Breast Lift / Mastopexy
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, enhances the breast appearance by removing excess skin and tightening the underlying tissue to create a refined breast contour. Demands for breast lifts have grown more than 70% since 2000 based on The American Society of Plastic Surgeons statistical data.
If pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuation, aging, gravity, or heredity has left your breasts sagging and without their once youthful perk, a breast lift is an effective way to redefine your youthful appearance. The uplifted profile of the breasts will boost your confidence immensely.
Breast lift surgery is simply the lifting and reshaping of your breast skin and tissue to achieve a firmer look and feel. A breast lift alone does not add volume, though it can be performed in conjunction with Breast Augmentation with Implants or Fat Transfer Surgery for further enhancement of the shape and size of the breasts.
Breast lift surgery is the best option for women who are happy with the size of their breasts, but not the appearance of saggy breasts due to aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding or significant weight loss leaving excess skin or decrease in elasticity. While the size of the breasts may not have changed, the droopiness can produce a flattened or deflated look of the breasts.
How should I prepare for a breast lift?
Blood-thinning medication and supplements such as aspirin, Advil® / Aleve®, ibuprofen, Fish Oil and Vitamin E must be avoided 7-10 days before and after surgery. Smoking abstinence is mandatory for at least 4 weeks before and after surgery.
Your breast lift surgery is performed by making a series of incisions on the breast and around the areola tailored to your own unique needs and goals. Pulling the breast tissue up and repositioning the nipple and areola higher on the breast creates a lifting effect and addresses the size or appearance of your areola and nipple. As a result of the precise and artistic performance of the Breast Lift Surgery, you we will achieve lifted, reshaped and more youthful breasts with improved contour and firmness.
How long does a breast lift take?
The breast lift surgery takes on average 3-3.5 hours and is performed at the specialized surgical centers in either Long Island or Manhattan.
You will be sore and stiff especially during first 2-3 days after the surgery; therefore, we strongly recommend to rest at home and be very careful to avoid straining, lifting, or running. You should be able to start exercising again within 10-14 days.
The Breast Lift Procedure is safe but, as with other surgical procedures, complications could include infection, bleeding, loss of nipple sensation, asymmetry or poor scarring. The appearance of your breast lift scars will be significantly minimized over time and can be easily covered by clothing and swimsuits.
Patients experiencing any concerning symptoms are advised to call Dr. Danovich’s cell phone promptly.
You will enjoy the results of your breast lift immediately after surgery. However, you will see significant improvement as the skin heals completely. Usually, it takes 3 months to see final results. Breast lift surgery results are permanent*, but, depending on your age, you may consider revising the surgery after your skin relaxes with time.
