What Questions Should I Ask My Plastic Surgeon About Breast Lift Surgery?


You’ve been thinking about getting a breast lift for some time. Maybe your breasts have lost their youthful firmness and shape, or you’re dealing with excess skin. You may have also noticed that the tissue around your nipple and areola has become stretched over time.

A breast lift can be an excellent way to address these changes. And a consultation is the perfect opportunity to learn if the procedure is right for you. Of course, it’s also a chance to ensure that your plastic surgeon is a good fit.

Asking these and other questions will help you get the most out of your breast lift consultation.

Are you certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery? Can you tell me about your plastic surgery training?

Any licensed physician can legally perform plastic surgery in America — but that certainly doesn’t mean they are well qualified. You should only put your trust in a reputable and experienced plastic surgeon who has met rigorous standards for board certification.

Dr. John Corey is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is also a member of both the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In addition, he has received extensive training in Brazil and here in the United States. His time in Brazil taught him to see the artistic side of plastic surgery.

How often do you perform breast lift surgery?

Breast lift procedures are a primary part of Dr. Corey’s practice. He frequently performs this procedure, and it is highly-requested among women in the Scottsdale area. Dr. Corey has practiced here in Arizona since 1993, helping women achieve beautiful and natural-looking results through this and other cosmetic breast surgeries. You can view before and after photos of his breast lift patients.

Am I a good candidate for this procedure? If so, what surgical technique do you recommend for me?

You may be an ideal candidate for breast lift surgery if you are physically healthy and want to enhance your breast appearance. Dr. Corey will evaluate your unique concerns and anatomy to make sure a breast lift is the right solution. If you are a good candidate, he will explain your options and recommend the appropriate surgical technique, which may be a donut lift, a lollipop lift, or an anchor lift.
