A breast lift, called a mastopexy, is much more than lifting the breast. A surgeon’s goal is to lift, reshape, and create an aesthetic shape of the breast. This is not easy to do well.. The shape of a breast changes significantly with age. After a pregnancy or two, the breasts stretch out, lose support and fall. Obviously, once the breast drops, the shape will not be the same.
My preference is to use a lollipop type technique, which is to create a scar that is around the areola and a vertical scar along the lower breast. In order to get the best shape, I reshape the breast by repositioning the breast tissue internally to improve shape and fullness of the breast along the upper and medial part of the breast. It may take a couple of weeks to see the true shape of the breast. It will take 6 to 8 months before seeing the final results from the operation.
I pay meticulous attention to detail in drawing out the special pattern that I believe will lift, reshape and create an aesthetic shape breast. The attention to detail during the operation is also very important. I also use many internal sutures to make sure that the scars will turn out as very fine lines.
There are other options to both lift and augment the breast, which will be detailed in the next section, Breast Lift with Augmentation.
I believe in improving breast shape and keeping it looking Natural for the Manhattan communities of West Village, Greenwich Village, Soho, Gramercy, Union Square, East Village, Lower East Side, Tribeca, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.
