surgery, and in some cases, a breast augmentation can be more beneficial than a breast lift.
Qualifying candidates must be in good physical and mental health. It’s best to be a non-smoker. It’s important to have realistic expectations about your breast lift surgery. A breast lift can boost your self-confidence and give you perkier, more youthful breasts.
Dr. Steinberg can help you decide whether a breast lift or a breast augmentation is best for you personally. Additionally, remember that in some cases, both procedures are used together for an ideal result. You can also explore natural fat transfer breast augmentation.
A mastopexy or breast lift is a safe and effective procedure with relatively few risks of complications. As you discuss your breast lift options with Dr. Steinberg, you will inevitably decide upon one of the following variations of this surgery:
The anchor lift is considered the traditional breast lift technique. This procedure involves three incisions: one around the perimeter of the areola, another from the edge of the areola down to the breast fold, and a third along the line of the breast fold (beneath the breast). After the incisions are made, excess tissue and skin is removed, and the incisions are closed.
This type of breast lift suits patients who only have a moderate amount of drooping. It involves just two incisions: one around the perimeter of the areola and another from the edge of the areola down to the breast fold.
Finally, some patients will only need their nipples repositioned if they are situated too low on the breasts or are excessively large.
Breast lift surgery is an outpatient procedure. This means that you’ll be able to go home shortly after your procedure concludes. Just be sure to have someone trustworthy there to take you home.
When you arrive at the accredited surgical location, you’ll be directed to a pre-operative holding area. There, staff will help you prepare for surgery, and you will have a brief meeting with Dr. Ashley Steinberg. She will be able to answer any remaining questions you may have. She’ll also make several markings on your skin, which will aid her later during your breast lift procedure.
Finally, you’ll be taken to the operating room where an anesthesia provider will put you to sleep in preparation for surgery. The surgery itself should last between two and four hours.
Your body will need adequate time to fully recover from your surgery. It will be at least one week before you are able to return to work. It will be at least two or three weeks before you’ll be able to return to your regular activities and at least six weeks before you can fully exercise again. During your recovery period, you will see Dr. Ashley Steinberg regularly for post-operative checkups.
Like other major surgeries, breast lift surgery comes with some possible risks and complications. These include but are not limited to:
To reduce the risk of complications, it is advised that breast lift candidates not smoke or use tobacco.
How much does a breast lift cost in Houston Texas?
The cost of a breast lift can vary greatly, depending on the type of surgery you choose and whether or not breast augmentation is included in the procedure. Overall, however, you expect to pay between $8,500 and $12,000 for breast lift surgery, with or without an implant.
Do breasts sag after a breast lift?
Just as time and gravity caused your breasts to sag or droop in the first place, more time may cause more drooping and sagging. However, your breast lift procedure will certainly reverse the initial effects of gravity and aging for a significant period, and maintaining an even healthy weight after surgery will help reduce further sagging as well.
Factors that will contribute to how soon and how severe sagging may be after surgery include skin quality, overall breast size, pregnancy, and weight loss and gain.
Will a breast lift change my bra size?
In some cases, your bra size may change after a breast lift. Because they will be lifted, for instance, your breasts may feel larger than usual. On the other hand, excess tissue and skin will likely be removed, which can actually result in a smaller breast size. It’s best to be fitted for your ultimate bra size after all of your healing has concluded.
How painful is a breast lift?
Moderate pain and discomfort is to be expected after breast lift surgery. You may experience tingling, intermittent acute pain, burning, and/or stiffness and tightness. Your nipples may feel hypersensitive, or, conversely, you may experience some numbing effects. Pain medication and other care instructions can help reduce pain, swelling, and discomfort.
Can I combine a breast lift with other procedures?
Yes. You may choose to get a breast lift with implants, for example, or you can pair a breast lift with a body contouring procedure such as labiaplasty, liposuction or a tummy tuck. Breast lifts are often included in mommy makeover procedures as well.
What will my scars be like after a breast lift?
Unfortunately, all breast lifts will result in at least some scarring. Still, Dr. Steinberg, with her extensive experience and cutting-edge technology, will help you experience as little scarring as possible. Exactly what scars you have and where they will be located will depend on what type of surgery you undergo.
