Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
How is a Breast Lift procedure performed?
Dr. Soler performs a breast lift under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. You will go home with only a light dressing over the incision area. Any slight discomfort can be controlled with oral medication. You can even begin light activities within a week or 10 days from your surgery date. Dr. Soler sees many breast lift patients from all the Tampa Bay area.
Is Mastopexy covered by insurance?
Since the procedure is considered cosmetic, Breast lifts are not covered under insurance. Any risks or individual suitability of Mastopexy should be discussed with Dr. Soler during your one on one consultation. Even though all surgical procedures carry a slight degree of risk, any major complications are not foreseen in a breast lift surgery. Any minor complications that may arise do not hamper the end result of your surgery. Dr. Soler’s office is conveniently located in Tampa and is located just outside of downtown Tampa.
