About Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery is a body contouring procedure that lifts and tightens the breasts by removing loose skin and tightening the healthy tissue and skin to create a more youthful and healthier look. This cosmetic breast surgery is reserved for women who have lost breast shape and volume and who are experiencing breast sag due to aging and gravity, as well as weight loss or pregnancy. Huge advancements in mastopexy techniques have made this aesthetic surgery so successful that new statistics from the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) refer to an approximate 70% increase in demand since 2000. Plastic surgeons Drs. James Romanelli, David Pincus, and John Layliev perform this surgery using the most state-of-the-art methods, carefully choosing the correct technique according to the degree of sag present as well as the desired outcome. Call our office in Huntington, NY on Long Island to learn more today.

Ideal Candidates

Some women come to Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery believing they are candidates for implants only, but after a private assessment it may be realized that a breast lift will provide a better outcome. This is due to the significance of sag that is shown. Patients whose breasts point downward typically need a lift to reduce the skin deformity and lift the breasts to a higher position. If you have nipples that droop downward and your breasts appear stretched, a mastopexy (breast lift) can dramatically help their appearance. Patients contemplating a breast lift should be in good health and at a healthy weight. Even though breast implants may be desired, in so many cases, a lift is all that it takes to add the shape and size that is hoped for.

Surgical Technique

A breast lift takes approximately two hours or more and is performed with the patient under general anesthesia. The timing for this procedure is dependent upon the complexity of breast sagging present. The surgical technique can include an incision placed only around the areola, an incision around the areola that also extends to your natural breast fold, and finally, an incision that also includes the lower breast fold crease. The choice of incision depends on the laxity of the breast tissue and skin as well as the position of the nipple.  After making the incision, any loose, unhealthy skin is removed along with fat and tissue that is not needed and the nipple position is then raised. Our surgeons will review with you which technique will best optimize the appearance of your breasts.

What To Expect

The recovery for a breast lift surgery is more extensive than a breast augmentation. After the procedure is completed, you will wear a medical compression bra to diminish swelling. Also, a small draining tube is inserted near the incision site to help with excess draining that can often occur after mastopexy treatment. After surgery, the swelling will diminish within about a week. We will provide detailed, home incision treatment care instructions to help your healing process. Aesthetic results after a surgical breast lift are noticeable after a few weeks as the new shape take their higher placement on your chest wall. Your breasts will look perkier and natural.
