An expert breast lift surgeon who has innovated the techniques of breast lift, many consider Dr., Kronowitz the "best" of the breast lift. His breast lift surgery uses a short, vertical scar, while creating a breast shape that resembles an augmented breast. In Houston, Dr. Kronowitz also performs breast lift and breast augmentation using breast lift surgery with breast implants. Of course, many patients want a breast lift without implants for their breast lift procedure. Although a breast lift and breast augmentation with breast implants or fat transfer to breast is popular with his patients. With fat transfer breast augmentation, Dr. Kronowitz injects fat (stem cells) into the breast lift for a larger, more-full appearing breast shape without the need for breast implants. The fat transfer also rejuvenates the skin by reducing the skin laxity, and by improving stretch-marks and thinned-out breast skin that can occur after having children. With Dr. Kronowitz, breast lift cost is reasonable, especially with his experience. Price $3570.*
Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted.
A woman's breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:

Breast lift surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else's desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image. A breast lift is a good option for you if:

Your breast lift surgery can be achieved through a variety of incision patterns and techniques. The appropriate technique for you will be determined based on:
Step 1 - Anesthesia
Genrral anesthesia is administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure.
Step 2 - The incision
There are three common incision patterns:
Step 3 - Reshaping your breasts
After Dr. Kronowitz makes the incisions:
Step 4 - Closing the incisions
After your breasts are reshaped and excess skin is removed, the remaining skin is tightened as the incisions are closed. Some incision lines resulting from breast lift are concealed in the natural breast contours; however, others are visible on the breast surface. Incision lines are permanent, but in most cases will fade and significantly improve over time. Many women desire the smallest scar possible. However, Dr. Kronowitz will recommend the incisions which best suit your anatomy. Listen to Dr. Kronowitz and do not diminish your result by demanding an incision that will not be appropriate for you. Sutures are layered deep within the breast tissue to create and support the newly shaped breasts. Sutures, skin adhesives and/or surgical tape may be used to close the skin.
Step 5 - See the results
The results of your breast lift surgery are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover and realize the fulfillment of your goal for breasts which have been restored to a more youthful and uplifted position.
The decision to have breast lift surgery is extremely personal, and you'll have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications are acceptable. You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks and potential complications.
The risks include:
These risks and others will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It is important that you address all of your questions directly with Dr. Kronowitz.
Some women may want to consider placement of a breast implant in addition to the breast lift. An implant can provide improved upper breast fullness or cleavage. Implants can be placed at the same time.
After your breast lift procedure is completed, dressings or bandages will be applied to the incisions. You'll need to wear an elastic bandage or support bra to minimize swelling and support your breasts as they heal.
You will be given specific instructions that may include how to care for your breasts following surgery, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health, and when to follow up with your plastic surgeon.
Be sure to ask Dr. Kronowitz specific questions about what you can expect during your individual recovery period.
The results of your breast lift surgery are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover from surgery. The final results of your breast lift will appear over the next few months as breast shape and position continue to settle. Incision lines are permanent but will continue to fade over time.
The results of your breast lift surgery will be longlasting. Over time, your breasts can continue to change due to aging and gravity. You'll be able to retain your new look longer if you:
Breast surgery should be entertained after child bearing is completed. Changes that occur in the breasts during pregnancy can minimize or reverse the improvement a breast lift provides. Likewise, significant weight loss after breast surgery can negatively impact breast appearance.
Following Dr. Kronowitz's instructions is essential to the success of your surgery. It's important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion, or motion during the time of healing. Dr. Kronowitz will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.
